LG to unveil curved OLED handsets this month
Some confirmed reports suggest that both local tech giants, LG and Samsung, will each be unveiling flexible display devices in October.
As we mentioned previously, Samsung has officially confirmed a curved display smartphones, which is reported to be a Galaxy Note 3 Active model, which could be revealed as soon as next week. Meanwhile LG is taking it a step further with their new LG Z series (Z as in Z-axis), which features a concave display, likely of fullHD one. The Z series flagship is allegedly already in production, and is said to be launched this month.
While both of these devices will feature non-straight, unique angle displays, they are not flexible literally, as internal components like circuit boards and batteries cannot be made flexible, yet. Current flexible OLED technology will allow displays which require less screen bezel, and will be unbreakable - hence the Active moniker attached to Samsung's upcoming device.
Both of these handset are expected to be released in limited quantities as neither manufacturer has the capabilities to mass produce flexible displays yet.
