Who cares if 3D OLED TVs are still a ways off and Sony is quitting the business? The fact remains: 3D OLED TVs give us a look into the future, where TVs are ultra thin and ultra light. LG's 55-inch 3D OLED is purely one panel to drool over, even if we'll never be able to buy one anytime soon.
Weighing in at about 16.5 pounds, you can literally lift LG's 55-inch 3D OLED TV up with one hand by its included metallic rod stand. That's how light the panel is.
The TV's profile measures 5mm at its thinnest point and has a bezel that's almost non-existent. LG's OLED TV is a 1080p HD panel — not quite the Ultra Definition resolution that's in its other 84-inch TV — but colors looked accurate and rich and blacks were very deep.
Of course, there's also a caveat. Like all thin TVs, most of the guts have to be stowed somewhere else. From what we could see, the TV's main components are either stuffed into a rear "hump" and in its stand.
No pricing or release was announced, but we'd reckon it'd be super expensive.
This is how we want the future of TVs to look like — portable enough to move from room to room without much effort.
Don't let us keep harping about the 3D OLED TV. Take a gander for yourself below.
