LG Display has shown off its 77-inch transparent flexible OLED display for the first time.

The Ultra High Definition (3840x2160) resolution display, which was successfully developed last June, has 40 percent transmittance and 80R curvature, or can be curved into a circle with an 80mm radius.

The display is being shown at the Society for Information Display (SID) Display Week 2018 tradeshow at Los Angeles Convention Center.

LG Display also showed off 55-inch and 65-inch UHD Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) displays, which emit sound by themselves directly from the panel. The technology was first shown off at CES earlier this year.

The firm has also showed off Quad HD displays 12.3-inches and 16.2-inches in size for automobiles, for the cluster and passenger seat respectively. Another 14.3-inch centre information display has embedded touch support.

LG is leading the charge in OLED innovation, especially in flexible displays.

It showed off a 65-inch 'rollable' OLED display at CES earlier this year. It also showed off an 88-inch, 8K OLED display.

The company is also expanding in automobiles. It launched an OLED lighting brand for cars last December.
