LG Launches a 15 Inch OLED in Europe

Posted Wed Sep 15, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Sadly, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing a US release anytime soon.

LG's 15EL9500 probably isn't something a lot of people would be willing to shell out for. Sure, the OLED screen would look fantastic in the kitchen or bedroom, but $2,300 is a lot to ask for 15 inches of television. But just because we wouldn't buy it doesn't mean we don't want the option.

As far as these things go, the 15EL9500 is a pretty slick little television. It's capable of showing HD pictures thanks to a 1366 x 768 resolution, and it's got a ridiculous 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. It also sports TruMotion 100Hz – the PAL equivalent of TruMotion 120Hz.

The 15EL9500 comes in at 3.2mm thick, and with a 15.1 inch screen. It includes a few different audio technologies to boost sound quality, and can display 24p for Blu-rays. All in all, not a bad little set.

The new set is available now in Europe, but no US release date has been mentioned.
