Flexible displays are becoming a popular theme in electronics right now. Laptops have had them for a while, where a laptop can be folded into a tablet, but not there are foldable phones, where a phone will have two screens that can fold like a book. For this to work, the display relays on LED, which is different from most displays that are made out of glass.

The LED is made of plastic, and they will not break, even if bent. This one key factor leads many to be leery about the displays because most think of plastic as something easy to break. However, a lot of people miss their flip phones are willing to give the foldable phones a try.

Flexible displays would need to rely heavily on the display technology that already exists right now, which is more commonly known as LED. What makes the flexible displays different from the usual displays is they are not made out of glass. They are made out of plastic, which means that they will not break even if people would try to bend them. People are a bit unsure about this.

There are some who feel that this would not work because the display that can be given by plastic will still not be the same with what glass can provide. Some say that this is okay because they have missed their flip phones, which is where flexible displays are commonly being used right now.
