Samsung is preparing to showcase a 5.5-inch flexible display for cellphones at next month’s CES. This isn’t the first time Samsung will show a bending display as it had earlier showcased a smaller version with lower resolution a couple of years back. At this CES, the display will measure 5.5-inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels giving it a pixel density of 267ppi.

While the display will be flexible, it isn’t rollable yet, according to CNET that quotes a Samsung Display representative. Samsung is rumored to launch a phone with an unbreakable display but it is not clear whether the technology is ready to be deployed commercially, yet. The company, which was spun off from Samsung Electronics earlier this year, is yet to figure out the glass that goes on top of the screen that completes a display.

Corning, the makers of popular Gorilla Glass, might have a solution for such flexible displays. The glass maker showed off its “Willow Glass” that is bendable yet retains all the characteristics of glass. Probably phones with unbreakable displays aren’t that far away after all.
