LG’s 55-inch OLED dubbed as EM9600 is packed with LG’s current whistles and bells, including smart TV with social media and streaming. The TV also features a built-in mic, passive 3D, and comes with a high-tech ‘four mode’ Magic Motion remote. It also includes a separate control box to house connectivity and other necessary gadgets.

It even appeared that LG decided to arrange the fashionable unveiling of this new TV set during the Cannes Film Festival in France, where a movie premier will also be held. With an aim to take lead in the OLED TV market, LG has launched its OLED TVs ahead of its competitors. For LG, it’s a big deal to come out with the new technology, and the company has already planned out its future roadmap, in order to compete with Samsung, who is also planning to launch its OLED TVs, as per the reports. This announcement of 55-inch OLED TV came out as LG’s plans to exploit the pre-Olympic TV buying craze.
