LG 2018 4K TV Lineup – OLED and Super UHD Models

LG’s premium models for the US market are arriving at your local and online retailers. For 2018, LG will offer nine OLED models and seven Super UHD LED models. The OLED displays will consist of the W8, E8, C8 and B8 series, while the Super UHD models will offer the SK9500, SK9000 and SK8000 series.

LG has introduced new technologies for its latest lineup of premium TVs, starting with their new Alpha 9 intelligent processor powering the W8, E8 and C8 series and the Alpha 7 processor which powers the B8 series and the Super UHD models. The technology in these new processors will allow viewers to enjoy more realistic and accurate colors and improved image renderings from virtually any viewing angle.

Furthermore, the Alpha 9 (A9) processor is designed to support high frame rate (HFR) video for producing smoother and clearer motion images at 120 frames per second.

LG has also introduced cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology which they call AI Thin Q. LG ThinQ artificial intelligence combines with LG’s award-winning webOS smart platform to bring new levels of convenience and control to the consumer. This enables 2018 LG TVs to create an intuitive AI experience that uses natural language commands (via remote control) to control TV functions and seamlessly discover and play content, control TV settings, manage schedules, access information and control compatible connected smart home devices including lighting and appliances.

LG’s new 2018 premium 4K Ultra HD TVs will feature Cinema HDR for displaying HDR content; HDR images are dynamically processed frame by frame using LG’s proprietary algorithm, Enhanced Dynamic Tone mapping. Additionally, these TVs will support Advanced HDR by Technicolor, Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (hybrid log-gamma) HDR formats.

The SK9500 and SK9000 Super UHD models will offer Full-Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlighting. This will supposedly enhance the black levels on these displays for deeper blacks and better shadow detail.

On a side note: I’m personally very interested in seeing the 9500 and 9000 in action and assess how well they will handle dark content (images), since they both use IPS panels which are well known for their lack of deep black level capabilities.

On the audio side of things, all models will feature on-board Dolby Atmos processing to enhance you viewing experience.
