LG unveils OLED TV panel less than 1mm thick

19 May 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

The 55-inch OLED TV panel is only 0.97 mm thick and sticks to the wall with magnets. LG Display also plans to introduce a 99-inch OLED panel later this year, according to Yonhap News.

Earlier today, LG Display showcased the latest development in OLED technology. The highlight of the show was a 55-inch “wallpaper” OLED panel that is only 0.97 millimeters thick. The existing OLED panel in LG’s 55-inch TV is 4.3 mm thick.

The OLED panel is so thin and so light (1.9 kilograms) that it can stick to the wall only by using a magnetic mat. LG did not comment on its plans for commercialization of the panel.

LG Display will ramp up production of OLED TV panels in the third quarter this year in an effort to supply other manufacturers with OLED TV panels, but refused to elaborate on which clients have shown interest. Rumors suggest that it is Panasonic and Sony.

- "It has taken a year and half for us to raise the yield to this level (for OLEDs), while it'd taken nearly 10 years to achieve the yield for LCDs," said Yeo Sang-deog, head of LG Display's OLED division to Yonhap News.

LG Display will continue to focus on large-size OLED TVs and plans to introduce a 99-inch OLED panel later this year, in addition to the existing 55, 65 and 77-inch panels. The company will also continue to invest in flexible and rollable OLED panels for small and mid-size devices.
