The tech industry has been abuzz about 4K video, HDR and OLED screen technology and this year’s CES offerings are showing that these are being more widely adopted. There’s even a new 8K TV by LG. But before we get ahead of ourselves with that many pixels, LG also just announced its 65B6 Flat OLED 4K HDR TV, which has an incredibly skinny screen—just 2.7mm thick—and all the picture advancements of the last few years combined.
How was LG able the manufacture a screen so thing? They put all of the electronics into a separate box.
In addition to that, the 65B6 has LG’s ColorPrime Plus technology that display 1.07 billion colors (can you even imagine that many colors?). Because it employs the high dynamic range — AKA “HDR” — there’s even more contrast in the TV’s picture. All of these technologies combined create best-in-class picture quality viewable from almost any angle.
On top of all the fancy screen tech, the 65B6 also has HDMI 2.0a ports instead of HDMI 1.4 ports, which are needed to process information-heavy 4K signals that have all of that increased pixel data.
LG’s 65B6 also comes standard with the company’s newest iteration of an operating system, webOS 3.0, which was announced last month. WebOS 3.0 adds controls for smart home appliances, free content from Bloomberg Politics, BuzzFeed and the Wall Street Journal and more publications, as well as a Magic Remote that acts as a universal remote for broadcast, streaming and external video sources.
There’s no price or release info on the 65B6 yet, and although LG has been drastically cutting its prices on its OLED TVs, but we're betting this model may still be pretty expensive.
