LG 55” OLED 1080p Curved Smart TV with webOS 2.0
This LG HDTV’s pencil-thin frame belies the power of its hardware, which packs a dual-core processor, WiFi, and a comprehensive smart TV interface with access to countless media platforms. The sleek display is curved for a wider field of view, ensuring everyone in the room, even the dunce-capped kid in the corner, can reap optimum immersion.
Smart TV: Entertainment on Demand
Stream a movie rather than walking to a Redbox, or binge on your favorite TV shows online. This smart TV’s built-in WiFi and preloaded apps like Netflix and YouTube expand your entertainment options without the clutter of cables and external streaming devices.
Vivid color, razor-sharp contrast, and expansive clarity pull you deeper into movies, TV shows, and video games. To achieve this quality, 1080p Full HD resolution packs the display with more than 2 million pixels, rendering super-fine images for a picture that looks almost true to life.
Intense Color and Realistic Depth
OLED display lighting generates color with such intensity and accuracy that you can see details as nuanced as the shades of black in a panther’s fur, or the dusky purples and bronzy oranges in a brilliant sunset. Unlike displays that use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate pixels from behind, OLED technology relies on organic molecules in the display layer that glow with brilliant color as electricity runs through them. They also turn off completely when it stops, thus achieving true blacks in individual pixels. This allows for vivid color and sharp contrast, as well as a thin, energy-efficient TV overall.
Curved Display: Immersive Viewing
By slightly bending the edges of the display forward, a curved TV mimics the shape of the eye to fill up more of your field of view. That fosters the perception of a larger screen with more depth between the foreground and background for a richer, more full picture. The curved angle also helps deflect sunbeams and lamplight to minimize distracting onscreen glare.
3D: Make Movie Nights More Immersive
A 3D TV has two modes—2D and 3D—both of which provide a dynamic viewing experience. In standard 2D, the TV’s high-quality display ensures crisp, clear color and details. When it’s time for a 3D-compatible movie, simply switch into 3D mode with a few clicks of the remote, and then put on a pair of 3D glasses. Images appear as though they’re leaping off the screen, making you feel like a part of the action.
HDMI and USB: Connect to More Content
An HDMI port connects high-definition components such as a Blu-ray player, cable box, or Roku Streaming Stick directly to your HDTV. USB input pushes your TV’s connectivity even further, letting you do things such as view photos or listen to music saved on thumb drives, digital cameras, and other USB sources.

At LG, technology alone isn’t enough to make a product great; it must also incorporate a stylish, ergonomic design that makes it a joy to use. This focus has earned the company the 2011 International Forum (iF) design award for products including a compact lightwave oven that fits into narrow spaces, and a slim, metal-framed LED TV. LG also maintains an impressive list of industry firsts: it developed the world’s first 60” plasma TV, internet-connected refrigerator, and dual-core smartphone.
