Samsung unveiled their <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1326148356><b>55-inch Super OLED-TV</b></a> at CES. FlatpanelsHD had a chance to spend some time with the OLED-TV. Here are our first hands-on impressions.<br /><br /><h3>Samsung's OLED-TV hands-on</h3>Samsung and LG introduced the world to the first large-size OLED-TVs at CES, and has marked the rise of a new TV display technology with really exciting characteristics.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungoledtv55-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungoledtv55-1.jpg" alt="Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV</i></p><br />We saw it in action and it looked gorgeous. The colors very extremely vivid (although boosted), black depth looked amazing even though the screen was semi-glossy, and fast motion seemed flawless. The picture detailing was stunning as well, and the viewing angles were practically perfect. The OLED technology is not new and has been utilized in smartphones already but with the introduction in large-format TVs, we can truly appreciate the OLED technology’s great picture characteristics.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungoledtv55-3l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungoledtv55-3.jpg" alt="Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV</i></p><br />The OLED-TV was also extremely slim. Samsung made no mention of the input connector solution but also said that the design at CES could differ from the final design. However, unlike LCD and plasma TVs, thinness on an OLED panel is a natural thing. It is a characteristic of the technology and results in no picture quality compromises – it is actually very impractical to even make thick OLED panels. We also asked Samsung about general life time, pricing, perspectives and such but Samsung tells nothing at this stage.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungoledtv55-7l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungoledtv55-7.jpg" alt="Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV</i></p><br />The TV will implement 3D capabilities when it arrives but Samsung did not demonstrate it. We have past experience with OLED panels and 3D and the extremely fast response time of an OLED panel ensures great 3D pictures with no crosstalk, but we obviously need to wait for a real demonstration of Samsung’s OLED-TV before we can make any conclusions.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungoledtv55-6l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungoledtv55-6.jpg" alt="Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung’s 55-inch Super OLED-TV</i></p><br />To summarize, Samsung’s OLED-TV looked amazing and we are very excited to see it when it arrives in the second half of 2012. It will be called KN55ES9000 and is Samsung’s 9 series flagship model for 2012. The price has not been disclosed.<br /><br />Learn more about <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1326148356><b>Samsung’s Super OLED-TV here</b></a> and learn more about OLED technology in general in our <a href=/oled.php><b>OLED section</b></a>.
