The HD-ready OLED television panel that boasts of 1366×768 pixel specifications comes about as a device with 10.000.000:1 contrast ratio. The 3.5-mm thick display, that has a response time of 0.001m sec thanks to LG’s own Truemotion 100 Hz technology, is an ultra slim device which can be mounted on the wall or attached to a stand.

Specs that LG list out include the ability to deliver deeper blacks, sans backlight. Enhanced with Freeview built-in and a USB 2.0 input for movie playback, the LG 15EL9500 OLED Panel boasts of the ability to provide a perfect television viewing experience owing to its vivid picture quality and self-illuminating organic components.

LG has built it in such a way that you could watch you favourite movie on the new LG 15EL9500 even while you are in the bath tub, thanks to the water-resistant capabilities incorporated into the new panel.

The 15-inch device has, in the meantime, triggered talks of a 22-inch edition following close on the heels of this model. While LG is planning to hit the markets with the 15 inch version by the end of the current month, we may have to wait for the 22-inch model at least till Christmas next.

The official announcement of the LG 15EL9500 OLED has forced enthusiasts to do a comparison with Sony’s XEL-1 launched last month. The LG 15EL9500 OLED is better at least in terms of pricing, as it would be on offer for less than half the price of Sony’s device. Plus, it would have an extra 4-inches of display area too.

So that brings us to what price tag the LG 15EL9500 OLED sport would when it finally arrives in stores by the month end. Though LG hasn’t yet made official the pricing details, its is expected that the 15 inch model will come for a price somewhere between £1500 and £2000 in the UK.
