CES 2017: LG launches ultra-thin Signature 4K OLED W series TV

56343594LG has launched a new flagship-class 4K TV series at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dubbed Signature TV OLD W, the new 65-inch TV is incredibly thin at just 2.57 mm. There’s also a 77-inch variant that has been launched alongside it.
Due to its ultra-thin design, the company says that the TV has a “wallpaper-like” panel. The display itself can be mounted to the wall using magnets and almost sits flush with the background.
What’s interesting about the Signature TV OLED W series TV is that it’s essentially a two-part construction. One of these is the thin 4K display itself, while other is a 4.2 channel Dolby Atmos-compatible soundbar. The two parts are connected by a single cable. It’s this soundbar that has all the connectivity ports for hooking up the TV to external devices. All major connectivity options such as Wi-Fi and HDCP-compliant HDMI are also there.
LG’s W Series TVs are compatible with multiple versions of HDR, in addition to supporting Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG).
The new TVs are powered by version 3.5 of LG’s Web OS smart TV platform. As per a report on The Verge website, the company said that it has partnered with streaming video content providers such as Netflix, Amazon Video and Vudu to highlight 4K and HDR content on the interface.
As of now, there’s no word available regarding the pricing or availability of LG’s new Signature TV OLED W series TV.
In related news, LG unveiled its line-up of portable audio products ahead of CES 2017. The company showcased SJ9 sound bar, SJ8 sound bar, SJ7 Sound Bar Flex and Loudr CJ98 sound system.
