It seems that if you want an OLED TV in Australia, you’re looking at a hefty price point. Samsung’s OLED is on sale now for $10,999, and LG’s OLED, which goes on sale in mid-September will cost a grand more.

LG’s also announced pricing today for its 55 inch and 65 inch UHDTVs, which will sell for a rather more moderate $4,999 and $7,499 respectively, also from mid-month.
The short amount of hands-on time I’ve had with LG’s Curved OLED impressed me from a visual fidelity viewpoint, but then again so did Samsung’s offering. I suspect it’ll be a while before you see both side to side on store shelves.
Then again, quickly checking my wallet suggests that I’m a little short of the asking price anyway. Anybody got a spare $11,996.45 they don’t need?
