Samsung Debuts Slidable, Foldable Displays at CES

Samsung Display is showcasing several new innovations at CES this week, including the Flex Hybrid, a new display category that combines both foldable and slidable capabilities into one display and large-screen sliceable that the company says will be the prototype for future laptops.
In addition, Samsung is revealing its QD-OLED–which the company says will feature brighter and more realistic image quality thanks to the advanced optimization algorithm, Intellisense AI and new OLED HyperEfficient EL material.
Highlighted by Samsung is the Flex Hybrid, which combines foldable and slidable technology. Designed first for mobile devices, foldable technology is applied to the left side of the screen, and slidable technology on the right side. Users can view media on the 10.5-inch display in aspect ratio of 4:3 or on the 12.4-inch larger screen in 16:10 screen ratio.
A 17-inch slidable display, which was originally previewed at Intel Innovation 2022 in September, will make its first public appearance at CES. The display has two concepts: Flex Slidable solo for expanding the screen in one direction and Flex Slidable Duet for expanding in both directions. The display can be portable at 13 or 14 inches, but can be expanded to 17.3 inches.
For larger displays, Samsung is showcasing QD-OLED technology, which the company says is designed for optimum color and image quality without distortion at any viewing angle. This technology was also first introduced last year, but the company is adding QD-OLED displays to its 77-inch TV, the largest in the QD-OLED family that also includes displays of 55, 65, and 34 inches, as well as a 49-inch monitor.
These products also feature new advanced optimization algorithm Intellisense AI and new OLED HyperEfficient EL material to improve the color brightness of each RGB, the company says, resulting in a combined RGB color brightness of more than 2,000 nits.
Other products to be revealed at CES include Samsung’s New Digital Cockpit, essentially a combination of a 34-inch display with a 15.6-inch display for the self-driving vehicle market.
