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.
