Our younger readers may never have seen an old television set with ‘dials’, but LG are attempting to hit the nostalia button by releasing a new television with several of them next to the screen.
Their retro classic TV, model 32LN630R features a creamy white fascia with volume and channel knobs at the right.
LG say the television set is a nod back to the designs of the 1970’s with an emphasis on simplicity and modernity (is that even a word?). Thankfully they didn’t decide to opt for a cathode ray tube as the size and weight would have alienated a lot of people.
Inside, there is a true HD (1920×1080) LED panel, with a 178 degree viewing angle. It can also accept USB external hard drives and has Mobile High Definition (MHL) for connecting to a smartphone.
It will sell for around $750 and the company are throwing in a free coffee maker as a bonus.
