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.
LG is promising that it will announce a smartphone with a flexible screen in Q4 of this year. Word comes from Yoon Bu-hyun – vice president of mobile at LG, who said that his team was developing one in partnership with LG Display. The screen will be made using OLED technology, according to the report.In fact,
Note that while this LG smartphone will have a flexible display, the handset itself won't bend or anything like that. The rigid circuitry and battery inside it will surely make that impossible. Instead, chances are that we'll see a handset with screen that wraps around the edges – perhaps something that closely resembles one of these Samsung prototypes that were shown off earlier this year.
In the meantime, Samsung is planning on launching a phone with flexible OLED screen as well, but its launch might have been delayed.

This is not Samsung's innovation.

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.

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.

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.
