Samsung Electronics Co.'s organic light-emitting diode (OLED) televisions that disappeared during their delivery to the IFA electronics trade show in Berlin last year have recently been discovered in Germany, company officials said Sunday, adding that local police are looking into the case for its possible link to a technology leak.
Two of Samsung's 60 display OLED TV sets went missing after being shipped from the company's plant in Suwon south of Seoul to the site of the IFA 2012 in Germany in August last year.
At that time, police suspected that the televisions went missing during their land transportation from an international airport in Frankfurt to Berlin.
According to the officials, private detectives hired by Samsung discovered the two televisions at an unidentified location in Germany earlier this year but failed to find any clues to the perpetrator or perpetrators.
At the time of their retrieval, the paper boxes containing the televisions were ripped open, but the products themselves were not damaged, they explained.
Despite the retrieval of the televisions, Samsung will ask the German police to continue their investigation into the case, due to the possibility of its link to a technology leak, they noted. (Yonhap news)
