Back in February, we ran across a leaked roadmap from LG that shows the firms new LX9500 3D TV would be landing in retailed in May. We haven't really heard anything more about the set until today. LG has now officially announced the LX9500 in Korea.
The set is the world's first full LED 3D TV according to LG and it uses an innovative backlight system to deliver an improved 3D experience. The set has 1200 LEDs inside the 55-inch version and has a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The refresh rate on the set is 240Hz.
The LX9500 is very slim with a profile of 22.3mm and has a 16mm super-thin bezel so it takes up less space on the wall or in the entertainment center. The set will show 3D still shots and other content directly from a camera without having to convert it with a PC first. The LX9500 does require active 3D glasses. LG will offer 47-inch and 55-inch versions of the sets in Korea first with America and Europe in early May. Pricing is unannounced.
