LG lowers the price of the new curved 55" FHD OLED TV to $3,499, will ship in 3-5 weeks

A few days ago, LG launched the 55EC9300 55" curved FHD OLED TV in the US, an upgrade to the original 55EA9800. The official price was $6,999 - while online stores offered it for pre-orders for $3,999 to $4,999. LG quickly lowered the price, though, and Amazon now offers it for $3,499 - only $200 more than the 55EA9800

The EC9300 features a faster refresh rate (240 Hz) compared to the 2013 model, and it's brighter, too (500 cd/m2 vs 350 cd/m2). LG also changed the TV's design and the TV is now based on LG's new smart TV platform (WebOS). The EC9300 weighs 14.38 Kg without the stand.
