We have no idea what use flexible OLED screens are, but we know that we get excited whenever we see them. At a CES pre-show event, Samsung was showing off its latest and greatest OLED tech by demonstrating some unnaturally contorted prototype devices.

First up was "the world's highest resolution flexible AMOLED display". Although 800x480px isn't earth-shattering for a 4.5in screen, it was still impressive to see these crisp, clear and very vibrant displays twisted into some unusual positions.

These were joined by a 14in and a 19in transparent AMOLED screen, both of which had a 960x540px resolution. Although the effect doesn't translate too well into still photos, videos were shown running on a screen in front of a small diorama, which was clearly visible in the background. Although they may not find much use in consumer devices, we're told that they are more likely to be used in retail displays.

As they say, a picture says a thousand words, so go ahead and peruse our selection of pictures below.

You probably posted that link for the nice roll out display images, but:
the electronic ink has opened up a creative option for everyone as well doesn't require a charge to maintain an image producing amazing results. Power is necessary to change the image but not to view it. This is why OLED technology consumes 20% less power than LCD screens.
(which is wrong)
That author seems to totally confuse OLED with e-ink displays...
Yeah the text is a bit of a mess, I'll edit the link to avoid confusion - cheers!
