LG’s 88-inches 8K OLED TVs Range for 2019 Announced

LG unveils massive new 8K TVs

LG has shown a prototype of its 8K OLED TV in 2018.

TV tech is always big at CES and LG has started drip-feeding information about this year's OLED and LCD TVs.

According to the company, the name change highlights the picture enhancement provided by NanoCell technology which is the main feature of the new TVs. Furthermore, all 2019 OLED TVs and selected NanoCell TVs with ThinQ AI will support high frame rate (HFR) through HDMI 2.1. The result will be a smoother and clearer motion for better rendering of fast-action content when watching sports and action movies.

As for what it's like, we'll let you know when we find out, but for now, expect a proper announcement sometime next week, alongside all the other TVs LG plans on releasing. Like the Z9, the SM99 boasts 16 times the resolution of a full HD TV, while it's four times the resolution of a 4K TV.

Unfortunately, because this is more an announcement on the chip itself, LG hasn't yet announced pricing on its TVs, which means there's no word yet on how much either an 8K OLED or 8K LCD TV will cost you from LG.

Of course, there are many additional improvements coming to the 2019 LG OLED TVs.

It's not just high frame rates that come through support for HDMI 2.1, however.

While the addition of HDMI 2.1 has huge benefits, users will need new cables to take advantage of all the new additions.

A week after announcing the CineBeam Laser 4K Projector with Ultra Short Throw technology, LG Electronics has introduced its 2019 range of flagship TVs with ThinQ AI.

Google Assistant was integrated into LG smart TVs previous year, but the company has now chose to add Amazon Alexa to give users more options when using the product. The enhanced α9 Gen 2 processor, coupled with a deep learning algorithm, can analyze the source quality and dynamically determine the best method for optimal visual and audio output.

LG's new Alpha 9 processor includes ThinQ AI, a new system that will automatically adjust brightness and audio based on content and environment. There's no mention of the usual middle-sitting G series TV, however, so we can guess its been scrapped. They'll also be available on LG's flagship LCD models, which have been renamed "NanoCell".
