LG UH9800 is a re-definition of awesome TV viewing experience. It is what some may even describe as overkill, being the world’s first TV to sport an 8K display! This behemoth looks to immerse you in the experience with latest HDR standards and other technologies onboard. It is a TV of firsts.
Design and Display
Let’s face it. This isn’t just a TV for any space. The LG UH9800 is a 98-inch beast! It is more fitting for where many people can view it at the same time, such as a viewing centre or a large room. And indeed this will make for awesome cinematic experience. In spite of its colossal size, the flat-panel TV looks quite thin from the size.
The headline grabber of the LG UH9800 is its unprecedented 8K IPS display offering 7680 x 4320. This looks to make images even appear better than in real life. To better appreciate this screen quality, try and imagine something eight times better than Full HD.
Awesome! The technology used promises mind-blowing wide viewing angles. The LG UH9800 delivers more Digital Cinema Initiate (DCI) colours than most current LG OLED TVs. It promises truer blacks with hundreds of discrete LED backlighting blocks at work.
This set is among the first to come with its Korean maker’s webOS 3.0 proprietary software. So you may expect even more from a Smart TV platform that is the favourite of many people. The capabilities of the LG UH9800 include being able to view more than one channel simultaneously on the gigantic screen.
You can play games, use apps, stream content and access social media amongst other possibilities. The music app lets you enjoy songs on the set without switching it on. The LG UH9800 TV can communicate with other smart home devices as well.
Other Features of LG UH9800
Another first for the LG UH9800 is support for the latest Super MHL technology, which enables users to connect it to virtually all new video technologies with an HDMI port. It also supports latest High Dynamic Range (HDR) content standards and can display the future-focused Rec 2020 wide colour standard.
The set features integrated Wi-Fi as well as HDMI, USB, RF and Ethernet LAN ports among its connectivity options.
