LG home entertainment products, mobile phones and home appliances were
recognized with awards in six highly-competitive categories: Video Displays,

"Technology innovation and design are the foundation of our company, and we

fifth year in a row, recognizing our ongoing commitment to bringing the best
user experience to market each year," said Wayne Park, president and CEO, LG
Electronics USA. "This year's host of honored products, from energy-efficient

Honored as the industry's best video display, the LG Ultra-High-Definition
84-inch class (84.04 inch diagonal) LED TV has a native screen resolution of

available, LG's powerful up-conversion engine, the proprietary "LG Resolution
Upscaler Plus," delivers higher detail from current HD/SD external sources.

stylish LG Optimus G for AT&T, the acclaimed superphone that has been

and stunning visuals on a True HD IPS Plus display. This smartphone is

powerful Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core processor, 4G LTE, and QSlide, LG's
newest multi-tasking feature, allowing consumer to double their productivity -
or fun - by simultaneously seeing two functions at once via transparent
layers. Optimus G is a high-quality multitasking device that is ideal for
playing graphic-intensive games and watching HD movies.

In addition to the host of home electronics and mobile products honored for

help consumers save time and money.
