Samsung Announces Youm, Official Name for Flexible and Unbreakable Display Technology

YouTube Preview Image

Back in December, Samsung released a video for everyone to have a glimpse at their futuristic technology. The video featured a bendable/flexible display attached to a device that took the place of your phone and tablet. We may not see that exact technology for some time, but what Samsung does have in the making is their new Youm technology which is lighter and practically unbreakable according to Sammy. 

In a recent report, devices with Youm displays could start shipping as early as 2013, so there is much to look forward to. Could you imagine being able to drop your device with no worries of cracking and shattering your display? Sounds like paradise.

    I don’t much care for the word “unbreakable”.  It sounds too much like “unsinkable”.

       I see what you did there. ;)

    hope it works better than the nexus,

    That’s a terrible name. I’m surprised they didn’t go with SUPER DUPER AMOLED OLED+++++

    That video is pretty misleading.

    yikes! Something tells me this is going to be horribly expensive at first.. new hardware tech always is… look at how much a DVD player with hardly no features cost back in 96-98.

    Would have been nice if the video showed real life use instead of a fake futuristic example…

      except xyboard was the final consumer device name. This is a component and really doesnt matter what they call it.

      Apparently the future also involves the invention of transparent chipsets, batteries and the like.

          I had forgotten about graphene too. I would expect to see something similar to the phones in earth final conflict before this though. Im excited either way.
