When it comes to flexible display technology, companies such as Samsung probably come to mind. Recently there have been talks about a flexible tablet, and also the possibility of a flexible OLED TV which has been rumored for unveiling at CES 2014. Well the semi-good news is that the idea of a flexible OLED TV might not be so far-fetched, as Samsung’s co-CEO, Boo-keun Yoon, acknowledged that devices like that could be a possibility.
Samsung gets plenty of press for its phones, but TV is how it made its mark as a high-end consumer brand. The company often points to its Bordeaux line of LCD TVs (the ones with curved bottom edges reminiscent of a wine glass) from 2006 as an example of its design chops. Since then, it has held the No. 1 spot in the TV market. In fact, Samsung sells more televisions in the United States than LG, Sharp, Panasonic, Sony, and Toshiba combined, according to NPD Group. And its US market share is nearly double that of No. 2-ranked Vizio.
