LG's 15-inch OLED TV headed for U.S.

The set will be the largest commercially available OLED TV on sale in the U.S. besides the Sony XEL-1, which is being withdrawn from the Japanese market.

The LG EL9500 OLED TV , which is reportedly selling for around $2,500 in Korea, will be heading for the U.S. around the middle of this year. This makes it the largest commercially available OLED TV on sale in the States besides the Sony XEL-1, which is being withdrawn from the Japanese market due to weak demand.

The newer 15-inch EL9500 is not only bigger than the XEL-1 in terms of screen size; it also packs a higher 1,366x768 resolution, which qualifies this Korean panel as an HD-ready TV. Other notable goodies include a fast 100Hz refresh rate and in-built wireless A/V link.

We've not received any U.S. price indication, but will update this post when we do.
