According to a report from Korean language news site DDaily, Samsung (005930KS) will begin producing flexible AMOLED displays this quarter. The panels are said to be less than half as thick as current-generation panels, measuring just 0.6 millimeters compared to 1.8 millimeters. The publication notes, however, that the initial displays will be protected by inflexible glass rather than a flexible plastic layer needed for use in a flexible device. Samsung is reportedly planning to release a device with an ultra-thin flexible AMOLED display by the end of the year, and is looking to begin mass production of truly flexible displays by 2014.
