LG has just unveiled the world’s first full LED 3D TV, the LX9500, in Korea. This means thinner 3D TVs (22.3mm) with a millionth in contrast ratios and higher response rates than the regular 3D TVs you’ve been seeing in malls and concept stores.
The LG LX9500 LED 3D TV will be sold under the Infinia series with sizes in the 47 and 55 inches.
Here’s the complete specs sent in by LG yesterday:
3D TV (shutter glasses type)
Full HD 1080p
Full LED Slim with Spot Control (Local Dimming)
INFINIA Design: Ultra Slim Depth, Narrow Bezel, Uni-layer, Uni-color
10,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
TruMotion 400Hz (480Hz)
Picture Wizard II
Crystal Gradation with Varying Light (Facet)
Invisible Speaker (10W + 10W + 5W)
Clear Voice II
NetCast ( Broadband TV )
Skype (Video Call Function with optional Video Camera)
Wireless AV Link
DLNA ready (with optional DLNA Dongle)
USB 2.0 (HD DivX, MP3, JPEG play, MPO)
Smart Energy Saving Plus
Unlike the previous LED TVs where the lighting comes from the sides (edge-type), the Infinia LX9500 series is fully backlit with as many as 1,200 LEDs on the 55″ model.
These will be initially available in Korea, then North America, Europe and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) in May 2010. There’s no mention of Asia but the release states “other key markets” so I am not sure if that includes the Philippines.
As for the price, it’s not official yet but it could be north of 4.7 million Korean Won (USD $4,100) just for the 47″ model.
* CIS – formerly the Soviet Republics
