LG Display showed off a ranged on unique OLED and LCD panels at CES 2016, from new curved panels for the car, to a flexible panel that you can roll up like a newspaper.
LG Display, the part of LG that manufactures LCD and OLED panels, showed of a host of futuristic displays at CES 2016. The coolest and perhaps most interesting, was an 18-inch OLED display that you can roll up like a newspaper. The screen has a resolution of 1200 x 810 pixels, a curvature radius of 30R and can be rolled up to a radius of 3cm. Although the "rollable" display is just a prototype, it's impressive to see how far flexible display technology has advanced since LG Display unveiled a 5.5-inch screen at last year's CES.
LG Display also showed off several automotive displays, including 12.3-inch WQHD+ and 8.8-inch FHD panels designed to be used in car dashboards. For automotive screens that need touch sensitivity, the company also showed off 10.25-inch FHD and 9.2HD panels include LG Displays AIT technology, which embeds the touch sensor inside the LCD panel, eliminating the need for a separate layer of glass on top of it.
LG Display also showed me a 12.3-inch FHD pOLED automotive panel that can be curved. Being made from a plastic substrate, they are also last longer than traditional LCD screens and are less dangerous during a car crash.
Curved screens aren't just for the dashboard. LG Display also had a 25-inch "waterfall" touchscreen that could be used in a variety of locations inside a car. Both the smaller touch screens and this larger one can be operated while wearing gloves.
LG Display has shown of transparent displays before, but this 55-inch OLED display is one of the largest and provides 40% transparency compared to the 12-15% transparency you get with LCD panels. This display is designed for use in a commercial or retail setting, although it would also make a great addition to the door of my fridge.
