Samsung Rolls Out New 40-Inch OLED TV
While there's been talk of Samsung rolling out a commercially available OLED TV in 2009, it'll supposedly be a 14-inch panel. However, that doesn't mean Samsung hasn't continued tweaking the technology for larger displays down the road. Today Samsung SDI pulled a 40-inch prototype out of its corporate hat with 1080p resolution and a claimed 1, 000, 000:1 contrast ratio, of course in part due to self-luminating LED's. Way back in 2005, Samsung was showing a 40-inch OLED prototype but at that time all's the company could muster was 1280 x 800 pixels and by today's standards, a horrible 5, 000:1 contrast ratio.
Right now we're left to dream though, as there of course is no shipping date for the new prototype if it ever hits shelves. But we're looking forward to CES 2009, where we're sure Samsung will be showing off next year's OLED TV release should there be one.
