55-inch wallpaper OLED panel, presented as one of the company’s future displays at a media event, is only 0.97 mm thick, weighs 1.9 kg [4.2 pounds] and can easily be stuck to a wall with a magnetic mat, or removed from it.
The new product is far slimmer compared with LG Display’s existing flagship 55-inch OLED panel that is 4.3 mm thick
LG Display retained this year’s sales target for OLED panels at 600,000 units and 1.5 million units for 2016. Yeo cited the improvement in yields for OLED panels as a key factor that will help achieve such a sales target.
“It has taken a year and half for us to raise the yield to this level (for OLEDs), while it’d taken nearly 10 years to achieve the yield for LCDs,” he said.
LG Display will keep its focus on large screens, with a plan to introduce an OLED panel as big as 99 inches within this year, the executive said. The company has released its 55-inch, 66-inch and 77-inch OLED models earlier in the year.
It will also continue to upgrade its plastic OLED technology in the small- to mid-sized segments, such as transparent displays and rollable and flexible displays to be used for wearable devices or vehicle dashboards
