Would You Pay More Than $13,000 To Own One Of These Crazy Curved TVs By LG?
Although you might think that you just got your hands on a state-of-the-art TV, the truth is that, unless you shelled out some major coin for it, it’s probably already outdated. It’s not really hard for that to happen nowadays, as TV manufacturers are constantly rolling out a steady stream of TVs every month that are more advanced than anything released just one month prior. But, that being said, the latest update to the modern TV is a real doozy. It’s big, it’s flashy, and it’s curved. Yes, curved.
The curved TV comes courtesy of LG (check out a photo of it above). And, while LG only announced plans for it about two weeks ago, it appears as though they’re not wasting any time putting it out. They just put it the TV—which is officially known as the LG 55AE9800—up for pre-sale in South Korea this week, and it looks pretty amazing. It features a curved shape, is 0.17 inches thin, weighs less than 40 pounds, and features all kinds of cool color technology that’ll make the picture brighter and clearer than anything you’ve ever laid eyes on.
So, what’s the catch? Well, for starters, the 55AE9800 isn’t going to be available in America just yet. For now, South Korea will be the only country getting a crack at it. And then, there’s the price. The 55AE9800 is going to be available for roughly—you ready for this?—$13,500. Yikes. So, while it does have way more features than the TV you just bought, it’s also got a considerably larger price tag. As in, the kind of price tag that’s usually reserved for a car.
But isn’t it cool? We’re definitely not going to pick up this specific TV when it drops (we’re not balling like that!). But we’re excited to see this new technology that LG is introducing incorporated into other TVs in the future. If this is the future of televisions, count us in.
