LG Bringing Largest OLED TV to UK This Month

In a week that has seen the UK government sell out its public with the Digital Economy Bill and Apple finally enable iPhone multi-tasking it seems just about anything can happen, including this...

OLED TVs are finally coming to the UK in a larger size. That size may be just 15 inches, but it's still a significant step up from the sole 11in Sony XEL-1 currently on the market. LG is the company doing this with the 'OLED TV' (yep, literal naming taken to a whole new level) which will also be known as the '15EL9500'. Furthermore, specifications for this wiz bang screen tech are predictably off the charts.

Key specs:

  • Just 3.2mm thick

  • TruMotion 100Hz

  • HD ready 720p (1366 x 768 resolution)

  • Digital Freeview built in

  • USB 2.0 connectivity capable of displaying jpg, mp3 and DivX HD

  • 10,000,000 : 1 contrast ratio

  • 100Hz motion tracking

  • Response time of under 0.1ms

  • 40W power consumption
The truly scary part, price, hasn't yet been revealed so your dreams needn't die now. The LG OLED TV has already been out in the US since December, so we're playing catch up here - but at least it will hit the shelves this month, so dream while you can.

Interestingly 15in OLED sets are seen as a stepping stone to 32in panels, so perhaps this time next year it might be time to start getting a little bit excited...

Update: We've just had official word from LG that it has given a guide price to retailers of £1,500 to £2,000. Most will therefore likely place it around the £1,750 mark. Yes, that's hugely expensive - but compared to the £3,500 the 11in Sony XEL-1 still sells for it does show OLED prices are starting to come down, fast.
