We’ve taken LG’s top-of-the-line Smart TV through it’s paces and have already reviewed the device so all that’s left is pricing and availability. We attended the official launch of not only the high-end LM9600, but also three other lower models destined for the mid-market and entry level categories. There will be four product lines: the LM9600, LM7600, LM6700 and the LM6200. The four TVs will come in 32, 42, 47, 55 and 65-inches.
Aside from the obvious Smart TV aspects of the new TVs, there was one product that caught our eye during the launch. LG’s Pentouch equipped TV, the PM9600 can be used a huge writing board via the Pentouch controls included.
The PenTouch equipped TV isn’t part of the formal product line launched during the day, though it still retains internet connectivity. The 60-inch version of the PM6900 retails for Php 169,990 while the smaller 50-inch version goes for 79,990.
Since Samsung had a good lineup content-wise on the release of their Smart TV, we wondered what LG would bring to the table. Sadly, aside from the K-Pop content and 3D World line-up that we talked about during the review, LG won’t be offering anything more. They did talk about bringing in content from local content partners, but that pales in comparison to what Samsung did with their Smart TV.
The 55-inch LM9600 goes for 299,990, while the LM7600 will go for roughly Php 60,000 lower, give or take a few thousand depending on the size of the panel used. No word on the pricing LM6700 and LM6200.
