LG will start mass producing a 49-inch Ultra HD IPS panel in early 2014, according to DigiTimes. LG will also start mass production of its 55 and 65â€ť Ultra HD panels in a few months.
LG to bring 4K resolution to 49" panels in early 2014
The first Ultra HD TVs we saw were 84â€ť mammoths and in the recent months TV makers have unveiled or launched 65 and 55â€ť Ultra HD TVs. In early 2013, LG will push Ultra HD / 4K resolution downwards into sub-50â€ť panels with the introduction of a 49â€ť panel, says DigiTimes.
LG has announced three Ultra HD TVs so far, 84, 65 and 55 inch variants
LG has released its 84â€ť TV in limited quantities but has yet to release its 65â€ť and 55â€ť Ultra HD TVs. According to the same source, LG will start mass production of the 65 and 55â€ť panels in August or September.
LG produces LCD panels for its own TVs but also sells LCD panels to other TV makers for use in consumer TVs. If LG starts producing 49â€ť Ultra HD panels in early 2014 there is a good chance that we will see 49â€ť Ultra HD TVs from several TV makers.
