The Cherub is a luxury lighted “winged sculpture” designed by Italy’s Pugnale & Nyleve. The designers explain that the Cherub sites on a “small throne of light”, made from two OLED frames put together at a right angle, lighting the figure from underneath. It can be placed on shelves, consoles, tables, or wherever you need a significant presence. The Cherub can be connected wireless to your iOS phone, and comes with an application that can control the mode of lighting. The Cherub uses two Philips GL350 2nd-Gen OLED panels (45 lm/W, 200 lumens brightness each). The Cherub comes in two versions (single-color finished in gold and two-colors in black color and gold or black and scarlet). The Cherub costs €5,700, but is currently offered for the special launch price of only €3,990. More information can be found here .

Aixtron and Manz signed a strategic cooperation agreement for OLED manufacturing. The two companies will co-develop solutions for efficient OLED production, based on Aixtron’s OVPD technology. Aixtron says that together with Manz, they plan to develop a Gen-8 (2300×2500 mm) system that can deposit OLED materials efficiently. Aixtron’s part in this collaboration is the further development of OVPD process technology, while Manz will contribute its experience in purifying and handling large-scale glass substrates and the development and manufacturing of large vacuum systems. Aixtron and Manz will assemble a demonstration Gen-8 system in the coming months at one of Aixtrons’s clean rooms. Read more about Aixtrno and Manz to co-develop Gen-8 OVPD deposition systems

Samsung bendable 55-inch 4K OLED-Tv CES-2014 – Movable 55-inch OLED-Television from Samsung at CES-2014
Can you remember our article Samsung and LG will introduce flexible Prototypes of OLED TVs ? We wrote this article on 4. December 2013, and for a few days we saw a 77 inch 4K OLED-Television which is flexible via command from LG-Display. Now Samsung showcase also a bendable-flexible OLED-Television device at CES-2014 . This is a concept prototype but it allows you to shift it from flat screen to a curved set.With the remote control you can change the angle of the size so the TV comes out of each side. You can change the angle like you want to get the best picture quality for your movie. You can improve the viewing angles, or if you want switch it via remote control to a flat screen and you can mount it on your wall. Samsung has filled some patent to introduce this kind of technology in the next few years. LG says that they are production ready and to bring this kind of technology to the market soon. We are sure that we will not see this kind of new category of Television before 2015.The resolution from the flexible OLED panels are 4K!
TCL is showing their first OLED TV prototype at CES 2014. All we know is that it is a flat 55″ Full-HD panel, and it looks like this: It’s highly likely that TCL did not produce this panel (even though the company is advancing towards AMOLED production ). I’d guess that LG Display provided those panels (hopefully TCL didn’t just take part LG’s OLED TVs without permission ). LG Display is also providing OLED panels for China’s Skyworth .

Panasonic 4K 55 inch OLEDs with are bendable in both ways CES-2014 – Panasonic RGB all-printing method OLED at CES-2014
Panasonic has its own printing technology which the japanese company can print 4K OLED-Television devices. At IFA-2013 the company showcased a 56 inch 4K printed OLED-Tv. Now at CES-2014 Panasonic showcase a curved 4K OLED panel which are produced in Japan with Panasonic´s own RGB all printing method. At the booth there are six 55 inch panels in a row in an S shape, three concave displays up to three convex ones to create this amazing shape. But this Displays are curved and not flexible like LGs 77 inch prototype at CES. End 2013 Sony and Panasonic stop their partnership to develop printed OLED panels with the Super Top Emission method from Sony. But it looks like Panasonic want to go the way for the mass production alone and want to introduce printed OLEDs in the next few years. Panasonic printing method means that the organic materials are applied to the substrate through a printing technique to form an electroluminescent (EL) layer.
Sony and Panasonic recently cancelled their OLED TV joint-development project , so we weren’t expecting any OLED TVs from Panasonic at CES (even though they did say they will continue to develop OLED technology alone). So it’s a nice surprise to see Panasonic show six 55″ curved OLED TV prototypes at CES. Interesting, three of those panels are convex and they all combine to create a long and cool S-shape display: These are just prototype of course, but apparently the TVs are spectacular. Panasonic’s earlier flat 56″ 4K Prototypes ( unveiled at CES 2013 ) used AUO produced Oxide-TFT backplanes and Sumitomo’s P-OLED materials (deposited in a printing process) and a direct-emission architecture. It’s highly likely that these new prototypes are made using the same materials and printing process. Read more about Panasonic shows 55" curved OLED TV prototypes at CES 2014

Yesterday we reported that Samsung unveiled a 85″ bendable TV prototype at CES , and at that post I assumed that this was an LCD panel. But I’m happy to be mistaken – it’s actually an OLED, as you can see from Samsung’s booth photo clearly saying this is a bendable OLED TV: It actually seems to me that those OLED TVs in the photo above aren’t so big – it seems to be around 55″ in size and not 85″. So perhaps these are different prototype, I’m not sure, but now it seems likely that the 85″ prototype bendable TV is also an OLED. Read more about Samsung's bendable TV prototype is an OLED

We already knew that LG aims to bring the G Flex smartphone to the US, but now AT&T officially announced it plans to offer the flexible OLED phone. In addition, LG revealed that Sprint and T-Mobile will also offer the phone soon. LG says we should expect the phone in the US within a month or two (in Q1 2014), but they wouldn’t reveal the price (but you can be sure this is going to be very expensive).

We heard several reports from Korea that Samsung is set to unveil AMOLED tablets at CES . Samsung indeed release several new tablets at CES, but all of them use LCD displays. The main new family of tablets is the Galaxy Tab Pro, which comes in 12.2″, 10.1″ and 8.4″ sizes – and all use 2560×1600 LCDs. So far Samsung is disappointing us at CES – there’s no new OLED products on display. Hopefully previous reports that the company is shifting its focus back to LCD to lower costs aren’t true. We still know that SDC regards OLEDs as the future display for premium devices . Perhaps they are indeed shifting their OLED focus to flexible displays .

LG’s Lifeband touch is a wearable fitness device that pairs up with Android and iOS devices. It sports a small touch white OLED (looks to be a PMOLED ) that can display incoming call and text information. The Lifeband touch can be paired with LG’s Heart Rate Monitor earphones that measure signals from the inner ear to track heartbeats. LG didn’t yet announce teh release date for the Lifeband touch.
