LG Electronics India, the leader in consumer durables, showcased its futuristic technology at the fourth edition of its annual technology convention – the LG India Tech Show 2016.

Also, the newly launched K series smart phones K7 and K10, under LG’s ‘Make in India’ initiative were displayed.
Key products under ‘Signature Series’ unveiled at LG India Tech Show 2016 were:
LG OLED 4K TV with Dolby Vision: LG brings the future of television technology to its consumers with the all new G6 and E6 series OLED TV. The flagship G6 SIGNATURE OLED TV feature exceptional contrast and color as well as 4K Ultra HD resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) capability. Certified as UHD Premium by the UHD Alliance, the series supports the industry-standard HDR formats established by the world’s leading broadcasters, film studios and consumer electronics manufacturers, including generic HDR and DolbyVision™ technology, making them among the firsts to be compatible with all formats.
Unlike LCD displays where the LED backlight can only locally dim sections of the screen, each pixel on an OLED panel can switch on and off independently. As a result, OLED TVs render crisp, vibrant colors and rich shadow details, even when bright objects are directly next to deep, dark areas — unlike LCD TVs which have a halo effect from light bleeding. New LG SIGNATURE OLED TV models feature LG’s new webOS 3.0 smart TV platform, featuring advanced new features that make finding and switching between LG’s expanded content options — including broadcast TV, streaming services and external devices – simple and fast.
Air Purifier: The only Air Purifier that cleans air before your very eyes: 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.

The unit is equipped with LG’s Semi-Permanent Filter System, allowing consumers to remove, wash and reuse the filters for up to 10 years, saving both time and money.
While fine dust particles are typically invisible to the naked eye, customers can see the air quality of their indoor environment by simply glancing at LG’s Smart PM1.0 Indicator. Positioned around the control display, the indicator uses four different colors of light to signify the concentration of super-fine dust particles.
