LG have today announced their new 2018 range of OLED and LCD TVs.
Rather than any major advancements with their OLED panels (it’s hard to improve on something that’s already amazing!) LG have this year focussed on improvements to picture quality with their new Alpha9 processor to improve post processing, and by delivering better sound, AI, and voice control. Despite OLED being the best TV technology available right now, in 2017 both Sony and Panasonic both released OLED TVs using LG OLED panels that many people that delivered better picture quality than the LG TVs.
LG have announced new W8, E8, C8 and B8 panels that are similar form factors to 2017’s W7, E7, C7 and B7 panels. In the LCD space their new models feature greatly improved picture quality and better viewing angles. New LCD models feature the new Alpha7 processor and Full Array Local Dimming which delivers significant on previous edge lit panels.
All new models are 4K Cinema HDR compatible and include Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR by Technicolor, HLG and HDR10 as well as HDR10+
LG have also announced their entry into the AI space with their ThinQ protocol which enables all new LG devices to communicate with each other. The new model TVs are all voice compatible and include Google Assistant meaning you can control devices from the TV and also control the TV from other Google Assistant devices.
