With all the hype that surrounds LG’s smartphones, it’s easy to forget that the company makes seriously formidable televisions too.
The company has just announced its TV line-up for Berlin’s IFA 2015 technology tradeshow, set to kick off next week.
LG is going to turn out four new WebOS 2.0-powered OLED TVs at the event, and they’ll all be 4K friendly.
Sales of UHD televisions are trending upwards, so it’s no surprise that the South Korean tech giant wants to bank on the growth.
What’s more, three of the four new TVs will support High Dynamic Range video.
That’s good news, as
Netflix has also pledged to start peddling HDR content in the near future, so we’ll start to see a lot more HDR-friendly TVs in the future.
“Anyone who sees our newest TVs at this year’s IFA will walk away without a shred of doubt that HDR and OLED complement each other perfectly,” explains Lee In-kyu, senior VP of LG’s TV division.
In-kyu continues: “Our expanded 4K OLED TV lineup will demonstrate to consumers that OLED is here to stay and that LG is committed to leading the next generation TV market.”
So, down to the specifics:
LG 55EF9500 – 55-inches, OLED, HDR, 4K, flat
LG 65EF9500 – 65-inches, OLED, HDR, 4K, flat
LG 55EG9200 – 55-inches, OLED, 4K, curved, 4.1mm thin
