LG claims OLED TV screen is thinner, lighter and biggest


LG Display said yesterday it has developed a 55-inch display panel for TVs using OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes, in a rush to beat rivals to make next-generation displays.

The company, which competes with Samsung Electronics, claimed the latest panel is the world’s largest TV display using OLEDs.

LG Display said that the new OLED panel is thinner than a pen and weighs one third as much as an LCD panel of the same size.

Industry sources said earlier this week that LG and Samsung both expect to begin sales of 55-inch TVs using OLEDs sometime in 2012, after first showcasing the products at a consumer electronics show next month.

The company plans to introduce the large-size OLED TV panels in Las Vegas next month.

“The large OLED TVs are expected to be rolled out in the next two or three years,” said LG Display’s newly appointed president, Han Sang-beom. “We developed this product to move ahead of our rivals,” he said.
