Samsung says that 5G networks are expected to increase demand for smartphones in general. In addition, the thin form factor of OLED displays (compared to LCDs) enable smartphone makers to use more space for more sensors and larger batteries - which may be needed to support 5G networks.

The US DOE awards $1 million to develop silver inks to replace ITO in OLED lighting panels

The US Department of Energy (DoE) awarded a $1 million project that aims to replace ITO with a metal-based micro-grid with an aim to improve the performance of OLED lighting panels.

This research project is led by Professor Paul Leu from the University of Pittsburgh and Texas-based Electroninks which provides the silver-based inks. Electroninks’ metal inks can cure at low temperatures, be printed into patterns, and has conductivity comparable to bulk metal. Using a new metal patterning technique that prints the metal grid directly on glass or plastic, it is possible to create micro-grids that can outperform ITO at a lower manufacturing cost.

Xiaomi shows the fold-around Mi Mix Alpha concept smartphone in its HK store

In September 2019 Xiaomi unveiled a new "concept" smartphone, the Mi Mix Alpha, which uses a foldable OLED screen wrapped around the phone. Xiaomi said this phone will be produced in small quantities (with a price tag of around $2,800) and indeed it is now displaying it in its shop in Hong Kong:

The AMOLED display, produced by Visionox, is 7.92" in size with a resolution of 2088x2250 (388 PPI).

LG Electronics shipped over 5 million OLED TVs since launching its first one in 2013

LG Electronics says that it shipped over 5 million OLED TVs since it began offering OLED TVs in 2013. LGE's OLED TV sales are accelerating and it is currently shipping an average of 100,000 OLED TVs each month.

According to earlier reports LGE has asked LGD to provide it with 2.5 million OLED TV panels in 2020. LGE's is the world's leader in OLED TVs, but it is not alone - there are 15 brands that currently offer OLED TVs, including Sony, Panasonic, Philips, Skyworth and Hisense.

Boeing installs OLEDs in its 2019 777 ecoDemonstrator plane

Boeing's ecoDemonstrator is an innovation program that takes promising technologies and tests them in a real aircraft. The company chooses a different airplane each year to test the new technologies.

In 2019 Boeing chose a 777 aircraft, and installed several new technologies with an aim to test enhanced safety, reduced fuel consumption and noise - and also to make for a better passenger experience. In 2019 Boeing installed OLED displays as main displays and also in the ceiling. Boeing may adopt such OLEDs in future aircrafts.

Researchers develop a novel memory device based on an OLED coupled with an MOS capacitor

Researchers from TU Dresden developed a novel memory device that is based on a combination of an OLED emitter and a metal-oxide semiconductor (MOS) capacitor.

The so-called pinMOS device is a non-volatile memory-capacitor with high repeatability and reproducibility. pinMOS devices can store several states, since charges can be added or removed in controllable amounts. This device can also be controlled (read and write) both electrically and optically.
