LG reveals prices for 2017 "Super UHD" LCD TVs

24 Feb 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG has revealed release details for its new 55 to 86-inch high-end LCD TVs that the company has dubbed “Super UHD”. The SJ8500 series will start at $1999 dollars.

Last year, LG rebranded its high-end LCD TVs to “Super UHD”, which sounds a lot like Samsung’s “SUHD”. This year, Samsung rebranded its high-end LCD TVs to “QLED”, which similarly sounds a lot like LG’s OLED. The difference, of course, is that “QLED” is LCD.

Nevertheless, LG hopes that a “dual premium strategy” will enable the company to overtake arch rival Samsung. In the premium segment LG will sell both OLED and LCD TVs. The company explains that it has developed a new “nano cell” structure that help improve picture quality on the LCD displays.

LG has announced pricing and availability details for the SJ8500 and SJ9000 models. The price for a 55” TV starts at $1999. At CES in January, LG also announced a more affordable SJ8000 but the company has yet to reveal pricing details for this model.

LG has also revealed prices for most of the 2017 OLED TVs.

The SJ8500 range will launch in February and the SJ9500 range will follow in March.

Prices:
55” LG SJ8500 - $1,999
65” LG SJ8500 - $2,799
75” LG SJ8500 - $3,699
65” LG SJ9500 - $3,999
86” LG SJ9500 - $7,999
