LG wants their phones with Flexible OLEDs

samsung_flexible_oled_screen_phone_xluetOkay, every once in a while, I see some kind of new device that I think is going to change the world. I think LG has already seen it.

We have been living in a world where the smartphone has been just a touchscreen with very few buttons. We obviously have Apple to thank for that, but what is the next step? After all, it is very clear that those old flip phones from a decade ago look like dinosaurs versus the plain touchscreen smartphones of today.

So what will be the next step? How about some kind of small bar for notifications, and then a pullout screen for watching movies? Yeah, I really want that, and you know who else wants that? LG.

LG has planned on investing about $907 million for a new OLED plant in Korea. The plant should be up and running in about 2017, which can produce four times as many flexible OLED displays compared to what they can do now.

Seriously, those OLED touchscreens are the way of the future man. I think I might need to get me some idea of what this is going. Maybe I should invest in LG Electronics before the stock climbs after their flexible touchscreen phones come out.

LG set to produce some bendable and unbreakable smartphone displays

lgd-5-inch-plastic-oled1I have been hearing about bendable displays for years, and I always figured that the company who could produce them fast and cheap would reign supreme on the smartphone market.

It looks like LG could be the guy who reigns with the flexible OLED panel, as they claim to have that inside their own devices. It could happen as fast as next month with the G-Flex, but I figured that they would have to do this sometime before Christmas.

Something tells me that devices with flexible displays could be the “show-me-off” gadget at CES. I have heard that Samsung is planning a device of their own. Any thoughts, Motorola?
