55″ OLED TVs Coming In 2012

According to smarthouse.com.au, both LG and Samsung plan to introduce 55″ OLED TVs in time for the Summer Olympics in London next year.

LG had originally planned to release their 55″ LG OLED TV later in 2012 but with the potential introduction of the Samsung 55″ OLED TV LG has moved their planned date ahead to compete with Samsung.

There was a previous LG OLED TV available in a 15″ screen size, but low production numbers and a high price made it a scarce item, rather like the first Sony OLED TV. However, LG has said that the 55″ model will be available in limited numbers and industry watchers expect a fairly high price for these first decent sized OLED televisions.

Samsung has so far not produced any consumer model OLED TVs and it’s interesting to see a 55″ screen size as potentially their first model released to the public. More details from both manufacturers are expected at CES 2012 in Las Vegas in January.
