LG launches 70s style retro TV with rotary dials for vintage-loving viewers

While it may not travel west to enhance our retro-loving viewing, hats off to LG for this gorgeous, 70s style 32-inch HD TV, launched for sale in its native South Korea.

Inspired by the tube TVs of yesteryear , The 32LN630R ‘Classic TV’ takes arrives packing a pair of wood-framed rotary dials which can be used for changing the channels and the volume, if you’re not into that whole ‘using the remote’ thing.

Beyond the retro white design and chrome dials the rest is pretty much what you’d expect from a modern telly.

It’s rocking a full HD resolution, IPS and 178-degree viewing angles. Users can also connect external hard drives or USB memory sticks, while also supporting MHL video from mobile devices.

LG says to launch of the TV is “to remember the old Venus TV to customers in the nostalgia of those days, the interior is important for customers to provide a trendy something special.”

The TV is available to buy in Koera for 840,000 won, which is around £480, but as we said, it’s unlikely to make its way to the UK.
