Although visually impressive, positive practical applications for such transparent displays remain a relative mystery. Despite this Samsung has reportedly revealed it plans on using such displays in devices later this year.

Having previously demoed 14-inch transparent OLED displays, Samsungs latest LCD offers appear more likely to be put into production with transparent laptops expected to hit stores by the end of 2011 or early into the New Year.
