New W-Series TV Available in 2017
New W-Series TV is in production by LG. The “w” stands for wallpaper as the TV is just a tenth of an inch thick. It can be connected to a wall with magnetic brackets. The W was unveiled as a concept model just two years ago. However, it will be available in stores in 2017. The company has not set a price but says it will cost “a thousand or two” more than the OLED TV it unveiled last year. The OLED starts at $8,000. The W will be available in two sizes: 65 inches and 77 inches.
Size and Weight is Remarkable
Once the TV is attached to the wall it protrudes no more than two coins stuck together – just 0.15 inch. The 65-inch models weights 18 pounds while the 77-incher weighs 27 pounds. That is less than a number of 32-inch LCDs. The lightweight TV makes it easy to attach almost anywhere without concerns about in-wall studs or weight limits.
Some LCD-based TVs, being ultrathin, often means the sacrifice of image quality. LG insists the new W will share the same image quality as its other 2017 OLED TVs. It offers a 4K resolution. It will support Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and Technicolor HDR. It includes a sound bar with Dolby Atmos.
