Maybe in response to analysts doubting the future of OLED TVs, LG Display held a showcase today in Korea with its latest OLED TV prototypes. So first of all, the company unveiled a new 0.97 mm thick 55" flat OLED panel, that virtually "sticks to the wall" using magnets. The OLED panel itself weighs only 1.9 Kg.
LG Display also demonstrated a convex OLED panel - that will mainly be used for digital signage for large-scale outdoor advertising (this is not a new idea, Panasonic demonstrated similar panels last year). Finally, LG revealed plans to release a large 99" TV within the year.
LGD aims to ramp up OLED TV production from Q3 2015, to a "substantial level", and they "should be able to supply a satisfactory volume to clients from July or August". These clients aren't just LG Electronics - LGD is gearing up to supply panels to other makers (including, perhaps, Panasonic) that will join their upcoming OLED TV alliance.
