Check out LG's FALD announcement in the Latest Industry News thread. FALD will be used in their 55 and 65" UHD sets. August will be a busy month for comparing those same size UHD screens from different makers.
The latest pair is LG’s 55-inch 55LA9700 and 65-inch 65LA9700. The company just started taking pre-orders for both sets, but only in Korea. Each TV features IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels, the Magic Remote with voice recognition and control, and LG Cinema 3D, which is the company’s brand of passive 3D technology. Of course, the real hook here is the 3840-by-2150 resolution, which is four times the image that you’re getting with full 1080p HD.
