It looks like LG is about to jump ahead of the competition with an impressive successor to its flexible OLED displays, which will have double the bending radius. Right now we have 2.95-inch (or 30mm), but the new displays will flex much more, right up to an insane 1.18-inch (or 75mm).

Not only will the new screens be much more flexible, but they'll be shatter-proof, too. This is thanks to LG adopting a "true flexible" plastic OLED display instead of using glass. Tech spec wise, this is what we can expect: 60lm/W efficiency, 75lm (807 nits) peak brightness output, 3000K in color temperature, and CRI over 85.

 

What devices will these new all-plastic flexible OLEDs be going into? We don't know just yet, but we could expect the G Flex 3, G4 and many other devices. Maybe a new wearable, too.
