Samsung recently announced that the company has just developed what it called an “unbreakable” flexible OLED panel. The OLED panel is majorly developed for smartphones. The component has been certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Underwriters Laboratories is an organisation that works for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the US Department of Labour

The company, in its press release, opined that the panel passed the real-time durability test which is based on military standards that were set by the US Department of Defense.

Hojung Kim, who is the General Manager at Samsung Display, said: "the fortified plastic window is especially suitable for smartphones because of its lightweight, transmissivity and hardness, which are all very similar to glass".

The phone maker is expected to later use the OLED panel for automobile consoles. It also intends to use it for other purposes too - mobile military devices, portable game consoles and tablet PCs.

During the testing by Underwriters Laboratories, there was a string of drops. The first test came with 26 drops from 1.2 meters, and it was followed by high and low-temperature tests which were between 71 degrees and -32 degrees Celsius. The OLED panel has continued to function optimally after the series of tests it underwent. There was no damage done to the front, sides or edges of the component all through the time of testing the panel.

The OLED panel later experienced a few drops. It dropped from 1.8 meters, which is still higher than what the US military ever needed from its licensing companies. The panel continues to be operational without showing any signs of damage.

Samsung claims the OLED panel is unbreakable. After passing rigorous tests, the ‘unbreakable’ tag is now affirmed.

When the OLED panel is finally put to commercial use, it may completely eliminate the problems of display breakage. Samsung is expected to make huge sales from this product. The company was made the sole supplier of OLED panels by Apple for iPhone X in 2017. Apple is expected to make more orders for all their 2018 phones.

Some of the highlights of the component are:

  • The OLED panel has undergone tough tests and passed all tests conducted by the Underwriters Laboratories

  • The 'unbreakable' OLED panel was thrown from six feet without any signs of breakage

  • Samsung pointed out that the OLED panels can be used on many products


There is the possibility that the OLED panel may be incorporated into the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
