LG has started selling its 55” OLED-TV in select countries but Samsung has yet to release anything. However, both manufacturers plan to showcase even larger OLED-TVs at the IFA show in September, according to Korean sources.
Larger OLED-TV coming at IFA?
Almost one and a half year ago, Samsung and LG proudly unveiled 55” OLED-TVs. LG’s version was released almost a year after but Samsung has not released anything during that period.

According to Korean newspaper ETNews, both companies plan to unveil even larger OLED-TVs soon. Sources say that LG will exhibit a 77” OLED-TV and Samsung a 75” OLED-TV at the IFA show in Berlin this September. The sources claim that the TVs will be released later this year or in the first half of 2014. They also claim that both companies are looking to launch OLED-TVs with Ultra HD resolution next year.
Display makers are still putting a lot of resources into OLED development but it has proven difficult to produce the ultrathin TVs. Too many panels have to be discarded as defective to make mass production viable.
