LG has launched the first 4K OLED TV in India.

LG's first 4K OLED TV in india is here and it is not cheap. The 55-inch model is priced at Rs 3,84,900, while the 65-inch model is priced at Rs 5,79,900.

What does it have to justify those prices? For starters, LG's proprietary WRGB screen tech displays 33 million colour sub-pixels, 27 million more than regular HDTVs), which means you pictures will be sharper and have better colours and contrast. And at just 5.9mm, the display is razor thin.

The TV is also powered by WebOS, which adds apps and other smarts and LG throws in a "magic motion remote" -- whatever that means -- that offers voice recognition to presumably let you change channels by just speaking to it. And oh, it also bundles in 3D glasses.

The TV also offers WiFi, Miracast, MHL and Intel WiDi -- essentially standards that let you wirelessly fling video and other content from supported phones and other devices directly onto the TV.

The TVs go on sale on all the usual channels in the next few weeks. We're ordering ours with cash on delivery.
