OLEDs ,unlike traditional leds,works on organic substances that glows when an electric current is passed through them. It is the new technology which is going to replace our traditional plasma screens because of its advanced features. The major advantage of these screens is FLEXIBILITY. Other advantages are faster response time than LCDs,consume significantly less energy, can be transparent when off ,thinner display-No backlight required,better contrast ratio,safer for the environment,wider viewing angle( up to 170 degrees) and OLEDs refresh almost 1,000 times faster than LCDs.
All companies are searching new concepts to implement this technique in thier mobile phones and tv screens. Like, Philips Fluid, Samsung Electronics‘ CEO announced that the company aims to bring fully-foldable screens sometimes near future,Nokia has also introduced a concept of foldable laptops.
