LG’s 55-inch curved OLED TV arriving in first week of December

LG Curved OLED TV Philippines

The world’s first ever curved OLED television, made by LG, is set to be released in the Philippines in the first week of December. The 55-inch EA9800 model is specifically the one that is slated to be launched in the country. At only 4.3mm thick (should I say thin), it is as thick as the size of three credit cards, and one-fourth of conventional TVs. If that’s not enough to blow your mind, it is thinner than most flagship smartphones today (the thinnest smartphone is at around 6mm). Come to think of it. The LG OLED TV weighs at less than 17 kilograms.

A carbon fiber-reinforced plastic back is used to further strengthen the unit, and transparent speakers are embedded along the crystal-like stand. LG’s WRGB tech adds white sub-pixel in addition to the traditional red-green-blue setup to enhance colors and contrast. It also features a wide-angle display and includes the Smart TV capabilities and Cinema 3D features such as 2D to 3D conversion.

"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."
