There’s a sharper, cleaner fold this time, and there’s less gap between the folds. The 1.4R curvature of the Samsung Flex OLED delivers a sharper curvature, allowing for more compact and accurate smartphone designs. The staggering construction of the display layers reduces bending stress, allowing for such a narrow curvature. Real glass’ outstanding transparency and toughness, yet flexible.
Even with heavy use 100 times a day, UTG withstands more than five years of constant use. This is equivalent to withstanding over 200,000 folds and consistently performing well, according to tests verified by Bureau Veritas. The excellent transparency and hardness of real glass, but bendable. Even with heavy use 100 times a day, UTG withstands more than five years of constant use. Equivalent to withstanding over 200,000 folds and still performing well, according to verified Bureau Veritas testing.
The company has created a beautiful new website to showcase all possible form factors with its flexible OLED panels. The company calls its flexible displays “Flex OLED” and there are five subcategories: Flex Bar, Flex Note, Flex Square, Rollable Flex and Slidable Flex. Flex Bar is intended for foldable shell smartphones such as the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The Flex Note displays are intended for laptops with foldable displays. Flex Square is for foldable smartphones such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Rollable from the South Korean company Flexible screens can be used in devices with roll-up screens, and we may see such devices in the future. LG uses a similar OLED display in one of its roll-up TVs. The sliding screen Flex can be used in smartphones with a sliding screen. OPPO presented such a smartphone prototype earlier this year, but it has yet to be launched.

Samsung Display’s flexible OLED screens can be folded, rolled or slipped. They feature high brightness, HDR10 + content playback, a small bend radius (R1.4), and a better screen protector (UTG) than products from competing companies. The displays can be folded over 200,000 times, the equivalent of 100 folds, and unfold every day for five years.
