LG Announces US Availability for Super Thin OLED TV

Not too long ago LG announced that it would be offering its 55-inch OLED TV within its home country of Korea in early February. Based purely on the exchange rate, the price for that TV was going to be around $10,000 in the US. LG has now officially announced that its OLED TV will be coming to the US.

The official US price for 55-inch WRGB OLED TV in the United States will be $11,999. The TVs insanely thin and only 4 mm thick and weighs 22 pounds. The TV uses LG's four-color pixel system that adds a white sub pixel along with the red, blue, and green pixels commonly found in TVs.

The TV also has an infinite contrast ratio allowing for optimal levels of contrast regardless of ambient light. The TV also promises wide viewing angles. LG will begin shipping the expensive TV in March and the viewable image is 54.6-inches.

Sony Open - Day 15
With numerous smartphone makers launching flagship devices this season, it is easy to overlook the fact that Sony's Xperia Z2 comes just seven months after the Xperia Z1.This probably explains why they both look so alike. Tempered glass front and rear glass panels, side buttons, as well as USB, microSD and sealable SIM card slots (so that they can resist dust and moisture) all look similar.It is hard to tell them apart when they are put side by side. The Z2, with its slightly lar ...
