PC users who are planning to make LG’s first 42-inch OLED TV their next monitor could be paying a higher-than-expected premium for the privilege of being able to squeeze the display technology’s impeccable image quality onto the confines of a desk.

That’s according to an initial listing for the 42C2 that has popped up at a department store company based in the UK called John Lewis & Partners, which has listed LG’s 42-inch OLED TV with a price tag of £1,399.00 (~$1,902). This happens to be the same price that the retailer has listed for the 48C2, a larger version of the display that features a 48-inch OLED panel.

It’s unclear whether the prices might be placeholders or not, but the listings also suggest that LG’s new 42-inch and 48-inch C2 OLED TVs will be available within five and three weeks, respectively.
