East Africa, prepare yourself for the LG OLED TV, as the company is planning to grow the premium TV segment market share by this top notch TV not minding that Africa is still obsessed by Smartphones and tablets.
Josep Kim, the LG East Africa Managing Director said though changes in consumer trends and the market landscape are extremely difficult to predict and can have major consequences on the electronics business, the company would attempt to stay ahead of the game by introducing an unbeatable range of premium products and by expanding the overall diversity of its TV lineup.
The 55 inch OLED TV was launched in the Kenyan market and costs about Ksh.1.2 million. The TV can only be found at HotPoint Appliances, Sarit Center, Nairobi.
“It’s possible to make OLED TVs considerably thinner and lighter than LCD TVs because OLED has a simple structure and requires no additional illuminant,” said the Managing Director. “If yield rates continue to rise, OLED TVs will quickly replace LCD TVs in living rooms around the world. OLED TVs are already better than LCD TVs in terms of picture quality and will soon be more cost effective to produce as well”.
