At the ongoing Samsung Analyst Day in Korea, Samsung Electronics is revealing their strategy as well as forecasts for all its businesses. Samsung Vice Chairman and CEO, Oh-Hyun Kwon also addressed the analysts and revealed their strategy for building a “smarter life” with Samsung components.

While this particular slide shows components from all Samsung hardware divisions, one that attracted our attention is the last one – Display. Samsung announced the Galaxy Round with the curved display few weeks back and if all goes as planned, Samsung will reveal bendable displays sometime in 2014.

The Foldable ones will be followed soon after and if the timeline is any indication we can expect the technology to come to fruition in late 2015 to early 2016.
