LG releases first flat screen OLED TV in Australia

Early release due to high demand for OLED TVs in Aussie market

LG Electronics Australia (LG) has launched its new flat panel 4K UHD OLED TV, the EF950T series, which is available to buy at select Australian retailers.

It has been released in the market earlier than expected due to what LG described as high demand for LG OLED TVs. Retail sales of the televisions were averaging over a million dollars each week for the past ten weeks.

The EF950T is the first LG TV in the country to be HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatible.

The compatibility means the series is capable of displaying specialised HDR content from planned releases designed for 4K UHD Blu-ray players and streaming sources like Netflix.

The new series comes with webOS 2.0 for Smart TV navigation, a 6-step Ultra HD Upscaler that maximises resolution quality of available source content and by harman/kardon speakers.

Additionally, the series has HDMI inputs compatible with the new HDMI 2.0a standard, designed to handle the transfer of HDR cofed contents from Ultra HD Blu-ray Players.

LG Home Electronics marketing manager, Grant Vandenberg, said, “we have been asked by many consumers when a flat screen OLED TV will be available from LG in Australia and now with the EF950T, it’s here. We’re giving people the choice between flat screen or curved screen.”

Vandenberg added, “we encourage consumers to go into stores and take the OLED challenge by comparing LED/LCD TVs, which have a backlight, to LG OLED TV which has no backlight. It’s something we believe consumers need to see for themselves to appreciate the OLED difference.”

From this week, the EF950T will roll out in 55 and 65-inch versions to select retail outlets across Australia.

The 65-inch model is priced at RRP $8,999, while the 55-inch model is priced at RRP $5,499.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
