LG has announced the addition of 55- and 65-inch UHD (Ultra High Definition) TV models in Singapore, providing consumers with the option of two smaller sizes of televisions with 4K resolution to complement its 84-inch UHD TV.
Sporting Ultra-thin bezels of LG’s Cinema Screen Design, the new TVs deliver at a resolution of 8.3 million pixels per frame, with the Tru-Ultra HD Engine providing exceptional up-scaling, enabling consumers to view any video format in near-ULTRA HD quality. Additionally, LG’s LA9700 models are equipped with NANO Full LED backlighting which results in deeper blacks and consistent brightness and contrast. With the inclusion of LG’s advanced IPS panels, the new TVs deliver accurate color expression across a wide, 178-degree viewing angle.
Both LA9700 models offer a 4.1-channel surround sound system which includes the forward-facing Sliding Speaker. With excellent mid- and high- frequency range performance, the Sliding Speaker can be positioned to remain hidden or visible, delivering excellent sound either way. Alternatively, the Sliding Speaker can be set to extend automatically when the TV is turned on. A powerful subwoofer, located behind the TV screen, ensures strong bass performance.
The LA9700 is the first UHD TV to have in-built H.265 HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Codec) decoding, a compression standard for UHD content. With HEVC decoding, users can play 4K videos directly using external hard drive without the need of a UHD generator or computer.
LG’s intuitive Smart TV platform provides easy access to a wide range of applications and content services, including Magic Remote that boasts natural language recognition, point, wheel, and gesture control options, making it easy to navigate menus, search for content or play exciting Smart TV games. SmartShare offers the simplicity of "Tag On" (LG’s NFC-based device pairing feature), and the convenience of WiDi and Miracast screen mirroring function.
The 55- and 65-inch LG UHD TVs will be retailing for S$6,999 and S$9,999 respectively starting from 20 September.
