LG Display developed a 12" 100 PPI full-color stretchable microLED display

LG Display demonstrated a 12" 100 PPI (pixel pitch 40 um) full-color stretchable MicroLED display. The display can stretch up to 20% (to create a 14" display).

LGD says that this display can be commercialized soon, as it is highly flexible, durable, and reliable. The new display is produced on a "highly resilient film-type substrate made of special silicon used in contact lenses".

LGD says that it is the world's first full-color high-resolution stretchable display that was ever produced. Last year Royole demonstrated a small 120 PPI stretchable microLED display, but that seemed to be an early prototype. Samsung Display have been showing several stretchable OLED display prototypes, including a 13-inch "high resolution" one in 2021.

This stretchable display is the result of a large-scale national R&D project that LGD was selected to lead by South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) back in 2020.
