LG Electronics Inc. said on Tuesday that its 8K organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TV will hit the shelves in Europe and North America this month to expand its presence in the high-end segment.
The Korean electronics maker launched an 88-inch 8K OLED TV, which has four times as many pixels as the 4K, at home in July, and plans to bring the premium TV to 10 nations, including Germany, the UK and the US.
The firm said its latest TV is equipped with an artificial intelligence (AI) processor to automatically upgrade lower-resolution content, considering that there is still a limited quantity of 8K content available, Yonhap news agency reported.
The product will be on display during the IFA technology show in Berlin, Europe’s largest consumer electronics show, which runs from September 6-11. (IANS)
LG Electronics (LG) has raised the bar again in 2020 with the launch of 13 new LG OLED models, led by three new art-inspired GX Gallery series 4K Ultra HD TVs, 88- and 77-inch class Real 8Kmodels and an all-new OLED screen size – 48-inch.
Unveiled at CES 2020, the new LG OLED TVs – and new 8K and 4K LG NanoCell LCD TVs – are designed to deliver stunning picture quality and innovative design with upgraded performance and artificial intelligence-enabled features.
At the heart of the latest 8K and 4K LG OLED and 8K LG NanoCell TVs are a number of advanced core technologies, most notably the new I (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. This advanced processor leverages upgraded processing power and artificial intelligence deep learning algorithms to improve picture quality and enable a host of specialised features for various types of content including movies, games and sports, taking the user experience to new heights.
LG’s 2020 premium TVs flaunt unique, elegant designs that integrate effortlessly with any home decor. The all-new minimalist Gallery Series takes design to a whole different level with an ultra-thin form factor – the 65-inch model is a mere 20 millimeters (0.79 inches) thin. Paired with an included specially-designed wall mount, these 55-, 65- and 77-inch class models hang completely flush on the wall.
The 2020 LG OLED ZX Real 8K models, delivering four times more detail than 4K TV and 16 times more than HDTV, exceed the strict requirements established by the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) official industry definition for 8K Ultra HD TVs. The 88- and 77-inch LG OLED models are among the first to earn the new CTA 8K Ultra HD logo.
LG’s 2020 TVs are ideal for serious gamers, delivering the most seamless, immersive big-screen gaming experiences available anywhere. As the first TV manufacturer to offer NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility, LG is expanding this capability in 2020 to 12 OLED TVs to provide a flawless PC gaming experience without screen tearing or other distracting visual artifacts.
In another industry first, 2020 LG OLED TVs feature the HDR Gaming Interest Group’s HGiG Mode so gamers can enjoy high quality visuals as game creators and developers intended when playing HDR games via consoles on their LG TVs. HGiG is a body made up of companies from the game and display industries that develops standards to improve the HDR gaming experience for consumers.
Not only ideal for film buffs and gamers, LG OLED TVs are perfect for sports fans, too, made possible by the new I9 Gen 3 AI Processor – and sports-centric features.
