Samsung Display showed a new type of display for mobile devices called Rollable Flex OLED: it can be rolled and unrolled vertically like a roll of paper.

The Rollable Flex is 49 mm tall when rolled, and 254.4 mm when unrolled. According to Samsung Display, this allows you to easily convert it from a “smartphone” screen to a “tablet”.

The company also notes that while other folding or sliding screens can only increase their size by 3 times, the Rollable Flex increases by more than 5 times. According to it, this was achieved thanks to the use of a special O-shaped axis.

Samsung Display plans to show the Rollable Flex OLED at the annual industry conference SID Display Week 2023, which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from May 23 to 25.
