Japanese manufacturer Sony has developed a flexible OLED panel, suggesting the company's interest in the technology is ongoing.
The 9.9-inch display offers a limited resolution of 960 x 54 pixels, at 111 pixels-per-inch. The display is a prototype, and was produced using a combination of glass substrates and film. During the production, the glass is removed, leaving two flexible substrates with colour filters and electronics, reports Geek.com. The production process is simple, and it is hoped this will lead to a low cost display.
The prototype is the culmination of work on Sony's existing OLED panels, and while the company may be behind rivals such as Samsung, it appears to be looking at a possible future for OLED technology.
