Flexible displays due next year says LG

If you’re keeping close tabs on technological advancements, then chances are that you’ve already came across some hear-says about Flexible Displays and some of you are probably as skeptical as we are about the concept behind it. Well, as it turns out, such screens aren’t as far-fetched after all.

During a chat with Korea Times, one of the execs at LG Electronics display division claimed that the company is indeed working on an OLED-type Flexible display and that they’re planning to mass produce such screen on the latter part of this year.

“LG Display has completed the development of our first flexible displays. We’ve already shipped samples to clients including LG Electronics. LG Display will mass produce flexible displays from the fourth quarter of this year,”

However, do note though that this statement doesn’t mean that we’ll see smartphones, maybe even tablets, equipped with Flexible display this year. There’s a big possibility that such devices will make its debut on the first half of next year.

We’re not entirely sure what we’ll make out of this display technology and how will it stack against traditional, non-flexi display. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see how manufacturers are going to incorporate this rather bizarre contraption to their future devices.

      Imagine magkakaron ng phones – na pwedeng gawing tablet via bendable screens. at dahil mas flexible mas resilient na ito sa mga drops. :) maraming applications! imagination mo lang ang limit :D

      Imagine this, you have a Bluetooth device at the size of a ring, and this device houses a battery and the flexible screen folded in it (or wrapped to take the shape of a ring maybe), and then the common hardware found on a phone (processor, wifi, etc…) is on a separate casing (it might be on a watch like case, or a necklace, or a belt???) then these devices communicates with each other to form a good usable phone. Just imagine.

    I think they are not just for phones. Flexible screens can be used to display something in a poster-like form. If you have seen The Hunger Games, you’ll know what I mean. :)

    not really useless,

    im just imagining maybe it is nice if they come up with a device that is similar to ancient scroll where you pull out this flexible thing. flexible batt in future might be great…

    im just considering the technology itself only…

    Ive heard about developments towards this kind of tech way back in 2010.

    What i’m more interested in, however, is the development in non-light emitting displays (like color e-ink) that promises long battery life (say, 25hrs) and are completely harmless to the eyes.

    2001 pa to na-feature on good ole Tech TV. Bagal naman ng development.

  11. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
    you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both
    show the same outcome.

  12. To address this concern, various techniques of penis enlargement have
    been developed. As the penis patches are natural formulations and are made
    from natural ingredients, there are no major risks involved in using them but you should go through the ingredients just to know if you are allergic to any of them.
    Most jelqing techniques are preceded by a warm up preparation of wrapping the penis in a warm towel for about 5 minutes to relax
    the penis and allow more blood flow.
