The age of 8K TVs seems to be taking its first steps with brands like LG and Samsung betting on this resolution. To spice up this rivalry, LG has just announced eight new 8K-resolution televisions.
LG points out that its new TVs feature “real 8K”. A statement that comes as a direct affront to Samsung, as Samsung has been fencing arguments about who truly offers this resolution.
LG’s new TVs range from 65 to 88 inches
The South Korean company has introduced two new LG Signature OLED 8K Premium TVs with dimensions of 77 or 88 inches. There are six other LG NanoCell, which range in size from 65 to 75 inches.
All televisions come equipped with the Alpha 9 Gen 3 processor capable of optimizing sound and image quality. This processor is still capable of making upscale for 8K and supports 5.1 surrond sound.
Unlike other televisions featured in the past, this new range does not require any external accessories to play AV1 content from Youtube. In addition, it supports HEVC and VP9 codecs. Its HDMI inputs can play content at 8K at 60fps.
Alexa and Google Assistant with native support
No matter which model you choose, you are guaranteed to be able to use the two most popular virtual assistants on the market. Not stopping here, LG has added support for HomeKit and AirPlay 2.
This will allow you to control other smart home devices directly on these televisions. Of course, you can perform many tasks using only voice commands.
Prices are not known yet
Looking at the characteristics of these televisions, it is believed that their prices will be the most affordable in the market. However, this information is still unclear and is expected to be disclosed at CES. South Korea is also expected to take the opportunity to give us more information about its availability.
