LG Display, LG’s screen production division, announced Thursday that it has developed the world’s largest and most flexible OLED display.

South Korea said in a statement on its website that the new screen comes in 77-inch precision and 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, is transparent with a permeability rate of about 40%, and flexible with a radius of curvature of 80 mm.

LG, who did not disclose the launch date of the new screen commercially, it can be used in various areas, including digital signage, smart offices, information systems and entertainment for cars, as well as virtual aquariums that support the enhanced reality technology.

LG’s transparent and flexible screen development is part of a national program with an investment of 126.2 billion won ($ 110 million). LG Desplay was chosen in 2012 by the government to lead the project, superior to its Samsung Desplay compatriot.

“The completion of this flexible and large-screen display is expected to help expand the new OLED market,” said Kang In-Pyong, Chief Technology Officer, LG Display, at the new screen unveiling event in Seoul, South Korea.

“The development of the screen can expand the use of OLED screens – currently used only in smartphones and televisions – in more diverse areas, including architecture, automobiles and healthcare,” said Lee Ho, vice minister of commerce, industry and energy at the event.

LG Display has developed the world’s first 18-inch flexible OLED display and the world’s first 18-inch transparent screen in 2014, an 18-inch folding screen in 2015, a 55-inch transparent screen with 40% 2016.

Samsung has made transparent screens that offer a 45% penetration rate in 2015, but stopped production in August due to poor marketing capacity.
