LG unveils its new flexible, paper-thin TV

12.08.2015 | ScienceAlert | www.sciencealert.com

LG has shown off its new bendable, paper-thin TV panels, and it’s got us looking forward to a future with no cords, TV cabinets, and rickety stands.

The South Korean company revealed a new 18-inch panel at a press show last week, plus two smaller iterations - one version that’s entirely transparent, and another that can be rolled up like a newspaper to a radius of just 3 centimetres.

According to LG, their new organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays are not only flexible enough to curve around the walls and corners of your home or office, they’re virtually impossible to break, and are thinner and lighter than any LCD screen currently on the market. You just need to attach a thin, magnetic base to your wall, and the ‘wallpaper’ screen can be placed on and peeled off at your leisure.

The company has been able to achieve a 4-mm thickness thanks to the OLED technology - because the display produces its own light, no backlight is required to bulk up the design. The screen also offers a brighter, clearer picture than current LCD screens, with a high-definition resolution of 1,200 x 810 and over 1 million megapixels. The new transparent OLED panel is said to have a 30 percent transmittance, or clarity, which is far more than the usual 10 percent transmittance of existing transparent LCD panels.
