The best of 2018 - top OLED stories

2018 is soon over - and this has been a somewhat challenging year for the OLED industry. The beginning of the year saw a slump in OLED shipments following disappointing iPhone X shipments, slower adoption in Chinese smartphone brands and delays in OLED capacity increases by OLED makers. Towards the end of the 2018, however, the industry started to pick up but OLED adoption is still expected to be slower than what we hoped for in 2017.

Here are the top 10 stories posted on OLED-Info in 2018, ranked by popularity (i.e. how many people read the story):

A new guide to promising perovskite materials: The Perovskite Handbook

The OLED-Info team takes pleasure in recommending our new book - The Perovskite Handbook, which gives a comprehensive introduction to perovskite materials, applications and industry. We believe that any display professional would find that perovskite materials are an area of focus that should not be ignored.

The Perovskite Handbook

Perovskites offer a myriad of exciting properties and has great potential for the display industry. The promising perovskite industry is currently at a tipping point and on the verge of mass adoption and commercialization and the first display-related perovskites are already reaching the market.

The importance of OLED display performance and quality

Recently several display producers in Korea and China started to produce mobile flexible OLED display, aiming to compete with Samsung Display for the high-end part of the smartphone display market.

Some of these new displays suffer from display quality issues - whether from the display itself (as was the case in the first LGD pOLEDs used in the Google Pixel 2 devices) and some from the assembly contacts (which seems to be the case in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro).

OLED Microdisplays now available on the OLED Marketplace

We're happy to announce that The OLED Marketplace is now listing OLED Microdisplays, in addition to the current wide offering of PMOLED and AMOLED displays.

OLED Microdisplays are tiny (usually less than one inch in diameter) displays used in near-eye applications - such as VR/AR, industrial and military applications and more. The OLED microdisplay market is seeing increased interest at these microdisplays can enable much smaller and more efficient VR systems, compared to the current HMDs which use smartphone-sized OLED displays.
