LG to introduce flat 4K OLED TVs in Korea soon

Jul 27, 2015

In January 2015, LG introduced six new OLED TVs, including flat, curved and bendable ones - and all of them featuring 4K resolution. Up until now the company only launched two curved OLEDs (the 55" and 65" EG9600). LG today says that they will soon launch new OLED TV models to the Korean market, including flat OLEDs.

This is great news as even though LG claims that image quality in curved panels is better, many consumers prefer flat OLEDs as these look better when wall mounted. The price of the flat models will be the same as that of the curved models.

LG in discussions to move its OLED lighting business from LG Chem to LG Display

Jul 24, 2015

According to reports from Korea, LG is considering moving the OLED lighting business from LG Chem to LG Display. The idea is that consolidating the OLED production of both displays and lighting in the same company will enable LG to advance OLED lighting more quickly - and at a lower cost.

The OLED Association goes on to speculate that LG Display may decide to convert one of its existing Gen-4.5 OLED display fabs to produce OLED lighting. This will make it even cheaper to expand capacity. Of course the downside is that LG Display will be more focused on displays than lighting as currently the OLED lighting market is still very small.

Visionox unveiled a new rollable flexible AMOLED panel prototype. This is a 4.6" panel with a resolution of 800x480. This display has a curvature radius of less than 3 mm and a thickness of only 20 μm.

Visionox says that they plan to mass producing such displays within two years. Looking at the video above, it's clear that there are still defects in this display, so it will take some work to achieve mass production of such a display.
