Despite saying that mainstream OLED is years away Samsung has announced both a 14.1in and 31in OLED TV as "production-ready." The displays will be on show at Display Week 2009, and hopefully there will also be details of when that production will start!

Samsung says that the use of Full Metal Mask technology (a type of screen manufacturing process) its OLED TVs can be mass produced. The 31in OLED TV has a Full HD, 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a better than 100 per cent NTSC colour gamut - for those to whom that is important. All that and a thickness of only 8.9mm!

The 14.1in display unsurprisingly has a lower, WXGA, resolution, but like Sony's XEL-1 it would still make an awesome bedroom or kitchen TV. And being cheaper to manufacture than a larger panel, it could help Samsung with refining its production techniques possible accelerating the development of larger, affordable displays.

Roll on production OLED TVs!
