LG OLED C2 vs LG OLED B2: Design
On an aesthetic level, it should be noted that the LG OLED C2 arrives with some notable changes. Its family of OLED Smart TVs usually offer an exquisite design, and in the case of the LG OLED C2 it now boasts a more minimalist look. All thanks to the OLED.EX panel that it incorporates, although the company wants to define it as an advanced EVO panel, the LG OLED C2 will have a screen with these characteristics. And this translates into better image quality, higher brightness, and a detail to take into account: its front frames have been reduced to the minimum expression (6 mm in 2022 compared to 10.2 mm in 2021).
Regarding the LG OLED B2, the truth is that on an aesthetic level we see very few changes compared to last year’s model. It uses the same mount for the TV and the frames stay pretty much the same. Something to expect if you take into account that the LG OLED B2, like the A2, will feature the same panel as the 2021 LG OLED B1 and A1 TVs.
In short, the LG C2 has indeed undergone a change in its design, especially standing out for the minimalist frames on the front so that the screen is the main protagonist of your living room, while the LG OLED B2 maintains the lines of its predecessor.

Another detail that makes the difference between both models has to do with the processor. And it is that, the LG OLED C2 debuts the new α5 Gen5 AI Processor, that promises better scaling performance among other features that make a difference, while the silicon heart of the LG OLED B2 is made up of the same processor as last year.
