    LG's 2017 OLED TV's model names and sizes are below.

    Model - W7
    Sizes - 65", 77"

    Model - G7
    Sizes - 65", 77"

    Model - E7
    Sizes - 55", 65"

    Model - C7
    Sizes - 55", 65"

    Model - B7
    Sizes - 55", 65"

    Interesting to see there's a new W7 range taking the total to five rather than four in 2016. I'm assuming the W7 range comes in above the G7 range in terms of spec and price. Time will tell.

    No official announcement from LG yet but all of this information was sourced from the Wifi Alliance certification list. It's all there for anyone to see. LG have sent their range for certification it seems!

    I would have liked to see a 50" personally. I'm going to get a 55" on Black Friday now for sure.

    So the 'innovation' of the new series is more astronomical prices?

    I'll be very curious to see exactly how the wallpaper models handle connections. One imagines it will have to be with a separate box and a custom connector to the screen. If I had a wish list feature I would love them to announce modular programmable chips for the core HDR processing and HDMI interface duties. Massively overspecced DSP chips that can easily handle revisions to HDR or big increases to bandwidth requirements from HDMI changes. Basically build in a good safety net to inspire purchase confidence during a time of turbulent standards change.

    Presuming next year we'll see a 1000 nit oled? Hope so!
    And of course lg keeping their 3d on most models. Its the best on any brand no doubt. If 3d had been this good from the start it would be in alot better shape than it is now

    Totally agree re 3D. I had a Panasonic plasma with active 3D which I couldn't watch comfortably for more than about 15/20 minutes but can watch 3D on my E6V through a whole film with no discomfort whatsoever. I hope LG don't drop it from their spec sheet as some are suggesting they might.

    My guess is that it will be similar to this year i.e. all with 3D except the B7.

    Personally, I really hope they keep the 'picture on glass' design on next year's range as it looks incredibly stylish.

    Keeping 3D is also a must so if LG deliver on both then I'll probably be upgrading if the prices are in line with this year's sets.

    Oh don't do this! [emoji51]. Just rang currys to return my c6 as lag too high on PS4. But finding it really hard to let go. Lol . Just wish LG would improve gaming lag on C6 and would happily keep it.
