LG Display has confirmed that it will indeed start mass-manufacturing flexible displays in the fourth quarter of 2013. Thus, LG is likely to outpace Samsung and be the first one to deliver flexible displays to the market.

“We have completed the development of our first flexible displays. We will mass produce flexible displays from the fourth quarter of this year,” LG said.

LG will be making OLED displays supporting ultra-high definition (UHD). LG will manufacture the panels at its Paju factory in Korea.

“We will apply a 4.5th generation glass-cutting technology for the OLED flexible displays. Monthly capacity for the line was set as 12,000 sheets,” the company explained.

Not surprisingly, LG Electronics plans to take up the displays and be the first making a smartphone with the new flexible screen by the end of the year.

Flexible-screen smartphones however will not remain exclusive to LG as the company is planning to sell the screens to other phone makers. The new technology will break the conventional cycles in the industry, and LG confirmed it is also working on TVs with flexible UHD displays.
