TDK has been showing off its new OLED film at the CEATEC conference in Chiba, Japan.
This flexible film surface can even show images while bending, giving it an immediate advantage over glass displays. TDK hopes to begin production of the film displays within one year, so it might not be such a long time before we see them popping up in our mobile devices.
Besides mobile phones displays, TDK sees this film material as a good fit for wearable electronics. Indeed, one of their mannequins at the TDK booth was sporting a wrap-around wristband display on its arm. This is reminiscent of some bendable prototypes displayed by Sony at last year’s CEATEC… which, incidentally, have yet to see the light of day.
