Samsung Electronics on Thursday introduced a curved 55-inch premium TV using an advanced organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology that also supports high-definition (HD) picture quality. The world’s biggest TV manufacturer said that it will start the sale of the TVs outside Korea from July.
A senior company executive said that the curved OLED TVs will be available in most developed markets including the United States. It also plans to sell the devices in emerging markets, as well.
“Samsung believes that curved OLED TVs are better than traditional ‘flat’ OLED TVs in terms of customer value because the curved ones provide improved picture quality,” said Kim Hyun-seok, head of the company’s visual display division, during a news conference at the firm’s main office in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul, Thursday.
The executive claimed the latest curved OLED TV is “flawless” or has zero pixel defects. It is priced at 15 million won or some $13,000. The firm claims its “Timeless Arena” design eliminates potential for defective OLED pixels.
