Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) showed off a number of flexible display screen technologies in Taipei on Thursday as part of a show promoting e-readers and e-paper.
One of the newest technologies from ITRI was a flexible 4.1-inch color OLED (organic light emitting diode) display.
"This is the first time we've showcased this OLED technology. It's more flexible and softer than before. It's for the next-era of portable devices," said John Chen, general director of the Display Technology Center at ITRI.
"We think OLED will work better than other technologies. There's no need for a backlight or a polarizer nor stacks of optical film," he added.
