New OLED innovations have been unveiled.
LG has revealed its latest OLED display technologies. At a recent Korean press event, the company demoed a new OLED panel that can stick to a customer's wall using magnets.
The 55-inch display prototype measures just 0.97 mm thick and weighs only 4.2 pounds. Using a special magnetic mat, the panel can be attached to a user's wall like a high-tech wallpaper. In addition to the magnetic screen, the company also highlighted a convex OLED display geared toward digital signage and announced plans to release an OLED TV as big as 99-inches later this year.
Though LG remains the only major electronics manufacturer currently developing OLED TVs, the company has once again renewed its commitment to the tech and will increase OLED production from the third quarter of this year. LG expects to sell 600,000 OLED units this year and 1.5 million units in 2016. The 55EC9300 OLED HDTV is now on sale for $3,000 and the 55EA9800 curved-screen OLED HDTV is currently on sale for $2,000. Likewise the company's 65EC9700 ($8,999), 65EG9600 ($8,999), and 55EG9600 ($5,499) 4K Ultra HD OLED displays are also available for purchase.
