Those ultra-thin flexible OLED screens have a lot of promise, and it's easy to get carried away with design concepts using the nascent tech, rather than look at the reality. That's why this small, bendy OLED from Samsung is so refreshing: It's the real deal, albeit a prototype. At a tech demo in San Antonio, Samsung showed off this 6.5-inch flexible OLED. That's actually pretty big as these roll-up screens go, and the display is said to be more flexible than previous prototypes.
Since this OLED boasts better bendiness, it got me thinking: What would you do if you accidentally bent an OLED screen too far, permanently creasing the sleek display? Watching a creased screen would be way worse than a dead pixel, and I can think of a number of ways it could happen: Stuff gets piled on your gadget, you sit on it, etc. Does that make OLED gadgets more fragile than others? I would say yes. But is there a simple technological solution? What do you think?
