The G2 series enter a new 83-inch model and another of 97, which come to complement the 55, 65 and 77-inch versions that were already present in that line.
On the other hand, the C2 series will now allow you to choose one large selection of sizes. They will be sold in a total of six versions of 48, 55, 65, 77 and 83 inches. It is the ideal line for those looking for a OLED panel for gaming, since, in addition to the refresh rate, the use of VRR or the quality of the panel itself, it is the line that offers more size options, allowing us not to rule out the purchase for something as typical as the fact that the television is too much great for our living room.
Finally, the ranges A2 and B2 will continue to use an OLED panel of the previous generation, but now they support HDMI 2.1 with 4K resolution and with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. We imagine that the price will be reduced somewhat accordingly.
The high-end of the house are therefore, until new presentations, with these models:
OLED Evo range
- C2 series
- G2 series
- Z2 series
Mid-range: powered by QNED MiniLED
LG has not wanted to neglect its LCD panels. Last year, Koreans also bet on the MiniLED with its range of QNED televisions. And this year, the line is strengthened pointing even to the 8K resolution, present in the new QNED99, a huge television of 86 inches and the QNED95, which is also 8K, but stays with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and therefore, it will be somewhat cheaper.
On the other hand, the QNED Mini LED range closes with two more new models, the QNED90 and the QNED85. These two devices have not yet confirmed their release date, but they will arrive with 4K resolution and panels of 120 Hz with 100% color space accuracy thanks to the new system LG Precision Dimming Technology. As a novelty, both teams will support the standard HDMI 2.1, Dolby Atmos sound and intelligent HDR enhancement by Dolby IQ. Everything will be managed by processors Alpha 7 Gen 4.
The Koreans promise that this new batch of QNED Mini LED panels are richer when it comes to color rendering, while at the same time increases the depth of blacks. This section is very important for the brand, since the mid-range has not been left behind if we compare these QNED with the new proposals that the competition has also brought as a novelty to this CES of 2022. These panels also improve in terms of angles of vision is concerned, further maximizing the user experience and demonstrating that MiniLED technology has come to stay.
This is how the new mid-range of this 2020 is formed for the moment:
WebOS system: jump to version 22
In 2021, LG published its new version of webOS, 6.0, which offered substantial changes compared to its classic interface. This 2022, LG has surprised us again, because its version for this year will not be 7.0, but 22.
The reasons for this jump are quite sensible. LG does not allow its TV systems to be updated from one year to the next, which they have been doing forever and we don’t like it as consumers. But with this marketing maneuver, they make clear their intention that the webOS operating system is tied to the TV. Still, we’d love for LG to do more in this field, allowing users to update their TVs for a longer period of time. After all, most users when they buy a television, they do so with the intention of being durable, and the obstacles in the field of software cloud the experience a bit.
In any case, the new version allows create personal profiles, in true Google TV style. With this change, each member of the house will be able to have their own custom interface, with artificial intelligence and recommendations gaining much more prominence.
Each user can log into their profile with their own remote control or using an app for smartphones, called NFC Magic Tap, which also serves to make screen mirroring from the mobile content to the TV.
Additional services in webOS 22
Depending on your location, you will be able to access a new series of services offered by LG on its televisions, which are the following:
- LG Fitness: aims to get us in shape by following different training programs directly from the home television.
- LIVENow: it is a streaming service so that we can view different live events such as sports, music events and other shows.
- 1M HomeDance: his mission will be to make us dance to the rhythm of K-Pop.
- Independent: this is a new video calling service that will help members of our family.
As you can see, many of these functions have their inspiration in the pandemic, something that is happening in most of the large manufacturers that we know.
