55" LG OLED TVThe latest LG OLED TV, the world’s largest at 55″ will be unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. LG Display has apparently discovered a less expensive way of producing OLED display panels. Previous OLED TV displays used Low Temperature Poly Silicon (LTPS), which uses amorphous silicon. The LG 55-inch TV is using a technology called Oxide Thin Film Transistor (TFT). LG stated that the Oxide TFT produces the same image quality of high performance LTPS but at a greatly reduced cost.

According to the press release, “The LG Display’s 55-inch OLED TV panel produces high image quality with no after image due to its high reaction velocity, as well as high contrast ratio of over 100,000:1 and wider colour gamut than that produced by LCD panels. LG Display uses White OLED (WOLED). WOLED vertically accumulates red, green, and blue diodes. With white colour light emitting from the diode, it displays screen information through colour layers below the TFT base panel. This leads to a lower error rate, higher productivity, and a clearer Ultra Definition screen via the benefits of small pixels.”

The LG OLED TV at 55″ is a major breakthrough in OLED TV technology and at only 5mm thick, will be a stunning piece of equipment. Make sure to check back in here during CES 2012 from January 10th to the 13th to get the latest LG OLED TV specs, videos, availability and pricing.

 

According to smarthouse.com.au, both LG and Samsung plan to introduce 55″ OLED TVs in time for the Summer Olympics in London next year.

LG had originally planned to release their 55″ LG OLED TV later in 2012 but with the potential introduction of the Samsung 55″ OLED TV LG has moved their planned date ahead to compete with Samsung.

There was a previous LG OLED TV available in a 15″ screen size, but low production numbers and a high price made it a scarce item, rather like the first Sony OLED TV. However, LG has said that the 55″ model will be available in limited numbers and industry watchers expect a fairly high price for these first decent sized OLED televisions.

Samsung has so far not produced any consumer model OLED TVs and it’s interesting to see a 55″ screen size as potentially their first model released to the public. More details from both manufacturers are expected at CES 2012 in Las Vegas in January.

 

 

Here’s perhaps the only chance for those outside the U.K. and Europe to get their hands on an LG 15EL9500 15″ OLED TV.  5 of them are now available on eBay. The perfect gift for that special someone at $3099.

Of course if you rush out and buy one the FTC wants me to remind you that I may earn a commission for pushing them like this!

 

Here’s a great video clip of the new 31″ LG 3D OLED TV. Rumors have it that this set will be released in the UK in March 2011 for around the equivalent of about $9,000.
