LG Curved OLED TVs up for Pre-order
Samsung and LG have been taking jabs at each other for years and CES 2013 was no different — both announcing the “World’s First Curved OLED TV” within minutes of each other. Well it seems like LG beat Sammy to the punch this time. LG stated the 55″ curved OLED TV (55EA9800) will launch next month with early shipments beginning in early June.
The 55EA9800, is a beautiful curved OLED TV measuring only 4.3mm thick and weighs only 17kg thanks to a carbon fiber frame. For those who are unaware of the benefits of having a curved screen, the curve actually increases the range of the ‘sweetspot’ for the viewer. It does not come cheap though. Expect to pay a few grand more than the OLED TVs released a couple months earlier.
Pre-orders start today at over 1,400 retail locations for a staggering $13,500.
