Early this month notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published an investor note that claimed Apple was at work on a new lower cost MacBook Air. Analyst Jim Hsiao has now published research that says Apple will ship a large number of the new entry-level notebooks this year, but they won't be lower cost. Hsiao says that Apple will move 4 million units of the new MacBook Air in 2018. While Kuo didn’t offer any pricing details in his previous note, Hsiao believes that the new MacBook Air will sell for the same price as the current entry-level Air, or perhaps even a bit more. This means we are looking at a refreshed entry-level machine, not necessarily a lower cost notebook. The price remaining... Read more...
LG Display has revealed one of the coolest things seen out of CES 2018 so far. The company a new prototype OLED display that measures 65-inches and rolls into its own rectangular storage bin when not in use. It looks like the love child of a retractable home theater projector screen and a high-tech OLED TV. LG Display isn’t really offering up anything in the form of actual technical details on this screen, other than the fact that it has a 4K UHD display resolution. LG is showing off some interesting hardware bits at CES 2018, including an updated version of the Crystal Sound technology that puts speakers directly inside the screen of the TV. Some of the other cool stuff that LG has at... Read more...
LG has announced that it will have a gigantic 8K display on hand at CES 2018 and the display will be a world's first. The 88-inch 8K OLED display will be on hand at the LG booth and shows what we might have in our living room years down the road when 8K content is readily available. The native resolution of the gigantic display is 7680 x 4320 giving it 16 times more resolution than full HD (1920 x 1080). Most people are just now adopting 4K TVs that pack a resolution of 3840 x 2160.  LG Display says that this massive screen is part of its commitment to lead the high-end premium TV market, and notes that this product reaches the 8K resolution without having to compromise in...

Google is allegedly making a big power play in the smartphone display market with a nearly $1 billion investment into a key supplier. According to a new report hailing from South Korea, Google will invest $875 million into LG Display in an effort to ensure that it has a steady stream of screens for its future Pixel Android flagships. The search giant will reportedly rely on LG Display to produce curved panels, which are all the rage with the latest flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ both use curved OLED display, and the upcoming iPhone 8 is also expected to use a curved OLED display — a first for the iPhone family. According to the report, the strategic partnership with LG Display... Read more...
Notebook screens will be getting even slimmer, thanks to a touch screen technology from LG Display. The Advanced In-Cell (AIT) panels have already appeared on the LG G4 and other smartphones, but this is the first time that the technology will be used on larger devices like notebooks. AIT shaves as much as a millimeter off the thickness of an ordinary notebook screen. That may not sound like much of a difference, but notebook sizes and weights have become factors in many buyers’ purchasing decisions, so competition among manufacturers has been focused on those areas. AIT hits both size and weight for notebooks – it can reduce a 15.6-inch notebook’s weight by as much as 200 grams (7.05 ounces),... Read more...
Is this an April Fools joke, a simple error on its part, or a massive, high-profile leak from one of Apple’s largest suppliers? We may never know, but LG Display last week issued a press release announcing its next generation of high-resolution 8K display panels. While the arrival of 8K displays is headline-grabbing in its own right, what makes this reveal so intriguing is the fact that LG managed to slip this peculiar sentence into its press release: “Apple has also announced that they will release the ‘iMac 8K’ with a super-high resolution display later this year.”LG's 8K scale (Source: LG)8K scaling courtesy Wikipedia (Source: Wikimedia Commons) For starters, Apple hasn’t announced anything...

Massive displays are everywhere you look at the Consumer Electronics Show, but I found that some of the most interesting displays at CES 2015 are small: LG Display has some slick new technology for smartphones and a prototype for car dashboards that we hope will be showing up in cars soon. Touch-sensitive sides put icons and sliders in easy reach on this LG Display phone. A smartphone with curved edges struck me as unnecessary and unwieldy – until I got a chance to check out LG Display’s 6-inch smartphone with an “active bending” plastic OLED display. Notifications, including text message, can slide up the side of the phone and are surprisingly easy to ready as they pass by. The edges can also... Read more...
LG has officially begun the process of mass producing the world's first plastic electronic paper display (EPD) that is designed to be used in eBooks. LG's EPD measures 6 inches and offers a resolution of 1024x768. This display offers a paper-like reading experience on a plastic substrate that is as slim as cell phone protection film. The film is flexible and can be bent at a range of 40 degrees from the center of the screen. LG Display's plastic EPD is just 0.7mm thick, which is 1/3 slimmer than current glass EPDs. It weighs 14g, or about 0.49 ounces. LG Display Begins Mass Production of World's First Plastic E-Paper Display With advancements in functionality and design, Plastic EPD to revolutionize...

CES 2012 is but days away at this point, and it's obvious that companies are eager to grab as much of that spotlight as possible. Take LG Display here, who is pre-announcing the world's largest OLED TV panel -- a 55" beast that'll be shown off in Las Vegas. According to the company, this panel is a significant step forward in the popularization of OLED TVs and demonstrates the effective application of AM OLED technology to larger panel sizes at a more cost efficient level. "Our objective has always been to actively define and lead emerging display technology markets," said Dr. Sang Beom Han, CEO and Executive Vice President of LG Display. "Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV... Read more...
Are bezel wars the next great war in HDTVs? First it was flat-screen. Then it was the race to HD. Then it was 3D. Now... bezel size? Truth be told, bezel size has been important to both companies and discerning consumers alike for some time now, and LG Display is hoping to capitalize on the demand with a new 55" panel. It's said to have the planet's narrowest bezel for a public display, with just a 5.3mm gap between individual panels when displayed alongside each other. In other words, picking up four of these would create perhaps the most intense, amazing Halo 3 experience ever in your home cinema. It's a 1080p screen with 800 nits of brightness, and it uses Local Dimming Technology which is... Read more...
Size matters, sure, but so does power efficiency. It's becoming an increasingly important thing this day and age, with power constraints becoming all the more evident and efficiency numbers becoming just as important as diagonal inches, resolution specifications or asking price. LG Display is taking note, and this week they're unveiling a set that they're calling the world's most energy efficient. The company's 47" HD LCD panel offers up vertical single side LED backlight technology, which promises maximum brightness while consuming less electricity than other LCD TV panels over 40 inches in size and even normal PC monitors over 20 inches in size. The newly developed LCD panel achieves the world’s... Read more...
LG Display and iRiver today announced a $5 million joint venture to develop an ebook reader. Under terms of the agreement, the two companies will establish a new company tasked with OEM development, production, and sales of the new device, which will then be sold to electronics customers who are free to slap on their own label. "The joint venture is significant in that iRiver has now secured the foundation to produce more stable and competitive products," said Mr. Jae Woo Lee, CEO of iRiver. "Once our mutual technical and manufacturing abilities start producing synergies, I am confident that our joint venture will grow into a leading global producer of e-books." As the agreement goes, LG Display... Read more...
Each and every time that we think the e-ink and e-reader market has reached its temporary peak, we're reminded yet again exactly what "temporary" means. LG Display, a giant in the monitor and HDTV arena, has just signed a cross-licensing agreement with Taiwan's Prime View International Co., and it'll be buying up $30.5 million worth of that company's bonds. Why? In order to "tap into the fast-growing electronic paper market."Surprised? You shouldn't be.  The display market has been squeezed for years, and with thinning profit margins in the LCD monitor and television segments, there's no better place to be than a blossoming market in which competition is still scant and consumers are willing...

Out with the rumors, in with reality. LG Display has just announced that it will be grabbing this whole 3D revolution by the horns, and if you have any doubts, we'd say that its intentions to produce the world's first commercial launch of a 3D LCD panel with a Full HD resolution should be them to rest. In the past, we've seen both 3D HDTVs and monitors that support 1080p, but rarely have the two smashed together outside of a trade show floor. In other words, the technology was there, but no major TV maker has figured out a cost-effective way to bring 1080p 3D LCD screens to the mass market. Until LG Display, obviously.The company's first to fit the aforementioned description will be a 23" display... Read more...
