SEL shows off Amazing CAAC-OS Flexible Displays

Flexible displays have been a hot topic this year, and the first two manufactures to really give it a go were Samsung and LG. The G Flex and Galaxy Round are more curved than “flexible” as it’s difficult to get all those components inside your smartphone to flex without breaking. The concept behind those devices are cool, but they can’t hold a candle to what a Japanese company by the name of SEL has come up with. Never heard of them? You’ll remember them after seeing what their “curved” prototype can do…

5SEL recently showed off some interesting tech with their side-roll and top-roll OLED displays. The displays take advantage of CAAC oxide semiconductors which allows them to achieve high resolutions on small and large displays. We won’t go into the techy details of how it works as we’re still picking our jaws up off the floor after watching the video.SEL Flexible display

What’s interesting is what SEL was able to achieve with their design  as the screen truly wraps around the devices edges which allows all sorts of cool things like wraparound LWP’s, and top/side-rolling notifications. Two of the devices that were shown off include a 5.4-inch 1280×960 display and a 3.4-inch display that clocks in at 960×540. In addition to the smaller displays, SEL has developed the largest OLED display in the world with a plastic substrate. The flexible 13.5-inch HD display sports 4k resolution, is 100 microns thick and weighs a mere 10g. Did we mention the flexible battery? They’ve got one of those too…flexible battery

CAAC-OS displays may be a term only hardcore technophiles are familiar with at the moment, but you can expect to hear the term more over the coming year. Check out the video below to see SEL’s amazing displays in action. You won’t be disappointed.
