LG will unveil a 55-inch OLED TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week, touting it as the largest of its kind and the “future of TV technology”.

 
The TV features a huge organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel that is only 4mm thick and weighs just 7.5kg, utilising the technology used by many smartphones at a much larger scale.
 
With an infinite contrast ratio and speeds that are 1,000 times faster than LCD displays, it looks like OLED technology is definitely the way forward for the TV manufacturing industry.
 
It also comes with LG's 4-Colour Pixels, adding white to the traditional RGB mix, and Colour Refiner, which enhances colour consistency across multiple viewing angles to improve hues and tones.

“Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies,” said Havis Kwon, president and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace.”
 
LG previously released 15-inch and 31-inch OLED TV models, but those sizes won't satisfy many home entertainment enthusiasts who will want something larger than 40 inches. We can likely expect something in the 60 to 70 inch range within the next year or two, in addition to other sizes between the existing ranges. Price will be an obstacle, however, even with LG's cheaper production method.
