CES 2019 is not yet started, but LG is already reporting on OLED and LCD TVs. Until we mentioned the portable OLED we are looking for, he made a list with model numbers for two 8K sets, with the 88-inch Z9 OLED and SM99 8K LCD TV on the road.
There is no word yet about the price, but the big confirmation is that thanks to the HDMI 2.1 sockets, all 2019 OLED TVs and the "selected" NanoCell LCD TVs will support a high-frequency 120fps high-frequency video (HFR) video input. Other features in the new standard include enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) as well as VRR and Automatic Low Latency (ALLM) mode to keep gamers happy. If you've redirected one of the new 8K TVs, you'll just be pleased to know that you will not need to plug in four HDMI cables to get everything connected.
The name of NanoCell is the new brand for high-end LCD TVs LG (SM9X and SM8X) with improved colors, viewing angles and slim frames. As usual, LG also talks about its AI capabilities with Thinq technology, and the new Prime Video button on its Magic Remote, which connects directly to the Alexa routines on Amazon.
