Samsung’s seventh-generation bendable phones could be the first to have a PHOLED screen type
The South Korean company Samsung is reportedly already planning steps for the design and production of Galaxy Z Fold7 and Z Flip7 phones with PHOLED screen technology. It is in fact a “phosphorcent” OLED screen that the company currently uses only for green and red pixels, and future Samsung flexible phones, i.e. seventh generation models, could “first hand” experience the extension of the use of this technology to blue pixels as well.
This should supposedly happen in 2025, although screens like this were originally planned for models that will come out next year, writes Wccftech. The reason for this is reflected in the fact that Samsung is allegedly working on a complete PHOLED solution, because there are certain problems in the production process.
This display technology promises improved screen efficiency, reduced power consumption and better battery life.
This will be reflected in the fact that the current fluorescent screens that have Samsung bendable phones provide an internal light efficiency of only 25 percent, and the PHOLED screens will reportedly offer 100 percent efficiency.
Although there is a challenge regarding the lifetime of phosphorescent material compared to fluorescent, Samsung Display is known for achieving impressive results. Given that there is still a little more than a year until then, we could expect further information that will give us an insight into this innovation, but also whether the competition will follow the South Cretan giant in the field of screens.
