LG (066570) was the first to bring OLED and 4K resolution televisions to market and now it is planning another milestone with flexible display technology. According to the Korea Times, LG plans to ship its first batch of flexible displays later this year. South Korean rival Samsung (005930) showcased its “Youm” flexible displays at the Consumer Electronic Show this past January, however the company doesn’t expect it to be available in consumer devices for several years. LG is making a big push into mobile, recently finding success with its new Optimus G Pro smartphone, and a flexible display could be the next big thing to get the public’s attention.
