The world’s first Curved OLED TV, pioneered by LG Electronics, is set to launch in the Philippines on the first week of December 2013.
This signifies a triple crown for LG in “world’s first” TV technology, which started with the world’s first LG 84-inch Ultra HD TV. Shortly after came the global reveal of the LG 55-inch LG OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TV. And finally, LG upped the ante with its 60-inch Curved OLED TV, a groundbreaking innovation which promises the immersive IMAX experience in the comfort of the viewer’s home.
Unparalleled Design and Picture Quality
The world’s first LG Curved OLED TV (model EA9800) heralds a new paradigm of display shape and quality, based on natural human sight and vision. After over five years of extensive research, LG was the first to attempt ergonomical design for human comfort, which has been recognized by international award-giving bodies such as the Red Dot Design Award.
At only 4mm (approximately three credit cards), the TV’s width is at least one-fourth the width of a conventional TV. Unlike LCD displays, backlights are not needed, reducing power consumption and distortions even at extreme angles.
The LG Curved OLED TV is only 16.3kg light and has a Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) to add additional strength to the beautifully curved screen. LG provides a wall mount (LG 55EA9800) specifically for the TV and includes the world’s first transparent film-type speakers in the crystal clear stand, providing high-quality sound without compromising the TV’s seamless design.
Picture quality is enhanced with LG’s unique WRGB technology, a Four-Color Pixel system that features a white sub-pixel and works in conjunction with the conventional RGB setup to create deeper and richer colors. Complementing this is LG’s built-in Color Refiner and Infinite Contrast Ratio for greater tonal enhancement and optimal contrast levels in any brightness or viewing angle.
To complete the balance of aesthetic beauty and comfort, the LG Curved OLED TV incorporates the company’s industry-leading Cinema 3D technology with Smart TV capabilities.
Initial Local Reviews
Prior to the product’s official release in the country, local tech experts were invited to a sneak peek of the LG Curved OLED TV at Black Sheep Penthouse, W Fifth Avenue, Bonifacio Global City. Attendees were able to experience first-hand the most advanced TV technology to date through an enlightening product presentation, demonstration, and open forum.
“LG is looking forward to launching the world’s first Curved OLED TV in the Philippines,” Hoony Bae, vice president of LG Electronics Philippines’ Home Entertainment division, shared. “Being a progressive country, the local market will surely enjoy getting a feel of the next generation TV technology, allowing optimal TV viewing experience, comfort, and entertainment. LG will continue to establish innovations like this that will ultimately benefit the consumer.”
