Last week we learned of the possible pricing for the new 4K UHD TV range from Samsung, and now it seems that we have the price for the LG EG9700 Series 4K OLED TV. Once again, these are not official, although we have no reason to doubt their accuracy.
Both LG and Samsung will no doubt be locked in a battle for sales once their new TV range hits the market, and no doubt we will see some retailers fighting it out by offering certain offers — although not right away. We say this because we know the likes of LG and Samsung like to make early adopters pay for having the latest and greatest in terms on consumer tech.
We know that LG has yet to release official pricing for its new 4K OLED TV range, but CNET do give us a good idea of what to expect, and boy one of the models is extortionate to say the least.
The smallest and cheapest of them all is the 55EF9600, which is the 55-inch flat screen version, the price is said to be $4,999. Next is the 55EG9600, which is of the same size, but the curved model, the price of which will be $5,499.
However, the big boy of the bunch is the 77EG9700 with its 77-inch panel and a price of $24,999. This is $2,000 more than Samsung’s 88-inch equivalent.
CNET has a breakdown of all five models and their prices, and even though they are rather large, we are certainly looking forward to seeing them hit the market.
