LG Electronics annoucned today its plans to launch a 15-inch TV set using organic display technology next month, the largest commercial model so far.
LG, the world's second-biggest TV brand, said in a statement that it would be unveiling a 15-inch AM-OLED TV at the IFA 2009 consumer electric show in Berlin in September.
The company said it would be unveiling a 15-inch AM-OLED TV at the IFA 2009 consumer electric show in Berlin in September.
The high price of the active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes has kept it from becoming a mass-produced technology in the TV panels. Sony launched the world's first OLED TV in late 2007 but has not followed with new models yet.
LG's TV set would be commercialized in Korea in November and offered overseas next year, it said.
Research firm DisplaySearch expects the market for OLED TV to reach 2.33 million units in 2013 compared with estimated 320,000 units in 2011, according to data provided by LG.
