LG has confirmed that their next flagship will be the first device to feature an OLED FullVision display. The immersive and expansive viewing experience of FullVision display was first introduced in the LG G6 and Q6 this year. With the introduction of OLED panels, LG aims to bring best-in-class visual experience to mobile space.
In case you’re wondering, it has been 2 years since we last seen the OLED display on LG Flex 2. Since then, LG’s OLED has been exclusively available on their premium televisions series. We are expecting a lot from LG especially with their decision to upgrade their current LCD version of FullVision display to OLED panels.
The OLED FullVision display will sport a QHD+ (1440 x 2880) pixel resolution. As the pixels are self-emitting, the panel is capable of producing perfect black with excellent colour reproduction. And with support for HDR10, we are expecting the display to offer unprecedented viewing experience.
Since the screen used in the upcoming smartphone will be based on plastic OLED (P-OLED), the edges can be curved to allow for a more ergonomic design and better feel in the hand. P-OLED’s creation process involves placing pixels on a plastic substrate which is much stronger than a glass base. What’s more, the display also features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that incorporates shatter-resistant technology. Most importantly, using advanced encapsulation and pixel-scanning technology, the P-OLED in this upcoming device is free from the burn-in issue that plagued past OLED screens. LG’s pixel-scanning technology prevents the oxidation of pixels and lowers the energy requirement. This translates to longer battery life.
While LG has not been explicitly mentioning which phone will be having the new display, but we can safely say that the LG V30 will be the phone that receives the honor. What do you think of LG’s decision to move on to OLED display panels?
