Apple mulling three flexible display sizes for its iWatch, 1.5” prototype already in the lab
Apple is apparently testing flexible OLED displays in various sizes for its upcoming iWatch accessory, Korean media reports, which means that the maker of those screens is either Samsung, or, more likely, LG, given that both companies can make bendable OLEDs now.

Yields for this technology are rather low, however, which explains why we still haven't been able to see phones with flexible screens outside of few YOUM prototypes Samsung already showed back at CES.

According to the publication, right now Apple is mulling 1.3", 1.4" and 1.5" sizes, and "a prototype of the 1.5-inch has already been made," mentioned the sources. The iWatch is meant to be an accessory for your iOS gadgets that is developed in cooperation with fitness and health experts, so its functionality is expected to be much broader than simple content notifications and Siri voice control shenanigans.
