LG Shows off 8K OLED and Smarter 4K Sets for 2019

Recommended Posts

LG always makes a big splash at CES, and the first glimpse we've had of the 2019 lineup looks great. From the first 8K OLED TV to hit the market to smarter AI and across-the-board improvements, LG's TVs are looking especially good for 2019.

LG Jumps to 8K

The biggest announcement has to be the introduction of the 88-inch Z9 OLED 8K TV, the first OLED to come to market with the higher resolution standard. The sleek TV has an ultra slim design, eye-popping detail and impressive dynamic range. It's also the first 8K TV announced that will offer to perfect black levels and per-pixel lighting that makes OLED such an impressive display technology.

During our hands on time with the new TV, we were impressed not only with the amazing clarity of the picture, but also the vibrant color and brightness. While LG declined to comment on peak brightness levels, it matched some of the brightest TVs we've seen, without sacrificing any of the detailed shadows or mid-range colors that might wash out on a lesser TV.

The second is an 8K LCD set to 75-inch LG NanoCell 8K TV (75SM99), which uses LG's optimized LCD displays and NanoCell film filtering for premium TVs. Like the OLED model, it features incredible resolution, but the LCD display offers excellent brightness and color, two areas where LCD generally outperforms OLED.

With the lack of any 8K content available to Consumers, LG is going to some lengths to ensure that current content looks good on the high-resolution panel. Even on the LG enhances all incoming content by pulling in optimization from deep datasets, offering upscaling and clarity enhancements for any content, from any source.

Both OLED sets will be coming to market in 2019, likely sometime in June or July. Pricing details have not yet been announced.

Smart TVs Get Smarter

The rest of LG's OLED lineup is seeing significant improvements thanks to new Alpha 9 (A9 Gen 2) processing hardware, found in LG's OLED and premium LCD models. The processor handles processing for a cleaner picture, sharper details and a wider look-up table for true-to-life color. Unexpanded video cleanup process removes unwanted artifacts and offers sharper picture from any content source.

While the TV still primarily relies upon Google Assistant for content search and other capabilities, this does open up all of the functionality Amazon offers their customers, including exclusive skills such as Audible audiobook playback, listening to songs through Amazon music, travel booking through Kayak, and more.

The smart TV software is also getting updated as LG rolls out webOS 4.5. The on-screen menu is getting an improvement, adding a second contextual row to the app menu that pops up when you select an app. In this second row, you'll see recently watched content, along with movie recommendations and trending content.

Smart home enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the new version of webOS also includes a feature called Home Dashboard. This dedicated tool lets you manage all of your connected home devices, from smart doorbells to thermostats, right from the TV.

OLED and LCD TVs for 2019

LG's entire lineup is being updated for 2019 with new models coming this spring. Models announced include the premium LG OLED E9, entry level OLED C9, and an updated version of the super thin wallpaper TV the LG Signature W9 OLED. No prices have been announced, but we expect the TVs to begin rolling out this spring.

(Though not yet announced, LG did tell us that the popular LG OLED B9 will be coming out later in 2019. No additional details were shared.)

LG's LCD model line, previously known as Super UHD, is now known as NanoCell. The model line features the new webOS 4.5 platform, and many (though not all) models will include the new Alpha A9 Gen 2 processor, with all of its enhancements.

Pricing details have not yet been announced, but the new models will arrive in stores sometime this spring.

      Hi!
      The TV model number is UH850V and the firmware version is 05.30.30. I often get the WiFi disconnected automatically. I have tried manual mode too but it’s the same. Once disconnected it does not identify any WiFi signal. I have to switch off and switch on the Tv for it to identify a WiFi. 
      I would like to know if this can be fixed by software update or is this an hardware issue.
       
      please help

      LIKE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS I WANTED TO SAVE MONEY BY CUTTING THE CORD AND GET RID OF CABLE. I GUESS THAT WAS MY FIRST MISTAKE. I SEARCHED ONLINE FOR OVER A MONTH FOR A SMART TV WITHIN MY PRICE RANGE.  LOOKED AT EVERYTHING I COULD THINK OF BEFORE I MADE A DECISION. ON EVERY THING I LOOKED AT NOTHING EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF ANY SMART TV THAT I LOOKED AT SO I DIDNT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. THAT WAS ANOTHER MISTAKE. I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET AN LG BECAUSE I ALSO HAVE 2 LG SMART PHONES THAT WORK GREAT SO AN LG TV SHOULD BE EVEN BETTER. I JUST KEEP MAKING THESE MISTAKES. WELL I FINALLY DECIDED ON A 55 INCH LG 556090PUA BECAUSE IT WAS WITHIN MY PRICE AND IT CAME WITH A FREE SOUND BAR PROVIDED BY THE ONLINE STORE I BOUGHT IT FROM. WELL I HOOKED EVERY THING UP AND WHEN I STARTED NOSING AROUND IN THE TV SETTINGS THAT IS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THIS SMART TV STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX BEFORE UPDATES AND BEFORE ANY APPS ARE INSTALLED ONLY COMES WITH 0.54 GB OF INTERNAL MEMORY. IM THINKING NOPE THIS HAS TO BE WRONG BECAUSE EVEN MY FIRESTICK HAS ALMOST 5 GB OF MEMORY  SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SMART TV TO HAVE ALMOST 10  TIMES LESS MEMORY THAN  A FIRESTICK. .ANOTHER MISTAKE. SO I WENT AND UPDATED 2 APPS THAT CAME PREINSTALLED WITH THE TV. I UPDATED YOUTUBE AND I UPDATED PRIME VIDEO. MY 0.54 FELL DOWN TO 0.42 GB.  LG CLAIMS THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD APPS ONTO THEIR TVS BUT YET HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE  WHEN EVERY PREINSTALLED APP ON THIS SMART TV NEEDS UPDATES BUT IF I UPDATE ANY MORE THAN THE 2 THAT I DID I WOULD BE OUT OF MEMORY AND THE LESS MEMORY THAT YOU HAVE THE SLOWER YOUR DEVICE  RUNS. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHO IN BLUE BLAZES EVER THOUGHT TO CALL THIS DUMBER THAN A DUMB TV A SMART TV.  SO NOW IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY I HAVE TO SPEND MONEY. SCRATCHING MY HEAD ON THAT ONE. BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS SMART TV TO BE SMART I HAD TO BUY A FIRESTICK SO I CAN INSTALL PROGRAMS ON IT TO WATCH AS WELL AS BUY AN EXTERNAL MEMORY CARD TO SAVE THINGS TO. ITS A JOKE. THE SMARTEST THING ABOUT THIS TV IS LG ITSELF WHO DECIDED TO MAKE A DUMB TV AND PUT A SMART TV PRICE TAG ON IT. BECAUSE LG KNEW THAT A STUPID GUY LIKE MYSELF WOULD BUY IT FROM THEM AS LONG AS THEY JUST FUDGED THE DETAILS A LITTLE BIT. SO ME BUYING A SMART TV LEFT ME WITH 2 EMPTY POCKETS  WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT A SMART TV WITH ITS OWN VERSION OF THE SCARECROWS CLASSIC ON THE WIZARD OF OZ SINGING IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN. AND LG THEY ARE LAUGHING AT ME THE ENTIRE TIME AS THEY ARE RUNNING THEMSELVES  ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK TO DEPOSIT MY CHECK AND CALLING ME A SUCKER. SO PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK LG. I ADMIT IT YOU GOT ME. BUT THAT MISTAKE WILL NEVER BE MADE AGAIN BY ME. AND ALSO IN HOPES OF OTHERS NOT MAKING THE MISTAKE THAT I DID I HAVE MADE POSTS ON REDDIT FACEBOOK YOUTUBE AND TWITTER ABOUT LG STEALING MONEY OUT OF A WORKING MANS POCKETS  AND I AM NOT DONE BADMOUTHING LG YET. SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWS MY VARIOUS POSTS HAVE GIVEN ME NEW IDEAS ON HOW I CAN GET MY MESSAGE OF LG RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. I DONT GET MAD I GET EVEN. YOU STOLE MONEY FROM ME SO I AM STEALING POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS FROM YOU JUST BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH. OF COURSE LG IF YOU WANT YOU COULD TRY AND SUE ME FOR TRYING TO BESMIRCH THE LG LOGO. BUT IF YOU DO THAT IT WOULD ONLY MAKE LG LOOK EVEN WORSE AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF I GET SUED THAT ALL THAT YOU WILL GET PAID BY ME WOULD BE MONTHLY INSTALLMENTS OF POCKET LINT BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT YOU LEFT ME WITH WHEN YOU SOLD ME A DUMB TV WITH A SMART PRICE TAG. BUNCH OF DAMN WANKERS.

      Hello, Since a few days, I do not have the possibility to watch videos on the application youtube of my TV LG 49UB850V in 4K. In the settings, it stops at 1080p. I have a very good internet connection (fiber optic), and especially, there are still a few weeks, I could do it without problem. A test video of youtube in 4K is only available in 1080p on my tv, while on the computer, it is available in 4K. On my most recent LG 55C8 also by the way, the 4K is possible on this same video. I did the test with lots of videos, same result. LG does not know how to solve the problem, I uninstalled and reinstalled the application but it does not change anything. I did nothing special on my TV before this change, it is done overnight. Do you have the same problem?
