LG unveils high-res stretchable display
LG Display has debuted a 12-in high-resolution stretchable display equipped with free-form technology that enables it to be extended, folded, and twisted without distortion or damage.

The company’s newly unveiled Stretchable display is the industry’s first to achieve 20 percent stretchability, a resolution of 100ppi, and full-colour RGB. In addition, its high flexibility, durability, and reliability maximize its potential for commercialisation.

Based on a highly resilient film-type substrate made of special silicon used in contact lenses, this 12-in display features a rubber band-like flexibility that allows it to be stretched up to 14-in.

In addition, the Stretchable display uses a micro-LED light source with a pixel pitch of less than 40μm, securing a level of durability to withstand significant external impacts as well as a resolution that competes with most existing monitors. Unlike the conventional linear wired system, the Stretchable display’s flexible S-form spring wired system’s optimal structure can endure repetitive changes to its form.

Alongside its thin, lightweight design, the Stretchable display’s technology offers versatility for various daily scenarios. It can be attached to curved surfaces such as skin, clothing, furniture, automobiles and aircraft.

LG Display’s Stretchable display is the result of a large-scale national R&D project the company was selected to lead by South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) back in 2020.
