LG Electronics officially announced their spring 2015 TV lineup, launching several new TVs. Unfortunately, while LG announced six new models during CES, currently they announce just one - the 65" EG9600, which will cost $8,999.

Will Apple unveil the Watch's flexible OLED display on March 9th?

Last month Apple said that they will ship the Apple watch in April 2015. Today Apple announced that they are hosting a press event on March 9th - with the message on the invite saying "spring forward". It's highly likely that during this event Apple will officially launch their first wearable device, and hopefully provide all the technical details about the display.

Hopefully Apple will finally unveil the actual display type used in the Watch. In the-launch event they said it uses a "flexible Retina display", which can mean anything. According to several trusted sources, the Watch uses a flexible OLED display.

Several online retailers are now offering LG's 55EC9300 (the 2014 55" curved Full-HD OLED TV) for less than $2,400 - the lowest price ever for an OLED TV. Amazon still lists it at $2,799.

The 55EC9300 is a 55" curved FHD OLED TV, based on LG's WebOS smart TV platform. The TV features a 240Hz refresh rate and a brightness of 500 cd/m2. In two weeks LG is going to launch its 2015 55" curved TV that features 4K resolution, so retailers are probably eager to get rid of last year's OLED TVs.

OLED-Info gets a new, faster server

Today we moved OLED-Info to a new web server. This new server is a lot faster than our previous one, and hopefully you'll notice that the site is now displayed somewhat faster. In the past few months we had server service outages (mostly due to server load, because our traffic increases), and hopefully the new server won't have these issues.

If anyone sees any errors or weird behavior, please let us know and we'll fix it. Enjoy the new, faster, OLED-Info!
