If you’re a gadget enthusiast like us then the term OLED would be nothing new to you, and in fact it has been thrown around by certain TV brands for a number of years with no real products brought to market other than small TV sizes, although this has all changed recently. The most impressive and recent television featuring this technology is LG’s new 55-inch OLED TV that will release in 2012.
Every brand has a World’s something – LG are stating that this new 55-inch television is the “World’s Largest and Slimmest OLED TV“, and the product was launched with 400 VIPs watching in Monaco. While we have not personally enjoyed the LG TVs we’ve tested in the past, having seen first hand some of their latest technology it seems display quality has really jumped up a notch. The new 55-inch OLED TV shows how far LG has come and we’re extremely impressed.
This 55-inch OLED TV features WRGB technology that has been developed, redefined, and researched for years at LG, and the real difference for OLED when compared to LCD and LED is the backlight, which OLEDs eliminate the need for backlight thanks to generating their own light. You can read the full details and technical advancements in the press release here on LG, which also features a number of photos from the event that include F1 champion Sebastian Vettel.
We’ve also included a video below that has been uploaded to YouTube within the last 24 hours, and includes a hands-on at the LG 55-inch OLED TV event in Monaco, an interview with F1′s David Coulthard and LG UK’s George Mead.
Are you looking forward to owning a large screen OLED TV soon?
