At this year’s CES, we were wowed by curved OLED HDTV prototypes showcased by LG. Now, the Korean TV manufacturer has announced in a recent press release that consumers can expect the LG 55EA9800 to launch this month, with shipments starting in June 2013.
What we have heard is thanks to a carbon-fibre reinforced frame, the awesome looking TV weighs 17kg with a mere depth of 4.3mm. Built to resemble an IMAX theater screen, the edges of this TV are curved towards the viewer to provide a more immersive feeling.
Pre-orders have already started at more than 1,400 retail locations with a price tag of 15 million Korean won (approximately US$13,500).
Certainly a machine to look out for!
