CMEL shows 25-inch OLED

At the FPD International exhibition in Japan on Wednesday, Taiwan-based Chi Mei EL (CMEL) demonstrated a 25-inch Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display that is less than 0.04 inches thick (under one millimeter) thick, according to a report. It was the largest such display at the show, sporting specs that include 1366x768 resolution and the ability to display 16.7 million colors.

While still a prototype, the screen is nevertheless more than twice the size of a Sony prototype at the same convention, which is similar in thickness but only measures 11 inches diagonally. Sony does, however, already sell a complete OLED TV, the XEL-11 albeit with an older-generation, thicker display. This remains is the largest commercially available OLED display to date, as smaller versions are used in personal electronics such as cellphones.

Like the older Sony display, Chi Mei EL's previous prototype was about 0.12 inches (3mm) thick. [image via DigiTimes]
