Transparent OLEDs demoed

See-through screens, anyone?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

When the whole world’s going OLED TV crazy, how can a telly manufacturer differentiate itself? By creating a transparent model, of course.

Unfortunately for LG and Samsung, both firms have the same idea and recently demo'd their respective efforts in the field of see-though OLED displays at an electronics fair in Japan.

In terms of size, LG was the winner. It demoed a 15in transparent OLED screen, compared to a paltry 2in offering from Samsung. Sammy has already shown off a 4.3in version for large handheld devices - the 2in screen is for phones, apparently.

The exact technical details of either set haven't emerged, yet. But a report by Asia-based tech title Tech-On said that both sets have a light transmittance level of 30 per cent.

Samsung rather smaller 2in transparent OLED screen

LG’s set has been designed for use in public places, the report added, while Samsung’s panel supposedly has a 176 x 220p resolution.

You can see a video of the Samsung device here.

It’s unclear if either firm has inked plans to develop transparent OLED TVs for the living room. ®
