Consumer models expected by Q3
Samsung has previewed a transparent display, the 22-inch BLU LCD TV, at the ongoing Society for Information Display conference. The television utilizes a transparent panel that is capable of operating without a backlight. The company showed the display in front of several plants, which can be seen through the LCD panel.
The transparent displays are expected to be aimed at commercial customers for advertising purposes, however consumer models are said to be on track to launch in the third quarter of the year. The company has yet to announce pricing information or further details. [via Engadget]
