LG has introduced their 55 inch OLED screen last year at CES, but now they brought it back with an update, introducing 3D. This is the biggest OLED screen so far. This technology so far has been really expensive to introduce into big screens, while it has been used in small screens like in phones with some amazing results. The technology that LG is introducing is based on a proprietary panel, which adds an additional white pixel to the ones that are normally found the red, blue and green pixels. It also includes a color refiner, which will ensure that the colors are consistent all over the screen, not regarding the angle. These two technologies according to LG make the screen production be much cheaper.
This new screen was introduced on IFA. The screen is merely 4mm thick and it has a carbon fiber profile. The overall “thickness” doesn’t allow it to have any connectors, so the TV has its own box of connectors- a base module, which can be conveniently hidden under a shelf or a sliding door and it is connected to it by a transparent optical cable, thus assuring a minimalistic design. The bezel of this screen is almost nonexistent, so the screen goes from one end to the other. Because of its thin design even the speakers had to go somewhere else so, they found their way on the back of the screen. The overall weight of this screen is 7.5kg, which is half of the normal LED TV.
The screen is said to give out one of the most vibrant, clear and best looking pictures amazing all viewers. It has a contrast ratio of 1,000,000,000:1, which is 50 times more than an average LED TV. It has its own TripleXD engine. This TV also includes all of LG’s smart capabilities and it includes a Wi-Fi module and a smart Wii like remote.
All of this as you can imagine doesn’t come cheap, so the price this TV is going to hit the market with is €9000.
