Samsung showcases 82" LCD TV, 40" OLED

Samsung uses the International Meeting on Information Display 2005 conference, currently held in Seoul, to show its most recent devices. Among the products are several products that have been part of press releases but have not been shown to the public. This includes a monstrous 82" LCD TV panel that offers 180-degree viewing angles and a color saturation of 92 percent, according Samsung.

Also on display is a thin 40" active matrix OLED with a resolution of 1280 x 800, a brightness of 600, a contrast ratio of 5000:1 and color saturation of 80 percent. And there is news for mobile phones: Samsung demos an "always-on" section display that requires virtually no power on standby mode, according to the company: A dual-window structure divides the "indicator" display and main window. The indicator window, which only consumes 0.45mw of power, shows the time, day of week, remaining battery life, antenna status and mailbox status.

Samsung did not release any information on availability and pricing of these devices. (THG)
