LG has announced that UK consumers can now pre-order the world’s first 55-inch OLED TV for delivery in July.

Already shipping in Korea and the US, LG has now confirmed the UK details for the ground-breaking TV, which offers crisp, vivid pictures via its WRGB technology.

“We are proud to be the first in the world to offer consumers a big screen OLED TV,” said Brian Na, LG Electronics UK President. “LG’s next generation display is a true game changer, which will forever alter the way we think about TVs.”

“Since OLED TV was first unveiled, we’ve been working tirelessly to bring what we call ‘the ultimate display’ to market. I’m sure you’ll agree that our 55-inch OLED TV has definitely been worth the wait.”

LG OLED TV Features

Measuring up at just 4.5mm thick and weighing less than 10kg, the LG OLED TV is a stunningly designed TV, capable of offerings Full 1920 x 1080p HD resolutions for a realistic and vivid picture due to its WRGB technology. This means the OLED display introduces a white sub-pixel to compliment the traditional red, blue and green setup to create a more accurate and intense image.

The LG OLED TV also packs Smart TV features, such as catch-up TV from BBC iPlayer, on-demand movies from LoveFilm, games and social media apps.
