If you’re in the market for a new television, you may want to hold of if you can – the new-for-2015 models are on their way. Today, LG unveiled details about its coming lineup of Ultra HD televisions, boasting revised designs, faster loading times for the webOS 2.0 smart TV platform and even better picture quality.
One noteworthy new feature in LG’s 2015 Ultra HDTVs is the company’s Wide Color LED technology, which boasts greater color depth and a 25 percent increase in the color gamut. Its new Quantum Dot technology, meanwhile, boosts the color gamut by 30 percent. When combined with the company’s True Black Control local dimming technology that creates deeper blacks, every pixel of these 3840 x 2160 televisions is designed to look its best, even when looking at standard HD content.
LG’s new 4K televisions are also getting noticeably thinner thanks to these new LED technologies. The cabinet depths on these televisions can be measured in millimeters, similar to OLED TV models. Even the televisions’ bezels have been slimmed and streamlined for a “modern touch” – no small feature given how ugly LG’s plastic television bezels have been in the past.
If you’re considering buying one of LG’s new Ultra HD televisions, note that the technology still carries a significant premium given how limited your 4K viewing options are. The company's 2014 lineup of 4K TVs start at $1,699. LG has yet to announce pricing and sizing for its new models.
More details on these new television models will be forthcoming at CES 2015, the giant consumer electronics show being held in Las Vegas starting on January 6. We’ll keep you updated if there’s any other news about these models – or any other new, eye-catching 4K models.
