LG to start selling curved OLED TVs
April 30 , 2013
LG Electronics is to begin deliveries of curved OLED television sets next month.
The 55-inch model will be priced at $13,550 and will initially be sold in South Korea.
The use of organic light-emitting diodes enable the screens to be made thinner and more flexible.
The South Korean firm is the first to launch such a product.
According to analysts, the move will give LG "bragging rights" but demand is expected to be limited.
LG Electronics and rival Samsung Electronics both showcased curved OLED TV prototypes at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. Neither firm had announced release dates at the time.
