"Our Curved OLED TV is not only the proof of LG's unmatched leadership in next-generation displays but also a testament to LG's commitment to bringing to market the most exciting TV technology available today," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG's Home Entertainment Company.
The new EA9800 model features the first curved screen ergonomic design, providing an "IMAX-like" viewing experience in the home. The entire screen surface is equidistant from the viewes eyes, eliminating the problem of screen-edge visual distortion and loss of detail.
Only 4.3 millimeters (0.17 inches) thin and weighing just 17 kilograms (37.48 pounds), LG's Curved OLED TV produces vivid and realistic images thanks to its proprietary WRGB technology. The Four-Color Pixel system features a white sub-pixel, which works in conjunction with the conventional red, blue, green setup to create the color output. What's more, LG's Color Refiner delivers tonal enhancement. As in the original flat screen OLED TV, the Curved OLED TV also offers an infinite contrast ratio for optimal contrast levels regardless of ambient brightness or viewing angle.
Finally, LG's Curved OLED TV features thin transparent film speakers in the stand.
Timing and pricing of the Curved OLED TV in markets outside of Korea were not announced yet.
