Samsung’s (005930) impending Galaxy S IV may not feature an unbreakable or flexible screen, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t working hard to get such high-tech displays onto its phones within the next year. Engadget reports that Samsung display panel spin-off Samsung Display is preparing to demonstrate a 5.5-inch, 720 pixel flexible screen at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Engadget cautions us not to set our expectations too high, however, because the display at CES will be “merely a component that could one day find its way into a smartphone, rather than a finished product that’s meant for consumers.” Even so, anyone looking for the next big innovation in smartphone tech has to be excited that Samsung is inching closer to getting these displays ready for primetime.
