The Ultra HD OLED displays will go on sale this week.
LG has announced that its highly anticipated 4K OLED TVs will make their US retail debut at Video & Audio Center in Santa Monica, CA. The 65-inch and 77-inch displays will go on sale during a special launch event being held at the store on October 2.
The 77EG9700 and 65EC9700 feature advanced 3840 x 2160 curved-screen OLED panels that use LG's proprietary Four-Color Pixel WRGB technology. Thanks to the televisions' self-lighting pixels, the displays offers superior black levels and contrast over traditional LCD TVs. Likewise, the sets offer fast response times for smooth motion free of flickering and blurring. In addition, each model includes smart TV support with LG's webOS platform and LG’s multi-channel Ultra Surround sound system developed in conjunction with Harmon Kardon.
Video & Audio Center's LG event will kick off at 5:30 pm on October 2 with a worldwide press conference, and will then continue at their Santa Monica Store from 6 - 8:30pm. The 65EC9700 will be available for a suggested retail price of $9,999 and the 77EG9700 will be available for a suggested retail price of $24,999. Both models will expand to more stores later this month. These new Ultra HD OLED displays now join LG's currently available 1080p OLED collection -- including the 55EC930, the 55EA9800, and the 55EA8800.
