LG says bendable display production for the G Flex is in full gear
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 apparently churn out enough sheets to cut several hundred thousand mobile displays a month, so the G Flex might indeed see a global rollout as rumored, unlike the boutique Samsung Galaxy Round.

The Koreans also confirmed that they are looking at new display products with the technology next year, but whether and how these will go into actual devices, remains to be seen. So far, LG is taking the wait and see approach, and will react more when it gauges the overall demand for such flexible displays

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.

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!

This just might be a force to be reckoned with.
