Under the terms of the deal, the two companies are forming an alliance to develop large-sized OLED for TVs. JOLED said that it will submit its proprietary printed OLED manufacturing technology.

In contrast to LG Display's OLED TV panel, JOLED's panel use RGB pixels (red, green, blue) that can potentially increase color gamut and volume. The companies did not comment on a timeline.

The company is also exploring a hybrid OLED/QLED technology that it refers to as 'H-QLED'.
