LG 2023 OLED TV range and soundbars revealed ahead of CES

LG 2023 OLED TV range

Ahead of CES 2023, LG has revealed its 2023 OLED TV range, promising greater viewing immersion and an improved user experience through a redesigned webOS interface.

Z3, G3, and C3 OLED evo series TVs comprise LG’s latest displays, packing the new a9 AI Processor Gen6, up from last year’s Gen5 models. This upgraded processor powers various visual AI Picture Pro features like improved upscaling and more lifelike HDR representation of people’s faces and other important subjects. Additionally, LG AI Sound Pro delivers what LG describes as virtual 9.1.2 surround sound from the TV’s speakers.

Alongside the OLED TVs’ reputation for deep blacks, high brightness, and strong colour accuracy, LG’s upcoming panels all include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support, best enjoyed with compatible movies and games. For gamers, the TVs feature a 0.1 millisecond response time, and up to four HDMI 2.1a ports supporting variable refresh rates (VRR).

G3 model gets exclusive brightness boost technology

Specific to the OLED evo G3 series is LG Brightness Boost Max, a technology designed to further increase the panel’s brightness. At an algorithmic and light control level, the TV maps and controls brightness for each pixel. LG claims this results in sharper and more realistic images.

Another G3-specific benefit is a visual overhaul to make the TV look nicer in the living room. Its One Wall Design doesn’t leave a visible gap when mounted to a wall, blending in even more with your room’s furnishings.

A refreshed webOS experience for LG 2023 OLED TVs

Dubbed “All New Home”, the redesigned user interface comes with the latest version of LG’s TV software webOS, shipping with the new TVs. According to the company, the UI includes more personalisation options and greater convenience. “Quick Cards” let you access regularly visited content grouped by categories like Home Office, Gaming, and Sports. Plus, AI Concierge provides you with curated recommendations based on your viewing habits and search history.

2023 LG soundbars bring versatile audio to the living room

To complement the 2023 OLED TV range, LG also announced two new soundbars: the SC9 and SE6 models, ready to show at CES 2023. Both support Dolby Atmos and IMAX enhanced quality powered by DTS:X, while connecting seamlessly with LG TVs.

Aimed at producing a more authentic sound, pairing either soundbar with an LG TV enables WOW Orchestra, a feature that uses all of the audio channels across both the soundbar and TV to create an expanded soundstage. Additionally, WOWCAST lets you wirelessly connect the 2023 soundbars with LG TVs, all the while maintaining audio quality.

As the flagship model of the two, the SC9 supports seamless wall or stand mounting to the C series OLED TVs, letting you position the device to get the best audio experience. Meanwhile, the compact SE6 soundbar is suited for smaller spaces but still packs an audio punch.

Neither the 2023 LG OLED TVs nor the soundbars have a confirmed local release date yet. Once we get details, including pricing and a listing on the company’s site, we’ll let you know.
