Samsung showed off its first OLED TV this year in January at the Consumer Electrics Show in Las Vegas, much to the delight of OLED fans awaiting a bigger 55 inch OLED TV to be released that would improve upon SONY’s 11 inch model. OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diodes and is the next new technology to rival and improve upon LCD flat-screen televisions. The Samsung model, called the ES9500 OLED TV, claims to have revolutionary picture quality and is to be released in the second half of 2012. This new technology will not come cheap however. The model is to be released first in South Korea where it will be marketed at a Korean price of 10 million won (around $8,760).
