Explore LG Labs, the Hub of Innovation
By News Reporter
Home should be comfortable. Home should be safe. Home should also be easy to manage and that’s exactly what the latest Internet of Things (IoT) and smart home technologies1 are designed to help do. With its LG ThinQ smart home platform, LG enables users to enjoy optimal comfort and convenience throughout their living spaces and daily lives. The company recently shared its vision for the home of tomorrow at the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) conference in Seoul, South Korea.
A board member of CSA, the organization that developed the Matter open standard for smart home technology, LG is committed to offering seamless integration between LG ThinQ and other smart home platforms. The company also envisions a Zero Labor Home where LG ThinQ leverages AI and contextual understanding to predict users’ needs and provide tailored services that make everything easier. Based on the three core pillars of evolution, connectivity and openness, here’s how LG ThinQ opens up new possibilities and an unprecedented level of convenience at home.
Evolution for an Innovative Customer Experience
The constant evolution of LG ThinQ highlights LG’s determination to improve and innovate the customer experience. Utilizing AI technology, LG ThinQ (and the smart appliances and devices it connects with) can analyze usage data to learn users’ habits and preferences, creating a personalized experience that becomes better over time. For an even smarter, more customized home experience, ThinQ platform is planning to adopt AI-powered technologies into its services such as ChatGPT and AI-based voice ID. Available right now, the LG ThinQ UP lineup presents home appliances that can evolve to meet each user’s unique taste and lifestyle needs and can be continuously upgraded with downloadable features via the ThinQ app.
Expanded Smart Home Ecosystem With Enhanced Connectivity
To ensure users can enjoy the ever-expanding smart home ecosystem to the fullest, no matter where they are, LG ThinQ aims to further strengthen connectivity. The ThinQ app makes it possible to remotely control LG appliances from a smartphone or tablet, meaning users can adjust and monitor all their gadgets from practically any location. In addition, LG is working on connecting various IoT devices through Matter; creating a hub where users can effortlessly manage Matter-certified appliances and devices from LG and other companies through the ThinQ app. LG currently supports most types of Matter devices including lighting as well as sensors and will continue to expand the connectivity with more devices.
Openness for Integrated Experiences
LG actively pursues an open innovation strategy to improve the usability and convenience of ThinQ. Along with globally-popular AI platforms, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, ThinQ is compatible with Google Calendar, a multitude of third-party apps and connected car services; enabling it to provide users with a range of useful, oft-accessed information through a single app. LG is also working with diverse companies including content platform providers to enhance the ThinQ experience and is always open to new collaborations that add value to its smart home platform.
Zero Home Labor, the Future of Smart Home
Built around its three core pillars, LG ThinQ is delivering better user experiences that will ultimately lead to the realization of the Zero Labor Home, LG’s vision for the future of the smart home.
In the Zero Labor Home, LG ThinQ is the quiet, always-present household assistant that learns the patterns of one’s daily life, making suggestions and proactively managing chores as well as tasks so that it is easy to relax and enjoy spending time in an optimized living environment. Without the user having to do a thing, the ThinQ connected-air conditioner can turn itself on and operate at the ideal air volume and temperature while the air purifier and robot vacuum cleaner automatically swing into action to keep the air and floor inside the home clean. To keep household energy consumption in check, users can monitor how much power their devices are using – individually and collectively – in real time via the ThinQ app. Additionally, once a user has registered an LG appliance on ThinQ, each subsequent LG appliance they purchase will automatically be connected under their ThinQ profile, saving time and hassle.2
With evolution, connectivity and openness at its heart, LG ThinQ is making LG’s vision for a better life at home a reality, giving customers a smart, serene space that delivers convenience, freedom and comfort on a whole new level. To learn more about LG ThinQ, visit

Recognized for LG’s Outstanding Contributions as a
Top Supplier in 2022 for Infotainment and Telematics Category
SEOUL, March 27, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has been recognized by General Motors (GM) as an excellent supplier for its achievements in the areas of infotainment and telematics at GM’s 31st Annual Supplier of the Year Award. This year’s ceremony, which took place this week in Texas, USA, centered on the theme of ‘Momentum’.
For nearly two decades, LG and GM have been teaming up to bring new innovations to the automotive industry. GM selected LG’s telematics control module for its OnStar service in 2006, and in 2016, based on an electric vehicle project carried out in partnership with LG. LG also provided the world’s first digital cockpit with P-OLED automotive displays for the groundbreaking 2021 New Cadillac Escalade, helping to raise the advanced in-vehicle experience and human-machine interface (HMI) design to new heights.
During the recent pandemic, LG continued to furnish GM with high-quality auto parts without any interruption, despite the difficulties caused by the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. Last year, LG also received the Supply Chain Guarantee Award from SAIC General Motors (SAIC-GM), the joint venture between GM and China’s largest automaker, SAIC Motor. Since 2014, GM has named LG a trustworthy supplier six times.
Through an extensive research and development program, and based on digitalization and the use of its advanced core technologies, LG is focusing on delivering new in-car experiences and greater value to its automaker partners. As part of this, LG is creating an innovative HMI for software-defined vehicles (SDV) that will integrate various vehicle components, collecting and analyzing real-time environmental data. The information displayed through the new HMI will support drivers to make better on-road decisions and help enhance the comfort and safety of all driving occupants.
“We are thrilled to recognize these outstanding suppliers after yet another challenging year in the automotive industry,” said Jeff Morrison, GM vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They overcame countless obstacles and exemplified what it means to be resilient, resourceful and determined. Beyond that, these suppliers demonstrated their commitment to sustainable innovation and to driving advanced solutions in collaboration with the GM team.”
“As our steady and solid partnership with GM suggests, LG has become a trusted and respected innovative partner to leading players in the automotive industry,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company. “Moving forward, LG will continue to collaborate, create and contribute to the realization of the future mobility era.”

With its market leadership strengthening significantly over the last decade, LG continues to offer constantly evolving, exclusive values through LG OLED TVs ushering in a new era for the television as well as LG QNED TVs rejuvenating the LCD space. Aligning with its Sync to You, Open to All vision, LG’s newest TV additions are akin to home hubs designed to enrich everyday life through cutting-edge technologies.
LG’s 2023 TV lineup, which will be available in Korea and global markets starting this month, highlights a decade of OLED technology advancements with premium self-lit picture quality, cutting-edge image processing for brighter, crisper images and an enhanced webOS platform equipped with more smart features and services.
With an award-winning reputation for exceptional picture quality, contrast, inky blacks and wide viewing angles, LG OLED TVs have outdone themselves yet again by offering flawless performance as well as the widest selection of resolutions (4K, 8K, etc.), form factors (rollable OLED, bendable OLED), designs and sizes (42 to 97 inches1), giving users the freedom to choose the perfect screen for their unique needs, preferences and homes.
A significant upgrade coming to this year’s OLED evo G3 series is LG’s Brightness Booster Max technology, which incorporates brand-new light control architecture and light-boosting algorithms to increase brightness by up to 70 percent2. Brightness is mapped and controlled on a pixel-by-pixel basis, resulting in sharper, more realistic images. The OLED evo G3 series also applies Super Anti Reflective technology3 to reduce visual distractions such as light glares and reflections, and even introduces the world’s largest OLED TV (97 inches) for next-level immersion on a grand scale.
The new α9 AI Processor Gen6 of 2023 OLED evo series leverages sophisticated AI-assisted Deep Learning technology to deliver top-notch picture and sound quality through AI Picture Pro, which improves upscaling so that content can be experienced exactly how the creators intended. On top of this, OLED Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro reveals hidden details to bring greater depth to every frame and AI Sound Pro fills the room with virtual 9.1.2 surround sound from the TV’s built-in speakers to place viewers into the scene. Furthermore, LG’s latest TVs and soundbars4 work seamlessly together and create three-dimensional sound, courtesy of WOW Orchestra.
Inspired to invent unique lifestyle experiences through its Life’s Good philosophy and Sync to You, Open to All vision, LG is revolutionizing the TV’s role at home by syncing viewers’ experiences with their unique tastes and lifestyles through new features, designs and much more.
Featuring the latest webOS, this year’s models introduce the All-New Home, a redesigned user interface (UI) offering a wealth of customization options and convenience. New Quick Cards – convenient categories such as Home Office, Gaming, Music and Sports – present users with the best way to access their most-viewed content and services.
Designed for all, the new webOS makes it easy for anyone using the TV to enjoy personalized recommendations, which are determined based on viewing history and viewing habits. AI Concierge not only curates content based on past usage and searches, but also suggests trending titles and useful settings and features – from Family Care and Eye Comfort to Multi-View mode.
To create the most seamless cross-device experience, LG’s latest TVs are compatible with the new smart home standard, Matter, giving users the ability to control and monitor various smart home devices from a growing list of global manufacturers on their TV.
Also being added to LG’s 2023 TV lineup are new QNED TVs leveraging Quantum Dot NanoCell Color technology to produce rich, accurate and lifelike colors that complete the unforgettable viewing experience. Equipped with QNED Million Grey Scale Block Dimming technology,5 the latest QNED Mini LED TVs come the closest to the contrast and black levels of OLED. What’s more, LG’s 2023 Mini LED TVs not only boast 64-times-greater contrast than their predecessors to achieve one million dynamic gradations, but also designs that are slimmer and harmonize with LG’s newest soundbars.
LG’s latest QNED Mini LED TVs are branded as ‘QNED evo’ TVs only in Korea
LG has implemented various features to help people of all abilities use its products, like voice descriptions when navigating menus, on-screen content and search results. Should the TV switch to standby mode, the user will receive voice notifications detailing the screen’s status and recommended actions. Also, by long-pressing LG Magic Remote’s mute button, users can find the Learn TV Remote feature which teaches them how to use the smart remote’s handy features. Finally, the Sign Language Zoom feature lets hearing-impaired users enlarge the sign language interpreter on screen.
LG is also championing environmental sustainability by reducing its plastic usage during TV production, and by ramping up its use of recycled plastics and materials featuring single-color printing.

They are playing flawlessly in Laptop and Mobile, but not in LG TV backed by webOS.
