The LG G Flex with its self-healing flexible display was an oddity that made it stand out among the crowd of smartphones. It seems like the smartphone was only the beginning, and a roadmap has revealed LG’s plans for launching devices with displays that can bend, fold, and roll-up.

According to the roadmap, LG will unveil a bendable smartphone as early as next year, followed by devices with folding and rollable displays in 2017. The company will achieve this by using P-OLED panels, which essentially uses plastic instead of glass. LG says that P-OLED is lighter, thinner and simpler to build, and is also less likely to break compared to standard OLED panels.

LG is clearly excited about P-OLED’s potential says that it will “play an important role in people’s everyday lives in the future.” While the company hasn’t revealed any details about the kind of devices that are incoming, the roadmap shows smartwatches, tablets, car audio systems, and televisions.
With 2014 nearing an end, it is likely we won’t have to wait long to see the first of LG’s devices. The company could unveil its bendable smartphone at CES or MWC next year.
