LG has certainly been making waves in the news recently, and their Social Tree installation in Singapore’s Changi Airport is a prime example in bringing technology to the masses in a different and modern way. Well, it seems that they are on the verge of yet another big thing in the industry with word that the South Korean consumer electronics giant is about to mass produce flexible displays for the smartphone industry sometime in the final quarter of this year at best, or perhaps in the first half of 2014.
According to the folks over at Korea Times who did have a chat with a bunch of LG Display executives, they managed to share this with Korea Times, “LG Display has completed the development of our first flexible displays. We’ve already shipped samples to clients including LG Electronics. LG Display will mass produce flexible displays from the fourth quarter of this year,” It remains to be seen, however, whether LG will be able to hold a big share in this potentially lucrative market as their bitter rival, Samsung, is also said to ship flexible displays of their own this year as well.
