Samsung Display made an announcement earlier today that they have developed an “unbreakable” OLED panel and that the display has been certified by Underwriters Laboratories.
Underwriters Laboratories is an official testing company of the U.S Department of Labor and is responsible for testing the standards from things that range from electronic products to cabling and photovoltaics, just to name a few.
According to them, the display not only survived 26 drops from 1.2 meters as well as one drop of 1.8 meters above ground (which is, by the way, higher than the U.S military standard testing), but also functioned as intended after being tested in both high and low temperature environments.
Samsung states that they have developed the display “with an unbreakable substrate and an overlay window securely adhered to it.”
The company expects to use the display not only in smartphones but also in automobiles, mobile military devices, tablet PC’s and portable game consoles as well.
Samsung did not, however, make a statement about when the displays will be available on the market. It’s safe to assume they will make an appearance during the Galaxy Note 9 unveiling in August.
