KOREAN ELECTRONICS GIANT Samsung somehow managed to lose two very expensive OLED TV sets on its way to IFA in Berlin.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Samsung admitted up that two of its advanced organic light-emitting diode (OLED) televisions were lost between 21 and 28 August as they were in shipment to Berlin for the IFA technology tradeshow.

"Upon Samsung's request, the Korean and German authorities are currently conducting an investigation," Samsung said in a statement.

Although it's unclear whether the televisions have been simply misplaced or stolen, we're putting our money on the latter, given that the two TVs are believed to have cost around $10,000 each and have not yet been released.

Still, it might be two TVs down, but that didn't stop Samsung from putting on a show in Berlin last week. The firm launched its second 'phablet' device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, as well as its debut Windows Phone 8 handset, the bizarrely named Samsung Ativ S.

Other products on show from the firm included the Windows 8 powered Ativ Tab and Ativ Smart PC, as well as the Android powered Samsung Galaxy Camera.

Samsung was unable to tell us any further details about the loss. µ
