LG has announced the pricing and immediate availability of its flagship 8K sets.
The more headline-grabbing of the two is the 88-inch LG Signature 8K OLED, the world’s first 8K OLED display. This retails for a staggering US$29,999 (€27,107). The TV boasts the fact that it is also the largest OLED TV ever.
What is likely to be the more consumer-friendly of the sets is the 75-inch LG 8K NanoCell TV, which retails for a slightly more reasonable US$4,999 (€4,517).
The company says that both sets are designed to exceed industry standards.
Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA said: “Over the past six years, LG has led the rise of OLED TV to the absolute pinnacle of the TV world in terms of picture quality, design and innovation.
“Today, LG elevates OLED TV to yet another level with the debut of the world’s first 8K OLED TV and in the largest OLED screen size to date. Even more importantly, we’re delivering real 8K across LG OLED and NanoCell models in a way that consumers will be able to truly see the stunning detail that 8K resolution delivers.”
Both models also support Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit, and come with built-in versions of Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
