LG 2019 TVs to include Alexa, extra smarts and 8K

LG unveils massive new 8K TVs

LG Reveals New 4K & 8K ThinQ TVs with Alpha 9 Gen 2 Processor

The 88-inch 8K OLED TV is going to be one of the most expensive TVs to buy in 2019.

LG has announced that it will be showcasing its new 4K TVs at this years CES. We look forward to seeing them in the flesh next week, which is when we'll also also bring you full details about LG's (and rival TV brands') 2019 TV line-up. The first, the Z9, is an 88-inch OLED TV, while the second, the SM99, is a 75-inch LCD TV. LG 2019 TVs with ThinQ AI also feature visually rich Alexa experiences when playing music, checking the weather or accessing a number of visually-enhanced skills, such as finding recipes on the Food Network. The latest HDMI specification supports high frame rate video of up to 120fps, which allows for "smoother and cleaner motion" when rendering fast-moving content such as sports. Support for enhanced audio return channel (eARC) enables home theater enthusiasts to seamlessly utilize HDMI connectivity and enjoy the highest quality audio formats available with superb detail and depth.

While the addition of HDMI 2.1 has huge benefits, users will need new cables to take advantage of all the new additions.

LG is introducing Amazon Alexa alongside the already existing Google Assistant to its new TVs supported by its renewed ThinQ AI technology. Thanks to the processor's deep learning algorithm, the sets will be able to optimize picture and sound quality based on the source content being played, along with the ability to adjust their tone mapping curve and screen brightness to better match ambient lighting conditions in a user's room.

The second set got underway with her showing some power in her serve that helped keep Sabalenka back to lead. After a breakout 2018, Arnya Sabaleka appears to pick up right where she left off - on the way up.

The α9 Gen 2 range includes LG's Z9, W9, E9, and C9 series OLED TVs and it will be revealed at CES 2019.

"The α9 Gen 2 optimizes output based on content type, making voices clearer in movies, dramas and news broadcasts, among others".

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. The new range of LCD TVs will come under the name of NanoCell TV after the name of NanoCell technology which will be used to power the TVs.
