The flexible display has 1,200×810 resolution and can be rolled around a 60mm cylinder while working – made possible in part by using a polyimide film substrate and organic thin-film transistors.

“This proves that LG Display can bring rollable TVs of more than 50inch to the market in the future,” said the firm.

By 2017 the firm believes it will have an “Ultra HD” flexible and transparent OLED panel of over 60inch with more than 40% transmittance and a minimum curve diameter of 200mm.
