LG has just launched its new 65 & 55” Ultra HD TVs and two additional new models will be added shortly. The new LA9650 are “budget” versions of the current TVs and will sell for $1000 US dollars less in 65 and 55 inch sizes.

LG’s LA9650 ditch the motorized 4.1 speaker system for a fixed 2.1 speaker system and LG has also left out the built-in camera. The TV design is slightly different with more pronounced bottom bezel. The new TVs boast the same 3840x2160 pixel resolution.
The changes will result in a $1000 price reduction if we are to believe retailer B&H’s placeholders for the two new models, 55" 55LA9650 and 65" 65LA9650. The current LA9700 models are sold for $7,999 and $5,999 and the new LA9650 will be sold for $6,999 and $4,999 for 65 and 55”, respectively.
