The e-paper -- which measures 14.1 inches (35.9 centimetres) across its diagonal and is just 300 micrometres (0.3 millimetres) thin -- can display up
to 4,096 colours, the world's second largest liquid crystal display maker said in a statement.
It is designed to be energy-efficient, only using power when the image changes on the display, it said.
"This represents the next generation in display technology," Chung In-Jae, chief technology officer and executive vice president, said in the

Like the black and white flexible display, the color version uses a substrate that arranges Thin-Film Transistors (TFT) on metal foil rather than
glass, allowing it to recover its original shape after being bent. This model includes a color filter coated onto the plastic substrate, allowing it
to display color images.
LG Philips LCD’s use of metal foil and plastic substrate rather than glass substrate makes the flexible color E-paper display bendable and durable
while maintaining excellent display qualities.
It's about time something truly sexy came from the land of E-ink.
It's not yet a true replacement for paper, but I do have to wonder how long until "newspaper" sales actually make a comeback thanks to the
evolution of this technology.
