LG unveils 2019 premium OLED and NanoCell 4K TVs

  1. LG Electronics has revealed its high end OLED and NanoCell TVs that will be arriving later this week. OLED models now account for one-fifth of high-end models from LG with unit sales figures expected to more than double over the next two years.

    This year's latest and greatest will be available in sizes up 86 inches, bringing a new processor to handle all of the AI features. The Alpha 9 Gen 2 will be yet another chip using deep learning for image processing and audio enhancement, also accounting for ambient lighting conditions.

    Around summertime, LG will be rolling out support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit to their 2019 premium lineup so that iPhone and iPad owners can easily cast media to their TVs. Firmware updates will also bring support for Amazon Alexa. Google Assistant is already installed and will be available at launch.

    Certain 2019 models, some OLED and some NanoCell, will feature HDMI 2.1 with support for 120FPS 4K content as well as the 4K high frame rate standard. Variable refresh rates are also supported as well as enhanced audio return channel.

    Specialty models going up for sale include the 88Z9 8K OLED and the LG Signature OLED TV R, better known as the rollable TV from CES. While both of these are sure to impress, pricing will be a turn off to those who care to even ask what the price is.

    Pricing will go live later this week once LG officially puts the new OLED and NanoCell TVs on sale.

    Currently, OLED is the best TV panel technology...Nothing beats it!

    Saw a 75" LG 4K with HDR for $1000 shipped from Dell the other day (IGN Deals email).
    Samsung have a nice 75" for about $1400 (UN75NU8000) but I am going to get the QLED model (QN75Q6FN) for about $2000.
    Then its time for the Extended Versions of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, hours of new footage between the movies! SO FRICKING PUMPED.

    I could find where you mention which panel will have 120hz? Which OLED panel will have 120hz?

    And its dropping the pricing on regular LCD HDTV's like crazy! I got to start researching OLED and QLED technology again! I'll be in the market in a few months for a big boy!

    Sorry but I am done teaching common sense.

    Ah that would be none, still 60Hz. There is also no content available in native 4K @ 120p either

    In pc gaming there is. But the article mentions something about LG launching an OLED panel with 4k 120hz because of the hdmi 2.1 or something. I want to know which panel.

    If it’s a hdmi 2.1 enabled display then it can display 120Hz @4K, use freesync2 over HDMI and be the center of your home theatre, sending audio to your prepro/receiver while processing the video signal, eliminating most input lag causes.

    There are other features that matter to others but the things I mentioned are what would matter most to a PC gamer.
