Bendable displays bring evolution to mobile devices. No glass will mean no more annoying reflections, glares, screen breaks and bendable tech will allow for phone geometry to finally break away from the same stupid generic look that has just been so god damn boring to look at for all these years. Every phone literally has looked exactly the same as the other one, and the next one, and the ..... other next one. Now all that needs to be done is a complete re-invention of all the lame operating systems that currently are coming with these phones. Bring it already, done right

Please read the entire Wikipedia article not just the computer generated pic. LoL

But as far as I am aware Samsung have also patented flexible screens which if i am correct could lead to some more court appearances from Samsung.

I think we are going backwards, bending phones for what? I wouldn't want such a phone it will make our hands more tired
I first heard this idea with nokia some years back and I didn't like it at all..

They just try to release everything first but don't sell well.Because they lack in other departments..Who knows Samsung may surprise everyone with note 3 and its flexible display before LG's announcement. Afterall they are not noisy like LG..LG should understand that they should wait for the right time and not bringing out to market just for the sake of being 'FIRST;..

Flexible screen does NOT necessarily mean a flexible phone.

It could mean the screen may be curved a certain way, or it could simply be like a normal phone, but the flexible screen simply increases its durability.

Flexible screen means they cau use curvature on the screen rather than the traditional flat screen, Wich allow designers to get advantage of a bigger screen size without making a bigger footprint of the device istself. Looging forward to see if LG will have it abailable to the public first, and not just another demo prototype like Nokia or Samsung so far has shown.
