One of the new technologies is a 4.1-inch rollable OLED panel that can be rolled around a pencil. The OLED panel is just 0.08 millimeters thick (80 um). A typical human hair is 100 um (micrometers) thick.

The panel is also very flexible. It has a 432x240 pixel resolution and 16.7 million colors and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The OLED panel builds on a so called OTFT-driven OLED display.

Sony expects to continue developing very thin and flexible OLED solutions for mobile solutions. The OLED panels offers very thin profiles and are very low-weight and durable. The flexible panel also gives manufacturers the possibility to experiment with form-factor and shapes.

  • Size of a panel : 4.1 inch wide
  • Pixels : 432 x 240 x RGB pixels
  • Size of a pixel : 210um x 210um
  • Resolution : 121 ppi (pixels per inch)
  • Number of colors : 16,777,216
  • Peak luminance : >100 cd/m2
  • Contrast ratio : >1000:1
  • Minimum bending radius : 4 mm
  • Thickness of a panel : 80 um
