Samsung's 55-inch OLED TV Launching This Spring

We see a lot of beautiful gadgets at CES each year and this year Samsung's 55-inch OLED was at the top of our list. With its slim design and minimal bezel, it's hard not to see the beauty in a TV like this. Sadly, at the time, Samsung couldn't say when the device would be launching -- the company only said that it would go on sale in the second half of this year. Lucky for us, unlike some products that appear at CES only to never be seen again, the 'Super' OLED TV will soon make its way to the UK.

Crave cites word from Samsung directly in reporting that the 8mm thin television is on its way to the UK this spring. The TV is 3D-capable, and also boasts an integrated camera coupled with what Samsung is calling Smart Interaction Technology. This allows users to control their TV with voice and motion control as well as face recognition.

Pricing has yet to be announced. Still, considering we had originally heard the TV was scheduled to be launched in the second half of the year, we're happy enough just knowing it's coming sooner rather than later. Besides, the price would probably only depress us anyway.

    Still happy with my 42" inch plasma.
    When I do upgrade though, I want at least 70"-80" Screen at 4K resolution at similar cost of what I paid for my plasma a few years back.

    Not really care if is Oled, LCD or Plasma, but I'm certain that I will still not care about 3D.
    All I care are: better resolution (4K), better blacks, faster refresh rates and Network ready
    so I can hook that beauty to my NAS.

  • 1920 x 1080. If it were 4k it would beyond the reach of almost everybody in terms of price.
    Also I didn't realise that they had integrated cameras in tv's in the 80's that could detect body movement for tv operation - knob head.

    I wonder how OLED image quality compares with Mitsubishi's LaserVue displays.

    Samsung has stated the price will be much less than $8,000 US and will be only slightly pricier than their best LCD sets.
