LG will release a range of flat and curved 4K OLED TVs in 2015, according to leaked information that appears to be accurate. The OLED line-up includes two flat 65-inch 4K models and one flat 55-inch 4K model.
LG’s 2015 OLED line-up
Model names for LG’s 2015 OLED TVs have been showing up in certification databases in recent weeks but Heron Fidelity claims to know many of the details. LG is said to release six ranges of 55 to 77-inch flat and curved OLED TVs, including a flexible OLED TV.
The existing Full HD EC9300 model will carry over into 2015 but all new models will feature 4K Ultra HD resolution. LG’s new OLED TVs will also use Harman Kardon speaker technology, webOS 2.0, a new Magic Remote, and passive 3D technology.
The supposedly leaked details are available below.
EF9500 55 and 65-inch flat OLED TVs with improved anti-reflective coating, webOS 2.0 and a quad-core processor.
EG9600 Like the EF9500 but with a curved panel.
EG9700 / EC9700 EC9700 has already been announced and was expected to launch in most markets in late 2014. Instead, it will be part of LG’s 2015 line-up as a lower-cost model with webOS 1.0. It will be available in 65 and 77-inch sizes with Ultra HD.
EF9800 A flat 65-inch OLED TV with Ultra HD resolution and an external Harman Kardon soundbar. It also features webOS 2.0, improved anti-reflective coating and a deca-core processor.
EG9900 The is LG’s flagship OLED TV for 2015. It is a 77-inch Ultra HD model that has all the features of the other TVs. The unique twist here is that it is flexible so you can choose whether to use it as a flat or curved screen simply by pressing a button on the remote. This is most likely the same model that LG exhibited at CES last year but in 2015 you will be able to buy one.
CES 2015 starts next week and only then can we confirm whether the leaks are accurate or not. Stay tuned.
