  • LG 2019 TV lineup

LG's giant Z9 8K OLED TV boasts a resolution of 7,680x4,320px (33,117,600 pixels).

The new TVs will run LG's second-generation Alpha 9 processor (α9 Gen 2) and will use a new algorithm to analyse source content and recognise ambient conditions in order to enhance picture and sound.

This is similar to how Apple's HomePod optimizes its sound profile to suit the room its in. The flagship range includes 8K TVs, 88-inch Z9 OLED TVs, and 75-inch SM99 LCD TVs.

We'll embed this on the page as soon as we can but for now you can check out what happened previous year, including some interesting robots and its ThinQ Smart Speaker. Likewise, Dolby's latest imaging innovations will allow the TVs to intelligently configure Dolby Vision content for varying ambient light as well. While the lack of an OLED panel will mean blacks that aren't as deep and a lower contrast ratio, this should still be one of the most engrossing LCD TVs on the market.

The Alpha 9 chip will improve virtual 5.1 surround sound performance as well, with two-channel upmixing and intelligent level adjustment depending on listening positions. Dynamic HDR, higher bitrate audio (Dolby Atmos), and other unique features are supported through the newer HDMI standards.

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

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). Users will be able to make use of voice recognition and an intuitive Home Dashboard.

The new LG Z9, will be running on the new alpha9 Gen 2 CPU like the other top of the line new 2019 4K OLED TVs. Finally, NanoBezel, of course, refers to the thin bezels that LG's LCD sets have this year.

8K isn't exclusive to OLED, either, as LG has leaked details of its new LCD TVs too. That's because they are set to be the first commercial-available sets supporting the new standard, and that's especially important for the 8K TVs LG has just announced. These technologies help the TV to keep up with the uneven frames per second that often happen when playing video games so that there is no screen tearing.
