The CEO from LG-Display Kwon Young-Soo says that Apple plans no Apple-Tv with OLED-Technology in the near future. For a few weeks there are some rumor that Apple want to use LG-Displays 55 inch OLED technology in 2012 for a own HDTV device.
The biggest problem are the higher costs and some technology related issues.
Apple are not happy with the limited life span, color balance-related issues and the efficiency of the blue OLED material.
The sources claimed Apple may use picture quality-enhanced and tech-sharpened LCD displays for its televisions, as there are minor differences between OLEDs and LCDs at least to general consumers who don’t have much knowledge of displays.
LG Display is optimistic the korean company plans to investt $2.83 billion for a 8.5G OLED production line. If this is true the price from that kind of panels are going down and OLED-Television can be mainstream.
