A report from SinoCast claims that LG has decided to sell OLED production equipment to Tianma . The deal was signed in May 2016 and deliveries of the equipment have now commenced. This is a rather strange report. First of all, the company mentioned was LG Electronics, which do not produce OLED displays – LG Display (the report does say that “LGD uses the same equipment”).

Taiwan-based PMOLED maker Wisechip announced it is developing transparent and flexible PMOLED displays last year, and the company has presented new prototype displays in a trade show in Germany last week. Wisechip demonstrated three flexible OLEDs – a 1.8″ 160×32 panel and a 1.36″ 128×16 panel. Both are monochrome (white) panels as you can see in the photo above. The third display is a 256×64 one. The curvature radius of Wisechip’s displays is 40 mm. The photo also includes a demonstration of a PMOLED display embedded in a credit card form.

In January 2017 Sony finally launched its first real OLED TV , the XBR-A1E Bravia OLED TV , and now Sony announced the prices of its TVs: $5,000 for the 55″ model and $6,500 for the 65″ one. That’s somewhere between LG’s OLEDE7 and Signature OLEDG7 OLED TVs . Sony’s XBR-A1E feature a flat 4K HDR WRGB OLED panel (produced by LG Display), an Android TV platform and a built-in speaker which is part of the stand behind the TV to create a stand-less form factor. There will also be a 77-inch model, but Sony did not reveal the price of that one yet. Read more about Sony prices its XBR-A1E OLED TVs: $5,000 for the 55" and $6,500 for the 65"

LG started shipping the 65″ Signature Wallpaper OLED W in the US recently. The price of LG’s flagship TV is $7,999 (the 77″ will cost $19,999 and will launch later this year). Value Electronics in New York now has one such on display, and the company sent us the following photos and video showing the display in action. We also discussed the installation and quality of the new TV. Robert Zohn from VE says that the TV wall mounts very easily and the connection is done via the low-voltage control cable which is placed inside the wall. The cable is then connected to the I/O box (which LG calls the AIO box). This creates the beautiful look as the TV has no visible connections and is virtually attached on the wall with a very thin profile.

This is a premium OLED-Info article Flexible displays are exciting – giving device makers the freedom of design can potentially unlock new applications and put displays where they haven’t been seen before. Flexible displays, made on plastic substrates, are also thinner, lighter and more durable. Following years of research, in 2013 both Samsung Display and LG Display finally started producing flexible OLEDs on plastic substrates. Since then Samsung has taken the clear lead, but LGD has some ambitious plans of its own. Other display makers are also aiming to start making such panels soon. This article will detail current AMOLED production capabilities, future production plans and market forecasts. Read more about Flexible OLEDs – a market snapshot

OLED-Info’s OLED Marketplace offers what we believe to be the world’s largest OLED catalog. Today we updated the marketplace’s graphics, adding new icons instead of the old photo-based interface. As we keep adding panels to our catalog, we have found the need to create more categories, and we also split graphic OLED displays into “graphic PMOLED” and “graphic AMOLED” displays. This makes it easier to find the displays you need. The OLED Marketplace is a great place to find the OLED you need for your new device!

Reports from Japan suggest that Sumitomo Chemical decided to setup a new factory to produce touch panels for curved AMOLED displays. The new factory will be located in Korea, and the total investment is expected to reach Â¥15 billion ($US 132 million). It is expected to start operating in 2018 and will have an annual capacity of 100 million panels. Digitimes says that Sumitomo has a current market share of about 60-70% of the total AMOLED touch panel market and can currently produce 400 million touch panels for rigid glass-based AMOLEDs. Sumitomo doubled its glass AMOLED touch panel capacity in 2016 following a $165 million investment at its Pyeongtaek factory.
