"LG continues to pioneer OLED TV technology and bringing this OLED TV to market so quickly after its debut at CES® 2016 underscores LG's commitment to growing the OLED TV category and making it accessible to more households across the U.S. We can't wait for consumers to experience LG OLED TV for themselves."
LG OLED TV is an entirely new category of television that uses a revolutionary technology to deliver exceptional picture quality with perfect blacks and incredible color, even from wide viewing angles. The LG SIGNATURE OLED TV is the company's top-of-the-line OLED TV series for 2016. With a sophisticated OLED panel featuring an exceptionally thin depth (measuring about one-tenth of an inch), a translucent glass back and a powerful, forward-facing sound bar speaker system, it is an outstanding feat of modern engineering and design.
LG SIGNATURE OLED TVs also feature 4K Ultra HD resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) capability. Certified as "ULTRA HD PREMIUM" by the UHD Alliance, the series supports the industry-standard HDR formats established by the world's leading broadcasters, film studios and consumer electronics manufacturers, including HDR10 and DolbyVision™ technology*, making them among the first to be compatible with all formats. Also included is LG's webOS® 3.0 Smart TV platform, which incorporates advanced new features that make finding and switching between LG's expanded content options – including broadcast TV, streaming services and external devices – simple and fast.**
LG's full 2016 OLED TV lineup features four series with eight total models, including the LG SIGNATURE TV (series OLEDG6).
