LG Starts Mass-Production of Curved Display Smartphones for November Launch

Samsung has already announced to launch its curved display smartphones this month. Now its rival LG announces to launch its own curved display smartphones of 6-inch. LG Electronics' Display unit has announced today to start the mass-production of the world’s first flexible OLED panel for smartphone.

Dr. Sang Deog Yeo, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of LG Display, said, “LG Display is launching a new era of flexible displays for smartphones with its industry-leading technology. The flexible display market is expected to grow quickly as this technology is expected to expand further into diverse applications including automotive displays, tablets and wearable devices. Our goal is to take an early lead in the flexible display market by introducing new products with enhanced performance and differentiated designs next year.”

LG Display also claims that 6-inch curved display is the world’s slimmest and lightest and largest among current smartphone OLED displays. This flexible OLED panel is made up of plastic substrates which use a film-type encapsulation technology and a protection film to the back of the panel that makes it curved yet unbreakable. 

This curved display radius is 700mm from top to bottom. This vertically concave panel is just 0.44mm thick that makes it the world’s slimmest among current panels. Its weight is also just 7.2g that makes it world’s lightest.

LG has already launched the world’s first curved 55-inch OLED TV panel at CES 2013. Samsung's curved display TV is also in the market. The research firm IHS Display Bank predicts that the flexible display market will grow to reach USD 1.5 billion worldwide by 2016 and USD 10 billion by 2019. Hence a more room is there for new innovative technology of curved display devices especially in smartphone market.
