Sony OLED TVs Get Ten Times Skinnier

Sony OLED TVs Get Ten Times Skinnier

Thin OLED Display

By Evan Ackerman

Super thin display panels are rapidly approaching the point at which they will cease to exist if you look at them sideways, as this minuscule 0.02mm (that’s 0.0079 inch) 320 x 220 OLED panel developed by Sony demonstrates. If you don’t have a metric ruler handy, 0.2mm qualifies as “micro point” when it comes to ballpoint pen tips. If you can handle a 50% increase in thickness, Sony also has produced a 0.3mm, 11″ (960 x 540) prototype, which is ten times thinner than their very, very thin production model OLED TV.

No production plans yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of this stuff in a product or two next year at CES, if not before.

    I think that the main thing about OLED is not the thin TVs but where the screens may be applied.
    When the price comes down, we’ll be seing screens on t-shirts, cereal boxes, newspapers etc. (I think).
    I guess that the brand Cambridge is also working well on this.

    Kind regards,
