At 500 Best Buy stores in the U.S., LG will set up the OLED Experience Zone, where the AI definition enhancement engine (Alpha 9) will also debut. Sales will reportedly soon begin in major European, Latin American, and Asian Countries.
LG also wants to raise the proportion of OLED TVs sales to 20 percent of its TV sales from 15 percent last year. The company reports that by the end of 2018, all of its OLED TVs will be able to change channels, screen modes, and adjust volume using the natural language voice recognition functions.
Unlike existing users of LG OLED TVs that have had to go through complex procedures to browse on the TV or change the settings, LG’s Artificial Intelligence TVs can be switched on with the press of the microphone display button on the magic remote control and then voice commands.
