If only my grandfather could see what TVs look like today.

His was more than a foot thick and required at least two strong people to lift. These days, ultra-thin televisions are about 6-7 mm thick on average, so at 2.57 mm, the new LG Signature OLED television is an unbelievable engineering marvel.

Whisper thin...and a challenge to photograph. :)

LG calls the technology, “picture on glass” with the display panel applied directly to the glass. It’s not the thinnest OLED display panel ever, that would be the 1mm razor thin prototype that LG showed off last year, but this one is the thinnest to go to market. 

The LG 4K Signature TV is as thin as 4 credit cards.

It’s a stunner up close, the width of 4 credit cards stacked on top of each other. Picture quality is amazing from any viewing angle, and as promised you get the darkest of blacks and the most vibrant colors.

This 4K TV measures 77 inches diagonally and comes with all the bells and whistles any 2016 television should boast of including High Dynamic Range (HDR) support, equally amazing built-in speakers, and a smart TV interface.

Of course for all that, expect a pretty expensive price tag to match, nowhere less than $10,000. LG hasn’t released a firm release date yet but it should most likely go on sale sometime in the first half of 2016.
