The first two “flexible” display devices on the market were really just to show off new technology— they have been more marketing-based than actually usable and interesting.
However, this doesn’t mean that the future of curved displays will be dull as well.
According to new rumors, LG’s G Flex 2 may have a display that can bend up to a full 90 degrees. This means that device will be nearly indestructible (from normal use), and it could be the first fully functional touch-screen clamshell device. If the display is possible, we’re sure manufacturers will be able to build a nice form factor around it to make it all come together.
The device will hit the market at some point in 2014, and you can bet LG will aim to have it hit stores before Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Round is released.
