LG is traveling to CES 2023 with several innovations, including new OLED TVs or a smartphone camera module with real optical zoom. LG Display, on the other hand, will showcase new and innovative OLED display technologies at the show.
LG Display showcases new innovative OLED technologies
LG Display will have two booths at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and will showcase innovative new OLED technologies on-site at CES 2023. New products include small to mid-sized OLED and automotive display solutions, including foldable OLED displays.
The 17-inch foldable OLED display optimizes the use of a laptop in different environments by folding in half and transforming into a tablet or portable monitor as desired. When folded, almost no crease should be visible, the manufacturer promises.
The screen is also equipped with the company’s touchscreen solutions. This allows it to be operated with the help of a stylus or fingers.
Foldable 360-OLED screen in both directions
LG Display’s 8-inch 360-degree OLED screen allows a device to fold in both directions. The structure of the module guarantees long life even when folded more than 200,000 times. In the process, a novel folding mechanism is said to minimize wrinkling along the folding point (the so-called “hinge”).
New automotive displays
“LG Display aims to expand its automotive display business as a strong future growth driver and an important contributor to the order-to-order business,” the manufacturer said.
The company will introduce a wide range of automotive displays featuring key proprietary technologies such as P-OLED and LTPS (low-temperature polycrystalline silicon) LCD. This allows for larger and higher resolution displays, which should enable new and particularly practical designs.
LG Display’s 34-inch P-OLED display, the world’s largest P-OLED display for automobiles, features an ergonomic structure that allows drivers to have a clear view of the dashboard and navigation system at the same time.
On-site at the show, the manufacturer will also showcase the novel 12.8-inch “Center Fascia” control pad. The company’s LTPS LCD-based head-up display (HUD) offers brightness of up to 5,000 nits and premium image quality.
On top of that, there’s a 3D display panel that’s supposed to allow three-dimensional viewing without you having to wear special glasses.
Thin Actuator Sound Solution
At CES, LG Display will also introduce its Thin Actuator Sound Solution, an innovative technology for a new infotainment experience. This film-like exciter technology allows LG Display to vibrate on display panels or interior materials to create a more intense, immersive sound experience. For this, the manufacturer received the CES 2023 Innovation Award (category “In-Vehicle Entertainment & Safety”).
At the same time, the Thin Actuator Sound Solution is just the size of a passport (150 mm x 90 mm) and is only 2.5 mm thick, weighing just 40 grams. This makes it 70 percent lighter and 90 percent thinner than conventional car speakers.
Thanks to its compact size and advanced form factor, the Thin Actuator Sound Solution can be installed in a variety of locations in the vehicle interior, including the headliner, pillar, dashboard or headrest.
The lighter weight of the speaker enables greater energy efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. In addition, the product does not contain environmentally harmful materials such as neodymium, an essential component in most conventional speakers.

New OLED TVs and monitors
In the North Hall, LG Display will unveil its third-generation OLED TV panel, which achieves the highest image resolution to date by applying “meta technology.” Among them is a 97-inch OLED TV, which will be showcased alongside 77-, 65-, 45-, 42- and 27-inch OLED TV panels, down to the ultra-small 0.42-inch OLEDoS.
OLED Glow is a 27-inch OLED concept that is not only height and tilt adjustable, but also features convenient touch technology. The BeFit Trolly combines a mobile storage frame with a 48-inch OLED panel with CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) technology, which generates sound directly from the display without the need for additional speakers, maximizing functionality, mobility, comfort and room design.
Specifically targeting gamers, the 45-inch OLED Ultrawide and 27-inch OLED displays are said to score with fast response times. In addition, LG Display’s groundbreaking Bendable Display technology ensures that the gaming OLEDs can be bent by up to 800R. A first model was already shown at the IFA 2022.
LG Display’s gaming OLED panels are scheduled to go into mass production as early as January 2023 and will be used in premium gaming monitors from various manufacturers like LG Electronics, Asus and Corsair, such as the Corsair XENEON FLEX.
