You may have seen recently that Samsung had supposedly developed an ‘unbreakable’ screen.
Well, that’s now just been certified by the Underwriters Laboratory.
Samsung announced earlier today that its recently-developed, unbreakable smartphone panel has just been officially verified by Underwriters Laboratories, an official testing company for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor. If you too are a little taken back by that statement, essentially what it means is that it’s been verified that Samsungs claims about their new phone screen are indeed correct and genuine.
In addition to being used on smartphones, the newly developed display is expected to find viable markets with other electronic gadgets such as display consoles for your latest car, mobile military devices, portable game consoles and tablet PCs for e-learning.
The new screen is a flexible OLED display with an unbreakable layer and an overlay window fastened to it.
“The fortified plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices not only because of its unbreakable characteristics, but also because of its lightweight, transmissivity and hardness, which are all very similar to glass,” said Hojung Kim, general manager of the Communication Team, Samsung Display Company.
According to UL, the unbreakable display developed by Samsung Display passed the rigorous real-time durability test that is based on military standards set by the U.S. Department of Defense. After a drop test administered at 1.2 meters (nearly 4 feet) above the ground 26 times in succession. So hopefully that should mean that there will be no more shattered screens from dropping your phone trying to open the boot of your car after the weekly shop - a real positive.
