Flexible AMOLED (Active-matrix Organic Light-emitting Diode) displays have drawn market attention as Apple's next-generation iPhone is reportedly to feature a flexible AMOLED display. Flexible display technologies include flexible AMOLED, flexible LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), and flexible e-paper. Each flexible display technology has different limitations and thus the development of their key components has also varied, leading to variant outcomes in terms of the application and development of each flexible display technology. This report will analyze the flexible display technologies and their key components to outline the future of flexible displays.
