LG patent reveals transparent display

Since Samsung's foldable tablets might launch next year, it is no surprise that LG is working on transparent and foldable touchscreen displays as well.

Although not widely spread, the curved touchscreen display is now a technology that has moved from the concept stage to mass production. Next in line are flexible/foldable and transparent displays, with LG coming close after Samsung. A recent patent shows that the company behind the first modular flagship is now working on a foldable and transparent touchscreen display.

Transparent touchscreens are not something new since references to this technology were spotted online back in 2013 (Samsung), but the Aston Martin concept phone Mobiado CPT002 made it surfaced even earlier, in 2011. LG's patent shows a foldable transparent display that apparently can be used on both sides. The hardware will probably be located in a wirelessly connected case or even at the edge of the transparent flexible display.

Unfortunately, it looks like the next-gen LG G flagship will not be the first device to feature a foldable transparent display, but this technology might hit the market earlier than most would expect.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
