Samsung launches first transparent and mirror OLED displays
Samsung has surprised the tech world once again by showing the industry’s first mirror and transparent OLED displays at the Retail Asia Expo 2015 in Hong Kong, China. This is the first demonstration how such displays can be used in everyday life and how they have a place on the consumer electronics market.
The new displays feature Intel’s RealSense technology which allows users to create and see various virtual solutions like interactive closets or even see how certain clothes will look like when being worn. Samsung expects that the Samsung Mirror Display will replace conventional mirrors at some point in the future by serving both as a mirror and as a digital information hub. The Mirror OLED display delivers at least 50 per cent higher reflectance than competitive Mirror LCDs, greatly improved color gamut as well as an exceptionally high contrast ratio. In addition Samsung’s mirror displays do not require ambient backlight in order to display on-screen images.
Right now it is unclear how these new Samsung displays will enter our lives and more importantly when but this will inevitably happen in the near future.
