In last January 2013 Samsung officially released their flexible OLED displays, naming it YOUM displays. YOUM panels are bendable - however it's likely that the very first product to manage those displays will in fact be rigid. The display is generally "curved" thought.
Many predicted that the very first products with flexible OLEDs are going to be mobile phones. Those phones will be lightweight and thinner compared to existing mobile phones , as well as the display will be much stronger (a plastic material based AMOLED will likewise also be shatterproof). It's also possible that Samsung will indeed utilize a curved display.
When are we going to see the very first YOUM product?
Samsung did not give a particular commitment, however it might seem that the company is looking to begin manufacturing YOUM panels in 2013. We think that the production volume will be minimal, and the panels will be somewhat more expensive when compared with glass based panels. The OLED Association states that the Note 3 Smartphone or tablet is going to be the very first product with a plastic OLED, 5 .9" or more in size. It will certainly ship in the quarter of 2013, however in limited quantities.
