The price and availability information for LG’s striking 97-inch Signature OLED M TV outside of South Korea are now available. This wire-free TV has no more than one power cord.
The “Zero Connect Box,” which you connect in your set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and Blu-ray players into, is a standout feature of the TV. It broadcasts video wirelessly to the TV at up to 4K 120Hz. You aren’t plugging anything else into the TV itself other than for power, thus.
The 97-inch OLED Signature (model 97M3), according to LG, will go on sale in the UK in September at a price of £27,999.99 (about $35,400). The 83-inch OLED evo, which costs £7,999.99 (about $10,000), and the 77-inch OLED evo, which costs £5,999.99 (roughly $7,600), will be added to the lineup. Both of these TVs use the same “Zero Connect technology” for an almost wire-free experience.
Exclusive Features, But Costly
The 97-inch Signature OLED M will be offered in North America and Europe “later this year,” according to LG’s press announcement. Prices and availability for the US have not yet been disclosed.
The TV, which was first introduced at CES in early January, is already on sale in South Korea for 45,800,000 won, or about $35,168 (tax included).
It is theoretically possible to move all of your equipment up to 30 feet away from the TV without the requirement for a cabinet directly beneath the screen due to the Zero Connect Box’s three HDMI 2.1 connectors.
In any case, switching to a totally wireless system necessitates a reliance on batteries, as competitor Displace is attempting to do. Years ago, firms like Sony and Haier demonstrated various iterations of the idea of a fully wireless TV at trade exhibitions.
Dolby Atmos audio, Dolby Vision HDR, and G-Sync are all supported by the Signature OLED M, which also incorporates Nvidia hardware for variable refresh rates. The TV’s Zero Connect Box has three 4K 120Hz HDMI connectors in addition to two USB-A, Ethernet, and optical audio ports. The only difference between the TV and LG’s G3 OLED, according to the reports.
It will be fascinating to see what type of delay this wireless solution gives even though LG claims its unique AV transmission technology offers up to three times the speed of Wi-Fi 6E. OLED TVs are frequently suggested for gaming due to their very instantaneous pixel response times, however reducing input lag wirelessly would be a challenge.
