Panasonic’s latest TV looks dead fancy thanks to top designers and architects

Panasonic’s upcoming DX802 TV has been designed with input from top European designers and architects.

While the new model isn’t Panasonic’s flagship TV, it’s the most ‘design centric’ and is clearly an attempt to make the TV more like a piece of furniture than a dull item of consumer electronics.

The result is something that looks a little like a giant picture frame with the screen tilting on a hinge in the middle, and it’s available in 50- and 58-inch sizes.

Of course, it’s also an advanced 4K TV as it slots in just below the range topping DX902. The DX802 uses Panasonic’s Studio Master HCX panel, which has been tuned at the company’s Hollywood labs facility.

It’s HDR capable and should, pending confirmation, pass the THX 4K certification. Netflix and Amazon apps are pre-installed on the Firefox OS smart TV system, and each supports 4K and HDR content.

There’s no confirmed release date or price for the DX802, but you can be certain it isn’t one of Panasonic’s affordable models.
