There is some new intel that Samsung and LG have finally overcome the technical hurdles with their flexible OLED display technology. According to the report, both companies will be mass producing flexible displays and they will be showing up in devices as early as November of this year. The first generation of flexible displays will only be able to bend in a single plane rather than multiples, but this is still a big start. The primary advantages of the flexible tech is that displays will be lighter, thinner, unbreakable, and will consume less power.
Those seem like fantastic reasons to bring the technology to market. Right now, Samsung has the capacity to make 1.5 Million 5-6-inch flexible displays per month, although the yields will be less than that since that is only their 100% capacity. The amount that LG will be able to produce was not disclosed although it will be less than that initially.
This technology has been teased for the last two years. It will be pretty exciting to see it finally come to light. Who is looking forward to seeing what they can do with it?
