LG is showing off a 55" OLED TV at CES 2013. Engadget got to see it at CES and reports the screen is impressively sharp and delivers really great viewing angles. The 55" model will start shipping in the US in March for $11,999. A 65-incher will also be launched as well as an even larger model, but the pricing of these sets remains unknown.
Only 0.16 inches (4 millimeters) thin and weighing less than 22 pounds (10 kilograms), LG's OLED TVs produce astoundingly vivid and realistic pictures thanks to its superior WRGB technology:

  • LG's unique Four-Color Pixel system features a white sub-pixel, which works in conjunction with the conventional red, blue, green setup to create the perfect color output.

  • LG's exclusive Color Refiner delivers even greater tonal enhancement, resulting in images that are more vibrant and natural than anything seen before.

  • The 55-inch OLED TV also offers an infinite contrast ratio, which maintains optimal contrast levels regardless of ambient brightness or viewing angle.
