The newest organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are bigger, transparent, and able to emit purer white light.
OLED Displays are very thin and render colors more vividly than other technologies. They also have a nearly 180° viewing angle and refresh nearly 1,000 times as fast as liquid-crystal displays. But they’re tricky to make in large sizes. The largest OLED TV to reach market has a screen measuring 15 diagonal inches–beating an 11-inch model offered by Sony–and is just three millimeters thick.
