LG's Dolby Vision-enabled 'Super UHD TVs' to start at $1800

14 Mar 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG will release its first TVs with Dolby Vision support later this month, the company has confirmed. The three new UH9500, UH8500 and UH7700 series are premium LCD TVs. Prices start at $1800.

With Dolby Vision and HDR10 support

The “Super UHD TVs” were first unveiled at CES 2016 in January and LG will start selling them in stores later this month. The TVs use a combination of 4K resolution, HDR, and a wide color gamut to elevate picture quality.


LG is not going as far as stating it outright but it is clear that the South Korean company deliberately has chosen the “Super UHD” moniker as a way to upset its home-town rival. Samsung has continuously tried to talk down LG’s OLED technology while promoting its own so-called “SUHD” TVs that are LCD TVs with quantum dot technology.

- ”Leading the way with HDR, LG continues to pioneer picture quality innovation in both our OLED and LED UHD TVs. With our new LG SUPER UHD TV lineup, we're delivering our best 4K LED TVs yet offering consumers a superior viewing experience with four times the resolution of Full HD, over a billion rich colors and elevated brightness, along with the first available complete HDR experience,” said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "LG SUPER UHD TVs are the first to be compatible with all HDR formats for images that come to life as never before along with access to the most HDR content choices.”

LG says that the new TVs will be the “first to hit market with HDR support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10”. An update that enables Dolby Vision capabilities will be pushed out to the TVs in April, says LG. The TVs also support the open HDR10 format, “making them the first sets compatible with all HDR formats currently available”, according to the company.

HDR streaming via webOS 3.0

All of the TVs are based on 10-bit IPS LCD panels. Quantum dot technology enables them to reproduce a wider color gamut for more true-to-life colors. The speakers have been developed in partnership with Harman Kardon.


The TVs come equipped with webOS 3.0 for easy access to streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and more. LG has also announced that the new TVs will be the first to support Dolby Vision from Amazon once the company starts offering content in Dolby Vision. LG adds that the TVs are slimmer than ever, saying that 65UH9500 measures just 6.6 millimeters at its thinnest point

Three series, a total of nine models in 55- to 86” sizes, will be available. UH8500 and UH7700 will be available to buy in the US this month. UH9500 will hit stores later this spring. Prices below.
