Remember this concept video of the Nokia Morph Concept?

Check out the new displays that Samsung are working on.

  • Dual clamshell displays
  • 01:30 – Folding 5.3″ AMOLED clamshell display.

It has a 960 x 800 resolution (235 PPI), 26.2K colors, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 100K:1 contrast, > 100% NTSC color space.

  • 02:00 – Flexible 4.3″ AMOLED
  • 02:32 – Transparent 14″ AMOLED display. Look at the video playing here. Watch that becomes candy bar that becomes tablet that becomes newspaper

For the size, the resolution was quite low at 960 x 540 pixels (78 PPI) and 250 cd/m2 brightness.

Well not quite Nokia Morph but there’s strong resemblance in where Sammy’s displays are heading. Morph of course isn’t just about the visual side of the display (bending/being transparent) it’s also about the sensing, textures and solar charging.

Nokia’s looking into flexible screens too. Just this January we heard of Nokia’s patent application for phone displays.

Towards the end of September we saw some really cool things at Nokia Research Centre.

1. Nanowire sensing that senses environmental changes (Like Nokia Morph) detecting everyday chemicals like an eNose. Check out how it detects “Ethanol”. Real world applications? Checking air quality/pollution, medical  (analysis of sweat/saliva/blood/breath), food fat/salt/carb content/contaminants etc.

2. Stretchable electronic skin. Transformable shape devices.

3. Electrotactile feedback.

Beyond haptic feedback, this goes on to replicate textures and more genuine tactile response. Think of buttons that feel like a button and you can feel the edges around it and not just a flat panel of a screen.

Of course, the real world isn’t going to give a damn of however cool Nokia Morph eventually will be until we get the all important eye-candy UI. -_-

    though honestly jay , i find my brothers iphone a pain in the ass to use , often cant find out a return path and stuff . where as even s1 was “easy to use” but maybe that’s just becaues my first phone was a symbian and still is a symbian [ more precisely nokia] :S

      It’s the UI paradigm with the iPhone. Little if anything has a clear path. Unless apps are integrated and linked to the default apps then you’re up a creek.

      The number of default apps is also rather paltry
