LG MAGNIT 4K 136-inch price unveiled with Bang & Olufsen speaker bundles
A few weeks ago, LG introduced the MAGNIT 4K, a 136-inch display that outputs natively at 4K. Equipped with the company's webOS smart TV platform, the MAGNIT 4K 136-inch features Micro LEDs, a technology that is self-emissive like OLEDs. However, Micro LEDs can are inorganic, unlike OLEDs. Hence, TVs equipped with Micro LEDs should degrade over time as OLED TVs can with burn-in or image retention.
Subsequently, the company has revealed the device's US pricing, which is reported to be US$299,999. Alternatively, LG will sell the MAGNIT 4K 136-inch for US$349,999 with a pair of Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 90 floor standing speakers. Typically, these speakers retail for US$115,000 as a pair and deliver 8,200 W per speaker from their 18 drivers. Also, LG will offer the TV with the Beolab 28 and Beolab 50. Although LG has not confirmed pricing for these bundles yet, Band & Olufsen charges US$16,500 for a pair of the Beolab 28 and US$47,000 for the Beolab 50.
As for the MAGNIT 4K 136-inch, LG has outlined that the panel peaks at 120 Hz and 2,000 nits. Moreover, the TV has four HDMI in ports of an unknown standard, digital out, LAN in, an RS-232C port and two USB in connections, again of an unknown standard. LG sells the MAGNIT 4K 136-inch exclusively in the US for now through its distribution partners. Surprisingly, some features like AirPlay 2 compatibility and a MAGNIT mobile app will not be ready until Q4 2022.
