Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) is currently showing off their monstrous flagship OLED panel, the 55-inch behemoth of an OLED TV at SID 2012 that is held in Boston, US. This OLED TV was said to be on track for a 2012 release, and Samsung has opened themselves up to release the specifications behind this 55-inch OLED panel. This is an improvement over the same model’s debut at CES 2012 earlier this year.
For starters, we do know that the Samsung 55-inch OLED TV will boast of a contrast ratio of 150,000:1 and a 124% color gamut on NTSC standards, sporting a brightness level of 150cd/m2 alongside an all-white signal, not to mention having a peak brightness of 600cd/m2. It also comes with a response speed that is 0.001 second or faster, while the entire OLED TV measures just 1.6mm thick (or should we say thin?), tipping the scales at a featherweight 3.5kg. Dang, this means the entire TV might weigh less than some of the heavy duty desktop replacement notebooks out there!
Needless to say, all of this engineering marvel was made possible thanks to the clever implementation of low-temperature polysilicon TFTs as driver elements, while the panel’s structure is a bottom-emission type that will extract light from the TFT board. No idea on pricing, but it definitely is going to cost quite a handsome amount of money when released.
