LG Electronics USA announced pricing and availability for its 2016 line of OLED TVs including the newly launched curved-panel C6 series. The new OLED TVs add to the companies G6 and E6 OLED TVs that are already available nationwide.
“LG OLED TVs’ reputation for having the best picture available is backed by TV experts, Academy Award-winning directors and consumers alike – and the ultimate home entertainment experience is even better with new enhancements like HDR,” said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Our 2016 OLED TVs combine our most advanced TV technologies with future-forward, stunning designs to elevate the TV experience to an entirely new level. And now, with two HDR formats, content has never looked more immersive or more lifelike.”
LG says its OLED TVs consistently bring viewers what TV experts have called the best picture quality available, and the entire 2016 line can also deliver the best image quality. Uniquely, OLED technology enables each pixel to be on or completely off. The company notes that its OLED TVs flawlessly render crisp, vibrant colors and produce perfect blacks along with rich shadow details even when bright objects are directly next to deep, dark areas. Such contrast is impossible with LCD TVs. The company’s OLED TVs feature 10-bit panels and 10-bit processing power that boasts the ability to render more than a billion possible color variations. A wider color gamut enables LG OLED TVs to display the finest details of color and gradation.
Notably, the OLED’s picture quality holds up even from wide viewing angles. The same cannot be said for most LCD TVs, which suffer from lower contrast and color washout when off-axis. Across all four series, the TVs have extraordinarily narrow bezels, and the OLED panels are extremely thin.
For the first time, the company is releasing a curved OLED TV in the United States. The OLEDC6P curved panel TV comes in 55 inch and 65-inch models. They are priced at $3999 and $5999 respectively.
The company also released the 65-inch model of its Picture-on-Glass OLED TV. The 77-inch version is due out soon.
