LG Electronics used CES to announce its 2016 line of 4K HDR-enabled OLED TVs led by its flagship 77- and 65-inch class G6 and 65- and 55-inch class E6 models.
The entire lineup consists of eight new models in flat and curved configurations and various sizes, all combining the superior performance of OLED’s revolutionary display technology with 4K Ultra HD resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) capability.
LG’s entire OLED line is expected to be among the industry’s first to be certified as “Ultra HD Premium,” meeting the stringent premium performance requirements just released by the UHD Alliance.
“Our 2016 OLED TV lineup features a long list of innovations, such as Picture-on-Glass design and HDR Pro, which are featured prominently in the G6 and E6 models,” said Brian Kwon, President and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “By upping our OLED TV game every year, we are driving innovation in the TV space so that more consumers will see and hear about the benefits of owning an OLED TV. We think 2016 will be a game changing year for this category.”
Top-of-the-line LG OLED TVs come equipped with a unique sound bar speaker system. Developed in partnership with high-end audio pioneer harman/kardon, the LG G6 and E6 feature front-firing sound bar speakers. With the speakers pointing forward, not downward like many thin TVs, viewers will hear clean, detailed audio without any distortion or reflection. The sound bar system is equipped with extra woofers to bolster the power of the speakers, setting LG OLED TVs apart from other TVs.
The entire 2016 OLED TV lineup features the newest generation of LG’s acclaimed webOS Smart TV platform. With webOS 3.0 advanced new features make finding and switching between LG’s expanded content options – including broadcast TV, streaming services and external devices – simple and fast. With enhanced mobile connectivity, remote features and more content options – including those offering streaming HDR, LG webOS 3.0 makes it even simpler and more fun than ever for users to find and enjoy the content they want to watch.
