You may have Self-Healing Screen Smartphones Soon

The manufacture of mobile phone will undergo major changes in coming years. The smartphone as we know it today will not look like much as we have today in future, you might be thinking of transparent display smartphones etc. That’s right, it is a huge possibility.

The arrival of flexible screens is just a matter of time. Many manufacturers have been working for years on the development of this technology. In Fact, we already know that the screens of the phones of the future will be transparent silver leaving behind typical glass screens. This will allow manufacturing devices with more resistant screens.In this sense, Samsung is one of the companies that has advanced the most in the development of flexible screens. The Korean firm has very ambitious plans for the coming years and in 2019 could start selling these panels to other manufacturers in the sector.

Recently a group of researchers at the University of California discovered a material that heals itself and this technology will revolutionize the screens of all types of devices, the material is able to heal itself from simple cuts and scratches. In addition, this material can conduct electricity so it would be ideal for use in electronic devices such as smartphones.

A self-healing material

This material has been created from an ionic salt and plastic polymers that are capable of stretching up to 50 times its original size. The process that is responsible for the regeneration of the same is driven by an intermolecular force called the Ion-Dipole interaction.

The tests carried out by scientists have been a success. In less than 24 hours from the time of receiving the cut or scratch, the material was able to repair itself. Molecules attracted each other and reattached, eliminating any signs of damage.

The use of self-healing materials is not new in the world of mobile telephony. In fact, LG was the first to experiment with them. It did it in the manufacture of LG G Flex, which possessed a material able to repair itself when it suffered small scratches. The big difference is that this material was used for the back, not on the screen.

This material could be an authentic revolution when it comes to making devices such as mobile phones, tablets or portable consoles. We would no longer have to worry about taking our phone to the service when our screen received a scratch, we would have to wait until the next day to have our screen as new.

In addition, the discovery of this new material seems not to be forgotten, as sometimes happens in these cases. The scientists say that in 2020 we will see the first devices with screens built with this material. Now it must be up to the manufacturers who decide to use it in their products.

So, what do you think about self-healing screen smartphones? Will we have smartphones with self-healing screens in 2020?
