The world’s first Curved OLED TV from LG is now in the Philippines! After five years of research, it was recently unveiled in a media launch at Black Sheep Penthouse in Metro  Manila.

Gadget Gambit was among those who had a first-hand experience with the most advanced TV technology to date. The experience was complemented with a product presentation, demonstration, and open forum.

Trailblazing its predecessors – world’s first LG 84-inch Ultra HD TV and Organic Light Emitting Diode LG 55-inch LG OLED TV – LG upped the ante with its 60-inch Curved OLED TV. It’s a groundbreaking innovation which promises an immersive IMAX experience even from home.

Ergonomics & Design

Specifically the model EA9800, the LG Curved OLED TVacknowledged the natural human sight and vision, hence thecurved shape. With a width of 4mm (approximately three credit cards), it is just about one-fourth the width of a conventional TV.

Moreover, backlights are not needed as common with LCD displays. This effectively reduces power consumption. Furthermore, it reduced distortions even at extreme angles as well.

At a weight of only 16.3kg, the curved screen of the LG OLED TV was made durable at the same time with a Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP).

As an option, LG also provides a specific wall mount (LG 55EA9800) which includes the world’s first transparent film-type speakers on a crystal clear stand.

Picture Quality

Picture quality is enhanced with LG’s unique WRGB technology, a Four-Color Pixel system that features a white sub-pixel and works in conjunction with the conventional RGB setup. This creates deeper and richer colors for better viewing experience.

In addition, it has built-in Color Refiner and Infinite Contrast Ratio technology from LG to address tonal enhancement and optimal contrast levels in different brightness or viewing angle.

Finally, the LG Curved OLED TV incorporates the company’s industry-leading Cinema 3D technology with Smart TV capabilities.

LG Electronics Philippines’ Home Entertainment Division VP Hoony Bae highlighted that LG is excited for its “…optimal TV viewing experience, comfort, and entertainment.” He added that “LG will continue to establish innovations like this that will ultimately benefit the consumer.
