The future of TVs (and perhaps other displays) might be practically no TV at all if LG Display's vision plays out. As part of an event held to demonstrate its OLED manufacturing prowess, the firm showed off a concept for a 55" OLED TV that's only 0.03 inches (0.97 mm) thick and weighs only 4.2 lbs (1.9 kg). This flexible, ultra-thin display can be stuck to a wall using a magnetic mat.
LG Display is demonstrating this TV as publicity for its OLED manufacturing operation, which it plans to ramp up later this year. The company says OLED panel yields have improved to over 80 percent within a period of a year and a half, an achievement that is said to have taken over ten years for LCD panels. It hopes to sell 600,000 OLED panels in 2015 and 1.5 million such displays in 2016, targeting display sizes of up to 99 inches.
