LG Electronics Inc. announced Thursday that it will start selling the first wireless OLED TV in South Korea.

LG showed off the 97-inch LG Signature OLED M at CES 2023 in Las Vegas in January. It got a lot of attention right away for its sleek, cord-free design, which left only the power line on the back.

LG said that the new OLED TV comes with a Zero Connect box that sends video and audio information wirelessly to the screen at up to 4K resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.

The cube-shaped box can be up to 10 meters away and still transfer data easily to what LG called the “world’s first consumer TV with Zero Connect technology.

The company said it had made an algorithm that helps reduce transmission mistakes and finds the best way for signals to get from one place to another.

According to the company, the model gives people more options for how to set up their devices and plan their homes. It also makes it easier to watch TV because there are no wires running all over the place.

LG said that it was able to make the Signature M because of the OLED technologies and know-how it has built up over the past ten years.

Since the first LG Signature OLED came out in 2016, this is the company’s fifth one. The Signature OLED R, which came out in 2020, was the first TV that could be rolled up.

South Korea will start taking preorders on Thursday, and shipping will begin on Thursday of the following week.
