LG Betting Big on OLED TV for 2016

CES 2016 starts this coming week, and it looks like LG will be doubling down on OLED as the next big display technology for the living room. In preparation for the upcoming electronics show, I like to do some preliminary research, and came across numerous LG OLED display models which recently were granted Wi-Fi certification.

OLED displays offer significant advantages in terms of contrast, color range and thickness compared to LCD screens, though they’ve not been cost effective for most consumers to date. LG appears to have new 65″ and 77″ displays in the works, based on LG’s typical naming conventions. Here’s the full list of models that I found:

  • 65″ models: OLED65G6K, OLED65G6P, OLED65G6T, OLED65G6V, OLED65G6Y
  • 77″ models: OLED77G6K, OLED77G6P, OLED77G6T, OLED77G6V, OLED77G6Y

Chances are that at least some of the displays will be part of LG’s new premium Signature line of electronics, which will be revealed on January 5.

The expansion of the OLED lineup only makes sense, given LG’s recent investment of nearly $9 billion USD in the development of a new OLED plant.
