05/19/2013, LG Display has some beauties to show off at SID (Society for Information Display) 2013, but we will concentrate solely on the curved 55” OLED TV that you see above, in addition to the 5” plastic OLED panel that you can check out in the flesh right after the jump. LG Display certainly intends to maintain its lead in the realm of display technologies, where it will showcase the latest […]
01/29/2013, Just like how there are rumors of Apple looking to move away from Samsung to reduce their dependence of the South Korean company for some of their parts, there are now reports by a South Korean publication who claims that LG Display is looking to move away from Apple in what seems like an ironic twist. As we’re sure some of you guys have heard, Apple’s shares have dropped recently […]
12/26/2012, LG Display has confirmed to Ubergizmo that it will showcase its latest innovations in display technology resolution and design at CES 2013. The company, touted as the world’s largest LCD panel maker, says that it will first showcase what is believed to be the world’s highest resolution 4K2K monitor, together with its line-up of Ultra High Definition TV displays during the said event. Specifically, LG Display is expected to reveal […]
10/17/2012, It was easy to assume that since Apple’s last iOS device went widescreen, we’d see the iPad mini go to a 16:9 form factor as well. However, according to some leaked pics from ETrade Supply, it looks like Apple’s smallest tablet will be sporting the same 4:3 ratio as full-size iPads. The leak also tips the dimensions: the screen is 162mm long and 124mm wide.
10/18/2011, About a week ago we reported that Apple is rumored to be building an iPad mini, which supposedly is meant to go up against Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet that is priced rather competitively at a mere $199. However this seems to go against Steve Job’s statement a year ago when asked about rumors of a 7” tablet, where he was quoted as saying “The reason we [won't] make a 7-inch […]
09/09/2011, A while back the iPad 2 faced shortages due to some production issues with LG Display (LGD). As most of you already know, Samsung, Chimei Innolux and LGD are the primary manufacturers for the displays on the iPad 2, and issues such as failing drop tests and backlight bleeding have caused a disruption in the production cycle, thus causing the entire world to experience long delays in getting their iPad […]
08/22/2011, A while back there were rumors that Apple was planning its very own 55” OLED television while partnered with LG. Well it looks like if you were hoping to get your hands on the rumored television, LG Display’s CEO Kwon Young-Soo has come out and denied those rumors. The reason is because “Apple is still pessimistic about using OLED displays” according to sources who were involved in the matter.
08/10/2011, It wasn’t too long ago when Apple was plagued by iPad 2 shortages which were allegedly caused in part by LG Display, who shipped a batch of faulty displays that apparently caused light leakages. Slowly but surely Apple managed to get things back on track and have recently managed to bring down their estimated shipping time back to 24 hours, but it appears that it might have only been a […]
05/12/2011, LG Display has a spanking new AH-IPS in-plane switching technology that is being shown off over at the SID-2011 in Los Angeles. LG Display’s latest 3.5″ smartphone panel is capable of supporting 960 x 640 pixel resolution at 326 PPI – that is mighty impressive considering what we have in the market currently, making it capable of delivering the most detailed images among smartphones that are already on the market […]
05/05/2011, It seems that the recent iPad 2 shortage issues had the blame squarely laid at LG Display’s doorstep, according to supply sources. LG Display claimed that they had light leakage problems for displays that were manufactured over at its sixth-generation LCD plant, and hence that resulted in shipping a mere 3.2 million iPad LCDs between January and March this year. Samsung is the other party helping to shoulder the workload, […]
11/02/2010, LG Display has grabbed headlines yet again by unveiling their latest 37-inch panel which is touted to feature the narrowest bezel in the world, where it is targeted to see action as a public display. It seems that the gap between the panels measure from a mere 4mm left/right, with a measurement of 2.5mm for the top/bottom segments. In order to show off this new technological achievement, it will be […]
08/19/2010, LG is already the holder of the largest production OLED model in the market today as you can see above, but it is nice to know that the company isn’t content to leave it at that. It seems that next month, the South Korean company will double that size to 31-inches, making it to the showfloor of the IFA electronics in Germany. Bear in mind that this isn’t the first […]
04/22/2010, LG Display knows that OLED is the way to go forward, and has hence thrown their lot by investing $226 million into its OLED production facilities in order to triple output. As at press time, the production line is being built, with a planned activation ready and waiting to occur sometime in Q3 this year, which means the cash infusion will probably bear fruit sometime in the second half of […]
02/23/2010, LG Display is first off the blocks among all the other hardware manufacturers to pick up Microsoft’s Windows 7 Touch Logo certification, thanks to its 13.3″ Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch LCD panel which targets noetbooks. It is different from your ordinary touchscreen products, since touch sensors are built into the display itself, making it useful for notebooks which are used outdoors frequently since light reflection and brightness declines are eliminated from […]
