Japan is a land of technical wonders, and yet it also has very strong ties to tradition. Having said that, we shall concentrate on the former today, where over at the Display Innovation 2014 trade show that happened in Yokohoma City, Semiconductor Energy Laboratory (otherwise known as SEL for short) has just introduced a spanking new 8.7″ Super AMOLED display that has one extremely unique capability – that is, it can be folded into three.
At the Display Innovation 2014 trade show in Yokohoma City, Japan, Semiconductor Energy Laboratory (SEL) introduced an 8.7″ Super AMOLED display, which can fold in three. It sports 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution resulting in a pixel density of 254ppi. SEL introduced a smaller version of the same display measuring 5.9″ in diagonal, but it sported 720p resolution and didn’t support touch. Now, that’s changed an the company uses a c-axis aligned semiconductor for the backplane. The company is debuting a technology combining a top emission type and a capacitive touch panel for the first time. The 3-fold 8.7″ SEL display can be bent more than 100,000 times and the curvature bent it supports is of 2mm and 4mm radius.
