LG Takes On Samsung With 88in 8K OLED, First HDMI 2.1 TVs

The brand is also promising HDMI 2.1 ports on all its 2019 OLED screens and select NanoCell TVs.

Besides, the information on the rollable LG OLED TV concept (unveiled last year) is still scarce as the company hasn't mentioned about it.

The latest processor from LG will also power LG's 2019 range of premium LCD TVs including the 75-inch LG SM99 8K LCD TV. That's not likely to remain that way for long, however, as Samsung has already committed to support the HDMI 2.1 standard through a software update for the Q900R, and we could learn about that at CES 2019, but since launch the 8K TV has been locked to 30 fps in 8K. This Collection includes Z9, W9, E9, and C9 models. In addition, the new TVs target gamers with compatibility with variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM), which help deliver a clean image, without stutter or tearing.

Considering the unanimous success of LG's 2018 TVs, any improvements brought in newer sets should be worth getting excited about. This will result in a smoother and clearer motion and would provide vivid experience for fast-paced contents such as action movies or games. 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. While the connector itself isn't changing, new cables might be necessary to get the full advantage of the new standard. The newly announced lineup supports Google Assistant as well as Amazon's Alexa.

Jury to decide if Ed Sheeran 'copied' Marvin Gaye's hit song
The classic track hit number one in 1973 while Thinking Out Loud topped the United Kingdom single charts in 2014. Stanton said he found "substantial similarities between several of the two works' musical elements".

However if you're feeling like this will be your next TV, we'd start saving. These new TVs will be shown off at CES 2019 next week and LG have said that they will come with their ThinQ AI and also their Alpha 9 Gen 2 processor. LG claims that the Alpha 9 second-gen processor comes with a deep learning algorithm that offers a higher level of AI picture and sound quality, as well as better optimised content by recognising ambient conditions.

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.

A lot of these settings and feature have been around for a while in PC monitors and speakers, so it's nice to see them come to high-end TVs where they can improve on the TV watching experience.
