LG says bendable display production for the G Flex is in full gear
0. phoneArena 23 Oct 2013, 09:27 posted on
LG has updated on its flexible OLED display production that will be making the 6" ultralight and thin panel for the G Flex. It turns out that LG Display is gearing up for some serious production capacity of OLED displays with plastic substrate that can bend and twist. It can churn out enough sheets to cut several hundred thousand mobile displays a month, apparently so the G Flex might indeed see a global rollout as rumored, unlike the boutique Samsung Galaxy Round...

He isn't talking about flexible phone ! Flexible displays are light, thinner and won't break if phone slips through your hands.
Plus it all depends on how OEMs chose to implement the tech. They could make the display stretch to go out on sides which can show text messages or notification in a sentence when the phone is laying on a table.

actually bendable batteries have already been invented. there are even batteries that appear as flexible wires. if we want a flexible phone, we just have to make the rest of the components capable of bending or positioned to allow bending.
however, it just does not make sense.
i really believe what we need is not bendable displays.
what we need are FOLDABLE displays so we can keep our devices compact with the option of folding the display into a bigger one when needed.

Foldable displays were invented about 20 years ago. It's called a clamshell form factor.

Bendable phones are not happening anytime soon. 10 years at least.

we have bendable batteries its the chips on the motherboard to work on but you can put that at the top or bottom that will work more bends mean more power.

Invent? Apple doesn't invent anything. He will be happy when Apple buys it from LG.

sony, htc, lenovo, apple, etc ,, please don't ride on the bendable display bandwagon.
fund your R&D departments to come up with a foldable display. that would be way more useful!

none of them except sony is in display business.

sorry thats atleast 10 years away because of the screen fold and the liquid ribbon bending 180 flexible is what we have for the next 10 to 15 years

This just might be a force to be reckoned with.
