LG’s 55-inch OLED TV will be shown for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.

LG Electronics is creating pre-CES buzz with an announcement that it will be showing a 55-inch OLED TV, 84-inch Ultra Definition 3D TV and 72-inch 3D LED, which it claims to be "the world's largest."

Cost of the sets is unknown at this point.

According to the LA Times, an LG executive says the company has overcome the high-cost barriers associated with OLED.

"Our objective has always been to actively define and lead emerging display technology markets," Sang Beom Han, chief executive and executive vice president of LG Display, told the Times of India newspaper about the debuts at CES 2012.

"Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV display, the technology has been limited to smaller display sizes and by high costs, until now. LG Display's 55-inch OLED TV panel has overcome these barriers."

OLEDs are commended for their quality, but have been very expensive for consumer adoption. Perhaps OLED sets will help re-ignite flat panel sales via the custom installation channel.
