LG is innovating the landscape of television technology. The South Korean tech giant has introduced at CES 2017 its latest Signature W series TV installment, and it is definitely a head-turning living room appliance.
The Wallpaper TV boasts of 4K OLED display. Actually, it is just a display panel, for its processing unit is found in the external sound bar that connects via a single cable. The separation of the display from the processing unit was needed in order for the TV to be as thin as a cardboard at just 5mm.
Fossbytes has learned that the Wallpaper TV runs WebOS 3.5 — the open source Linux-based webOS that is found in other LG Smart TVs. The appliance reportedly has standard connectivity. It has WiFI AC, USB 3.0, Ethernet, HDMI and other options available in most Smart TVs.
LG proudly calls this type of TV as Picture-on-Wall because it appears just like a large photo that’s been plastered on a wall. This is of course the beauty of the device. It easily catches attention not only because of its ultra-thin build, but also because of its 2160p or 4K UHD resolution.
Making the user experience even more high-end are the fancy technologies that LG embedded into the Wallpaper TV. It has Active HDR that analyzes and optimizes content scene-by-scene, so that what consumers see is breathtaking content flashed through a 77-inch wallpaper.
The state-of-the-art television also comes with Dolby Atmos, so that users get the ultimate listening experience. Together with Wide Viewing Angle, Active HDR, Dolby Vision and the Ultra Luminance technology, LG’s Signature OLED W 4K HDR Smart TV transforms any entertainment room in the house into a spectacular theater.
