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.

The 55-inch LG 55LA9650 costs $3,499, while the 65-inch LG 65LA9650 costs $4,999. This means that both the new “cheaper” LG and Sony 55-inch 4K TVs are priced the same at $3.5k, but the 65-inch LG model will costs $500 more than Sony’s offering.
