OLED screens have been talked about as the next evolution of monitors and TVs for seemingly years. OLED displays exist now, but are typically in smaller sizes, like on smartphones or the PS Vita. Sony has had an 11" OLED HDTV available for a few years, but an 11" HDTV that started north of $2,000 is not something everyone rushes to buy. OLED HDTVs have been shown off in larger sizes, like 32", but nothing has come out of those yet. LG is one of the leading television manufacturers around, and it will be bringing a 55" OLED HDTV to CES 2012, and will hit retail in the middle part of next year. This marks the largest OLED HDTV available and should make for an excellent addition to any home. LG uses white OLEDs overlaid with colors in order to reduce the error rate and provide for even more colors than LCD TVs. The TV itself is only 5mm deep, which is perfect for those wanting the thinnest TV around.
LG claims to have solved the issue plaguing OLED screens in larger sizes, and it will not be long at all before CES attendees can check it out in person. Pricing and availability will be announced later.
