LG unveils 4K OLEG TV with 33 mn sub-pixels

TV Consumer durables maker LG on Tuesday unveiled it's first 4K OLED TV in India –but at far from affordable prices.

The 55-inch model is priced at Rs3,84,900, while the 65-inch model is priced at Rs5,79,900.

LG's proprietary WRGB screen tech displays 33 million colour sub-pixels 27 million more than regular HDTVs, which means pictures are sharper and have better colorful definition and contrast. And at just 5.9mm, the display is ultra slim.

The TV is powered by WebOS, which adds apps and other smarts and LG throws in a "magic motion remote" that offers voice recognition to presumably let you change channels by just speaking to it. And it also bundles in 3D glasses.

The TV also offers WiFi, Miracast, MHL and Intel WiDi - essentially standards that let you wirelessly fling video and other content from supported phones and other devices directly onto the TV.

The TVs go on sale on all the usual channels in the next few weeks.

LG is betting big on OLED to be the next big wave in mainstream TVs.

The company is estimating a global sales figure of 1 million OLED TVs for 2016 and has earmarked a budget of $8.5 billion for the category.
