LG Launches The 65-inch Signature G6 OLED TV Which Is Just 0.33 inches Thick
Promoted in Super Bowl commercial, LG’s latest OLED TV, dubbed the Signature G6, is now available for pre-orders via online retailers in the US, with shipping scheduled to start next month.
The Signature G6 features a 65-inch 4K Ultra HD display, which means it allows for deeper blacks and much greater contrast than conventional LED-backlit LCD sets. Since OLED requires no backlight to illuminate each pixel, the panel is ultra slim having thickness of just one-tenth of an inch, making it look startlingly impressive.
Apart from the 4K OLED display, the latest TV set from LG includes a voice-control remote, as well as a speaker system designed by Harmon/Kardon powered by a 60-watt amplifier. It runs WebOS 3.0 smart-TV software and also offers support for HDR, including both HDR-10 and Dolby Vision.
Further, the Signature G6 bears the new Ultra HD Premium certification, ensuring it is designed to offer exceptional performance which you can’t expect from your average HD TV sets.
LG Electronics USA Vice President of Marketing David Vanderwall said in a statement:
We have had some really unprecedented success in generating a lot of conversation about this OLED television already so we are trying to take advantage of the (TV) selling season, for sure. Right now, we have a window of opportunity to make sure people know about OLED and, by the way, LG is the only brand that had OLED.
The Signature G6 might seem pricey at $8000 US, but considering how difficult it is to produce OLED at scale—especially in larger sizes—anything below $10,000 is pretty reasonable. Moreover, the company is preparing to introduce a 77-inch version in its “Signature” line of products, though it hasn’t yet announced a price for that one.
