40-inch OLED biggest possible and not for sale, says Samsung

Samsung is showing-off a 40-inch OLED screen and a new report indicates that the set is the biggest possible size with current production techniques. Because of this limitation, the set cannot be mass produced and therefore the 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio capable set is not going to be for sale anytime soon. 

“Our low temperature poly-Si TFT mass-production line cannot make panels larger than 31 inches,” a Samsung staffer said. “This 40-inch TFT panel is the largest size that can be made on our pilot line, and it cannot be mass-produced right away.

I’m sure if an affluent Dubai prince wants one of these sets, Samsung would probably hook’m up, but for us Joe-the-plumber types, we are going to have to wait awhile.
