The Korean manufacturer described the display as "the world's first flexible OLED panel for smartphones," but denied rumors of a phone sporting the new display launching as early as next month.
LG Display's Chief Technology Officer Yeo Sang-Deog said LG plans to release "new products with enhanced performance and differentiated designs next year." Samsung has already confirmed a curved smartphone, slated for October.
LG's six-inch display will be curved lengthwise, top to bottom, unlike a recent Samsung prototype which was concave side-to-side, with each long side curved back.
Though LG did not specify a resolution for the new screen, the company said the OLED display panel will have a 700mm radius of curvature -- more than twice the curve of Samsung's Galaxy Nexus.
