LG has shown off the potential future of portable TV. The tech company showed off two new types of displays yesterday. One was an 18-inch transparent OLED panel. Sounds cool, but the other sounds incredible. An 18-inch OLED panel that can be rolled up.
LG says the rollable OLED panel sports a resolution of 1200 x 810 and can be rolled up to a radius of 3 centimeters without adversely affecting the display.
How did LG make this panel? With a “high molecular substance-based polyime film.”
LG has high hopes to combine two techs and launch TVs that are rollable and transparent by 2017.
“We are confident that by 2017 we will successfully develop an Ultra HD flexible and transparent OLED panel of more than 60 inches, which will have transmittance of more than 40% and a curvature radius of 100R,” said Byung Kang, senior VP at LG.
This isn’t the first time LG has shown off its flexible screens. They impressed CES attendees earlier this year with the rollable screens. LG isn’t the only one working on this kind of tech either. Samsung and Nokia have also created flexible screens.
I’ve got a feeling the future of TV is going to blow our minds in a few years.
What do you think of LG’s flexible screens? The next big thing? Or, just neat tech that never catches on.
