LG unveils world’s largest OLED TV, 55-inches of pure sexy that’s only 4mm thick


We’re fast approaching the Consumer Electronics Show – the premier electronics show that gives us a taste of what gadgets are coming later in the year, and it seems like LG wants to steal the limelight even before the convention doors officially open in Las Vegas. The Korean company has just unveiled their 55-inch OLED TV, which is currently the largest of its kin, ahead of the official start of the convention. It’s also possibly the worlds thinnest, and is only a mere 4mm(!) thick.

“Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace.”

Aside from being impossibly thin, the whole TV only weighs in at 7.5 kg. Samsung, ball’s in your court, we guess?
