The origins of flexible displays can be traced back to the ’70s. Though there have been many breakthroughs since then, it was only recently that this technology began to see consumer adoption for mass production.
Currently, 90% of displays sold today are made with glass. These designs are based on liquid crystal displays (LCD). Flexible displays are often based on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is fundamentally different than LCD.
So, how does this technology flex and fold? Below, we explore how to create flexible displays using OLED over LCD.
