Earlier today we posted that according to a Chinese TV commercial, LG is set to release their OLED TV in April. One of our readers (thanks Chewi!) sent us a link to a Russian site that claims that LG plans to launch the 55" TV in Russia in March 2013. The price? 499,990 Rubles, or about $16,500 (considerably more expensive then earlier estimates of $10,000). The site says that LG's store in Moscow already accepts pre-orders (hopefully one of our Russian readers can confirm this?).
So all those reports are not official, but hopefully LG indeed plans to finally release the TV in Q1 2013. They already announced that they will show an updated model at CES in January 2013, and the OLED TV already passed FCC inspection, towards a US release.
