Curved LG OLED 4K television apparently shipping in September
Just days after LG put its 105-inch curved Ultra HD television up for pre-order, it appears the electronics producer is preparing to do the same with a smaller model. The 65EC9700, a 65-inch Ultra HD curved television using OLED will apparently start shipping sometime in September, with a price tag far below its 105-inch counterpart.
According to Geek.com, the 65-inch TV will have a recommended retail price of $9,000, though it will apparently be available for as low as $7,000. Though down from the $117,000 price its larger stablemate has, the cost is still relatively high, with the OLED aspect seemingly raising the price by about $2,000 in comparison to non-OLED equivalents, though it apparently offers a better overall image.
Using the Tru-Ultra HD Engine for upscaling and offering passive 3D viewing, the television includes Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, four HDMI ports, three USB, Miracast and MHL support, and a four-channel 40-Watt speaker system. Its smart TV features includes Internet streaming, and comes supplied with LG's motion-control Magic Remote.
