LG announces the start of mass production of flexible displays for this year

LG announces the start of mass production of flexible displays for this year

A spokesman for the company said it will start mass in the fourth quarter at a facility in Paju, South Korea. It is expected that 12,000 “slices” are produced each month, although it is unclear how many you can create with each. The first screens will be used in consumer products are likely in the range of 4 to 5 inches.

The Korea Times claims that Electronics, which is a separate entity from LG Display, Flexible plans to launch a this year. LG Display expects to sell flexible displays other device manufacturers, too.

While flexible displays seem to be the future, it seems unlikely that we will see smartphones flexible in the short term as circuit board, battery, and everything else, would have to be equally flexible. The screen itself is not yet flexible enough to be completely rolled or folded. However, they have the flexibility to be placed on curved surfaces.

While this type of implementation seems to have a minimum income for smartphones, would be ideal for other portable devices such as iWatch, long-rumored.

Also, the material that enables flexible display can be folded, purportedly made unbreakable. A smartphone with a screen unbreakable certainly interesting.
