Yesterday, LG unveiled a variety of display devices to be displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020), such as a roll-screen TV that can roll down the ceiling. Today, however, we know about other product lines, such as up to eight new “true 8K TVs”. These include signature OLED models (88/77 inches) and six NanoCell models (67/75-inch Nano99, Nano97, Nano95) and more.

According to the 8K Ultra HD definition standard set by the Consumer Technology Association, manufacturers only need to guarantee a minimum of 50% contrast modulation.
However, LG wants to meet the future needs of consumers, pushing for a more comprehensive “true 8K experience” that supports a variety of sources, including USB and HDMI (8K , 60fps), as well as codecs in heVC, VP9, AV1, and more.
LG’s new TV is equipped with a third-generation alpha9 AI processor that further optimizes image and audio quality and lifts content to 8K resolution.
The processor can also modify more natural skin tones, facial features, more readable characters, and even intelligently identify content on your TV and automatically make appropriate settings changes.
In addition, the AI Sound Pro feature recognizes five types of audio content, including music, movies, sports, theater, or news, and enhances accordingly (bringing a 5.1 surround experience).
You can even manage IoT devices with a new TV and support hands-free voice control. The company says its speech recognition technology can be used in 144 markets.
WebOS software can also support Apple AirPlay/HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa, and even Alexa Premium’s far-field voice in the future.
Finally, the Consumer Electronics Show kicks off on January 7th, and interested friends can keep an eye on the site’s follow-up.
