This is the first official indication we have heard from a Samsung spokesperson, after the OLED-TV was unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas back in January. The spokesperson confirms that Samsung will release the TV in the second half of 2012 but Samsung also says that they have managed to produce the first models for the consumer market.

LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV is expected to retail at around 8000 USD, making it considerably cheaper than Samsung’s OLED-TV, unless the companies change their plans.

The Samsung spokesperson end the interview by saying that it will take 2-3 years until OLED displays will be price competitive in the mainstream market.
