Using an archetypal phosphorescent emitter, we achieve a two-fold increase in operational stability at the same brightness as a reference conventional device while simultaneously extracting 16 per cent of the energy from the plasmon mode as light. Our approach to increasing OLED stability avoids material-specific designs19–22 and is applicable to all commercial OLEDs that are currently used for lighting panels, televisions and mobile displays.

Samsung's Galaxy S21 Ultra features a new low-power OLED display

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 Ultra, it talked about how the device’s screen supports refresh rates of 120Hz at both full HD and Quad HD resolutions. What it didn’t say until now, however, is that the S21 Ultra serves as the debut device for the tech giant’s new low-power OLED display technology. Samsung has revealed that the flagship phone uses OLED display that reduces power consumption by up to 16 percent.

OLEDs don’t need a separate light source unlike other screen technologies — instead, it depends on organic carbon-based material that emits visible light when electricity is applied. Samsung found a way to make electrons flow faster across its OLED’s organic layers, and the company says that allows the display to “create brighter light while consuming less power.”

5G devices typically use more battery than their predecessors. In addition to the modem’s power needs, newer phones’ more advanced components may be power—hungry, as well. People might also use their devices for video streaming more frequently than before, since having a 5G connection could make it easier to watch shows and movies on the go.

Manufacturers can only increase their phones’ battery capacities to a certain extent, so coming up with new ways to make their devices more power efficient is a must. Samsung explains that the display planel is “one of the most important components affecting a smartphone's total power consumption.” That’s why equipping the S21 with a low-power OLED technology can “significantly impact smartphone usage time.”

Thanks Slacker. I know the LTXX meanings, but didn't realize 400hrs was enough (assuming initial standard brightness).

LG Display reports stronger profit on iPhone demand, rising panel prices
4:37am ET, 01/27/2021 - Reuters

* LG Display reports highest quarterly profit since 2017

* Panel shipments for Apple's iPhone rise in Q4

* LCD panel prices increase on stay-at-home TV demand (Adds earnings call comment on domestic LCD business)

By Joyce Lee and Heekyong Yang

SEOUL, Jan 27 (Reuters) - South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd reported its highest quarterly profit in over three years on Wednesday, with help from increased shipments of Apple Inc's new iPhones.

The Apple supplier posted an operating profit of 685 billion won ($622 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with a loss of 422 billion won in the same period a year earlier.

It was the display panel firm's highest quarterly profit since the second quarter of 2017, and soundly ahead of market expectations for a 286 billion won profit, according to a Refinitiv SmartEstimate derived from 12 analyst estimates.

"As the global work-from-home situation continued in the fourth quarter, demand for TV and IT products remained strong," LG Display said in a statement.

Shipments and prices of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels rose for both TVs and smartphones, while the strong earnings were helped by full-scale production at its Guangzhou OLED plant, the company said.

Analysts highlighted increased shipments of OLED panels for Apple Inc's new iPhone 12 and higher prices for liquid-crystal display (LCD) panels. LCD prices rose on the back of growing demand for TVs from global consumers stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apple's iPhone shipments in the fourth quarter were likely up 21% on-year due to the strong performance of the iPhone 12, according to Counterpoint data.

Stronger iPhone sales should spill over into LG Display's first quarter result, analysts said.

"The first half of the year is usually a seasonal down-cycle, but this year is different. It will continue to swing to profit, as iPhone 12 sales are expected to increase panel shipments by 1.5 to two times the amount a year earlier," said Kim Kwang-jin, an analyst at Yuanta Securities Korea.

LCD panel prices should also remain high in the first quarter, he said.

LG Display, which had previously said it planed to halt domestic production of LCD TV panels by 2020, said in an earnings call on Wednesday that it will be flexible on domestic production based on market conditions this year.

A power outage in Nippon Electric Glass' (NEG) Japan-based glass manufacturing facility in December may affect LG Display's first-quarter shipments, as about 80% of its glass came from NEG in the first half of 2020, analysts said.

But the lower supply of large-sized glass could further lift panel prices in the first quarter, offsetting the impact of any fall in shipments, they added.

Revenue rose 16% to 7.5 trillion won, LG Display said in a regulatory filing.

Its shares fell 5% on Wednesday compared with a 0.6% drop in the wider market, which analysts put down to profit-taking. The stock has still gained some 63% since the start of November.

OLED sales look great at LGD, but still not enough to boost capex.

LG Display said, "With a total of more than 140,000 units, including 80,000 units in Paju this year and 60,000 units at the new factory in Guangzhou, we will be able to meet the sales target of 7-8 million units this year." If this is the case, the Guangzhou plant can be supplemented with 90,000 pieces,” he explained.

Regarding CAPEX this year, he said, "It is in the middle of 2 trillion won, which was reduced from the previous year," and said, "We plan to execute within EBITDA (pre-depreciation operating income).

LG Electronics Inc. said Wednesday it has won a prestigious TV technology and engineering award in the United States for its high-end OLED TV as the South Korean tech giant tries to expand its presence in the global TV market.

LG said it has been named one of the recipients at the 72nd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards organized by the US National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS).

The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards honor those who contributed to technical advancements in the industry following a review from a committee of highly qualified engineers.

LG was honored in a category of OLED reference monitors for creative, technical, quality control and client viewing, along with Sony Electronics Corp.

OLED, or organic light-emitting diode, is highlighted by self-illuminating pixels that deliver perfect black, and offers greater design flexibility. LG is the world's top OLED TV maker.

LG said its OLED TV is a popular reference display used by major Hollywood movie studios and that it has been widely selected by content developers.

Last year, the company won the Engineering Excellence Award from the Hollywood Professional Association for its OLED TVs. (Yonhap)

Sorry off topic but market related.
I bought a GameStop Feb 19 , 50 strike put yesterday at 8.75 when the stock was around 130.
At 11:20 am today with the stock at $340 the bid ask for the put is $9.45 x 9.7.
Weird!
