LG to begin mass-producing flexible displays in Q4 2013, bring always-on voice command phone in 2014
LG Display has reaffirmed that the company will begin mass-producing flexible displays in the Q4, 2013. Additionally, the company plans to introduce always-on voice command powered phones in 2014.
LG will commence production of ultra high-definition flexible OLED displays in Q4 2013, as the company declares completion of development of their new technology.
“We have completed the development of our first flexible displays. We will mass produce flexible displays from the fourth quarter of this year,” LG said.
Of course, LG will be using their newly developed displays in their upcoming phones, and we fully expect a flexible display bearing Smartphone sometime in the 1H of 2014. But then again, both Samsung and Nokia are working on something similar, and will most likely unveil their products around the same time frame.
“We will apply a 4.5th generation glass-cutting technology for the OLED flexible displays. Monthly capacity for the line was set as 12,000 sheets,” the company explained.
Additionally, the company also states that they will bring always-on voice command powered phones in 2014. Of course, this feature is something that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S800 SoC boasts of, so it’s really a no-brainer that such phones will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest (and truly greatest, as benchmarks released earlier today revealed).
