LG is set to capitalise on smaller apartments with the release of a 48″ OLED TV that will be a key part of their 2019 TV offering in the second half of the year.
The Korean Company who expects to sell 10 million OLED TV’s this year will later this week release a new range of OLED and NanoCell TV’s including models with new processors and advanced Google Assistant technology built in.
There has been no indication of when LG will release their new roll up OLED TV in Australia.
The Company has confirmed that they are planning to roll out in the second half of the year 48″ OLED TV which analysts claim could do well in Australia due to the growth in one- and two-bedroom apartments.
At CES LG executives said that they were looking to increase OLED production of OLED TV’s with new sized models set to fuel the growth in production targets.
A 48-inch model would open the market up, while also bringing the price down for OLEDs. The new model is tipped to sell for sub $1,500 complete with Google Voice and a new processor.
LG Display also announced that it will add 65-inch and 77-inch models to its 8K OLED TV range, joining the existing 88-inch OLED.
Later this week LG Australia will roll out the first of their 2019 TV’s that include OLED and NanoCell LCD TVs.
A key component will be an advanced second-generation a (Alpha) 9 Gen 2 intelligent processor and deep learning technology which will see them go head to head with Samsung who is also set to use new processor capability to deliver advanced TV’s.
Later this year LG TV’s will get an upgrade to support Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit along with a major firmware upgrade that will add Amazon Alexa support to complement Google Assistant which is included out of the box.
The unlock key for LG is the new a9 Gen 2 processor which is set to be built into in LG’s W, E and C series of OLED TVs. ChannelNews was recently shown these TV’s side by side with last year’s models.
The display is significantly advanced, and the Google Assistant capability has been expanded significantly especially if you have an LG Meridian soundbar attached to the TV. More
