LG reveals 18-inch flexible, rollable, and transparent OLED panels, aims for 60 inches by 2017
LG today revealed a new line of OLED display panels that are flexible, rollable, and even transparent. The flexible version sports a resolution of 1200 X 810, and LG says it can produce televisions with this type of display at sizes of up to 50 inches in the future. The panel can be rolled up without affecting its performance at all.
The transparent panel, on the other hand, features 30% transmittance, an improvement over previous models which could only reach around 10%. While you probably won’t want to watch TV on something like this, it’s still quite the technical achievement. The company says it is “confident” that by 2017 it can produce both of these types of displays in ultra HD resolution at sizes of 60 inches or larger (with a transmittance of 40% in the case of the transparent model).
