LG commences pre-orders for 55-inch curved OLED TV in Korea
LG is putting curved OLED televisions on sale earlier than <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284488==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/18/curved.screen.to.eliminate.image.distortion.to.vie wer/" rel='nofollow'>first thought</a>. The electronics producer is opening up its 55-inch EA9800 to pre-orders in Korea <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284489==http://www.lgnewsroom.com/newsroom/contents/63430" rel='nofollow'>today</a>, with shipments in the country expected in June. The HDTV's release outside of Korea will apparently be announced in the coming months, along with regional pricing. <br />
<br />
Weighing in at 37.5 pounds and at 4.3mm (0.17-inches) thick, not taking into account the curvature itself, the EA9800 provides what is described as an "IMAX-like viewing experience," with the curved screen allowing for the entire display's surface to be equidistant from the viewer's eyes, reducing distortion at the edges and loss of detail. Using a four-color pixel system, it uses an extra white sub-pixel to fine-tune colors, and the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284490==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/18/new.line.in.south.korean.factory.to.produce.tv.pan els/" rel='nofollow'>OLED</a> display is also capable of an "infinite contrast ratio." Thin transparent speakers are incorporated into the clear stand, in order to avoid spoiling the appearance of the curved screen. <br />
<br />
More than 1,400 LG retail stores in South Korea will be taking orders for the curved TV, which is priced at 15 million wong ($13,500). A release in other territories is likely to be at a much higher price.
