A bigger OLED TV is coming

July 19, 2009|Times Staff And Wire Reports

In January 2008, Sony introduced the first commercial OLED TV with a near-paper-thin display and jaw-dropping picture quality. Two problems: The screen was only 11 inches (measured diagonally) and the price was $2,500.

It was the perfect paperweight for an executive making too much money.

Finally, Sony could be getting some competition in organic light-emitting diode technology, but the details are sketchy.

An executive with LG Display, Won Kim, said in an interview with OLED-Info.com that the company would have an OLED TV on the market by January 2010, in South Korea first and then globally.

It will be a whopping 15 inches in screen size. No price was given. If it's like the prototype that LG showed at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, the screen will be just over 0.3 inches thick.
