LG ELectronics launched the 55EA9800 55" curved OLED TV to the Chinese market. The TV will cost ¥59,999 (about $9,800, slightly cheaper than the US price of $9,999). It will be available via both online and offline channels.
LG's EA9800 features an Oxide-TFT WRGB Full-HD OLED panel (like LG's 55EM9700 flat OLED TV, which isn't shipping in China yet). The TV features "infinite" contrast ratio, passive 3D, Smart Touch Controls and a "paper-slim" design. It is made from Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) and weighs just 17 Kg and is only 4.3 mm thick. The curved screen "removes any hint of visual distraction to maximize the viewing experience".
