Let’s backtrack to the title. Do you understand how thin 2.57mm is? For comparison, that headphone jack that you’re using (or not, if you’ve got the latest iPhone) is a 3mm jack. The LG Signature OLED W7 (the W stands for wallpaper, not Wumbo) Smart TV is even thinner than that. That’s incredible! Currently, the world’s thinnest phone — the Vivo X5 Max — is 4.75mm thick. Granted, the X5 Max keeps all of its internals, well, internally, whereas the LG keeps its guts in something that doubles as a Dolby Atmos soundbar.
This 4K Smart TV will run LG webOS 3.5 and will come with some stunning visuals, as well as audio. The TV will have Active HDR, which “analyzes and optimizes HDR10 content… for an even more breathtaking [HDR] experience.” It supports Dolby Vision and the HLG HDR standard. Of course, it also has a wide viewing angle so everyone in the room can comfortably consume the content on the screen. Dolby Atmos audio will provide consumers with a fantastic viewing and listening experience, whether it’s from the TV itself or passing through to their home theater system.
As mentioned earlier, all of the guts of the TV are contained in an AV box that doubles as a Dolby Atmos soundbar. It contains 4 HDMI ports, 3 USB ports, 1 RF In, 1 Composite In, 1 Component In, 1 Ethernet port, 1 Optical, and 1 RS232C.
LG’s W7 will be available in two screen sizes: 65-inch and 77-inch. The 65-inch model weighs 16.8 pounds (the AV box is 22.7 pounds) and will be available in March. The 77-inch model comes in at 27.1 pounds (AV box weighs 28 pounds) and will be available at a later date. Pricing, however, is currently unknown. Last year’s 65-inch model was $8,000, so it’s safe to assume that this year’s will be similarly priced.
With “perfect” blacks, cinematic color, and spectacular Dolby Audio sound, LG wants the W7 to be your next premium purchase. Check out LG’s site for more info on the TVs.
