Samsung announced it has developed the first 31" OLED display. The display is only 4.3mm thick and uses less than half the electricity of a 32" LCD display.
Samsung SDI officials declined to say when the company's 31-inch OLED screen would be mass-produced, saying the decision depended on TV set makers' plans.
But they said Samsung Electronics, the world's largest maker of liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs, would showcase a 31-inch prototype TV set at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early January.
Samsung SDI is also planning to mass-produce 14-inch screens in 2008, Yoo Eui-jin, head of Samsung SDI's AM-OLED team, said at a press conference introducing the display.
Although Yoo declined to name the companies that would use the AM-OLED screens, he said a number of companies had expressed interest.
