LG Goes Retro With its 70s-Style TV.... Have a Look!

LG is giving us all a serious case of nostalgia with its newly launched 32-inch LCD set, designed to resemble a 70s style CRT, complete with rotary dials for volume and channel control. 

South Korean company is outfitting the television with modern technology, including a 1080p IPS display, HDMI, USB and MHL ports, as well as a remote control (so you won't actually have to get up to change the channel). It hooks up to electronic devices, such as smartphones and laptops, via the ports.

The TV also forgoes a small 70s-style screen in favor of an ultra-wide, 32-inch, LED screen.

On its website, LG explains that the television's look is meant to evoke a “classic Scandinavian-style design that emphasizes simplicity.”

It conjures up "nostalgia of the old days," the company says, adding that the TV's unique style is "important for customers looking for something trendy and special."

For now, the model is only available in South Korea, and there are currently no plans to bring it to an American market. The television is on sale for 840,000 won (around USD $750).
