1. LG unveils latest range of TVs. LG Electronics (LG) introduced its 2017 lineup of OLED, SUPER Ultra High-definition (SUPER UHD), and UHD 4K TVs. The new OLED and SUPER UHD TVs are embedded with cutting-edge technology and renowned colour science expertise from Technicolor, the same technology used in premium Hollywood productions. Winning the prestigious 2017 CES “Best of Innovations” award in the 77-inch class, the unique design of the LG SIGNATURE W7 features sleek razor-thin profile that makes the TV appear to be levitating in mid-air. The G7 series is another work of art. Its Picture-on-Glass design places the slim, flexible, lightweight OLED panel against a simple pane of glass for a sculptural and modern design.

Being the first in the world to offer Dolby Atmos, the 2017 lineup of LG OLED TVs offers content with both state-of-the-art sound technologies and cutting-edge imaging. Besides the W7 and G7 series, the 2017 lineup of LG OLED TVs will also include a 55- and 65-inch E7 as well as 55- and 65-inch C7. LG’s SUPER UHD TVs, such as SJ957T, SJ950T, and SJ850T, are buoyed by Nano Cell technology. Meanwhile, LG UHD 4K TVs offer resolution that is four times higher than HDTV’s.

LG’s 2017 lineup of OLED, SUPER UHD, and 4K UHD TVs all features Active HDR for displaying next-generation HDR content designed to render brighter scenes and greater shadow detail. Visit this link to know more about LG TVs.
