Between some expected announcements, Intel found time to share a surprise at its Innovation 2022 conference. After JS Choi, CEO of Samsung Display, joined him on stage, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger showed a concept for a “sliding” PC with a slide-out OLED screen. By pulling the edge of the prototype, Gelsinger turned its 13-inch display into a 17-inch display. In other words, the prototype had gone from the size of a large tablet like the iPad Pro to a small monitor.
“We’re announcing the world’s first 17-inch sliding display for PCs,” Choi told the audience. “This device also meets various needs for a larger screen and mobility.” Samsung Display has been working on sliding OLED displays for a number of years. The company showed a prototype last year. Gelsinger called the concept PC a demonstration of what’s possible with OLED display technology and a flexible plastic substrate. However, don’t expect the device he was demoing to launch anytime soon, if ever.
