LG Electronics is one of the major electronics brands worldwide, and the Korea Times is reporting they have succeeded in creating a rollable OLED panel. LG Electronics says the image on these rollable OLEDs, which are 18″ in size, is obvious with a resolution of 1200×810. Along with MOTIE (Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy), LG Electronics collaborated on the panel, which they believe will be a source of growth for the country’s economy. LG believes it can start producing displays up to 50″ in size soon and wants to have sizes up to 60″ by 2017.

A decade ago, seeing rollable and transparent displays just seemed like a distant dream; however, they are now becoming available for households,” said a spokesman.

The evolution of displays continues at a rapid pace; this year at CES 2014, we saw plenty of curved televisions from various companies. The applications for a rollable transparent display are probably going to be up for debate. It’s just very cool to see technology continue to move forward, even if it’s not going to make it into every application they might experiment with necessarily.

“LG Display is far ahead of rivals in the race for applied OLED displays. There are many challenging issues that need to be addressed before mass production, but we are confident we will lead the market,” said Kang In-byung, head of LG Display’s technology center in the statement.
