Message Text: A Samsung executive unveiled that its company is receiving orders from electronics makers for it new lineup of flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays, fueling rumors for future Apple mobile devices with screens that might bend and twist.

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Kwon Oh-hyun revealed that the company is getting "huge" orders from electronics makers for it flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays, the Korean Times reported from South Korea.

Despite their ongoing patent disputes, Apple remains Samsung's biggest customer for screens and memory chips. Apple has been setting the trends for quite some time now with the release of innovative products, so using flexibles in future devices that could make sense.

Of course, we could not expect Apple to comment on such a speculation.

Samsung already uses OLED screens for its Galaxy lineup of smartphones and touch-screen tablets. Nokia and LG Electronics are also in the midst of an OLED transition for their mobile devices.

Samsung recently dedicated a number of lines at its factory in Tangjeong, South Chungcheong Province, for the production of flexible OLED displays. The line will pump out 960,000 OLED sheets by the end of the year.

"We will be mass producing flexible OLED displays from the latter half of this year as the demand from our clients is significant," said Kwon. "OLEDs will replace LCDs as the main mobile displays from around 2015 as the screens are thinner and brighter. Samsung has massively invested in OLED-related technologies and will continue to do so, " he added.

LG Display is also planning to manufacture flexible mobile displays for its smartphones.
