No, this is not an OLED screen, this LCD TV still requires backlighting. The reason it is so thin is that its backlighting is done using LEDs, which are smartly placed along the edges of the TV screen. This will also mean 40 per cent less energy consumption than conventional LCD TVs. The company will reportedly pump in $65 million for promoting these TVs in the US market alone. They are expected to retail at over $3,100 and will be available in 40-inch, 46-inch and 55-inch diagonal size models.

Samsung says it has now resolved technical issues of the edge-lit LED LCD TV, which were: inadequate brightness across the entire screen, and overheating of the outside frames and light-guide plate.

One frame lights up when then the other detects a person in front. The techology is simple. The motion sensor is connected to the Internet and sends a signal to the other frame, when it senses motion. More Info: www.mathlete.com.
