This week, LG Display announced that it had successfully created an 18-inch flexible OLED paper-thin panel that can be rolled up like a newspaper. According to the company, the 18-inch flexible OLED panel has a 1200 x 810 resolution, nearly 1 million megapixels, and a curvature radius of 30R. As previously mentioned, the panel can also be rolled up to a radius of 3 centimeters without affecting the function of the display. The company reports that this new panel paves the way for “rollable” TVs of more than 50 inches in the future.
The OLED technology used in the LG display screens is apparently thinner, lighter and more flexible than conventional LCDs. “This isn’t the first time we’ve seen flexible displays, although this is likely the first of its kind to be larger than a smartphone,” writes Kevin Parrish.
