Will Hyundai Genesis adopt SDC's flexible OLEDs in future cars?

May 23, 2017

Last Month Hyuandai's premium sub-brand Genesis unveiled a concept car, the GV80 SUV, that featured a long curved OLED display - 22" in size, which we assumed was supplied by SDC. The Korea Herald reports today that Samsung is in talks with Genesis to supply OLED panels for its automobiles.

It's not clear if this first deal involves flexible OLEDs as was demonstrated in the GV80 or whether it will involve regular rigid OLEDs. The Korea Herald reports that Samsung is strongly pushing for a comeback into the automotive market with a range of technologies including displays, batteries and even the Tizen OS.

Loewe starts shipping its 77" Bild7.77 OLED TV for $16,700 in Europe

May 23, 2017

Loewe started shipping the 77" model of its first OLED series, the Bild 7. The price of this large OLED TV is €15,000 (or about $16,700). The 55" model costs €4,990 while the 65" model is available for €6,990.

The Bild 7 use flat-panel 4K OLED panels (produced by LG Display) and feature Loewe's own image processing software (VantaVision) and a slim and powerful soundbar (that is revealed only when the TV is on, as the panel automatically slides upwards when activated). The Bild 7 is 7 mm thick and was designed to look good even from behind (with fabric concealing the connector and cables) so to enable all installation options. The TV is delivered with a wall bracket and Loewe also offers a range of specially-designed stands.

Samsung Display to supply 180 million flexible OLED panels for the 2018 iPhone 9

May 23, 2017

According to the Korea Herald, Samsung Display has signed an agreement with Apple to supply flexible OLEDs for Apple's iPhone 9, due out in late 2018. The Korea Herald says that Apple will launch two iPhone 9 OLED models - with display sizes of 5.28" and 6.46". Of course the final display size is subject to change as the design of the iPhone 9 is not final yet.

SDC's total OLED shipments to Apple in 2018 will reach 180 million units, and Samsung will dedicate one of its upcoming flexible OLED fabs exclusively for Apple's displays.

Nanoco and Kyulux to co-develop hybrid OLED / QLED display technology

May 22, 2017

Hyperfluoresence and TADF OLED emitter developer Kyulux and quantum-dot developer Nanoco announced that the two companies will co-develop a future-generation hybrid OLED / QLED display technology that combines Kyulux's hyperflourescent emitters and Nanoco's heavy metal free quantum dots (CDQDs).

Kyulux and Nanoco say that future displays based on this technology will have superior qualities compared to existing displays - high degree of brightness, energy efficiency, color purity and low cost.

A report from Korea claims that LGD decided to produce LCDs and not OLEDs in its upcoming P10 fab

May 22, 2017

Towards the end of 2015 LG Display announced that it plans to build a new OLED fab (P10) in Paju in a $8.7 billion investment to produce both mid-sized flexible OLED and large-sized OLED TV panels. Production was planned for the first half of 2018.

According to a new report from Korea, LGD decided to scrap these plans and use the P10 fab to produce LCD panels and not OLEDs. LGD will establish a 10.5-Gen production line and will start making large-area LCDs (mostly 75" TV panels) towards the end of 2018.

OLED-Info readers get a 20% discount on Fluxim's large-area OLED simulation software

May 22, 2017

Leading simulation and measurement tool provider Fluxim and OLED-Info have teamed up to offer a 20% discount on Fluxim's large-area OLED simulation software LAOSS.

Fluxim Laoss software for AMOLED displays and OLED lighting image

LAOSS is a software tool that simulates large area semiconductor devices (OLED and PV), taking into account the voltage drop in the electrodes due to important resistive effects when the size of the device increases. LAOSS facilitates electrode layout optimization and material choice, which can save substantial time and resources. Both OLED lighting panel design and study of AMOLED pixel cross-talk is just a click away.

Cynora announces its latest blue TADF OLED emitter performance

May 22, 2017

Germany-based blue-TADF OLED emitter developer Cynora announced that it achieved a new performance record with its latest blue emitter material - which the company believes is the best overall performance of a high-efficiency blue emitter ever.

Cynora's new blue achieves a 15% EQE at 1000 cd/m² with an emission peak at < 470 nm and a LT97 of > 90 hours (at 700 cd/m²) on a device level. Cynora says that it is very confident that it can commercialize its first highly efficient blue emitter by the end of this year, as planned.
