US pricing and availability have been revealed for the company's new Ultra HD OLED displays.
LG has officially announced details for its upcoming 65-inch and 77-inch 4K OLED TVs. The 65EC9700 will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $9,999 and the 77EG9700 will be available in November for a suggested retail price of $24,999.
"LG 4K OLED TV is a technological achievement that will set a new standard for the way consumers think of picture quality", said Tim Alessi, Director of New Product Development for LG Electronics USA. "OLED on its own has already been hailed as the best screen technology on the market. Combining the stunning capabilities of this technology with the higher resolution of Ultra HD is a true game-changer – it will reshape the industry and leave consumers simply amazed."
The 77EG9700 and 65EC9700 feature advanced 3840 x 2160 curved-screen OLED panels that use LG's proprietary Four-Color Pixel WRGB technology. Thanks to the televisions' self-lighting pixels, the displays offers superior black levels and contrast over traditional LCD TVs. Likewise, the sets offer fast response times for smooth motion free of flickering and blurring. In addition, each model includes smart TV support with LG's webOS platform and LG’s multi-channel Ultra Surround sound system developed in conjunction with Harmon Kardon.
Both models are currently on display at the CEDIA Expo in Denver. These new Ultra HD OLED displays now join LG's currently available 1080p OLED collection -- including the 55EC930, the 55EA9800, and the 55EA8800.
