According to information from the South Korean portal The Elec, Samsung plans to use transparent polyimide (PI) films in future foldable OLED screens for tablets and notebooks

While the UTG employed in recent Galaxy Z folding models offers better visibility and flexibility, the technology still has similar characteristics to “regular” glass

Due to the size of the screen on a supposed foldable tablet, there is concern about the durability of the material

It is worth mentioning that currently foldable smartphones have panels from 7 to 8 inches, while future tablets and foldable notebooks may have screens between 10 and 20 inches

Finally, The Elec mentions that the market for tablets and foldable notebooks is still very small. Less than 100,000 units of devices with these characteristics are sold annually.
