LG will start shipping its 55-inch OLED TV in May, but its uncertain if the company will be shipping the same model that was on exhibition at the Trade Show in Las Vegas or it will be debuting an entirely new model.
The new 55-inch OLED TV from LG comes with an ultra thin design and its also ultra lightweight weighing less than 17 pounds. The model is also 3D-ready which means its compatible with your 3D Blu-ray player. With OLED Technology consumers can expect a device with much faster performance and response time than the conventional LCD displays available on the market.
