The LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W
LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W (77/65-inch), the winner of over 45 prestigious awards including the 2017 CES Best of Innovation Award, embodies breakthrough innovation in television technologies and exquisite premium design, demonstrating that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. The innovative design of the W7 series follows LG’s “less is more” philosophy, stripping away everything to emphasise the beauty of the screen alone. The W7’s sleek razor-thin profile makes the TV appear to be levitating in mid-air, adding to the sense of immersion.
W7 series models are less than 4mm thick when measured from the wall without any gap between the TV and the wall. The sense of immersion is completed through up-firing speakers which produce Dolby Atmos sound. W7 series live up to LG OLED TV’s unrivalled ability to reproduce the most lifelike images of any TV product with perfect black infinite contrast and an expanded colour gamut. Additionally, they offer up to one billion possible colours and use ULTRA Luminance technology to deliver greater brightness according to the content being displayed. The W7 series feature Active HDR to render brighter scenes and greater shadow detail for HDR content. In addition, the series support multiple HDR formats, including Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
LG SIGNATURE Refrigerator
The LG SIGNATURE refrigerator represents the visualisation of essence with a fresh take that is both intuitive and revolutionary. As a nod to its innovative spirit, LG has taken its award-winning Door-in-Door™ design one step further by adding the InstaView Door-in-Door™ feature that makes the opaque Door-in-Door™ compartment transparent with two quick knocks. The transparent surface allows customers to peer inside the refrigerator without having to open the door, offering significant energy savings by limiting cold air loss.
Even more innovative is the new Auto Open Door feature which activates as a user approaches the refrigerator, allowing for quick and easy hands-free access. The LG SIGNATURE refrigerator is powered by LG’s Inverter Linear Compressor which automatically adjusts its cooling capacity based on conditions inside the compartment. It also generates less internal friction due to its unique design and is backed by a 10-year warranty.
The LG SIGNATURE Washing Machine
The unique-looking LG SIGNATURE washing machine is an advanced version of the LG TWINWash™ washer. The premium 24-inch front load washing machine is more durable, more convenient and more sophisticated than ever and features the unique pedestal TWINWash™ Mini under the main unit.
The minimalistic design of the LG SIGNATURE washing machine is highlighted by the beautiful touch-enabled Quick Circle™ User Interface which is embedded in the glass door. Positioned at a 17 degree angle, the panel is easy to see when standing. The Push Open washing machine door can be opened with a slight push, even when the user’s hands are full. Meanwhile, the washer’s enamel coating not only gives it a sleek, sophisticated look, but also repels fingerprints and corrosion.
The LG SIGNATURE washing machine comes equipped with LG’s proprietary Centum System™ which improves the washing machine’s durability and energy efficiency with an advanced suspension system. Noise emitted while the washing machine is in operation is greatly decreased because the Centum System™ minimizes the tub’s vibrations during a wash cycle.
The LG SIGNATURE Air Purifier
LG believes that nothing is more important than clean air. The exquisitely designed LG SIGNATURE air purifier allows the air cleaning process to be a visual experience with its innovative transparent panel. Equipped with an advanced Watering Engine™, this air purifier harnesses the power of water to filter out harmful chemicals and contaminants while quickly bringing the room to comfortable humidity levels.
The unit is equipped with LG’s SIGNATURE Black Filter™ System, allowing consumers to reuse the filters for up to 10 years, saving money. While fine dust particles are totally invisible to the naked eye, customers can see the air quality of their indoor environment by simply glancing at LG’s Smart Indicator™. Positioned on the control display, the indicator shows air quality with quantitative figures. PM10, PM2.5 and even PM1.0 can be detected.
All LG SIGNATURE products will be available at the LG brand shops and leading retail stores across the GCC.
