LG have unveiled their range of premium 2021 OLED televisions, and they’re even more desirable than ever.
OLED really is the top of the tree when it comes to picture quality, with each individual pixel able to be independently lit – or completely turned off. This means perfect black levels as there’s no backlight.
This year’s models range from the A1 series through to the G1, bringing a selection of top features across the board from super-slim bezels to the even brighter results of the G1 series, thanks to new evo technology. Many models also feature eARC, which allows one cable to transmit the latest formats of audio such as Dolby Atmos, making connection a breeze, while the C1 range upwards feature a new α9 Gen4 AI processor that offers better picture optimisation than ever before.
Sports fans will be keen to check out the handy new “Sports Alert” feature, which gives notifications for Premier League, NBA and NFL games on free-to-air TV, providing match times, scores and more. Hopefully they’ll get the AFL (and NRL) happening on it, too.
Gamers also now get the new “Game Optimiser” feature, which automatically applies the best picture settings according to the genre of game that’s being played, as long as it’s a first-person shooter, RPG or real-time strategy affair.
Meanwhile, the user experience is enhanced via new operating system webOS 6.0, with the user interface mirroring the design of a smartphone while providing faster access to apps, and simpler content discovery. Selected models also feature “Magic Tap” on their remotes, allowing users to connect an NFC-enabled phone to their LG TV to view their photos or mirror favourite apps.
LG’s OLED range starts at 48″, a perfect size for an immersive gaming monitor, or for TV connoisseurs who don’t have a lot of space to play with. Sizes then run through 55″, 65″ and 77″, way up to 83″.
Here’s a look at some of what the new α9 Gen4 AI processor brings to screen:
