Samsung Display announced the creation of shatterproof screens for smartphones. This was reported on the website of the company. The new display is a OLED-matrix on a flexible substrate, where the coating is plastic. The development has received certification by an independent non-profit organization by definition of product safety Underwriters Laboratories.
“Reinforced plastic screen is very suitable for portable electronic devices not only because he was not fighting, but due to its lightness, transparency and hardness, which are very similar to glass,” said Hoyoung Kim, General Manager of the communications team Samsung Display Company.
The new display is tested according to the standards set by the U.S. Department of defense. The panel continued to function after falls from height of 1.2 m and 1.8 m, as well as exposure to high (71 °C) and low temperatures (-32 °C).
Samsung Display announced that the new display can also be used in cars, military, mobile devices, game consoles and tablets.
