LG will announce a smartphone with flexible display before year's end

Sooner or later, a phone with flexible screen will launch on the market – that is pretty much imminent. After all, we have two of the biggest players on the market – Samsung and LG, working on that as we write these very lines. Which one of them will introduce such a device first, however, is something we cannot give a definite answer yet, although it seems like the latter will be ready with its offering before 2013 is out...

This is not Samsung's innovation.

Flexible display not really interested. I can't imagine a phone which I take out of my pocket and its in deformed shape.

And if you think that Samsung was the first to introduce flexible displays then LG and Samsung both should be sued by Nokia for using Super-Sensitive touch screens.

Samsung copied the technology from LG.
Don't get mixed up.

Obviously I'm happy with any sort of tech innovation. Is there any bad ones? But at the same time, I'm not certain I see the huge appeal of flexible displays... I'm sure when they come out I may be proven foolish, but right now I just can't get that excited about it! It's obviously amazing technology, I just don't know what you'd do with it.

they always try to compete against samsung, but they fail every time.

all manufacturers compete each other, not only with samsung.

LG - Loser Guy can't compete with Samsung, even though LG spied, stole and copied from Samsung technology. LG is still a loser in smartphone business in features and firmwares.

If LG makes a exact copy of the SGS4 but with a Flexible (shatterproof) screen, they can take my money

It will be interesting to see the number of uses this flexible display can be applied to.

LG are definitely the dark horse, rising profits and improved user experience with an anticipated G2 Launch, if the note 3 fails to wow us and if it's just a bigger S4 with pretty much the same thing as last year's model, it'll really give LG and Sony a chance to shine and become the next big players. Hate on LG all you want, but remember just 3 years ago before the launch of the GS1, Samsung, already one of the largest handset OEMS of the time, went from being the LG of their time to compete against a dominant HTC to become the current king of Android and the number 1 threat to Google and Apple.
