We first saw LG’s 55-inch OLED 3D TV as CES and with the company’s promise of a down-to-earth price for the largest OLED TV yet, our interest peaked. We’ve been waiting for alternative technologies to really challenge LCD and Plasma TVs, and while OLED panels hold a lot of promise, we’ve only seen extremely expensive and small-screened OLED TVs.
The company wasn’t forthcoming on too many details on the set. We know that the 55-inch LG OLED TV uses 4-color pixel technology (RGBW) for more natural colors and that it’s super thin and light at just 4mm thick and weighing 7.5kg (16.5lbs). Initial information point to a fourth quarter release at a yet undetermined price.
