Am I the only one to see this picture as acne? kinda disgusting though
This is called Sid display week 2017; it is being held at the La convention center. I would like to know if you guys had attended this event before? If so, how can I obtain my ticket?
Cool! This kind of news gives us the "innovation" vibe.
2250ppi display! Best smartwatch display ever invented in that size.
Anonymous, 23 May 2017yes. you need at least 800 ppi for vr. maybe they will use it for vr.Hopefully
Its their technology showcase not real world uses. These technologies have to be implemented in real world then we can comment whether it will be good or bad. For now this tech has a lot of potential if used in right way. Not necessarily all these technogloies will be used in smartphone. Think smaller display technology(1.9") is used to make electronic viewfinder for cameras.
Claudiu.Lucian, 23 May 2017S8 is more fragile than G6...what were you saying? (it may stretch, but it's more brittle)Well, S8 does not have stretchy screen. Stretchy screen means it would have more elasticity that means it'll just stretch in or out depending on the impact. Stretchy screen does not mean curve.

Sonu4678, 22 May 2017Man, you guys are so skeptical of everything. It's always nice to see cool technologies. Let t... moreExactly. We might be hating on edge display phones, but I like the idea that there are displays that are bendable, for many other uses, many of them yet unknown. For now, I am appreciating something as minor as the Gear Fit, maybe tomorrow we will all appreciate something completely unexpected that this tech will have enabled?

1.96" UHD 4K display, i though sammy boy said 5.46" 4K Panel is useless and gimmick, maybe sammy want to make 4K smart watch or standalone vr headset that has 4K display each eye
Simon, 23 May 2017Frankly, I can't see a use in this as I also prefer flat displays, but I guess this is good fo... moreIt's just the first step, imagine ultimately a spherical screen, a real crystal ball style screen.
Anonymous, 22 May 2017Is it the picture want to show a evolve of volcano? It is showing the famous mount Fuji.. Stretchable display will allow images to literally pop out of the screen
This technology would be great for general mobiles as often people drop or crack / damage the screen... so if the screen was able to better tolerate deformation rather than shattering it could save a huge number of repairs / screen replacements in theory.
Likewise the tiny screen could be great in niche uses like as a screen on a game console to allow people to play while someone else watch's something else on the TV then when they are done you can switch back to the TV full screen ^_^ (just an idea of use)
