Future Screens : Flexible OLED Displays

A research firm predicts that while there will be more money in flexible displays, consumers will likely have to wait until 2016 to get their hands

On May 24, Sony unveiled what it is calling the world’s first flexible, full-color organic light emitting diode (OLED) display built on organic thin-film transistor (TFT) technology. OLEDs typically use a glass substrate, but Sony researchers developed new technology for forming organic TFT on a plastic substrate, enabling them to create a thin, lightweight and flexible full-color display. The 2.5-inch prototype display supports 16.8 million colors at a 120 x 160 pixel resolution (80 ppi, .318-mm pixel pitch), is 0.3 mm thick and weighs 1.5 grams without the driver.
