"South Korea's Samsung Electronics said Tuesday it had developed the world's largest organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel for high-definition televisions.
The 21-inch (53.34-centimeter) OLED panel outperforms existing liquid crystal displays (LCDs) in brightness, slimness and power efficiency, the firm said. Samsung, one of the world's top electronics companies, said its new OLED display panel, an upgrade on its own 15-inch product, uses technology that can be easily mass-produced on the company's existing LCD production lines.
"With the development of the world's largest OLED, Samsung has achieved a technological advantage and is positioned well to be a leader in the market for large-sized OLEDs for TVs," said Jun-Hyung Souk, senior vice president of the LCD research and development center.
Samsung said the OLED display features resolution of 6.22 million pixels and uses active matrix-based (AM) technology for low power consumption and high-resolution."
