Electronics giant LG is set to begin production on flexible OLED displays layer this year, with a company spokesman saying it'll be in the fourth quarter. Around 12,000 sheets are expected each month, although there's no telling just how many displays that can be used for. Odds are most of the applications for the screens will be for smartphones, as the screen size is thought to be in the four to five inch range. LG Electronics plans to sell a smartphone with a flexible display later this year, while LG Display (separate from LG Electronics) plans to sell the flexible screens to other companies. Before you go thinking that flexible screens mean flexible smartphones, the other materials associated have to be flexible, too. However, it could mean smartphones with curved displays, or even other curved devices with a screen, like watches, are a possibility, as is the possibility for flexible screens to be unbreakable.
