Could LG launch a 55-inch transparent 4K OLED TV in 2023?

LG Display has offered the launch of a transparent OLED TV for consumers to its parent company, LG Electronics, according to a report published in The Electric.

The flat-panel maker has apparently put forward plans for a new TV with a 55-inch transparent OLED display aimed at the home entertainment market. If approved, reports suggest that product development will begin later this year, with a potential release in 2023.

Transparent OLED screen technology has been around for several years, making the rounds in prototypes at trade shows, animating subway windows in Beijing and Shenzhen, and even entering homes – Xiaomi’s Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition is became the first mass production in the world. transparent television last year.

LG already produces seamless OLED signage and has been gradually refining the technology to overcome visibility issues in bright environments. Last year, the company collaborated with smart glass specialist Gauzy on a transparent OLED unveiled at the International Motor Show in Munich, Germany. The transparent OLED display features a surface laminated with Gauzy’s Suspended Particle Device technology, which LG says makes it suitable for changing lighting conditions and brighter environments such as public transport.

When SPD is activated, the screen displays crisp visual content while allowing the viewer to see what is behind the screen. The technology works by dimming the transparent OLED panel to any desired opacity based on the amount of sunlight it detects. In theory, it can block up to 99% of the light that hits the screen, ensuring high contrast, day or night.
