If you don’t know this by now, the new technology is OLED and you should get ready for it. Although it is pretty expensive right now, it’s still something you should consider if you can afford it. OLED means a thin panel and remarkable picture quality and Samsung is among the first to put the new technology on the market.
The company has showcased it’s new 55-inch ES9500 OLED panel at the CES show in Las Vegas and has announced it’s availability for this year ahead of the rival LG. LG was also planning to release a giant display but is seems the official release has been postponed.
Samsung has proudly announced once again that “the first OLED display” on the market will become available soon enough for $9000. LG has previously stolen the CES 2011 show with their tiny 15-inch display but that doesn’t count if you ask Samsung.
What you’ll get for your money is the self emitting light sub pixel technology allowing total contrast control for each pixel in order to produce color rich images, 20% richer in comparison to the LED technology. Adding to the new technology, there’s also 3D to be found in the 55ES9500 model and Dual View, meaning two people will be able to watch different images on this display at the same time, only by positioning themselves in the right viewing angle.
Adding to these three technologies which will most likely revolutionize the way you are watching TV, the 55ES9500 is also a Smart TV and comes with built-in WiFi in order to connect to the Internet and display content from Internet Streaming Services such as Netflix, Pandora, HULU Plus and many more. Also to be found with the new OLED TV is gesture and voice control, a technology which also comes with the 2012 LED TV displays.
Samsung has announced that their 55ES9500 OLED TV will become available in the second part of the year for $9000. If that's a bit too expensive, there's always the ES7500 flagship series that will look awesome on your nightstand and is available right now.
