LG flexible OLED smartphone display now enters mass production
LG's curved display production plans are now coming along as expected, as the company officially announces that its first flexible OLED panel for smartphones has entered mass production.
The company expects a rapid success of the flexible smartphone displays saying that other products are also going to benefit from the new technology. These candidates include wearable devices, tablets, and automotive displays.
The flexible OLED display in question is 0.44mm thin and this makes it the slimmest among existing mobile device panels, this is according to the manufacturer. Furthermore, the display itself is built using plastic substrates instead of glass. This makes it virtually unbreakable, and still remaining quite bendable.
We're yet to see the company announce any smartphones with said flexible OLED display. There are also rumors that Korean giants Samsung and LG will unveil curved OLED smartphones this October, but this has not been confirmed yet.
According to rumors, LG's device will debut the company's Z series and the company appears to be in a furious race with Samsung to unveil such a smartphone.
