Changhong, Skyworth and Konka release UHD 4k OLED-Tv in 2014 – Chinese companies use LG-Display panels! Samsung has no plans for releasing OLED TV…
As you know LG-Electronics/LG-Display want to introduce Curved ULTRA HD 4K OLED TV in Q4 2014 ! The goal is to introduce a 55, 65 and 77 inch OLED-Television device with 4K in 2014 for about 10,000 for the 65 inch and $34,000 77 inch. The chinese Television makers Changhong, Skyworth and Konka plans to use the 4K OLED-Panels for their own branded products. All of these companies want to be the first to introduce the 4K OLED Television devices. The ever-growing Chinese market is estimated to be a ferocious battlefield to hold sway over the future of next-generation TV market. The television market in chinese is amazing, that is the reason why LG-Electronics plans to showcase its next-generation OLED TV models for the first time especially in China. LG want to expand their market shares in China with this new technology. In particular, for UHD TV, LG Electronics recorded a 1.9% share in the first quarter. Samsung Electronics’ market share in the first quarter was 5.2%. In Q3 2014 LG-Display plan a exclusive promotional event in Beijing to promote their technology. Also Panasonic will discuss the technology standards, and their are rumors that Panasonic plans also to use LGs panels
OLED Display costs for Smartphones to fall below LCD soon – In 2016 AMOLED handset Panel Costs Expected to Fall Below LCD-Displays
Thanks to improvements and the investements from the leading OLED company Samsung-Display the production costs of organic light emitting diode panels for handsets, smartphones are near at the same level like LCD-Displays. DisplaySearch says in their Technology report that the manufacturing consts for AMOLED panels for handsets are currently 10-20 percent higher than for LCD Displays. In two years OLED panels were expected to cost less than LCD panels, thanks to major improvements in production yields. In 2014 a 5 inch Super-Amoled Display costs about 16 percent more than a LCD with the same size and resolution. Instead of LCD OLED does not need a backlight, and has a better color gamut, higher contrast, super fast response time and slimness. Jimmy Kim senior from DisplaySearch says: “Until recently there have been few breakthroughs in the production of AMOLED displays, and the OLED industry seemed to be facing hard times,” If Organic light emitting diode Panels are cheaper than LCD and does have a better picture quality, it would lead more opportunities for that industry, with greater competition with LCD. At the moment Samsung Display has problems to sell Super-Amoled to rival companies! Source
LG Display 18 inch flexible OLED Display – World largest flexible OLED Display suggest 60-inch rollable TVs
LG Display showcase the world largest flexible/foldable OLED-Display. The Display has a size from about 18 inch it is a full colour display which is foldable and rollable, you can roll it into a tube that´s a mere 3cm across. This is only a protoype and has a 1200×810 pixel resolution which is based on a new polyamide film on the back of the backplane. With the new material instead of plastic, LG can realize more flexibility and the panel is thinner. About this information we informed you already , LG plans a Ultra HD flexible and transparent rollable Television device with mor than 60 inches in 2017, says the Head of R&D In-Byung Kang.

Samsung Display no rival company buy Super-Amoled – Samsung Display ramp up a new production plant in Vietnam
Samsung Display says that no rival company want to buy Super-Amoled Display technology for their smartphones. Only Samsung Electronics for its Galaxy S series , Note, Galaxy Tab-S Galaxy-Gear, Fit etc. products use Super-Amoled Displays. Samsung Displays CEO no Samsung rival like HTC, Sony, Nokia etc are interested in that kind of displays. The CEO Park Dong geun says at an industry event in Seoul that only Samsung Electronics buys AMOLED Display technology for its mobile devices, no other firms are doing the same. Samsung Display plans to expand their market share also in china but here we are just a the beginning! It is really a surprise because the new Super-Amoled which features the S5 and the Galaxy Tab-S series are the best displays for smartphones and Tablet-Pcs. These results are tested in the lab ! The company has argued that AMOLED will deliver better visuals for device makers, but other companies have been content with different technologies, including liquid-crystal displays (LCDs).’ Samsung Display thinks that the problem is not the display or the price, it might have something to do with Samsung Electronics. That company is competing against a wide range of mobile-device makers that don’t want to fill the coffers of its parent company, Samsung.

Researchers from Philips, Graphenea and the University of Cambridge developed a new graphene-based transparent electrode that outperforms ITO in OLED lighting panels. . Graphene by itself is not a good electrode material because the concentration of the charge carriers is low – which means that you need to dope it with excess carriers – while leaving it flexible and transparent. To achieve that, the team used a metal oxide film (molybdenum trioxide, MoO 3 ) as an intermediate layer between the graphene and the OLED layers. The work was performed as part of the EU project GRAFOL, aimed at roll-to-roll mass production of graphene.

LG Display flexible-transparent OLEDs for the automotive industry – FLexible OLED DIsplays for German Car Makers and KIA’s Premium Vehicle K900
There are rumors that LG-Display will supply flexible OLED Displays to german car manufacturers like Mercedes Daimler Benz LG has the goal to stregthen its presence in the automotive display market. In 2013 the company posted 500 billion won in sales of automotive displays. LG Display plans to deliver their displays to the market of premium vehicles. Along with supplying displays to Europe’s premium car manufacturers including Daimler Benz since 2003, LG have recently began to supply leading global automotive manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, KIA and GM, distinguishing ourselves in the automotive display market. In 2013 the korean company started to deliver displays for the KIA K900 for the central display device and entertainment device in the back seat. LG plans to achieve 500 million dollar in 2014 (LCD), $1 billion in 2016, and $2 billion in 2018. This would translate to 100% growth every two years. LG want to introduce also transparent OLED Displays to the car industry. With transparent and flexible OLED Display technology they can reach the goal to become the leading automotive display company. The car industry love OLEDs because they can be delivered flexible, transparent, lighter, thinner better quality than LCD DIsplays.
There’s an interesting report from ETNews stating that OLED TV producers (LG and Samsung, at the moment) will focus on UHD resolutions on their OLED TVs. It makes sense because OLEDs are marketed as premium TVs, so they cannot have LCDs have any advantages except the price. ETNews says that Samsung aims to re-enter the OLED TV market and release 55″ UHD OLED panels by the end of 2014. This will be great, if only to show that Samsung did not really exit the OLED TV market. Samsung does face some technical challenges, and even if they do release UHD TVs, they will probably not be able to really mass produce them and so prices will be high.

In 2009, Fraunhofer’s COMEDD (Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices) was established as a department of the Fraunhofer IPMS . Two years ago in July 2012 COMEDD was turned into an independent Fraunhofer Institute . Today we hear that COMEDD is merging with the Fraunhofer’s FEP (Electron Beam, Plasma Technology) to become COMEDD FEP . The director of the new institute, Prof. Volker Kirchhoff, is looking forward for “significant advances”, especially in the area of barrier films for flexible organic components and OLED-based microdisplays. Fraunhofer FEP expertise was in processes and equipment in electron beam and plasma technology, whereas COMEDD was focused on organic semiconductors and device development.

On March 2014, Sony unveiled the Morpheus VR HMD system, specifically designed for the PS4 console. The original prototype system shown by Sony used a 5″ Full-HD (1920×1080) LCD panel ( Oculus’s VR system uses a Full-HD OLED ). It’ll take a while for Sony to release this as a product (they say it won’t happen before the end of 2014) – but there are now reports that Sony is changing the display to a 2560×1440 OLED display (1280×1440 for each eye). Like Oculus, Sony probably wants a low-persistant display as LCDs simply aren’t up to par with OLEDs in that regard. Read more about Will Sony use an OLED in their upcoming Morpheus VR System?
