Report: Apple iWatch to undergo mass production in 2H 2014 with flexible AMOLED display
It has been suggested in various reports that a flexible screen would help the iWatch fit better on the wrist. And TPK has been a supplier of panels to Apple in the past. But as with any report of this nature that reveals information without any semblance of evidence, we suggest that you remain skeptical and take the report with a grain of salt.
While Apple CEO Tim Cook has hinted about some new products for 2014, among which undoubtedly will be the Apple iWatch, the Cupertino based tech titan has its veil of secrecy, for which it is well known, in effect. Of course you never know when someone testing the device just might stumble out of a bar, leaving a prototype on the floor.
One important note for Apple. The longer it takes for the iWatch to actually launch, the higher the expectations are from a public that already is expecting a category-buster from the tech giant.

Samsung has a ton of patents on AMOLED screens. They have using them since the first Galaxy S.

Yet, it would probably be invalidated, all the while, Apple runs victory laps in court over whether or not a phone has rounded corners or something dumb like pinch to zoom lol.

Samsung and LG are the only companies who have flexible display technology, Samsung still hasn't come out with any products under the Youm brand.
I really don't think Samsung will let Apple use the flexible tech before they do.
