LG's mammoth 55-inch OLED TV is CES-bound

LG prepares a CES stunner--the largest of the ultrathin OLED TV panels yet, at a price that might not make you scream.

It's not every day you can claim making the largest of the thinnest TV screens on the planet--which is precisely why LG is drumming up excitement for its 55-inch OLED TV panel at CES 2012.

What's the big deal? The 5-millimeter-thick display is light, pencil-thin, and promises high definition with no after image--that motion-induced blur you may see in an LCD screen. In addition, it boasts a contrast ratio of over 100,000:1.

What's more, LG is setting up a stepped-up pricing war, strongly hinting that its world's-largest OLED display won't cost an arm and a leg.

"Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV display, the technology has been limited to smaller display sizes and by high costs, until now," said Dr. Sang Beom Han, CEO and Executive Vice President of LG Display, in a statement. "LG Display's 55-inch OLED TV panel has overcome these barriers."

We'll hopefully find out exactly what that price will be during LG's press conference in January.
