Ever since Samsung unveiled its flexible displays at this year’s CES; only rumors have followed since then, regarding it smartphones featuring such unbreakable displays. On the other hand, LG has comparatively shown serious attitude towards outing revolutionary display technology, as its vice president of mobile Yoon Bu-hyun previously hinted in a report.
Now, a new report from The Korea Times reveals that there will soon be a new kind of smartphone screen from LG, and it may be described simply with one word: unbreakable. And that’s not all; not only LG is going to feature such kind of display on its own smartphone devices but will deliver the next-gen smartphones screens to other clients as well.
Here’s what LG spokesperson Frank Lee said:-
LG Display will produce an ‘unbreakable OLED display’, the first phase of flexible displays, at our AP2 line of the 4.5th-generation plant in Paju, Gyeonggi Province. The move is aimed at taking a lead over rivals in the race for next-generation displays.
Here, Lee is no doubt referring it rivals as those who’re in the race for releasing such kind of display technology as well, most noticeably Samsung, which is reportedly showing sluggish performance so far. However, despite LG’s commitment to release unbreakable OLED displays this year, it’s speculated that LG might encounter a bottleneck in producing OLED displays as it already has many clients like Apple, Dell etc. and LG’s trying its best to manage supply needs, as it doesn’t want to end up in a situation where it can’t provide OLED displays for its own products.
With all that said, we’ll most probably be seeing new stuff from LG this year. Let’s see if LG manages to commercialize first ever flexible/unbreakable displays before Samsung. Are you looking forward towards these next-gen smartphone displays?
