Unlike other brands, LG for the first time showcased their most innovative products at LG Tech Show 2013. That’s a great initiative by LG, who takes and value Indian consumers choices at a higher priority and strive to offer the best quality products in market. Even though there were some ultra-premium products showcased, but there are few which we can categorize as best innovative product showcased at the LG Tech show.
If you really want to see a TV of the future, and expect Samsung to take it out first in market, then probably you’ll be surprised to know that LG shall be offering first time to the consumers an 84″ Ultra-HD television. The major USP of this product is the resolution it has is 4 times what a normal HDTV (1080p) offers. Currently this product is priced at Rs. 17 lakhs, which obviously makes it out of range for most of the Indian customers.
Including this, another technology which shall be hitting Indian markets very soon would be OLED TV’s. And LG showcased their 55″ OLED television which supports 3D imagery as well. When we saw it at the LG tech show, we realized that the color reproduction and contrast was absolutely brilliant because of superior WRGB technology and the TV Screen is just 4mm thin and weights less than 10 kg’s which really surprised us a lot.
Printing Memories on the Go
LG PD233 Pocket Photo is a smart mobile printer which is capable of printing high quality photos and provides excellent wireless connectivity via NFC or Bluetooth and you receives your print command from your android phones or iOS phones with just a tap. This product easily fits in your hand or jacket pocket and the prints from this Pocket photo measure 5.1 x 7.6 cm (2 x 3 inch) which is a nice size considering the mobility printer offers.

For us, the major use of this printer shall be for printing customized birthday invitations, thank you cards, or even business cards with a personal QR code.

In comparison with conventional printing processes, ZINK’s inkless paper system preserves images longer and produces less smearing and preserves images longer.
