LG OLED TV Silicon Valley event

Aug 27, 2014
Yesterday, we were invited and attended LG Electronics’ OLED TV event in Silicon Valley, California. It’s a good event to meet with LG’s OLED TV people and networking with other analysts and media.
LG demonstrated two curved 55” OLED TVs, the new 2014 model: 55EC9300, which is just become available in BestBuy stores in US this week. You can buy it now for $3499, that is only 23% of last year’s OLED TV price!
LG put the curved OLED TVs side by side with two curved 55” 4K LED backlight LCD TVs from Samsung.

LG also indicated their 4K OLED TV is coming soon to US market. (We had detail analysis of 4K OLED TV in our “Touch and Emerging Display” January 2014 report.)
We discussed with LG’s managers about the power consumption and the OLED TV in China market. More pictures and analysis will be found in our “Touch and Emerging Display” September 2014 report.
