LG Electronics announced that it will launch world’s largest OLED TV next month. Sony already launched an OLED TV in late 2007 and it is Sony XEL-1 OLED TV, which is the only OLED TV model they introduced. Now LG entered the OLED family, and produced 15-inch OLED TV, the world’s largest so far.
Active-matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode(AM-OLED) displays are self glowing materials, have better picture quality, consume less power and thinner than Liquid Crystal Displays(LCD). But high price is the problem for its mass production, some high end mobile phones are already using OLED displays, but not used in PCs and TVs.
But LG’s new OLED TV may be results to a coming domination of OLED over LCDs. The TV set would be commercialized in Korea in November and offered overseas next year and LG expects the market for OLED TV to reach 2.33 million units in 2013. An LG executive also said that they are planning to unveil a 40-inch grade (OLED) product in a not too distant future.
