LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV lands locally

Today marks the local debut of the LG 55EA9800 or more commonly known in the tech circuit as LG’s very own Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV with a curved display panel.

Although most of the hype about the 55EA9800 revolves around its arched screen, there’s actually more to this TV than most people gives it credit for.

A closer inspection of the hardware reveals an outlandishly thin profile which only measures 4.3mm on the sides. Understandably, a portion of the carbon-fiber back panel is a bit bulky as this is where the TV’s plethora of ports and other components are placed.

The whole assembly sits on top of a curved transparent stand that complements the overall design of the LG 55EA9800. On each end of the stand is a pair of 40W speakers which works in unison with the other six speakers on this beast.



Of course the LG 55EA9800’s strongest suit is its 55-inch, 1080p display panel which is just as outstanding as the body that holds it in place. What sets it apart from its contemporaries is that it utilizes WRGB pixel system, allowing it to deliver richer colors and be ultra-thin in the process.

Along with the other perks that comes with being a Smart TV, the LG 55EA9800 also comes with a fancy remote control with voice recognition feature and Flicker-Free 3D glass to make use of TV’s 3D functionality.

Spending almost half a million on a living room centerpiece is pretty hard to justify and it isn’t a luxury that most of us have. But judging from what we saw with the LG 55EA9800 during the launch, we have to say that this well-crafted piece of equipment, both physically and visually, is currently the best TV money can buy.
