LG will launch the world's first 55inch curved OLED HDTV

We visited LG’s HQ earlier this month and heard that the curved OLED HDTV prototypes it showed at CES are due for release, and now it’s official. A Korean press release indicates we can expect the 55EA9800 to launch in the next month, with shipments starting in June. According to the specs, its 4.3mm depth results in a weight of just 17kg, probably thinks to a carbon-fiber reinforced frame. Like an IMAX theater screen, the edges are curved towards the viewer to provide a more immersive feeling. Given the fact that we’re still waiting for LG’s flat OLED TVs to see a wider release we doubt it will arrive on US shelves any time soon, but until then you can check out our in-person pics from CES below, and a video after the break.
