CES 2017: LG unveils the world’s thinnest TV


The latest 4K OLED TVs have been unveiled by LG at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.

These impressive televisions offer far more than just a “brighter and better viewing experience”.

Several sets were revealed by the South Korean company with the Signature W7 OLED TV stealing the show.

Unbelievably, the TV has a 2.57mm thick screen making it the thinnest TV on the market.

Thanks to its unique design, the TV can be clipped onto walls using magnets which, given its size, means that it sits almost flush with the wall. LG say that the new model gives the impression of “gazing out of a window”.

Despite the incredibly thin design the TV still packs plenty of new technology to improve the viewers visual experience. This includes the latest 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) viewing experience which is 25% brighter than previous models.

HDR doesn’t add extra pixels to make the image look richer but it does make images with varying lights and darks and more realistic. Active HD enables LG TVs to process the picture frame by frame, inserting dynamic data where required.

To compliment the fantastic images, LG has included Dolby Atmos compatible sound that can give sound a 3D effect when you are watching movies – an effect that is being used in the lasted films such as Star Wars Rogue One.

The webOS smart TV platform has also been updated with LG partnering with Netflix, Amazon and the BBC so there will be plenty of access to on demand content.

Brian Kwon, president and CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Company said: “With Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos integrated tightly into our newest OLED products, viewers will be able to recapture the magic of the cinema and experience their favourite movies with their original clarity, depth and imagination intact.

“The stunning new TVs on display at CES this week demonstrate our commitment to innovation and leadership in OLED and the premium TV market globally.”

As yet, no release date or price has been announced but this is expected in the forthcoming weeks.
