August 27, 2013
LG has confirmed the availability of its Curved OLED TV in Germany, becoming the first TV maker to bring advanced OLED TV technology to European customers. The OLED TV will be sold at select retailers across the country starting this week and will roll out in other European markets in the fourth quarter.
“LG is fully committed to delivering the most advanced OLED TVs to European customers,” said In-kyu Lee, vice president and head of the TV division at LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company. “With next generation display technology and an ultra-thin curved design, our Curved OLED TV represents the beginning of a new era in home entertainment.”
The OLED TV will be introduced to German customers at a special event at electronics retailer HIFI Profis in Frankfurt. The one-of-a-kind TV in Germany will carry a suggested price of €8,999. Prices in other European markets will be announced at launch time.
Meanwhile, Samsung has announced that its first curved OLED TV, the S9C, will be available to buy in the UK from September 5th.
Samsung claims that, as well as offering amazing picture quality and sharper colour contrast, the S9C is the first TV to feature Multi View capabilities, meaning two people can watch completely different full-screen Full-HD (or 3D) content on the same display/
Samsung has yet to disclose pricing details, but the set is priced at $10,000 (£6,500) in the US.
