LG previews 2018 OLED, Super UHD TV range

With AI and advanced processor.

LG Electronics has unveiled its 2018 TV line-up of OLED and Super UHD models at a launch event in Seoul. The new TVs feature the company’s exclusive ThinQ artificial intelligence (AI) technology and advanced α (Alpha) processor.

There are 10 AI-enabled OLED TV models for 2018, including the W8, G8, E8, C8, and B8. Each model boasts a range of design aspects from Picture-on-Wall (model 77/65W8), to One Glass Screen (model 65G8), Picture-on-Glass (model 65/55E8) and Cinema Screen design (model 77/65/55C8 and 65/55B8). Screen sizes range from 55 to 77 inches with nine AI-enabled SUPER UHD TVs (model SK95, SK85 and SK80) available in sizes varying from 49 to 75 inches.

With LG’s α (Alpha) 9 intelligent processor powering the W8, G8, E8 and C8 OLED TV series, viewers will experience enhanced image rendering and more accurate colours from virtually any viewing angle, as well as perfect black levels, in addition to Dolby Atmos sound.

The 2018 AI-enabled Super UHD line-up is powered by LG’s α (Alpha) 7, the same processor found in the B8 series. In combination with Nano Cell and FALD backlighting, LG AI-enabled Super UHD TVs offer the most advanced LCD picture quality ever with deeper blacks, enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and accurate colours from the widest viewing angles. The TVs also support Dolby Atmos.

With AI functionality, users can speak directly into the remote control thanks to Natural Language Processing (NLP) to deliver intelligent voice-activated control and connectivity based on LG’s exclusive deep learning platform, Deep ThinQ.

LG’s ThinQ AI-enabled TVs support services based on the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) to deliver real-time information and locate channels offering the desired content. Viewers can say “search for this movie’s soundtrack” or “turn off the TV when this program is over” without repeating the program’s title or specifying a time. The TVs can access other smart home products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, smart lights, smart speakers and other devices that connect to the TV via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

LG Home Entertainment president, Brian Kwon said, “Our top-tier OLED and Super UHD TV line-up for 2018 demonstrates the highest advancement in TV technology. LG continues to be at the forefront of the global display industry by offering consumers the best possible viewing experience with technologies such as ThinQ AI and advanced industry-leading processors.”
