World's first 3D LED-backlit TV coming courtesy of LG

LX9500 LED television to launch in Korea within months

LG announced this Thursday that its upcoming LX9500 will be the worlds first HDTV set to combine a fully-LED-backlit LCD with 3D support.

Word regarding the LX9500 first surfaced last month, when a leaked document revealed LG's roadmap for the coming year. LG opted not to comment on the legitimacy of last month's leak, however the new 3D LED TV has now been confirmed.

The LX9500 will be available in two models, one coming in at 47 inches, and the other a larger model measuring 55 inches. Both of these thin 1080p LED sets come packed with a whole host of features, including USB 2.0, HDMI, integrated Skype software, and of course 3D support.

The sets, which do require you to wear USB-powered glasses, should arrive in Korea within the coming months, beating rival Samsung to market. It'll launch in Europe and the US this May. No pricing details were provided for global markets, but when the LX9500 launches in Korea it is expected to cost around 4.7million South Korean Won, which is roughly $4,000.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
