Samsung has been hinting in this direction for a number of years, and some believe the tech will debut in the world of smartphones first, then should migrate comfortably onto Ultra-HD OLED panels for laptops.

The platforming is intentionally terrible, going along with developer Tommy Refenes' belief that iOS controls of the time fucking sucked.
