Samsung to Focus on Flexible Screens for Mobile Gadgets

Samsung Display will build production lines dedicated to making flexible screens for wearable devices and smartphones, it said on Friday.

Construction will begin in the second quarter of this year so the lines can start operating from the first half of next year.

Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics is reviewing whether to launch a large smartphone model using its affiliate's curved screens. If produced, the model could plug the gap between regular smartphones and tablet PCs in terms of size, the company said.
