LG unveils the world’s largest and slimmest 55-inch OLED TV in Europe

The 55-inch OLED TV that LG had introduced at CES has finally been taken wraps off at a Monaco event. The model named 55EM9600 has got a carbon fiber redesign, shrinking it down by 1mm to 4mm (0.16 inches). The model has all the AV connectors neatly stacked at the back, while three USB ports are aligned on one side for media sharing. LG uses 4 Color Pixel technology that relies on a white sub-pixel to perfect the color output, as well as a Color Refiner to enhance the image, resulting in pictures that are vibrant, natural, and comfortable for the human eye. Those who are unaware of OLEDs basically generate their own light, eliminating the need for backlighting.

LG was reluctant to give out details about the 55-inch OLED TV set just yet. However, the rounds’ rumors suggest that it is likely to be released in July with a price tag of about €8,000 (10,000).
