CES 2020: LG unveils more than a dozen new OLED TVs
LG attempts to strengthen its hold over the OLED space.
At CES 2020, LG announced a range of 14 new OLED TVs, featuring 8K and 4K displays.
Starting off the set of 4K displays are 3 new "art-inspired" TVs falling under the GX Gallery moniker. The Korean giant also took the covers off its first 48-inch OLED TV. The 4K panel on the relatively compact 48-inch OLED will feature a pixel density close to that of a 96-inch 8K TV.
The brand also announced 6 new 8K NanoCell TVs for consumers who want to get their hands on the high-resolution display tech while it's still in its infancy.
LG's new OLED TVs feature its new Alpha 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. The processor reportedly sports greater processing power than previous iterations and uses artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms to boost picture quality and the overall user experience.
For the avid streamers among us, LG's webOS smart TV platform will support Apple TV this year. This means that subscribers will be able to watch Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels and content, as well as access media already in the iTunes library. Apple TV support on smart TVs isn't new. Samsung and Apple announced support for Apple TV on Samsung's smart TVs around CES 2019.
LG says its new OLED TVs will come with 120Hz refresh rate, which could give sports fans and gamers a smoother viewing experience. LG is also expanding its range of TVs that support Nvidia G-SYNC technology, which aims to reduce screen tearing in games. G-SYNC compatibility will reach 12 of LG's OLED TVs in 2020.
