Today, LG Electronics Malaysia introduced a few new products for the local market. With items ranging from white goods such as washers, fridge and clothing steamers to Smart TV and gaming monitor. The products these time will be working with the “Create a Better Life” theme.
Kim Kyutae, the Managing Director of LG Electronics Malaysia mentioned: “When we strive for more than ‘better’, we start to innovate. By pushing past ‘better’, we became the recipients of 17 CES Innovation Awards for 2018 for Home Entertainment and Home Appliances. We can now serve our customers better with our advanced OLED and UHD TVs, soundbar and many other high quality technologies. Our theme of “Create a Better Life” compels us to bring human joys and memories that come with creating a better life.”
One of the newer products introduced was the LG OLED TV W8. It features a 65-inch or a 77-inch OLED display, and powered with the α9 Intelligent Processor and features HDR capabilities as well. The W8 also features other technologies such as Perfect Black that will seamlessly make the intended target stand out against the background, with the help of over 8 million self-lighting pixels on the TV. Cinema HDR is also present that allows you to watch new or old movies with colours that the director intended. On the audio side of things, the TV is equipped with a 60-watt, 4.2 channel Dolby Atmos speakers. As for its smart TV skills, LG allows you to control the TV with just your voice. Aside from that, the TV is also stupendously thin! The 77-inch measures at just 5.96mm thick. The TV comes packaged with a wall mount that you fix onto your wall, and utilising the power of magnets, simply mount the TV and voila you are done.
We were also introduced to a few monitors from LG, and one of them was the LG32GK850G. It sports a 31.5-inch Quad HD VA display that is border-less on the sides and top. It has 144Hz of refresh rate and 5ms of response time. It is also tailor made for NVIDIA GPU users as it offers G-SYNC capabilities, and allows you to overclock the display to 165Hz.
Aside from the W8, a plethora of other TVs, soundbars, washers, and even fridges were shown off by LG representatives. One of the products that caught our eyes were the LG TWINWash washing machines. As the name indicates, It is a washing machine with front load and top load capabilities. You can now tackle two loads of washing with just one machine at one time, and separate the washing by delicates and baby clothing in the bottom compartment, and your weekly clothing such as jeans and hoodies on the top compartment. To sweeten the deal even more, the washer doubles as a dryer as well, saving you precious space in your apartment. Using Smart ThinQ technology, you can even control your washer with your smartphone.
As for the theme of “Create a Better Life” and products that are equipped with Smart ThinQ technology, LG aims to reduce usage costs and reduce time wasting, to improve our daily lives. Price wise, the OLED77W8PTA (77-inch W8) is priced at RM79,999, and is available to be purchased from all LG authorised dealers nationwide. For more info you can drop by LG’s website.
