The plastic screen is thin, durable, and can bend up to 40 degrees.

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.
