In the last week or so there has been OLED TV news from both Sony and LG. Sony’s news is not good while LG’s is very good.
Sony announced that they are putting off introducing a larger OLED TV than the current XEL-1. A 27″ model was expected soon from Sony but with the current econnomic situation and losses at Sony, it may take a while longer.
On the other hand, the LG OLED TV news is much better. A 15″ OLED TV will be out shortly.
“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 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.
“We are planning to unveil a 40-inch grade (OLED) product in a not too distant future,” LG quoted an executive as saying.”
