LG recently announced new display technologies, that would change the game on the electronic paper market. LG Display is handling development and getting ready to launch a 9.7 inch color e-paper display and a 19 inch e-paper screen, that will reach the market soon.
Electronic paper has the advantage of low power consumption, as it only uses the battery when the display suffers from an action, like a page flip. Amazon Kindle relies on such a technology, although its screen is not color, yet. Apparently, color e-paper has been around before E-ink, but it failed to deliver, quality-wise.
Till now, LG has shown off a 14 inch A4 size color, with support for 16.7 million colors. We must mention that LG also makes color LCD screens, like the 9.7 inch IPS iPad display, while its future plans include a flexible 19 inch monochrome e-ink display.
