LG is still on pace to be the first manufacturer to mass produce flexible and unbreakable displays for mobile devices. The company confirmed in a statement to the Korea Times that it has completed development of its flexible displays and is scheduled to begin mass production in the fourth quarter. LG is looking to get a jump on the competition and plans to release a smartphone with a flexible screen later this year. Samsung is also developing unbreakable and bendable displays, however the company’s first consumer devices that utilize them aren’t expected to arrive until the second half of 2014. LG estimates that it will produce 12,000 sheets of OLED flexible displays per month when production begins later this year.
