LG's Eye-Poppin' OLED TV Is Amazingly Thin

LG has its own take on the future of HD beauty, and it certainly promises to be just that: 55 inches of 3D OLED glory slathered across a teensy-thin display.

We know that LG's previous claim of "world's largest" won't hold up anymore — Samsung's also kicking out a 55-inch OLED amazon — but LG has Sammy beat on dimensions. If svelteness is a virtue to you, close your eyes and smile at the OLED's 0.19-inch waist size (Samsung's offering is 0.3 inches). Not a profound difference, but holy damn this thing will be crisp and beautiful, both in form and picture. We'll let you know how it shines in person when we put our eyes on it — along with pricing and availability info. Expect the former to be quite steep.

Eyes On: OLED is no joke. Acronyms are often hype, but damn does this set look killer. The wafer-thin screen is terrifically bright, small details pop and colours are gorgeous, making the rest of the panels on display already look like old tech.

    I said it 2 years ago when I bought my LED backlit LCD- OLED will make LCD look like CRT.....bring on the Anagrams!

      Did you mean acronyms?

        I think he meant "nag a ram"

        Don't you hate that? A pretty good comment is turned into a FAIL! with the last word.

        Been there....

    Been waiting for OLED tv's for a LONG time.

      Same. 3D OLEDs now please (the ones that you dont need stupid glasses for).

    *starts saving the pennies*
    OLED is pretty much the only thing that will get me to upgrade from my plasma.

    I gotta say, I couldn't care less how thin the actual panel is... but that barely-there bevel is fantastic!!

      Exactly my thought too, friend. I think that's one of the most attractive features for me. Sure, a nicely designed bevel is great but no bevel at all.... fantastic.

    It was good of Kim Jong Un to take time out from running North Korea to do the press conference too.

    Do want - but couldn't go back to a 55 inch TV now - need moar.

    I thought they all gave up on oled 2 or 3 years ago. Something about short life expectancy?

    A side profile shot would be nice.

      You mean you want a photo of a thin black vertical line?
