LG Display announced today it will invest in a 6th Generation flexible OLED display production line as part of its efforts to lead the flexible OLED display market.
The new E5 Line line is scheduled to start mass production in the first half of 2017.
LG Display’s investment will help pioneer future display technologies such as foldable displays and large-size auto displays. The main advantage of a flexible OLED display is the screen’s bending feature achieved by using a plastic substrate instead of a glass one (as in a conventional OLED display). The use of the flexible OLED technology is now being expanded to smartphone, automotive and wearable device displays.
