Reports from CCS Insight indicate that smartphone brands are gearing up to introduce a groundbreaking feature: self-repairing displays that can address scratches. Expected to hit the market by 2028, these displays boast a cutting edge nano coating system capable of utilizing air and vapor in the atmosphere to create a new material, effectively eliminating unsightly scratches. Interestingly, the concept of self-healing displays isn’t entirely new. Back in 2013, LG unveiled the Flex, a curved smartphone display based on a similar principle, although no further updates or information were provided at the time.
Today, prominent companies like Motorola and Apple are actively pursuing advancements in self-healing display technology. Through the use of memory polymer, scratches on the screen can be repaired with a bit of warmth, showcasing the potential of this innovative solution. However, initial implementations of this technology may be reserved for high-end, expensive phones due to manufacturing costs. Stay tuned for this exciting evolution in smartphone technology.”
