New Delhi, India, October 9, 2013: LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, has announced that it will start mass-production of flexible OLED panel for smartphones.

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’s flexible OLED panel is built on plastic substrates instead of glass. By applying film-type encapsulation technology and attaching the protection film to the back of the panel, LG Display made the panel bendable and unbreakable. The new display is vertically concave from top to bottom with a radius of 700mm, and 0.44mm thin, LG Display’s flexible OLED panel is a slim mobile device panels. It is also light, weighing a mere 7.2g even with a 6-inch screen.

In March 2012 LG Display developed the 6-inch Electronic Paper Display (EPD) based on e-ink which utilizes a plastic backplane.

According to research firm IHS Display Bank, the global flexible display industry will see dramatic growth and become a USD 1.5 billion market by 2016, exceeding USD 10 billion by 2019. LG Display plans to advance flexible display technologies and bring innovation to consumers’ daily lives with the introduction of rollable and foldable displays in various sizes.
