UAE consumers experience the ultimate in premium home entertainment as LG launches new 2018 OLED TV line-up

LG brings the cinema to your home with its award-winning LG OLED TV, featuring breathtaking Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Advanced 4K Cinema HDR by Technicolor and new α9 intelligent processor


 Dubai, UAE, 31st May, 2018: In the realm of OLED display technology, LG has maintained its reputation as both a pioneer and undisputed leader. LG’s multi-award-winning technology has redefined the way TVs are designed, and revolutionised the way people view their favourite entertainment, allowing them to experience cinema-quality audio-visual in the comfort of their homes. Despite the competition, LG has cemented its place as the leaders in innovation, and the launch of its new flagship OLED TV is a testament to this unrivalled success.


Today, at the Mall of the Emirates, LG unveiled its new 2018 OLED TV line-up, giving consumers their first glimpse of the incredibly sleek and technology-packed premium home entertainment system. The new OLED TVs feature LG’s exclusive advanced α (Alpha) 9 processor for unparalleled image quality, enhanced image rendering, perfect blacks and breathtakingly accurate colour reproduction. Also present at the launch were LG’s partners, Dolby, to showcase their audio-visual prowess through the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies incorporated into the new 2018 OLED TV line-up, creating the ultimate cinematic experience for consumers.


“We are extremely proud of this moment. Bringing our customers the best of our technological innovations is what we always strive to do. With the new 2018 OLED TVs, including the LG SIGNATURE OLED W8 “Wallpaper” TV, they can now experience the ultimate in home entertainment like never before. Everything about these TVs, from the sleek, unmatched design to the premium audio-visual capabilities is a testament to LG’s unwavering commitment to being industry leaders. The LG SIGNATURE OLED W8 “Wallpaper” TV is truly a piece of art, taking these features to the next level, and we are very excited to be here, launching this to our customers across the Gulf,” said Mr. Yong Guen Choi, President, LG Electronics Gulf.



In keeping with the minimalist approach to design, the LG SIGNATURE OLED W8 TV takes on a radically different design from traditional TVs. The picture-on-wall – akin to wallpaper, hence the monicker – enables the W8 to be mounted virtually flush against the wall. The bezel-less display creates the illusion of a painting, with stunning colours and perfect blacks. LG’s proprietary AI ThinQ additionally bolsters the cinematic experience by boosting the colour vibrancy across the W8’s vast colour gamut, resulting in awe-inspiringly immersive viewing.



LG OLED TV also features comprehensive support of major high dynamic range formats including Dolby Vision™ HDR from the cinema, as well as HDR10 and HLG (Technicolor®), both with LG’s advanced tone-mapping technology that provides scene-by-scene optimisation and rendition that matches content envisioned by cinematographers.


The new 2018 LG OLED TV line-up is now available in 55, 65- and 77-inch dimensions across the UAE at major stores, online retailers, and LG Brand Shops, starting from AED7,999 (B8), AED8,999 (C8), AED9,999 (E8) and AED49,999 (LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W8).
