Existing 4K TV sets are LCD-based. But according to some purists, OLED offers a richer quality display so might be the better option for 55in screens.

OLED TVs do not require a lamp or bulky support structures. The LG OLED TV 55EM9700 is as thin as three credit cards. The bezel that surrounds the TV is barely noticeable which allows an almost borderless screen for a truly immersive viewing experience for both 2D and 3D content.

LG OLED TV 55EM9700 seems to be the same model as last year’s CES show’s winner LG OLED TV 55EM9600.
