LG Display has unveiled the world’s largest OLED.EX display at the 2022 Society for Information Display (SID), held recently in San Jose, California, as well as a variety of innovative bendable OLED screen solutions.

Like previous EX screens, the monster panel boosts brightness by 30 per cent. Expect it to join the LG consumer roster in due course.

As part of a vision for home screens in the future, LG Display also presented a 55-inch transparent OLED shelf able to blend seamlessly into any décor; it can be used to view content, display art, and add an interior effect to the room through an Always On Display mode.

Other products showcased at the event include a 17-inch foldable OLED laptop, able to transform from laptop to portable monitor, and a 42-inch Bendable OLED gaming display, which boasts a curvature range of up to 1,000R, or a radius of 1,000mm. The idea seems to be that gamers can bend and straighten the screen to suit the game they are playing or the show they are watching.

LG Display also unveiled a completely new form of foldable OLED technology: its 8-inch 360-degree Foldable OLED freely folds in both inward and outward directions. Apparently, the screen can be folded over 200,000 times without compromising its performance thanks to an all-new module structure. It uses a special folding structure to minimise creasing.

Designed for commercial applications, the company also previewed OLED in-TOUCH and Transparent OLED in-TOUCH technologies for larger OLED displays, promising an improved interactive touch-screen experience.

Aimed at the automotive market, the 34-inch P-OLED display is the world’s largest automotive P-OLED. It has a maximum curvature of 800R, allowing the driver a clear view of the dashboard and navigation system at the same time.

Also new is a 0.42-inch OLEDoS (OLED on Silicon) display built for Augmented Reality (AR) devices; this uses the silicon wafers used in semiconductors to create immersive AR visuals. Resolution is said to be 3,500 pixels per inch.
