If you want a new and cool TV, and with all cool and latest features, and with OLED display, and with 4K resolution… I suggest you to wait a little. Next week in IFA (Europe’s biggest tech show) LG will announce two newest TVs – with 77 and 65 inch screens. To obtain one you should wait till October 2014.
