The thickness of the display is only 0.3 mm and weighs 130 grams and supply flexibility allows you to bend it in different directions, of course, within reasonable limits.

The developers of LG Display replaced when creating your screen traditional glass substrate at a thin layer of metal foil. This allows this display combines the flexibility and reliability. In addition, the screen has a high contrast ratio, and the technology used in its "electronic paper" makes it extremely energy efficient solution.

Indeed, the displays on the basis of "electronic paper" available energy is expended only when you update the image, which allows, for example, electronic books for a long time to work offline. In addition, for displaying images on the screen, then use external lighting, which reduces the load on the user's eyes.
