Samsung to Start Production of 42 Inch OLED

Posted Mon May 17, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

OLEDs move ever closer to reality. Hopefully.

It looks like Samsung might be the first to produce an OLED screen that people might actually want to watch. While 11 and 17 inch displays are great tech demos, they're not something people are going to be hanging on their walls. 42 inches is a bit more reasonable.

And that's what Samsung is working on. An actual 42 inch OLED screen, or to be more accurate, a lot of 42 inch OLED screens. In the third quarter of 2010, they'll start pumping them out as a trial production. In early 2011, Samsung will start mass production.

Pricing is, of course, an issue. There's no telling just how much we'll have to shell out for what will undoubtedly be a stunning display. Once the date rolls closer though, you can expect to start hearing estimates.
