Sorry OLED TV fans – big sizes won’t get much cheaper any time soon

When you’ve been tempted to improve your own home theater by including top-of-the-line OLED TVs in an enormous measurement, you could have discovered your self quickly rethinking that concept when you noticed the value of them. OLED TVs at 77-inches, 83-inches and 97-inches are rather more costly than most LED TVs on the similar sizes. For instance, the 97-inch LG G2 prices a cool $25,000 / £25,000 / AU$48,000, although that is clearly essentially the most excessive of the bunch.

And sadly, it seems to be like that is not going to vary any time quickly. LG Show, which is the only real provider of OLED panels used within the majority of OLED TVs bought, has simply confirmed that it is delaying its plans to launch a ‘10.5G’ OLED manufacturing facility to FlatpanelsHD (opens in new tab). The following-gen ‘10.5G’ manufacturing unit tech is meant to have the ability to produce bigger OLED TV panels extra cheaply, bringing the value of biiiiiig OLEDs down.
