Flexible Screen Solution For Crack In Screen:
Currently, in Samsung Galaxy Edge series, a flexible OLED screen is present. However, the manufacturing of these flexible screens is much costlier as compared to LCDs.
Now, according to Japan Display Inc. which supplies parts to Apple said it is developed Full Active Flex LCD screens in which plastic substrate is present instead of glass, this plastic substrate will allow the screen to bend easily.

If in case that screen will not be flexible enough to roll up, it will be at least expected that these flexible screens will be used in smartphones that have rounded side, as in Samsung Galaxy Edge and Galaxy S series.

It was also noted by sources of WSJ that Apple is also considering on using these flexible screens in future iPhones.if Apple uses these screens in iPhones then it will be a good news for Apple lovers.
