A few weeks ago, LG promised to show us “the future of displays” at IFA. At the presentation the Korean manufacturer reiterated its commitment to OLED and demonstrated a 111-inch Wave OLED, double-sided displays and more.

LG’s future OLED concepts

LG had brought its latest OLED “future concepts” to IFA because the company wanted to show the world that these types of displays are closer than many suspect. LG Display’s CEO, Dr. Sang Beom Han, promised that “OLED will bring revolution to people’s lives”.

The highlight was a 111-inch “Wave” OLED display, which was made from three 65-inch 4K OLED panels. The “Wave” is actually double-sided with full displays on each side. The concept is not intended for living room use as there are two visible black borders at the seams. It is not exactly clear what you can use the display for but LG said that it is a testament to how flexible and versatile OLED technology is.

LG also showcased its incredibly thin and light “wallpaper” OLED, which was unveiled earlier this year. The TV is just 0.97 mm thick and weighs 1.9 kilograms, making it possible to attach it to a wall only by using magnets. LG Display’s CEO said that “it won’t be long before you can buy” this wallpaper TV.

Lastly, LG had brought a flat 55-inch double-sided OLED panel that measured just 5.3 mm in thickness and weighted only 12 kilograms. Apparently a double-sided display is a thing now.

LG recently announced that the company will spend $8.5 billion USD in OLED development and production over the next three years. The company wants to send a clear message to the consumers; it is ramping up OLED TV production now to bring down prices but OLED is capable of much more. Displays like the ones in the photos will be available to buy in the near future; not 10 years from now, much sooner.
