Flexible Display Hits Europe
LG is manufacturing flexible EPD displays
The South Korean electronics giant LG announced that its new Flexible displays will hit Europe this month. It had started mass production of a flexible, plastic electronic paper display (EPD) on March 29. The much anticipated 6" display is 0.7mm thick and has a resolution of 1024 x 768. It will first be supplied to ODM manufacturers in China before being made available to the European market this month.
Head of operations for LG Display's Mobile/OLED division, Sang Duck Yeo, said: "Based on our success in mass-producing plastic EPD, we are excited as we look toward applying concepts from this experience to future developments like plastic OLED and flexible displays."
It weighs 14g, the display can bend at a range of 40 degrees from the centre of the screen and is said mark a dramatic leap in durability when compared to existing EPDs.
It is manufactured using the high TFT process, employed in LCD manufacturing, which has enabled LG to embark on cost effective mass-production of the display.
