Samsung Display, the display-making affiliate of Samsung Electronics, will launch a flexible display for smartphones that can be folded in half, a senior company executive said.

"We will secure production capacity of 30,000 to 40,000 [flexible displays each month] by the end of next year," said Lee Chang-hoon, vice president of business strategic team, Samsung Display, during Samsung Investor Forum 2014 in New York. "There will be no company [except Samsung] that has this great production capacity by 2016.

"We plan to provide consumers with a product that has a flexible display by the end of the year. However, nothing has been decided on the finished product," added Lee.

Samsung Electronics is planning to expand its product line of flexible-display smartphones following the warm reception of the Galaxy Note Edge, which has a curved display that wraps around its side. Samsung Display is currently expanding production capacity of its A3 line, which produced the curved display for the Edge.
