LG is one of the biggest tech companies in the world. This company manufactures all sorts of stuff, including PC monitors, TVs, microwaves, refrigerators, smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, smartphone components, etc. LG is somewhat similar to Samsung in this regard, not only are the two companies both based in South Korea, but they both manufacture tons of products and develop their own internals as well. Speaking of which, you've probably heard of LG Display, one part of LG Electronics which handles display development. Well, we have some new information regarding LG and their OLED and LCD panels, read on.
The company has promised technical cooperation to their partners in regard to LG's OLED panels. "LG Display has been able to write the history of OLED with the world's first technology, thanks to the valuable efforts and active cooperation of our partner companies. I hope that we will continue to change and grow, so that we can lead the display market in the future as well, based on each company's R&D competitiveness and creativity," said Han Sang-beom, CEO and President of LG Display during LG Display Tech Forum titled "New Opportunities and Challenges in OLED."
Interesting enough, representatives of 13 of LG's partner companies attended the forum, and LG promised to share information on market trends and the direction of development when it comes to their LCD and OLED panels. LG Display has also created the 'Technology Innovation Award', and awarded Asahi Glass, Merck and Nitto Denko Corp. for playing their part in improving the performance of LG Display's products and helping the company move forward.
