LG Electronics Australia is launching its 2020 TV range from this month, comprised of 27 models, led by two premium OLED 8K models available in 88- and 77-inch with eye-watering price tags of $71,999 and $35,999 respectively.
The OLED 8K TVs are supported by the 4K OLED Gallery Series, 4K OLED, Nanocell 8K and NanoCell 4K models.
The GX Gallery Series (pictured below), available in 55-, 65 and 77-inch, offers a minimalist aesthetic in an ultra-thin form factor with the 65-inch model measuring only 20mm in thickness without the need for a separate control box and can be mounted flush to the wall. The GX Gallery Series also features hands free voice control with access to LG’s ThinQ AI platform, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
The 2020 LG 8K TVs are powered by the third-generation Alpha 9 Gen 3 AI Processor offering additional processing power and advanced deep learning algorithms to enhance picture and sound quality, as well as optimise content through AI 8K upscaling.
In 2020, LG OLED TVs support Dolby Vision IQ and Filmmaker Mode to display movies as creators intended, while NanoCell TVs support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision titles from leading streaming services.
LG has integrated streaming services including Apple TV, Disney+, Netflix and Amazon Prime that can be accessed from the LG Home Launcher or webOS. With the Apple TV app, users can subscribe and watch Apple TV+ and access iTunes video library and buy or rent movies and TV shows.
The 2020 TV line up also supports Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit for users to share or mirror content from a compatible iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to the TV. Users can also monitor and control compatible IoT devices directly from the TVs Home Dashboard using voice commands with LG ThinQ voice recognition built-in and Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa compatibility.
LG is the first manufacturer to offer NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility on its 10 new OLED models for rendered graphics and increased immersion by adapting the TVs refresh rate to the frame rate of the connected hardware.
Supporting the latest HDMI specifications including eARC and ALLM for higher quality audio and lag free performance, LG 8K models can play native 8K content from HDMI and USB digital inputs and support 8K content streaming. LG’s OLED and select NanoCell TVs support HDMI VRR making LG the only TV brand offering compatibility with a variety of gaming devices such as graphic cards and gaming consoles.
