LG Launches 55” OLED TV, Will Show 4K Ultra HDTVs at CES 2013
LG will begin accepting orders on its 55-inch 55EM9700 OLED TV. And at CES 2013 LG will be showing various 4K Ultra HDTVs.
We thought 2012 was going to be the year OLED TVs made a big impact on videophiles. We also thought the world would end a couple times and that the nation would drop off an imaginary fiscal cliff.
So far we’re not batting too well on the predictions.
LG Electronics is coming through on its promise of an OLED TV. It will begin accepting orders January 3, 2013 for the 55EM9700, the same 55-inch OLED TV we drooled over at CES 2012. It goes on sale first in LG’s home of South Korea for about $10,000. Early adopters can expect delivery of their new TVs in February.
The 55EM9700 is only 4 millimeters (0.16 inches) thick and weighs less 22 pounds. OLED is capable of producing incredible colors and excellent black levels, which should make this a technology for home theater enthusiasts to pine for. LG uses a Four-Color Pixel system that features a white sub-pixel, which works in conjunction with the conventional red, blue, green setup for accurate color output, and a Color Refiner is used to deliver tonal enhancement.
The news release didn’t say when the TV would come to the US, but we guess it will be soon.
Now LG’s Display division will be showing additional 4K TV models at CES in 55- and 65-inch sizes plus a 30-inch monitor aimed at professional markets.
LG will also at CES 2013 two new TVs (GA7900 and GA6400) with the latest Google TV 3.0 built in.
