You may have seen the news and pictures floating around the internet the past few days of the LG 55 inch OLED TV that they plan to show at CES. Now some more information has been released about this ultra-thin beauty. Before you get too excited and start pulling out your wallet, the TV is only a prototype and it will be unveiled at a private, media-only event.
This is the largest OLED TV yet produced. In a blog post to their UK website yesterday LG claimed that, “By incorporating the company’s 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner features with LG Display’s advanced OLED (organic light-emitting diode) panels, LG OLED TV generates the most natural colors of any TV set at a much lower price point than could have been achieved using the standard manufacturing process.”
LG claims that this TV has been produced at a significantly lower cost than past OLED TV’s. They are also claiming an infinite contrast ratio, the utmost clarity and sharpness, and color capabilities that are “technically impossible with LED and LCD display panels”. They also claim the display is 1,000 times faster than traditional LED and LCD displays. The TV will be unveiled at CES on January 9th at 8pm.
