Both Samsung and LG will have products on the market with flexible screens end of this year

20 August, 2013 Samsung



According to Korean site ET News, bothSamsung Display and LG Display will ship flexible displays this coming November, and they are considering expanding production capacity thereafter. As the first product will be introduced as an `unbreakable and light' concept phone, the production capacity of the current pilot lines of the two companies will be enough. However, if the response is good, the production capacity is so insufficient that it cannot handle a single mega-class model.


Besides being flexible, why should you be interested in this new display technology? The screens themselves are not made out of glass, they're made out of a plastic substrate that's far more resistant to damage. You'll hear the term "unbreakable" get thrown around a lot, and while I think that's pushing it, you'll definitely be able to drop your flexi-phone to the ground and not have to worry about it getting a nasty hairline fracture.


In addition to Samsung Display and LG Display, Japanese and Taiwanese companies are developing flexible OLED, but they seem to have a long way to go until mass production.
