Samsung unveils Youm flexible-display tech at CES 2013

Although there have been rumors about a possible flexible display being developed by Samsung, it was not until the South Asian mobile manufacturer Samsung unveiled its flexible display ta the CES that the rumors finally died and reality emerged much to the surprise of many.

And those who witnessed Samsung unveiling its Youm flexible-display technology at CES' closing keynote, were of the opinion that the tech was nothing short of eye-popping.

Samsung displayed 5-inches in size phone-like device with a screen that wraps around the side edges

C|net in its post reports: Samsung brought out a handful of demo units around 5-inches in size to show to the press, including a phone-like device with a screen that wraps around the side edges and could therefore display information like text messages and other alerts without the user needing to view the entire screen. A similar design puts the wraparounds on the bottom, while another concept rolled out like a scroll.


During a brief viewing of the technology following the presentation, Samsung showed a small group of reporters a close-up of the screens, which were displaying still images and videos. Touch interactions with the tech were not shown off (since the displays were not hooked up to CPUs), but Samsung was keen to demo the possible form factors, from a screen bent like a question mark to more simple designs that form a small curl on the edges.

Samsung did not provide a price or release date for Youm.
