A team at Oxford University has discovered a new type of display technology that consists of a simple thin film of phase-change material (PCM) between two thin films of transparent electrodes. The three layers can be applied to very thin, flexible Mylar sheets, creating a flexible display. The material only requires power to change state, so it holds an image without power, making it extremely power-efficient. The technique can currently create individual pixels as small as 300 x 300 nanometers, resulting in displays much sharper than today's. The team has also found a way to produce different colors by altering the size of the bottom electrode. Although the work is still in its early stages, the team has filed a patent and is working to commercialize the technology through Isis Innovation, Oxford University's technology commercialization company.

iphone 7 screen

this is it Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
No offense iFan,
but you do realize that Apple is still using LCD displays right now?
They're not exactly on the cutting edge of technology. And why does just the iPhone need this display?
Can't we all get phones we like with nice displays?
iPhone users will be doing good if the finally get an HD screen... lol Laughing
