We now have a glimpse about LG’s 2016 TV lineup, the company will be revealing four super UHD TV sets and the highlight is its first production-ready 8K model, the UH9800. Leading the company’s IPS TV offerings will be the 65-inch UH9500 and 86-inch UH9550 and SUPER UHD TV 65-inch UH8500 and 75-inch UH8550.
There’s not much information about its 98-inch machine, though, the company has plans to begin shipping in the second half of 2016. Both the UH58500 series and the UH9500 series boast ColorPrime Plus for enhanced color reproduction, True Black Panel, and Contrast Maximizer. True Black Panel is a proprietary technology that minimizes reflections and enhances contrast ratio for a more comfortable viewing experience while Contrast Maximizer delivers more depth and contrast by separating objects from their backgrounds.
The high end trim UH9500 series have the ability to render over one billion possible colors. And with support for BT.2020, the next-generation standard for broadcast and distribution, these TV models are future-proof with a higher color reproduction rate. The UH9500 is your pick if you’re design-conscious since it has an extremely slim (0.22-inch) body that manages to cram in a relatively powerful Harman/Kardon audio system. All the LG’s newer TV series should pack webOS 3.0 for their simpler interface.
“We’re confident our newest HDR-enabled SUPER UHD TVs in 2016 will generate much excitement not in the industry, but also with consumers in general,” said Brian Kwon, President, and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “We are the only company with a dual strategy focused on both OLED and IPS TV technologies and this is proof that we are not prioritizing one display over the other.”
