The company's most advanced LED TVs will be available starting this month.  

After making their debut at CES back in January, LG has announced pricing and availability for its new SUPER UHD TV lineup. The collection consists of three series -- the UH9500, UH8500, and UH7700 -- with nine models ranging in size from 55 inches to 86 inches.

"Leading the way with HDR, LG continues to pioneer picture quality innovation in both our OLED and LED UHD TVs. With our new LG SUPER UHD TV lineup, we're delivering our best 4K LED TVs yet offering consumers a superior viewing experience with four times the resolution of Full HD, over a billion rich colors and elevated brightness, along with the first available complete HDR experience," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "LG SUPER UHD TVs are the first to be compatible with all HDR formats for images that come to life as never before along with access to the most HDR content choices."

The UH9500, UH8500 and UH7700 LCD/LED SUPER UHD TVs feature IPS Quantum displays with superior viewing angles and color reproduction. Likewise, the company's new webOS 3.0 smart TV platform is integrated as well. In addition, the displays have been classified as Super HDR, and combine LG's ULTRA Luminance technology, improved black level performance, and Color Prime technology to support 4K high dynamic range content with heightened performance, along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10. HDR and Dolby Vision streaming content will be available from partners like Amazon, Netflix, and VUDU.
