LG's 55 inch OLED HDTV

LG’s 55 inch OLED HDTV released in korea



originally debuting at the 2012 CES in las vegas, south korean LG electronics has announced that it will begin accepting pre-orders for its 55-inch WRGB OLED TV this month with deliveries scheduled to begin in february 2013. 


measuring only 4 millimeters (0.16 inches) in thickness and weighing less than 10 kilograms (22 pounds), the eco-friendly OLED TVs produce vivid and realistic pictures using WRGB technology and LG’s unique four-color pixel system which features a white sub-pixel, working in conjunction with the conventional red, blue, green setup to create the perfect color output. the 55-inch screen also offers an infinite contrast ratio, which maintains optimal contrast levels regardless of ambient brightness or viewing angle.
