LG Debuts New “Skinny Frame” Plasmas Overseas

Korea gets first dibs on LG’s new Skinny Frame plasmas, but we’d love to get our hands on these incredibly slim and impressive sets.

The new Skinny Frame plasmas are the newest from LG, and like most LG products, they’re hitting the Korean market first.

The Skinny Frame plasmas come in both fifty inch and sixty inch models. LG’s new sets have the 600Hz refresh rate that’s typical of plasmas, and a 1080p resolution. They’ve got a trio of HDMI ports as well as a USB port for displaying photos and videos.

LG’s plasmas also offer a feature that automatically detects the light and color in the room and adjusts the picture accordingly. Not only does this create a better picture, LG says that it creates a great energy savings as well.

The 50 inch model will sell for the equivalent of $1,500, while the 60 inch model runs a much steeper $3,300.
