LG Debuts Flexible OLED Display for Smartphones

Posted by at 8:26 am on October 7, 2013

LG Display today claimed to be the first to mass produce a flexible OLED panel for smartphones. According to LG, its new screen technology is made from plastic substrates and not glass. The protection layer is applied to the back of the panel and LG says this helps make it bendable and unbreakable. The display is 0.44mm thick, and LG believes it will help spur more innovative designs for smartphones and wearables.

“LG Display is launching a new era of flexible displays for smartphones with its industry-leading technology,” said Dr. Sang Deog Yeo, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of LG Display. “The flexible display market is expected to grow quickly as this technology is expected to expand further into diverse applications including automotive displays, tablets and wearable devices. Our goal is to take an early lead in the flexible display market by introducing new products with enhanced performance and differentiated designs next year.”

The first screen developed by LG has a 6-inch diagonal, weighs 7.2g, and is concave from top to bottom. LG plans to introduce this flexible OLED display in a new smartphone as soon as next month, though it says volume production of curved panels and products incorporating them won’t arrive until 2014.
