This TV supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by televisions that were launched more than a year ago.

The 55UG870 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 55UG870 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the 55EG920[pl_3059448_price], the 55EG960[pl_2879979_price], or the 55EF950[pl_3059571_price] all from LG which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

If you would consider a television with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the 65UF950[pl_2798638_price] (48.5mm and higher rated), or the 55UF850[pl_2805517_price] (50.8mm and higher rated) both from LG or the Panasonic TX-55CX700[plb_2798530_price] (54mm and cheaper).
