Semicondoctur Energy Laboratory is showing off a new 8.7 inch flexible display that can be folded into thirds.
We probably won’t actually see phones or tablets that you can fold up like a tri-fold wallet until batteries, motherboards, and cases also become flexible… but technology like this brings us one step closer to bendy gadgets.
Flexible displays are also harder to break than rigid screens, and they allow gadget makers to create devices like phones, tablets, watches, and wristbands with curved displays.
SEL showed off a 5.9 inch 3-fold display earlier this year. The new screen isn’t just larger (and higher-resolution), it’s also touch-sensitive which means it could be used in tablets or other touchscreen devices.
The screen is an 8.7 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel OLED display.
