LG unveils 55-inch OLED TV screen as world's largest

LG 55in OLED screen uses white OLED tech

LG Display gave a teaser of its CES plans by setting a record for the world's largest OLED (organic light-emitting diode) TV screen. The 55-inch panel uses an oxide thin-film transistor instead of the usual low-temperature polysilicon from smaller OLED screens. Making the switch lets LG keep the costs down and make the much larger screen without necessarily hiking the price.

The screen is advanced in other areas. LG claims an "Ultra Definition" panel and is using white OLED, which is both clearer and more efficient than on most such displays.

Some of the more common OLED benefits are in place, including a 5mm (0.2in) thick screen with a very narrow bezel. The design is both much lighter than an LCD and allows for unique designs.

LG hasn't given hints as to if and when the 55-inch OLED screen will make it to shipping products. The media will be seeing the TV behind closed doors at CES in mid-January.

    By far the best OLED TV

    This is by far the best OLED TV ever made. Samsung and Sony have much to learn from LG. Sony's OLED release in 2007 was painful to watch and even though Samsung had OLED tech as early as 2003, they failed to produce a decent panel until now. Unfortunately, Samsung is scrapping their RGB method and utilizing the White OLED technology, the same one LG uses. This will of course delay their OLED release in 2012 by another few months.
