LG Electronics having a virtual monopoly on the OLED TV market has mentioned at the CES2017 press conference that the new OLED TV in 2017 is “LG Signature OLED TV W”. The”W” means “Wallpaper TV”.
OLED TV W, which LG Electronics will sell this year, is only 2.57mm thin-unlike LCD TV, there is no back light. In recent years, LCD TVs use direct backlights to increase brightness, and these products are rather thicker.
In order to emphasize that OLED TV W is thin and relatively light enough to be attached on the wall. LG Electronics displays OLED TV W on the glass. The Dolby speakers are installed separately under TV.
LG Electronics’ exhibition hall is filled with more and more OLED TVs, and about 30% of the exhibition room is taken for OLED TVs.
The OLED TV domes such as IFA2016 occupied the last space of the exhibition hall and there was a room where the excellent image quality of OLED TV integrated with HDR technology was introduced.
In the center of the exhibition room, OLED TV W which was introduced at the press conference is being displayed.
As LG Electronics’ OLED TV shown at CES2017 was similar to that of IFA2016 last year, no technical or design-wise novelty was found.
