Foldable Screen – E Ink Introduced a Foldable Display

Foldable Screen E Ink

The company E Ink, that develops the technology of the same name, demonstrated a prototype of a flexible display based on electronic ink. In the future, this technology will allow manufacturers to produce folding e-books.

The prototype screen, shown at the SID Display Week, has a diagonal of 10.2 inches and a pixel density of 220 ppi. The screen was enclosed in a folding cover resembling a book cover. Like all displays working on e-ink, it consumes energy only when the content is updated. Overall, the display looks quite readable.

However, according to PCMag, there are a couple of disadvantages. Firstly, the screen has a glossy surface. Secondly, flexibility is still insufficient – the prototype has a relatively large bend radius and can’t be folded in half like a sheet of paper. If the company manages to improve the construction, we may see foldable electronic books and other e-ink mobile devices on the market very soon.
