LG Display Begins Mass Production of Tandem OLED for Laptops

LG Display has commenced mass production of the industry’s first 13-inch Tandem OLED panel for laptops. Tandem OLED technology was originally designed to meet the demanding requirements of automotive displays, which need high luminance (800-1,000 nits) for visibility and a long lifespan (maintaining 80% of initial luminance after 10,000 hours). Tandem OLED achieves these goals by adding an extra organic light-emitting layer, increasing both light-emitting efficiency and lifespan compared to single-layer OLED structures. LGD claims Tandem OLED panels that are 40% thinner and 28% lighter than existing OLED screens.

The new 13-inch panel boasts a WQXGA+ (2880×1800) high resolution, accurate color expression meeting 100% of the DCI-P3 standard, and an infinite contrast ratio. It is certified as Display HDR True Black 500 by VESA. It also has an embedded touch sensor enhances touch performance, providing a precise touch experience.

Apple introduced the Tandem OLED screen in the new iPad Pro models claiming it can achieve 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness for both SDR and HDR content, and 1,600 nits of peak HDR brightness.
