LG is demonstrating its video flexible and transparent OLED displays

LG announced a few days ago the new OLED displays, including a completely flexible and one transparent. Their size is 18 inches and they are currently at the prototype stage, but the videos uploaded by the Korean are pretty convincing.

In 2012, the government of South Korea has a mission to LG to build, by 2017, OLED screens of 60 inches transparent and flexible. LG had then committed to producing 17-inch screens before the end of 2014 to prove the possibility of such a feat. The promise was kept, and even exceeded, since LG is demonstrating two screens of 18 inches each. One is flexible and the other is transparent. It only remains to add the two technologies and larger slabs to deliver flexible and transparent televisions.

In the video demonstration (in the end), we can see the slab flexible enough to be bent frank. LG shows that we can create curves of a 3cm radius without damaging the screen. This is worse than the LG G Flex screen that can get him down to 700mm, which is due to screen size: 6 inches against 18 inches. This is also an opportunity to recall that flexible OLED displays already exist since it is technology that is found in the LG G Flex. Our colleagues from Anandtech had also carried out a demonstration in the screen of the shell of the phone. He can bend in operation. However, in the phone, nothing moves. This is normal because this is the only truly flexible component.

The futuristic phone handy

We are therefore far more transparent and flexible phones as can be seen regularly in science-fiction movies. But it seems that the displays are a bit ahead of the rest of the components. They already have a head start in terms of definition / resolution and now physical abilities. Besides that, we have batteries that are heavy for their ability and who are not prepared to be flexible. This applies also to all other components as the SoC and all electronic circuits. However, miniaturization would in a few years to cram all the electronics down the smartphone, on a tape with a transparent and flexible screen above. But for what purpose?
