LG Display is always pushing further the limits of display technology. LG has designed the first EPD (electronic paper display) for the e-book market and this time it is flexible and can bend at an angle up to 40 degrees.
LG Display has a malleable plastic body sporting a 6-inch XGA e-ink flexible screen which is 0.7 mm thick and has a resolution of 1024 x 768. Further, it can uniquely bend at an angle of up to 40 degrees to the center and further the device would weigh around 14grams.
LG also claims that the display is super durable, as evidenced by a series of successful drop tests from a height of 1.5 meters. The plan going forward is to supply the display to ODMs in China, in the hopes of bringing final products to Europe by “the beginning of next month.”
