Just how these panels will be used in TVs is a bit of a mystery.

The folks at LG have opened up a new plant to create 55" panels, but there's a bit of a mystery surrounding them as the OLEDs will simply be white.

OLED-Info suggests that these white OLEDs may be used as backlighting for traditional LCD panels, just as LED is regularly used today. The other option is that LG may be using a color filtering technology that they recently acquired from Kodak.

Whatever happens, the plant is expected to be mass producing panels by the end of this year at a rate of 72,000 a month.
