LG Is Bringing Giant 8K TVs To CES 2019

LG Is Bringing Giant 8K TVs To CES 2019

There's a renewed focus on voice commands, with your good friends Alexa and Google Assistant coming built-in to LG's ThinQ AI smart TVs (2018 TVs only came with Google Assistant).

8K isn't exclusive to OLED, either, as LG has leaked details of its new LCD TVs too. While Samsung beat LG to the market with an 8K set, having released the Q900R late previous year, LG is finally ready to ship its own 8K TV to end-users. Once again, the brand will offer a variety of models, with the same imaging tech but different audio support and cosmetics, in the shape of W9 wallpaper, E9 and C9 series. Other features in the new standard include an enhanced audio return channel (eARC) as well as variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM) to keep gamers happy. Now LG has revealed that the former of those sets will be an 88-inch 8K TV. The result is smoother and clearer motion at 120 frames per second for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. This will allow the TVs to be connected to audio equipment without any degradation in audio quality, thanks to support for the highest quality audio formats available.

The company added that there is an inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports.

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.




However if you're feeling like this will be your next TV, we'd start saving. The new models promise to offer a higher level of AI picture and sound experience quality, while it can optimise content based on the ambient conditions around the TV better than ever.

Google Assistant was integrated into LG smart TVs past year, but the company has now made a decision to add Amazon Alexa to give users more options when using the product.

Aside from the 88-inch flagship Z9 OLED TV, the α9 Gen 2 also powers the company's 2019 flagship 75-inch 8K LCD TV (model SM99). Behind the scene TV tech includes ThinQ AI and second-generation Alpha 9 processors.

Also worth noting: LG's 2019 premium LCD TVs lineup (SM9X and SM8X series) will roll out under a new name, NanoCell TV.
