Samsung to launch flexi displays in 2012

AUTHOR: Inavate

Samsung Electronics has brought its forecast for the launch of flexible displays forward to 2012, according to a company spokesman.

Although the fist products are tipped for use within mobile phones, the Korean company hopes to extend the concept to other devices soon after.

Prototype versions of the displays, shown at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in the year, were curved but secured within rigid cases.
