LG Electronics has introduced the first curved OLED TV for sale to customers in the US. First unveiled at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, LG’s curved OLED TV (Model 55EA9800) will be available exclusively at Best Buy.
“We are fully committed to bringing next generation technologies to the global market,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company. “The next-generation display technology and the advanced ultra-thin curved design in the LG curved OLED TV represents a new era in home entertainment. It must be seen to be believed.”
Global demand for OLED TV is expected to grow to more than 7 million units by 2016, according to DisplaySearch. LG is the first company to commercialise both the flat screen OLED TV, which went on sale in Korea in January, and the new curved OLED TV, which began sales in Korea in April. Availability of the curved OLED TV in other markets will be announced at a later date.
