Inside LG's 6" flexible display: largest phone OLED panel will bring feathery devices
0. phoneArena 07 Oct 2013, 06:27 posted on
One of the big advantages of moving to flexible plastic substrates is not the flexible form factor, but rather that the displays can be made physically thinner and lighter. LG's 6" screen package is just 0.44mm thin - that's the thinnest mobile phone screen out there. Not only that, but since it is built with plastic instead of glass, it is also incredibly light at only 7.2g for the whole thing, a world record for a mobile display. We also have to bear in mind that what we are talking about here is also the largest phone OLED screen produced, with the closest being the 5.7" screen on the Note 3...

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.

LG and Samsung didnt mention anything about scratch resistance??
they are less prone to braking and how about scratching??

How about Stereo speakers integrated in these types of displays?

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.
