|LG Flexible Display|
We all know that the two Korean Giants - Samsung and LG already showcased their flexible display earlier this year, but it seems that LG has the edge on the competition. According to Korean Times, LG Display will start to mass-produce their flexible display within the fourth quarter of this year while the LG Electronics is also planning to release a flexible smartphone before the year ends.
LG will be making an OLED flexible display which supports ultra high definition (UHD) with their 4.5th generation glass-cutting technology and forecast it will have a capacity of 12, 000 sheets per month. LG officials also hinted that they will sell their flexible display to other manufacturer since they believed that it will be the future trend not only on smartphone but also with TV's and the likes.
In the meantime LG's competitor, Samsung Display is said to be still in the testing phase of the similar product. LG Display is currently involved in a legal battle with Samsung Display on the alleged involvement of Samsung to steal on LG's OLED patent.
