The application of flexible screens to folding screen phones is just the beginning.
There are three typical design solutions for folding screen mobile phones: the first is a left and right folding opening and closing, closing is the ordinary screen of a smartphone, and the expansion is the large screen of a tablet; the second is a 360-degree rotating opening and closing, and the outward folding is The small screen is exposed, and the screen is completely hidden by folding inward; the third is the scroll opening and closing, and the flexible screen is unfolded or rolled up like an ink painting.
For current mobile phone products, there are three major breakthroughs in folding screens: firstly, the screen is flexible and foldable, which is an application with great visual shock and futuristic; secondly, it truly realizes a full-screen, which can use the back or border of the phone to place the camera And other components, there is no need to make bangs or punch holes on the screen; finally, it solves the convenience of large-screen mobile devices, and resolves the conflict between the largest field of view and the smallest volume.
The significance of flexible screens is to allow interactive windows to exist anywhere.
Flexible screens break through the concept that the screen is two-dimensional, allowing the screen to be attached to a single or complex curved surface, and the medium for people to interact with the machine is no longer limited to the traditional plane.
The size of the flexible screen is arbitrary, the shape is arbitrary, and the bending is also arbitrary. It is easy to arrange on any surface, any size, and any shape, so that all kinds of surfaces have photoelectric display, touch, and transmission. Electronic functions such as sense have become smart surfaces that facilitate information interaction.
The flexible screen replaces the rigid glass substrate with a flexible film substrate. The electronic layer is coated on an ultra-thin film of only a few micrometers. A large number of circuits and sensors are integrated in the electronic layer, and then arranged on the surfaces that are unlikely to integrate the chip, so that these surfaces suddenly become vital.
Many of the things around us are not founders, so our electronic carriers today can only be concentrated in a few founder devices, such as mobile phones and computers. Every surface in the future can be intelligent. Every object has a surface, so every object can be intelligent and can be networked.
Softbank Group Chairman Sun Zhengyi predicted that by 2020, the number of devices connected to each person will increase from the current two to a thousand. Flexible screens are turning this prediction into reality. Although not necessarily realized by 2020, today's flexible technology has begun to enter many aspects of our lives.
Our clothes, shoes, hats, tablecloths, and sofas can only be connected to the Internet after they are displayed and sensed; the walls, doors and windows, floors, decoration, and homes of buildings can only interact with us and have a smart surface. We provide more and better services; from the interior space of high-speed trains and smart cars to the exterior surfaces of home appliances and office equipment, all need to be equipped with flexible products.
In the world where everything is connected in the future, flexible screens will be ubiquitous, always available, unworthy, and unused. Therefore, flexible screens have both unlimited application space and huge market capacity. Perhaps the most imaginative person also paints incomplete future prospects.
The concept of flexible screens has exploded at the current stage. In essence, the panel industry dominated by China and South Korea has entered a new round of development and specific performance cycles. From the perspective of technology, the global panel industry is experiencing ) Transition to OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode).
