If you thought Samsung is now at the pinnacle of mobile technology with the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy Nexus, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, they have just released a video showing us what the future holds for smartphones and tablets. The Korean giant has just released a concept video featuring transparent AMOLED displays.
On the video, someone is shown using a flexible, paper-thin, and transparent tablet. The person walks around town using the transparent device. For now, it all looks like a device out of a sci-fi movie. However, it does show us what the future lies for mobile and tablet technology.
Transparent AMOLED displays have been keeping Samsung research and development labs quite busy for a few years now. In fact, its raw form has been featured at CES held every January. It definitely is fascinating technology, despite being in the development stages. It is AMOLED-based technology that lights up without having the need for back lights.
Although the flexible and transparent touchscreens are less likely to make an appearance on products by next year, we are now given an idea on what the future of the technology hold for us. We can’t help but feel excited. However, if ever Samsung manages to launch such a device in the market, Apple is likely to find a way to claim that Samsung’s flexible and transparent display infringes their patents. We’d actually be surprised if they didn’t.
Does Samsung’s transparent display excite you? Give us your thoughts.
