Foldable and flexible display concepts are good but not sure how this can fit in the Mobile Phone space or even tablets. Holding them will be difficult, you may easily lose the device if it is too light or too fragile. The next wave of interface will have to be voice driven but that is slightly intruding and not really secure while using in common places. Next wave technologies going to face big challenge in terms of good use cases.
anonymous, 06 Oct 2016now this is innovation > this is what we needNot need but want
wow that pic of rollable TV seems pretty neat :)
my concern is the adaptation of the foldable display, sure there can be fun games and such but the concept itself it's harder to handle that what we have now and even where it's more practical for some stuffs i'm betting it'll be more expensive that todays flagships (which are quite expensive tbh) all the above is at least for the mobile division, TV-wise it can be really amazing ^_^
Samsung had already release a flat transparent OLED display panels. But it is use only for displaying ads billboard and can be put in a fitting room to virtually 'wear' any clothing without even putting them on. But, Samsung had already stop producing these panels as there were not many demands and they were only focusing on the small shopping market. But, if this patent is true, LG will take on transparent and foldable display to another degree and finally made them useful. There is a lot of potential to this and I hope this patent isn't wasted.

Yeah that's right we need innovation not a useless expensive devices
Let there be some innovation on Battery technology. It's sad I can't play Shadow Fight 2 and other demanding games on my phone continuously for 10-20 hours a day without having to charge the phone 5-6 times a day. I wish I can have a mobile that I can charge one time a year so I can save some electricity bill and also be hopeful that my battery won't die.

Sammy and lg working hard to innovate
Something real revolutionary
Apple all the while - files for a patent icopy i.e. whatever others do we will just copy it
Patents mean nothing. I work for a company that patents a lot of crazy things that they aren't going to implement.
