SEL have developed a range of flexible OLED displays and high PPI LCD panels which use CAAC oxide semiconductors.
"CAAC stands for C-Axis Aligned Crystal. In this material's structure, the crystals are aligned in the c-axis direction. Because CAAC itself is crystalline instead of amorphous, it has much higher reliability. Until now, with oxide semiconductors, reliability was generally thought to be a problem, but using this material solves that problem."

Following the success of Nexus 4, LG and Google have partnered again to deliver the first smartphone featuring the latest Android operating system, Android™ 4.4, KitKat. Packed with new features, Nexus 5 is the slimmest and fastest Google Nexus phone to date.
This week it’s wrapping displays that just keep going around the edge of your phone, and a Japanese man, Takaaki Sasaki, the first in line at Tokyo’s Ginza Apple store, was all weepy today when he got the new iPad Air - but it’s not the usual creepily overenthusiastic fandorkboyism, it’s actually kind of touching.
