On the heels of LG Electronics' first Super Bowl commercial – featuring the brand new LG SIGNATURE OLED TV – LG today announced pricing for its 2016 flagship OLED TV model.
LG will offer a consumer preview of its flagship SIGNATURE OLED TV OLED TV (model OLED65G6P) through a display showcase at select retail stores throughout the U.S., and make it available for pre-sale both in store and online prior to its launch.
The 65-inch class (64.5 inches measured diagonally) OLED65G6P is now available for pre-order at $7,999.99 with initial shipments planned for late next month.
