LG is expanding its OLED TV line-up with a 31-inch, 3D capable model on show at IFA 2010. The new, super-slim 3D TV will join the company's existing 15-inch model on the market next year and LG says it plans to extend the range even further during 2011.
The 31-inch model is billed as the world's slimmest OLED TV at 2.9cm (1.14-inches) thick and uses passive glasses for 3D viewing. It boasts an "infinite contrast ratio" (the 15-inch is specced at 10,000,000:1), full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), can be viewed from any angle and comes with a folding stand.
OLED TVs have been on the radar as the next big thing in display technology for some time. They offer great contrast, incredible brightness and with no need for backlighting, they are amazingly thin. Sony launched its 11-inch XEL-1 OLED television two years ago, but delayed the release of a planned larger model.
