55-inch OLED TV Costs Ten Times More to Build Than 55-inch LCD TV

NPD DisplaySearch:

[…] the manufacturing cost of a 55” oxide TFT-based AMOLED using white OLED with color filters is 8 times that of a high-end 55” TFT LCD display of equal size. The cost multiplier of a 55” AMOLED module using red, green, and blue OLED is 10 times. These higher costs are mainly a result of low yields and high materials costs.

Samsung makes a 55-inch OLED TV with RGB OLED while LG makes it with WOLED. And both will be out of reach for 99% of folks who are thinking of purchasing a TV this year.
