The unique and immersive curved design will provide consumers with an ultimate viewing experience.

This OLED TV will provide you with plasma like superior picture quality, with the downside being, that you can’t mount it on a wall (not considering the cost factor). The TV has all that you could want from a TV, but for now the curved display is more of a design factor which looks pretty good being only 4.3 mm thick.
