Samsung is slowing down progression for flexible Amoled panel displays following the continued success of regular displays.

The Korean company previously pegged screens under its flexible YOUM brand would show up by Q3 2012. However, the mass production schedule encountered problems.

The company now sees this new type of screen coming to life in 2013 with the first devices coming in a year after that.

The new displays will be thinner than the current ones (0.6 mm), they will use Amoled technology with RGB model and promise to show off a better resolution. For this type of screen is used plastic instead of glass, which will bring in improvements such as high flexibility and reduced cost of production.

The new flexible models will open the door for more unusual form-factors. However, this will not necessarily include smartphones and tablets that fold in half. Instead, Samsung is believed to be experimenting with designs where the display continues around the edge of the device, such as adding a status screen to the top panel of a phone that could be glanced at without removing the handset from a pocket or bag.
