Sony seem to be busy with the OLED scene lately. We recently saw the rollable OLED panel from the company and have in the past, seen 11 inch TVs from Sony, which made use of the OLED technology. We’re still awaiting a larger screen but, we’re getting there. This time the OLED panel measures 11.7 inches, an improvement over the XEL-1.

As well as improving the size of the panel, Sony have managed to improve the lifespan of the display, which is described as one of the many challenges facing mass commercialization of the OLED displays. With the size being the biggest challenge. The OLED display has an estimated life of more than 10 years according to Sony. The resolution of the display is 960×520. Hopefully we’ll see this technology appearing on more devices in the future, with laptops being the perfect starting point, or even a 10 inch netbook.
