Samsung's extra-stretchable display can survive dents

  Samsung's extra-stretchable display can survive dents Flexible displays are nothing new. However, most of them don't live up to the dreams of flexible tech -- they may only bend in a limited way. Samsung thinks it can do better. It just unveiled a 9.1-inch prototype OLED display that's stretchable in seemingly every way imaginable: you can bend, roll and even dent it (up to half an inch deep) knowing that it'll revert to its original form. The technology is still very young, but Samsung believes the stretchy screen will be useful for everything from wearables to in-car displays. Imagine a very thin smartwatch that can take some knocks without smashing into pieces.

Galaxy S8... upcoming Note 8... and now, two Galaxy J phones.

Samsung's Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) phones appeared on a an official website for its "Kids Mode" app, spotted by SamMobile. The site's in Korean, but the phone names in English are clear, and are still live on the site at the time this was written (along with the J7 Pop and J7 Max). The only thing is, Samsung has yet to announce either of these two phones.

The Galaxy J series is Samsung's take on super-affordable Android smartphones. While super-premium devices suck up a lot more attention, lower-end phones are important for phonemakers like Nokia and Motorola -- and yes, Samsung too -- to make their names in emerging markets and other places where low prices matter. The J series is exactly the kind of phone we might see picking up Google's new Android Go software.

But at least one phone maker held firm with the processes it already had in place.

Samsung has already quietly released the Galaxy J3 (2017) earlier in May, a follow-up to an entry-level phone that was widely sold in the US and elsewhere. The new J3 gives us an indication of the J series' low price: $180, or about £140 and AU$241, converted.

The new J3 for 2017 has entry-level specs to match, like a 5-inch HD display, 2,600mAh battery, and 5-megapixel rear camera.

We know a lot less about the upcoming J5 or J7 (besides that they'll be Kids Mode compatible) but if last year's versions are any indicator, they could be a step up from the Galaxy J3 in terms of specs, size and price -- though still thoroughly budget buys.

Samsung declined to comment.

Forget flat and curved, Samsung's new display stretches .
The company has developed new OLED screen technology it says could eventually be used in wearables, cars and other devices.Samsung this week showed off new display technology that looks kind of like a trampoline. The 9.1-inch stretchable OLED display prototype, which Samsung called the first of its kind, can be flexed in two directions, unlike conventional flexible OLED displays that can be formed in only one direction (such as bending, folding or rolling).
