A couple of weeks ago LG launched the 55EC9300 55″ curved FHD OLED TV in the US, and now Best Buy announced that the 2nd-gen 55″ curved Full-HD OLED TV will ship on August 24th, for $3,499. Amazon also lists the TV for the same price, and will probably ship it soon as well . When LG launched their earlier model, the 55EA9800 , in June 2013, the price was $14,999 and the TV was only available in a few flagship Best Buy stores in their Magnolia high-end home theater departments. But this time, Best Buy will offer the new OLED TVs through over 1,000 stores, and also with regional chains and A/V dealers. Read more about LG 55EC9300 to ship in the US on August 24th for $3,499

New Videos/pictures LG-Display foldable 18 inch OLED Display – NEW VIDEO from LG-Displays flexible, foldable 18 inch OLED DIsplay
LG-Display showcase a flexible, bendable, foldable 18 inch full colour OLED Display with a 1200×810 pixel resolution . Check out our Interview with the developers Bak Won-Seo and Jo Min-Gu from LG-Display! Thanks to LG-Display we can showcase also some more exclusive pictures from this groundbreaking new technology. Bak Won-Seo team manager: For existing products, it was possible to curve them to some extent even if there were some issues such as thickness and material, but we couldn’t expect that they could be rolled. We started our final target to100R, due to technical difficulties. However, we were able to achieve the exteme radius of curvature with good results more than we expected. This radius of curvature is the largest technical distinction of a 18-inch flexible OLED which has been developed this time. It seems to be possible to implement it up to 30R with current technology. We has also applied it to a 18-inch display, with ongoing research and development for the mass production technology of a large-area flexible OLED display, not for the development of technology to produce a simple sample. Therefore it could be a great advantage that we can also produce a large-area flexible OLED, with our current technology
Universal display posted their financial results for Q2 2014. Revenues were $64.1 million, including a $25 license payment from SDC (up from $49.9 million in Q2 2013). net profit was $20.4 million. Material sales reached $35.9 million – $13.2 million from green host sales, $15 million for green emitter sales and $4.4 million for red emitter sales. Sales to LG Display reached $9 million (a little bit lower than in the first quarter). Sales to Samsung were somewhat “soft”, but this was offset by sales to other partners.

Dr. Mike Hack, GM OLED Lighting & Custom DIsplays, Vice President Universal Display says that “Mobile phones with gorgeous OLED displays are everywhere. OLED TVs are still somewhat in their infancy, but the prospects are looking very good for their becoming the next new TV technology. More manufacturers are entering the marketplace, and the range of applications for OLED displays is growing, with wearable being the next big thing. OLED lighting is also gaining traction, with prices being reduced and exciting new products being launched. And of course 2013 was a very significant year as we saw the launch of the first OLED products built on plastic, as opposed to the conventional glass substrates.” Flexible plastic AMOLED Panels will lead to very new, exciting and differentiated products, which could not be made from exciting technologies. This will apply both to displays and lighting, and we are just at the beginning of this new revolution.” OLEDs 2014 will kick off with two pre-conference short courses covering lighting manufacturing and test standards for the SSL market and the commercialization of graphene, followed by an afternoon focusing on broader topics in the OLED industry; a full day of business and technical focus on OLED displays/materials and a full day of OLED lighting topics. The OLEDs World Summit is the longest-running, preeminent business development and technical event dedicated exclusively to the OLEDs industry – connecting researchers with customers and manufacturers in both the lighting and display sectors
Samsung first unveiled the wrappable YOUM prototype that you see below in January 2013 – a year and a half ago. While the company is already producing flexible OLEDs, and have adopted one in the Galaxy Round , they have yet to release a product with a display that curves around the edges. A curved OLED prototype device (Samsung) According to reports from Korea, Samsung has now begun trial-production of panels that can be wrapped around edges (i.e. with a smaller curvature radius). They are still facing some technical issues with the plastic substrate, so real mass production is not expected soon. But Samsung may release a “technology-demonstrator” product, a limited-volume device just to show off the technology (as they did with the Galaxy Round ).

UBI Research says that while the AMOLED market is slated for a modest growth in 2014 (revenues of $10 billion, up from $8.9 billion in 2013), fast growth will resume from 2016 onwards. UBI sees a CAGR growth of 32% from 2016, till revenues reach $46.5 billion in 2020. UBI says that 2014′s revenue growth will be only 10% because both Samsung Display and LG Display delayed OLED investments. Samsung is already constructing its A3 flexible OLED line , and LG Display is also expected to start placing orders for flexible OLED production equipment for their upcoming Gen-6 fab. UBI also expects LGD to start constructing a new OLED TV fab, the M3 line (in addition to the M2 fab which is very close to mass production ). So the market is expected to recover its growth in mid 2015. Read more about UBI Research: AMOLED to resume fast growth from 2016

A couple of months ago, Samsung release the Galaxy S5 LTE-A , that sports the company’s latest AMOLED panel – a 5.1″ QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED. Anandtech posted a long review of this new phone, and they find that the display is actually a little bit more efficient than the 5.1″ FHD panel used in the GS5 , even though it sports a higher resolution (which usually means a less efficient display as the aperture ratio gets smaller. Anandtech further says that Samsung told them they switched to a new, improved emitter material for the new QHD panel, which explains the increased efficiency. This is interesting as the QHD display was released only a few months after Samsung started producing the FHD panel, which by itself was 27% more efficient than the previous generation panels – also due to more efficient OLED materials .

Samsung just sent press invitation to their Unpacked 2014 Episode 2 event, which will take place on September 3rd. It’s highly likely that the Galaxy Note 4 will be announced during the event (they even say “note the date”). As always before a major Samsung launch, we heard several reports (rumors?) regarding this device. Last month SamMobile claimed to have exclusive info detailing a QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED panel. On the same day, the Korea Times reported that Samsung will actually unveil two Note 4 variants – on with a regular flat display, and another with a curved one. A month earlier, a senior VP at Samsung Electronics said that the Note 4 will have a “new form factor” . Read more about Samsung to announce the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3rd, what should we expect?

A few days ago, LG launched the 55EC9300 55″ curved FHD OLED TV in the US, an upgrade to the original 55EA9800 . The official price was $6,999 – while online stores offered it for pre-orders for $3,999 to $4,999. LG quickly lowered the price, though, and Amazon now offers it for $3,499 – only $200 more than the 55EA9800 . The EC9300 features a faster refresh rate (240 Hz) compared to the 2013 model, and it’s brighter, too (500 cd/m 2 vs 350 cd/m 2 ). LG also changed the TV’s design and the TV is now based on LG’s new smart TV platform (WebOS). The EC9300 weighs 14.38 Kg without the stand.
