LG expands flexible, transparent OLED displays to 77-inch

June 22, 2017 // By Julien Happich
LG Display has developed the world’s largest flexible and transparent display, according to a report from the Korea Herald.

With a 77-inch diagonal, the display has a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels, a transparency of 40 percent and can be bent to a radius of curvature of 80mm.

The development of the flexible and transparent display is part the national Future Flagship Program with an investment of a total of 126.2 billion won ($110 million). LG Display was chosen in 2012 by the government to lead the project, beating out its rival Samsung Display. 

“The completion of this large flexible and transparent display is expected to contribute to expanding new OLED markets,” said Kang In-byeong, a chief technology officer of LG Display, at an event to showcase the technology held in Seoul. 

There, the company LG unveiled some applications, including a smart desk and an augmented reality aquarium, based on the large flexible display. The company recently demonstrated thin transparent LED films for use in digital signage and for interactive architectural features and it hopes large flexible and transparent OLED displays could complement such applications.
