LG goes unique and quirky with some of their TVs for CES 2022
*Updated: 26 January 2022 11am with new details and pricing for the LG StanbyME*
LG has unveiled two new TVs that it plans to showcase at CES 2022. But throw away any thoughts you have of the usual and get ready to embrace the weird and different.
First is the LG StanbyME. Think of it as a pole dancing TV.
Yes, LG has mounted a 27-inch display on a moveable stand with concealed wheels that you can move around. For true mobility, it comes powered with a built-in battery that allows for three hours of viewing before needing to be recharged.
Move the StanbyME around the house to wherever entertainment is needed and enjoy it in both landscape and portrait modes. The viewing height is also adjustable so you can watch it while lying on a bed, or in the kitchen as you cook. And to make it even easier to see what is on the screen, it can be swivelled up to 130-degrees and tilted up to 50-degrees.
Stream content with Mobile Screen Mirroring which works with the latest Android and iOS smartphones and NFC. Or use your laptop and stream using a wired (USB, HDMI) or wireless connection. Users with AirPlay 2 can stream, share, and mirror content from their devices using the Home app, or Siri on iOS devices to control the device remotely.
Streaming services such as Amazon Prime, Facebook Watch, Netflix, YouTube, and Highbrow will come built-in so content is always at hand. Plus image and audio clarity is aided by support for HDR10 Pro and AI Sound.
Second, say hello to the Objet TV. Why have an OLED TV lie flat against the wall when you can have it lean at a 5-degree angle? LG says that this way, your home can have a modern TV that can seamlessly blend into any modern design while hiding the TV.
I think a big thing leaning against the wall would be noticeable almost anywhere, but that's just me.
It also features a fabric-made cover that doesn’t quite cover the whole screen. When partially covered, the screen will display information curated for the user, but when uncovered, the 65-inch OLED evo panel and 80W, 4.2-channel sound system for full entertainment. The covers are interchangeable and the work of Danish textile innovator, Kvadrat LG says,
Pricing and availability
Unfortunately, that is all we have for now. For more information on their specs, pricing and availability, we’ll have to wait until LG’s showcase at CES 2022 at midnight on 5 January.
The LG StanbyME is now available in Singapore for S$1,799 from LG's official stores on KrisShop, Lazada, and Shopee. It can also be found in partners stores like Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, and Harvey Norman.
