      Well this makes me very happy. I’m finding the under 55” options a bit underwhelming right now.

      Wonder if it will be B10, C10, E10, or something different.

      This is a great news for those who find 50 plus inches bigger.

      I think we all find 50 plus inches bigger

      On a serious note a 48" OLED could go down very well in my kitchen. I have space for 50ninches and bigger in the front room but we tend to use the kitchen more often so I'm thinking it's worth getting something better but most good TVs are too big.

      Nice,oled is fantastic tech and only real minus for me is burn in so i hope that will also be better adressed in future models.

      Burn in isn't an issue.
      I'm thinking it'll be an A10

      Be good for some where 55 inch is too big for their lounge (in my dads position maybe) but love the cinematic plasma look and are stuck on a 42 inch 8g kuro or panny st, gt60 but dont get on with led..

      Hoping this sells well - this gap needed filling. I was helping a relative buy a new TV recently and he really like the look of OLED but only had room for 50" max, so ended up going LCD.

      I heard about this a while back and was mulling over getting OLED or not, especially since Currys are selling 55" Toshiba OLEDs for £799 right now. Burn in worried me so i asked around to see if burn in was covered. I spoke to most of the UK's major retailer, Currys, Hughes and Argos, and they all said nobody covers burn in. Not even when purchasing extended anything happens warranties. You can throw your TV down the stairs and get a replacement no problem on those anything happens warranties, but they won't cover burn in. This shows me that the manufacturers and retailers have no faith in the technology. If a 48" OLED came in at a reasonable price i can see it being tempting for some though. Bet they release at near £1000 though. Even though a 55" OLED is £999.

      I think it's more likely to be about £1499 at launch, because i think the just launched LG oleds start at £1999, the soon to be released Hisence oled at 55inch is £1599

      Really? Don't forget that they keep the previous years TV's up for sale. Like you can still buy LG's 2017 B7 OLED 55" for £999 in store. If they put out a 48" for £1,4999 why not just buy the 55" for £500 cheaper.

      I'm just thinking that there is no previous year 48" model to buy, and the people who are likely to buy it, are like me the one's unable to fit a 55" tv in their lounge. The top range Samsung 49" Qled is £1499 , but it did have a £200 reduction everywhere.

      Well, yeah. But seems a bit wrong to offer less TV but for a significantly higher price, no? Less real estate, less materials and all that. Normally the smaller the set the cheaper it is compared to the bigger sets.

      Eh.... As previous years ranges of televisions are always cheaper than the newest ranges, you're comparing apples to oranges!

      You'll only be able to realistically compare prices of the 48" model to the 55" model when LG release their 2020 ranges of OLED televisions.

      Great news for the 55" owners, who can now get in on the portable jokes.

      Well it would put me off of buying one anyway. £1,500 is a bit much still when you consider nobody covers burn in in the warranty. They say if you get it its your own fault. And that would be £1,500 down the toilet.

      In theory, could this model offer Freesync and other VRR modes?

      What prevents brands other than Samsung from supporting Freesync? Hardware? Exclusivity deals?

      I am sure I read 2019 LG OLEDs would support Freesync.
