LG plans to release bendable phone in 2015

This time, bendable phones are not the butt of a joke; LG shared its roadmap for the future and plans to roll out bendable smartphones in 2015.

The key component to make its vision a reality is Plastic OLED display technology, which uses plastic substrate for the display rather than glass. As Plastic OLED is film-based, it is more flexible and does not break as easily as glass. This Plastic OLED technology can already be found on the curved LG G Flex and the LG G Watch R.

LG aims to utilise Plastic OLED displays on smartphones in 2015 and will extend this technology to use in tablets sometime in 2015 or 2016. The company’s roadmap suggests that foldable notebooks, rollable tablets and TVs and curved navigation systems for cars will be launched in 2017.

The Korean company is certainly backing this bendable tech, but it remains yet to be seen if consumers will feel the same way. However, we’re sure that many would prefer phones that bend only if they are designed to. And the novelty of devices that we can just roll up may be difficult to resist.
