Are you tired of those pesky cables running down your wall and making the place all ugly? Well, LG is now launching the world's first wireless OLED TV, so that won't be a problem any more.

Taking its "gallery" series to the next level, the new LG M3 will be an iteration of the LG G3 OLED. The M3 will feature all of the MLA (Micro Lens Array) tech that makes the G3 so bright and able to compete with QD-OLEDs, but it will also feature what the Korean company are calling the "Zero Connect Box."

This naming convention is a clear swipe at Samsung's "One Connect Box", which allows all cables to be routed to a box that can be placed away from the TV so that there is just one cable from the box to the TV. LG's Zero Connect Box trumps this by making all communication between box and TV wireless (though they'll both require power cords).

While this sounds handy if it works correctly, we will have to be on the lookout for interference issues that mess with the signal.

The LG M3 launches in September at a price of £6000 for the 77" model and then steps up from there.

It should also be noted that the Zero Connect Box also has a slimmer bandwidth of 30Gbps rather than the full 49 that HDMI 2.1 is capable of. The wireless signal may also introduce lag, so gamers will want to hold off until tests are done.

Overall, the LG M3 seems to be a wireless G3 aimed at those who want to impress with minimalist living rooms, rather than those who value true cinema or gaming experiences.
