Korean company LG is going to launch a new plastic display in Europe this month that is flexible, light and thin. The Electronic Paper Display (EPD) has a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 and has a number of advantages over its glass competitors.

The 6-inch display can bend up to 40 degrees and is highly durable. At 0.7 mm thick, it is roughly a third thinner than glass EPD devices like the Kindle and it is also less than half the weight, at just 14 grams. LG’s flexible EPD could also be used for advertising, in-store displays, and other areas where a normal screen isn’t practical. Sang Duck Yeo, head of operations for LG Display’s Mobile/OLED division, said:

With the world’s first plastic EPD, LG Display has once again proven its reputation for leadership and innovation with a product we believe will help greatly popularize the E-Book market. Based on our success in mass-producing plastic EPD, we are excited as we look toward applying concepts from this experience to future developments like plastic OLED and flexible displays.
