The Society for Information Display’s annual show is taking place this week in Vancouver, Canada and LG something special to unveil. For the first time in public, they will show off a 5-inch unbreakable and flexible OLED panel for mobile devices. The flexible part is cool, but the unbreakable part might actually be more meaningful right now. Replacing panels on phones and tablets can be pretty costly.
We have been hearing about similar products from Samsung as well, but LG is expected to trump Samsung by bringing this new technology to market quicker. Many people were hoping that the Galaxy Note III would sport something flexible, but Samsung just isn’t in a position to make that happen yet. Depending on the jumpstart, LG could put a dent into Samsung’s mobile market share.
