While this may not be the most flexible OLED display we’ve seen, this new OLED panel from Sony will delivery higher quality images, with enhanced glitch free brightness. The panel is in the form of a 9.9 inch display, which outputs images in a 960×540 resolution, while having a 96% color gamut. It also has a Self-Aligned Top-Gate FTF, which reduces disparities in luminosity.

The manufacturing process is now completed in four parts, which lowers the parasitic capacitance between the gate electrode and the TFT, thus bringing higher quality images compared to other OLED displays. As well as this, Sony have also shortened the TFT’s channel length which will make it easier to use the technology and adapt it for larger screens with higher resolutions.

Sony haven’t provided any release information on this prototype but, hopefully it will be reasonable priced like other OLEDs from Sony.

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.

Sony OLED display

Sony has unveiled an ultra thin flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. The OLED display is a mere 80 ┬Ám (micrometers) thick, which is less than a strand of hair. It measures 4.1 inches and can be rolled around a cylinder. A prototype measuring 2.5 inches had been unveiled as early as May 2007. However it had only a fraction of the flexibility of the newly launched gadget.
