LG unveils massive new 8K TVs

No pricing has been unveiled for the new 8K sets. This year will be no different and here's all the details for the LG press conference for 2019 and what gadgets to expect.

This is similar to how Apple's HomePod optimizes its sound profile to suit the room its in.

Both the α9 generation-two processor and ThinQ AI will be available on all of LG's 2019 OLED models, which includes the Z9, W9, E9 and C9.

We'll embed this on the page as soon as we can but for now you can check out what happened a year ago, including some interesting robots and its ThinQ Smart Speaker.

Additionally, by leveraging Dolby's latest imaging innovation, which intelligently adjusts Dolby Vision content, the TVs deliver HDR with varying ambient light.

In terms of sound quality, the Alpha 9 processor can even mix audio so that the TV set sounds like a 5.1 surround sound system.

Another software feature that's making its way into tons of gadgets is digital assistants.

LG's AI technology brand, ThinQ AI allows 2019 TV owners to connect devices in the home using Google Assistant or the newly added Amazon Alexa. The company says users can change channels by using Alexa voice control. LG's NanoCell TVs also offer AI-enhanced picture and sound, powered by a deep learning algorithm, as well as the streamlined experience offered by ThinQ.

NanoColour refers to the technology that helps push a wide colour gamut onto the TV. Finally, NanoBezel, of course, refers to the thin bezels that LG's LCD sets have this year.

The most expensive of the lot will possibly be the 88-inch LG Z9 TV which will be an OLED TV with a resolution of 8K, offering a sharp, vivid and detailed picture quality through 8K upscaling and improved noise reduction.

To begin with, the televisions will support up to 4K and 120 frames per second thanks to the HDMI 2.1 ports that come with enough bandwidth (48 Gbps) to go beyond the 4K and 60 frames per second limit of the HDMI 2.0 revision. The OLED TVs supports enhanced audio return channel (eARC), which seems to be a good option for gamers as the new TVs are compatible with the variable refresh rate (VRR) as well as automatic low latency mode (ALLM), which is said to deliver a clean image and eliminate screen tearing. The TV will do likewise for sports games, TV shows, video games, concerts, etc.
