SEOUL. Korea, June 3 (Whowired)--Samsung and LG Electronics will go head to head in introducing 70-inch Active Matrix OLED or AM OLED TVs in the 2nd half of this year.
According to the Electronics Times, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics will unveil 75-inch and 77-inch AM OLED TVs respectively at IFA in Berlin this coming September.
The 70-inch plus AM OLED TVs are expected to hit the consumer market sometime at the end of this year, or in the 1st half of 2014 at the latest.
The 2 Korean consumer electronics giants previously went head to head in the competition over 55-inch OLED TVs last year in CES, followed by curved OLED TVs early this year, and will continue to compete fiercely in the fight to take the upper hand in next generation AM OLED TVs.
Unlike LCDs, AM OLED TVs do not require a separate backlight unit making the TVs extremely thin and more flexible. It has extremely wide viewing angles and fast response times. AMOLED also delivers unrivaled color reproduction rates and contrast ratios.
Recently in the CES earlier this year, Samsung and LG also unveiled 56 inch Ultra High Definition OLED TVs, before other manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic. Not long after, Taiwan based manufacturer set another record by unveiling panels for 65-inch OLED TVs. And now, once again, Samsung and LG are preparing to unveil 70-inch sized OLED TVs to stay ahead of the game.
Keep dreaming! OLED TV will never work! Sure they can bring them to market, but how long before people will start to complain about the burn-in problem? This is just another attempt to regain some of the money they invested in this failed technology. But it will only tarnish their reputation when they bring this to market...
They've spent billions on OLED and QTMM spent $12,000 in the last quarter on research. Are you for real ? Here let me help you with what is called the bankers rule"Your first lose is your best lost".as they will progressively grow worse. Dump your #$%$ and make your money back in PANL QTMM won't see 0.14 in 5 years.
