TechARP just posted a video of two reflective displays from Samsung, the 55" ML55E mirror display which has 55% reflectance and 90% transmittance and displays at 1920×1080 and a 32" model, the ML32E. These will be used in store displays for now, but soon you may be upgrading your bathroom mirror so you can catch the news while you shave, or your Netflix stream while you take a quick break.
They also showed off the 55" O55F transparent OLED display, again 1080×1920 which is 45% transparent and they claim is able to provide 100% Adobe RGB colour space with 98% DCI color support. As with the reflective displays you will first see these as store displays but it shouldn't be too long before we will be able to get our hands on them. You can also see the Samsung PR here, unfortunately it does not specify what material was used in the transparent display but one hopes it is sturdy enough not to have to be protected from scratches and bumps.
"At the recently-held Samsung Forum 2016, we came across these really cool transparent and mirror displays that Samsung will be bringing to the market shortly. Take a look!"
