LG to showcase 55-inch OLED TV at CES 2012, claims it to be the world’s largest

LG has a special treat in store for CES visitors next year, a massive 55-inch TV that uses an OLED panel, the largest to be used on any TV yet. LG claims that the panel has a contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

Compared to other OLED TVs, the LG TV uses a White OLED or WOLED panel. Unlike AMOLED panels that use RGB subpixels placed next to each other, WOLED panels stack the subpixels one above the other, which results in lower error rate, clearer picture and low color distortion at wider viewing angles.

As with other OLED TV, the LG TV lacks a backlight, which makes it consume less power compared to a regular LCD TV and at the same time makes it extremely thin, as can be seen below.

No release date or pricing has been mentioned yet although to be honest, I’m not sure I want to know the price of a TV with such a large OLED panel.
