LG has unveiled new flexible OLED displays that are now capable of bending even further than existing displays with a wealth of new applications for smartphones and tablets.

The new LG OLED flexible displays are made entirely from plastic with no glass to break, offering safety while they are being flexed. Still, they offer the same brightness, energy efficiency and colour reproduction that you would expect with a glass display on a smartphone or tablet of today.

The OLED Display website explains a little more about the new design :

"The OLED lighting modules (F6BA40, F6BA30) are thin glass based and can only provide a limited bending of 75 mm. The new completely flexible plastic based panels increased the bending radios flexibility to 30mm which also eliminates the danger of the panel shattering when excessive force is applied."

LG is presently in the process of providing engineering samples to partners ready to take their new OLED flexible displays into production.

Although no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet LG, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
