LG New Ultra HD TVs

LG have increased their lineup of ULtra HD TVs to 16 models, more than doubling their lineup with their latest releases.

Their latest 4K Ultra HDTVs will be available fourth quarter this year and range from 40-inches all the way up to 105-inches. Along with a wise size range, there is also a very wide price range. From just $999, all the way up to $99,999.99. Yes you did read that right! Thats 100 grand. But if money is no object, you really can’t get much more impressive than the 105-inch LG 105UC9!

For the rest of us in the real world, we’re now starting to see decent 4K TVs at very reasonable prices, being able to pick up a major brand Ultra HD TV for just shy of $1000 is great to see.

LG’s latest “entry level” Ultra HDTVs start with the 40-inch LG 40UB8000 at $999, next up is the UB8200 series which runs up to the 60-inch 60UB8200 for $2,499. It’s great to see that LG’s whole range make use of IPS panels for better viewing angles and image quality than non IPS LCD panels. Also they all make use of the latest HDMI standard and include a h.265 decoder.

LG Flexible OLED TV

LG Flexible OLED TV

Just moments after Samsung announced their “Bendable UHD TV” at their press conference at CES 2014, I get press release sent to me email from LG announcing their “worlds first flexible OLED TV”!

We can only assume that LG were hoping to take the wraps off of their flexible / bendable TV tomorrow on the CES 2014 showroom floor, as they didn’t announce it at their press conference early today.

So both Samsung and LG have flexible / bendable TVs, but while Samsung’s is 85-inches LCD and 4K, LG’s is 77-inches, but makes use of the more superior OLED technology.

LG WEBOS 4K Netflix

LG’s New WebOS 4K TVs Support Netflix 4K Streaming

Ever since we first started to see 4K Ultra HDTVs hit the market, the major problem with them has been lack of 4K content.

Well it now looks like LG with its latest WebOS Smart TV platform have teamed up with Netflix to deliver streaming 4K Ultra HD content directly to the TV! This is great news, as of right now there is no 4K physical media format, so streaming seems to the the future.

We’re still waiting on more details, as we’re curious how fast your Internet connection will have to be, and the encoding quality etc.

Last week we posted about LG’s impressive new 2014 4K TV lineup, and how they featured a built in h.265 decoder. This H.264 and HEVC H.265 decoder can play back both 30p and 60p. This is no doubt how is magic is going to be performed.

LG’s 2014 4K Ultra TV Lineup: UB9800, UB9500, UB8500

After taking the wraps off of their huge 105-inch curved 4K ultra HD TV, the LG 105UC9, LG have now revealed the rest of their 4K ultra HD TV lineup, and it’s certainly impressive!

The LG UB9800 series is their premium 4K Ultra HD TV lineup, and comes in four sizes, as the 65-inch LG 65UB9800, 79-inch 79UB9800, 84-inch 84UB9800, and the huge 98-inch LG 98UB9800.

All the models in the UBB9800 series feature a “unique proprietary chip” which along with LG’s latest Tru-ULTRA HD Engine Pro enhances the Ultra HD resolution quality and image quality. An upgraded Super Resolution Algorithm provides improved upscalling quality by eliminating common visual errors found in other upscaling systems. 4K Motion estimation motion compensation (MENC) eliminates motion blur and “ensures that 4L content appears lifelike”.

We’re very pleased to hear that the UB9800 4K series have a built in 4K HEVCX 60p decoder.

LG 77EC9800

LG’s 2014 OLED Lineup Announced

As we draw closer and closer to CES 2014, LG are gradually letting out more exciting information on their latest products which they’ll be showing off in Vegas!

A couple of weeks ago, they announced their huge, and we mean hugggge 105-inch 4K curved TV, today, they have taken the wraps off of an exciting new OLED TV line up.

LG have announced that they will be showing off the LG 77EC9800, a 77-inch curved 4K ultra OLED HD TV, along with new 55-inch and 65-inch OLED TV models. They will also have an “elegant” 55-inch Gallery OLED TV model (the LG 55EA8800) along with a new environmentally friendly 55-inch curved OLED TV, the LG 55EB9600, and the 55-inch 55EC9300 curved OLED TV.

The new models make use of LG’s proprietary WRGB OLED technology, along with a 4K (3840 x 2160 pixel) resolution, with increased viewer immersion, filling the viewer’s field of vision thanks to its curved screen.

The 77-inch LG 77EC9800 curved 4K OLED screen has a leaf shaped stand, and has already received CES 2014’s “Best of Innovations” award.

LG 105UB9

LG 105UC9 105-inch 4K Curved Ultra HDTV

LG have today announced the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio curved Ultra HD TV. This exciting TV was clearly just too exciting for LG to keep under the wraps until CES 2014 at Vegas next month, and they have announced it ahead of the event. The beautiful curved Ultra HD TV will of course be at CES next month where we will be covering it!

The LG 105UB9 has a massive 105-inch ultrawide curved display, and makes it the world’s largest curved TV ever made.

Last year LG and Samsung wowed the world with their 55-inch curved OLED TVs. Since then LG has bought the 55-inch model to market, and has other larger sized models planned, such as their 77-inch 4K curved OLED model.

LG has clearly upped the size game here taking it to a massive 105-inches! We were at first surprised that this model, although curved and boasting a 4K ultra HD resolution actually makes use of an LCD panel rather than an OLED panel as we have previously seen in their curved TVs. LG say that they overcame the challenge of uneven backlighting by refining their Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology, enabling them to make a curved LCD / LED TV.

LG have won 15 awards in the 2014 CES Innovations Awards by CEA.

Every year, a couple of months before CES the CEA reveal their awards for a number of products that exhibitors will be showing off at the upcoming CES. If we’re lucky, sometimes these awards reveal a product that has yet to be announced.

This year looking at LG, they have won the “Best of Innovations” in the video display category for their 77-inch 4K curved OLED TV. This TV was of course revealed back in September at IFA in Berlin, Germany, but has yet to be on display in the U.S.

LG 55LA9650

LG 55LA9650, 65LA9650 Cheaper 4K TVs Announced

LG have announced two new 4K Ultra HDTVs to their growing 4K lineup, the 55-inch LG 55LA9650, and 65-inch 65LA9650. These two new models from the LG LA9650 series come in at a lower price than their existing 4K models of the same size.

This is the same tactic that Sony used roughly a month ago when they announced their 850A series of 4K TVs, which come in at a cheaper price.

With the addition of these new models it increases LG’s 4K offerings to five models (Same number as Sony), including the original 55-inch, 65-inch, and of course their 84-inch 4K. So that’s five models from LG, with the total number of 4K TVs now at 18 at last count.

LG 77-inch UHD OLED TV

LG 77-Inch Curved 4K OLED TV

Just typing that title alone made us super impressed. LG have just announced their 77-inch 4K Ultra HD OLED TV at IFA 2013 in Berlin.

If you have been following the news recently you will know that LG just achieved a number of world firsts with this product. It’s the world’s largest OLED TV, world’s largest 4K Ultra HD TV and also the largest curved TV.

LG really has thrown all they have at this 77-inch OLED TV. We first saw a prototype 4K OLED TV shown off by Sony at CES 2013 back in January, and we called it the holy grail of TVs.

Just yesterday Samsung announced a curved 4K Ultra HD TV, and a 55-inch 4K Ultra HD OLED, but LG has just taken their crown away with their 77-inch curved 4K OLED!
