Inside LG's 6" flexible display: largest phone OLED panel will bring feathery devices
LG Display Mass-Produce World’s First Flexible OLED Panel for Smartphones
LG Display brings innovation to the smartphone market with cutting-edge panel
LG Display’s flexible OLED panel is built on plastic substrates instead of glass. By applying film-type encapsulation technology and attaching the protection film to the back of the panel, LG Display made the panel bendable and unbreakable. The new display is vertically concave from top to bottom with a radius of 700mm, opening up a world of design innovations in the smartphone market. And only 0.44mm thin, LG Display’s flexible OLED panel is the world’s slimmest among existing mobile device panels. What’s more, it is also the world’s lightest, weighing a mere 7.2g even with a 6-inch screen, the largest among current smartphone OLED displays.
In March 2012 LG Display developed the world’s first 6-inch Electronic Paper Display (EPD) based on e-ink which utilizes a plastic backplane. Having previously showcased the world’s first curved 55-inch OLED TV panel at CES 2013, today’s announcement highlights the company’s leading position in advanced flexible display technologies.
According to research firm IHS Display Bank, the global flexible display industry will see dramatic growth and become a USD 1.5 billion market by 2016, exceeding USD 10 billion by 2019. LG Display plans to advance flexible display technologies and bring innovation to consumers’ daily lives with the introduction of rollable and foldable displays in various sizes.

Another LG shill in phonearena.
Phonearena has become a marketing ground for LG.
They say LG has the 'record' for largest OLED screen, but they forget to mention that LG's solution is more than 3x thicker and weighs more.
As usual LG marketing in PA is obvious.

"displays can be made physically thinner"
So this is the main reason behind flexible displays, now we will be able to see much thinner phones in recent future.

Phones can already be made so thin that they're uncomfortable to hold. Thinner displays can play a much more important role -- namely, finally allow room for batteries large enough to ensure a full day's worth of charge is the bare minimum.

Yes, you're right and also it'll allow other upcoming hardware technologies to reside inside and also makes the phone lighter.

with all these new technologies, we are still using lithium-ion batteries, which was used on cellphones 10 years ago. someone that comes up with a better technology batteries that can last a week will rack major cash in this line of business.

It is hard to come up with new battery technology. And even if somebody does and few people already did (illinois university, the girl who won LG contest), their ideas are swept under the carpet. Where are those technology? They are a big threat for oil companies. Phone that could last a week on one charge is just too much, imagine that power used in cars. Some ragheads could really lose a lot of money if strong batteries were to be implemented into cars. So that's the reason too and they know and we know it too.
