I see your 4K TV and raise you a curved 55" OLED screen

August 13, 2013 - 01:01 PM |

Tomorrow for a cool $9000, which is cheaper than predicted, you can get your hands on the Samsung KN55S9C.  That is a 55" OLED TV which is curved to offer you a more natural viewing experience, or for anyone who can dream a way to have multiple displays curve around you instead of placing flat panels at a slight angle.  They do not state a resolution nor really any details apart from the price and size, hopefully tomorrow someone will have gotten their hands on one to get the proper specifications.  Check out Gizmodo for a brief explanation on how two people can simultaneously watch two different shows with certain 3D glasses.


"The new display comes with Samsung's famed Multi-View feature, which means two people watch two different programs at once, thanks to the included active 3D glasses. And even though it seemed like we might never see the day, you can actually pick one up for your very own at select retailers for a cool 9K."

Can you spare $14K for a curvaceous LCD?

April 29, 2013 - 04:38 PM |

You thought 72"+ HD panels and 4K TVs were expensive?  Wait until you get a load of the price tag attached to the first curved OLED displays which will hit the market in South Korea for a mere $13,569; each.  At just 4.3mm thick and 17lbs they won't be hard to position in your home, if you can afford the asking price of one, let alone the three you would need to get proper multi-monitor performance.  The Inquirer begged for an official release date and price for the UK and were disappointed as are those in North America who have been waiting for these for several years now.


"SOUTH KOREAN ELECTRONICS FIRM LG has announced that it will launch the world's first curved OLED TV this summer, pipping rival Samsung to the post to take the lead in OLED technology."
