40" Samsung OLED at CES

Samsung will soon be displaying the world's largest OLED TV to the public, the company has announced. At next month's Consumer Electronics Show, scheduled from January 7th to the 10th, Samsung will be displaying a 40-inch OLED set (not pictured), several times larger than Sony's flagship XEL-1, which is due to ship to the US within the next few months. OLEDs appear likely to replace LCD and plasma screens in the 2010s, due to several factors: they are first of all able to operate without a backlight, not only allowing true blacks, but also consuming less electricity.

OLEDs can also be built thinner than LCD panels; the obstacle to widespread adoption of the technology, however, has been difficulty in building panels large enough to be attractive to the public, while still keeping costs at a reasonable level. Samsung has not published any dates or prices for a commercial OLED set. [via Pocket-lint]
