This year’s Consumer Electronics Show will be the moment TV manufacturers will go all-in on HDR as they did the same for 4K last year. So, LG has decided to unveil some of the first details about its 2016 TV lineup in the coming CES 2016. The Korean tech giant is going to reveal three of its new LCD 4K TVs along with its first production-grade 8K model, UH9800.
LG’s three new 4K LCD models- UH7700, UH8500, and UH9500-mediate a “True Black” panel to cut the glare and improve contrast. They also come with a contrast maximize option and their sizes range from 49 to 86 inches. Both the UH8500 and UH9500 mediate Color Prime Plus, which uses a new filter to try and replicate cinema-quality color with the company’s Ultra Luminance Technology. If you are a bit design conscious, then UH9500 would be a better choice for you as it has an extremely slim (0.22-inch) frame, which manages to squeeze in a powerful Harman/Kardon audio system. However, the CES seems to be incomplete without any ultra-giant displays, so LG is unveiling its 98-inch 8K UH9800 model as well.
All of these models will come with LG’s new webOS 3.0 software that is going to be debuted next week. HDR requires some content, just like 4K, to make it something the consumer can actually enjoy. Thanks to Netflix, YouTube and Amazon as because of them you can see the faster adoption of 4K. LG is not going to disclose the price right now. Hopefully, there will be more details about those products in the press conference that starts at 8AM PT, January 4th. Stay tuned for more updates.
