samsung publicly demonstrates next-generation stretchable oled display prototype
Whether it\'s their latest qled TV, Galaxy S8/S8 smartphone, or a convertible device like the brand --

Built-in devices have some (if not the best) monitors in their respective product categories.

It is not clear at the moment how far the display can stretch, but the image quality may drop if a threshold of over 12mm is pressed.
Samsung envisions the future of this stretch display for the wearable Internet of Things (IoT)
Equipment and automotive applications.
However, the company notes that prototype technology is difficult to produce on a large scale at this time.
Therefore, there is no disclosure of the date when the stretchable OLED display like this prototype will be released.
