LG stole the show once again at CES 2017, with the company debuting updates to 2016’s OLED line-up, alongside a completely new model that is thinner than ever. The South Korean tech giant has now revealed pricing for all of those sets.
The LG B7 and C7 will be the most affordable options in LG’s 2017 line-up, coming in at £2,999 for the 55in models and £4,499 for the 65in. Despite the added curve on the C7, LG has decided to keep the price exactly the same, giving consumers free choice as to whether they want a flat panel or curved panel.
Those wanting an OLED TV with better audio will likely want to buy the E7 or above. This TV ships with a soundbar stand. What’s more, that soundbar supports Dolby Atmos – although don’t expect it to sound as good as a dedicated speaker system. Those wanting the E7 OLED will be able to purchase either the 55in or 65in model for £3,499 and £4,999, respectively.
While the E7 does include an integrated soundbar at the base of the OLED panel, it’s not as powerful as the one that can be found on the LG G7. Once again, this soundbar includes Dolby Atmos support, while the TV itself supports Dolby Vision. Pricing for this set has been set at £6,999 for the 65in model and £19,999 for the 77in.
Last year the LG G6 was the company’s flagship OLED TV, although at CES 2017 the company debuted an entirely new set, dubbed the LG W7 Signature. Unlike previous OLED models, which included all of the TV’s interior in their base or behind the panel, the W7 Signature requires a separate break-out box for plugging in everything from power to HDMI inputs. Uniquely, that break-out box also doubles as a Dolby Atmos soundbar with upward firing speakers.
Some installers have become rampant fans of LG’s OLED series, although it remains to be seen if the W7 Signature will win hearts. That’s because mounting options are very limited, as LG states that the TV can only be mounted on a flat surface and must use the wall mount included in the W7’s box. The TV is also incapable of standing on-top of a media unit, as its dimensions restrict it to being wall mounted only.
Those wanting to get their hands on LG’s latest flagship will have to stump up a little more than last year’s model, with the LG W7 Signature priced at £7,999 for the 65in model, and £24,999 for the 77in variant.
Most of LG’s new OLED sets should ship either later this month or next month, although the 65in E7 is delayed until May, and the 77in W7 won’t reach stores until August.
