Samsung's 'unbreakable' display survives UL scrutiny

By Jon Fingas, Engadget

[post_ads]When Samsung Display unveiled a in 2017, there was good reason for skepticism. Could you really stretch, squeeze and bash it as much as Samsung claimed? Apparently, the answer is yes. Underwriters Laboratories an "unbreakable" panel from the company as capable of surviving military-grade durability tests without damage. This included dropping it 26 times from a height of four feet and subjecting it to extreme temperatures. It even survived a drop test at 6 feet without any battle scars.

The key to its endurance is a flexible design with an unbreakable substrate and an overlay window that adheres "securely" to the panel. There have been flexible displays on the market (the uses one, for example), but they tend to use glass covers that partly defeat the point -- what good is an intact display if there's cracked glass on top? Theoretically, this could lead to truly shatter-resistant phones that don't involve like soft, easily-scratched surfaces.
And then there's the matter of when Samsung or its display customers will actually use the technology. Samsung will offer its panel for use in devices like phones, cars, game consoles, tablets and "mobile military devices," but that's contingent on both Samsung itself and partners lining up. Don't bet on the definitely having an extra-tough screen, then. This may be a long-term play rather than a hint at Samsung's near future.
