Over at the SID 2017 that will be held in Los Angeles, California, the stretchable display will be demoed by Samsung.

Several analysts believe that Samsung's display technology is far more advanced than its competitors, like LG.

The panel to be displayed in Display Week has a diagonal of 9.1 inches and can be folded up to 12 mm in both directions, maintaining its high resolution.

After gifting us many cutting-edge technologies, Samsung is again all set to mesmerize us with the world's first "stretchable" display.

[It] can be stretched to be used for various high technologies, including wearable display, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and automobile display. It is claimed that the display can be indented by up to 12mm and revert back to its original shape without issue.

The screen that the company plans on demonstrating in L.A.is a 9.1-inch display that is capable of bending in on either side of the screen.

Before you get too excited however, do note that this technology is still in the early stages, so even Samsung Display itself can't say for sure when it will become a commercial product.

According to industry watchers, sales of the global flexible display market could rise to $15.5 billion in 2022, from $3.7 billion past year. However, according to research firm IHS Markit, flexible displays could make up almost 15 percent of the display market by 2024.

Those screens would dwarf current displays, as the standard iPhone 7 measures at 4.7 inches while the 7 Plus comes in at 5.5 inches.

Samsung has been busy working on a foldable display and is expected to launch a high-end folder smartphone due this year. When using the stretchable OLED display, they can attach a smartwatch to clothes or the body and move freely. However, The Korea Herald also mentions two other Samsung panels which we could see being employed sooner on mobile.
