Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, on Friday said its recently developed unbreakable, bendable screen has passed safety testing in the United States, a step that will help the South Korean firm market the product.
Other flexible displays on the market, such as those used in the Apple Watch, have glass covers on top of the flexible display.
The display was certified by UL after withstanding 26 drops from 4 feet with no damage and holding up to extreme temperature testing.
Importantly, the screen has improved transparency, nearly akin to glass, allowing it to be installed on devices used closeup, such as smartphones, a Samsung official said.
Samsung Display's new screen is protected by plastic rather than glass, increasing flexibility and making it practically unbreakable, the firm said on its website.
The panel continued to function normally with no damage to its front, sides or edges.

‘Twitter Shadow Banning Prominent Republicans’ Is ‘Discriminatory and Illegal’
Like most of Trump's bold proclamations on the social media network, it is a day behind the news cycle and not entirely accurate. Twitter has denied secretly banning conservative politicians in the U.S. , after an article accused it of political bias.
Meghan Markles father upset over her sense of superiority
Thomas said he hoped to be reconciled with his daughter, who he hasn't seen since she Wednesday Prince Harry in Windsor in May. The retired TV lighting director went on to tell the British newspaper about Meghan wanting to have a child.
There was even a test in the video where they would use a rubber mallet to hit the display but it does not show any physical damages.
"The fortified plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices not only because of its unbreakable characteristics, but also because of its lightweight, transmissivity and hardness, which are all very similar to glass", said Hojung Kim of Samsung Display. The new panel even survived a subsequent test from a height of nearly six feet. However, devices that underwent "military-grade testing" can still break. Samsung Mobile president DJ Koh had previously told reporters to expect a folding phone by this year itself.
It could lead to a handset that can easily transform into a tablet - simply by unfolding it.
The device is described as something that can be 'folded or unfolded semi automatically'.
Samsung Display could supply this screen to multiple manufacturers, meaning we may see this type of screen on lots of phones in the near future. The technology giant released information about its latest screen creation.
