LG Display will be supplying 17-inch foldable notebook OLED panels to Hewlett-Packard (HP) this year, TheElec has learned.

The panel being developed for HP will be 17-inch in size and 11-inch when folded. It is an in-folding panel with a 4K (3840×2160) resolution.

LG Display is planning to begin mass production of the panel during the third quarter. The company is expected to manufacture up to 10,000 units of the panel.

Meanwhile, the company is also collaborating with Apple to develop another foldable OLED panel.

The panel is being designed for tablets and notebooks with ultra-thin glass as the cover window instead of polyimide.
