In February, 2013 was mentioned as a possible launch window, and even though Digitimes’ report is unable to confirm this, it says that Philips will “showcase” (and not launch) the OLED-TV at IFA 2012.
The OLED-TV will reportedly use LG.Display’s OLED panels that are based on white OLED pixels with color filters. LG exhibited a 55-inch OLED-TV at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, back in January 2012. Sony is also interested in using LG’s OLED panels.
We have to underline that this is still a rumor but it is plausible. IFA 2012 will take place from August 31 to September 5, 2012 In Berlin.
