LG to unveil 15-inch OLED TV for sale in November

LG Electronics announced on Sunday it would launch a 15-inch TV using organic display technology next month, the largest commercial model so far.

Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AM-OLED) displays, which use self-glowing materials, have better picture quality, consume less power and are thinner than widely used liquid crystal displays (LCD) that need backlight units.7

First OLED screens are appears into high-end mobile phones, but the only thing that has kept the OLED screens from becoming a  mass-produced technology in the market over cheeper LCD panels is the high price.


Now the LG, the world’s second-biggest TV brand, said in a statement that it would be unveiling a 15-inch AM-OLED TV at the IFA 2009 consumer electric show in Berlin in September.

The TV set would be commercialized in Korea in November and offered overseas next year, it said.

“We are planning to unveil a 40-inch grade (OLED) product in a not too distant future,” LG quoted an executive as saying. (Reporting by Marie-France Han and Rhee So-eui).
