LG Unveils Extremely Thin-and-Light OLED TV

Television is getting less popular nowadays. I guess the main reason behind it is because of the rise of smartphones, laptops, and desktops wherein users tend to prefer than watching TV.


“TV will never be a serious competitor for radio because people must sit and keep their eyes glued on a screen; the average American family hasn’t time for it.” – Author Unknown, from New York Times, 1939

LG Display has unveiled an extremely thin and light OLED display prototype, paving the way for a new generation of super-thin TVs.

The new OLED panel measures 55 inches diagonally, weighs 4.2 pounds and is only 0.97mm (0.04 inches) thick. Best of all — you can simply stick it to a wall with a magnetic mat.

During a media event in Korea last June 2, it was revealed that it is "just" a prototype and there's no actual could be used, according to Yonhap News Agency.

LG Display is apparently being serious about its huge OLED panels. The head of LG Display's OLED Division, Yeo Sang-Deog, said that the company plans to produce more 600,000 OLED Display in the 3rd Quarter this 2015.

"We should be able to supply a satisfactory volume to our clients from July or August, which means we're hoping to buckle down production as well as promotion from the third quarter," Sang-deog told reporters at the event.

LG displayed seven new OLED TV sets at this year's CES in January from 55-inch to 77-inch models.
