The company on Friday announced (PDF) that 55- and 65-inch Ultra HD televisions, part of its LA9700 series, are being rolled out in the United States this week. Along with 4K resolution of 8.3 million pixels per frame, the sets boast 4.1-channel surround system and support for the company's Magic Remote, which lets you control the TV by speaking.
Still, because the LA9700 series includes 4K resolution, don't expect to get a deal. The 55-inch 55LA9700 goes for $6,999, while the 65-inch 66LA9700 retails for $7,999, LG said in a statement. That's significantly more than same-sized 4K TVs from Samsung (shipping in August) and Sony (shipping now).
