LG Announces its First Flat Screen OLED TV

Posted Tue Sep 3, 2013 at 09:00 AM PDT by

Joining its recently released curved screen display, LG will be showing off a new flat screen OLED in Germany later this week.

LG has revealed details on its latest 55-inch OLED display. Unlike its currently available 55EA9800 curved screen TV, the new 55EA8800 will feature a more traditional flat screen design that enables wall mounting.

The set also comes with LG's new Canvas Speakers. The 2.2 audio system offers powerful sound and is elegantly hidden in the TV's art frame inspired bezel.

Like its curved screen counterpart, the display uses OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology and comes complete with full 1080p resolution and LG's proprietary WRGB four-color pixel system. In addition, the television includes a special Gallery Mode that enables users to view HD images of famous paintings by artists like Van Gough, or personal photos in a digital slideshow.

Exact pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but the Gallery OLED will be on sale in Germany later this month, and will then expand to other markets. Full details are expected to be released at the IFA trade show in Berlin later this week where the TV will be on display.
