LG working on 'unbreakable' display as part of new OLED-based focus
That’s right, the Korea-based company is looking to deliver its own flavor of unbreakable display to the world soon as part of its plan to dive into the still burgeoning OLED market for phones. If you think that sounds awesome, that’s because it is. Each day, the world gets closer and closer to finally seeing these things for the very first time.
In the Korea Times report, LG spokesman Frank Lee was quoted as saying that LG’s decision to start working on its own unbreakable screens “was aimed at taking a lead over rivals in the race for next-generation displays.” Here, Lee is no doubt referring to other outfits on the quest to create the first unbreakable and bendable or flexible screens, most notably Samsung, which has already shown some steady, albeit slow, progress.
So how is LG’s own work coming along so far? LG’s plan apparently involves using RGB-based OLED display tech in order to fulfill display orders from its numerous clients which include Apple, Dell, Google, and HP. Interestingly, it looks like LG is kind of in a bind, with regard to how it will start collecting potential new OLED display clients. It is said that despite its resources, it may still encounter bottlenecks in production, and it doesn’t want to have to deal with a situation wherein it can’t provide OLED displays for its own products.
