LG’s 2020 4K and 8K OLED TVs are coming to the US this month

LG has announced that its 2020 range of TVs will start to become available in the US and South Korea this month. We saw the lineup back at CES in January, and some of the highlights include:

  • The BX and CX are the new entries in LG’s mainstream B- and C-series of 4K OLED TVs. (Basically LG is going with “X” across the lineup this year, so the BX is the successor to the 2019 B9, and so on.) This year there’s a new 48-inch model in addition to the 55-inch, 65-inch, and 77-inch options.
  • The Gallery GX series is a premium 4K OLED line designed to be mounted on a wall, with ultra-slim form factors that don’t need separate boxes for the electronics. It’s available in sizes of 55, 65, and 77 inches.
  • The ZX series includes LG’s latest 8K OLED models, with 77-inch and 88-inch sizes available. They’re the successor to last year’s Z9, the world’s first 8K OLED TV, which only came in 88-inch form.
  • LG is also releasing seven 8K sets in its NanoCell LCD TV series, including 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch variants. (This makes for a pretty wild dot pitch on that 55-inch model — it’ll be roughly as sharp as a 27-inch 4K monitor.)

LG’s 2020 TV lineup supports modern specs like HDMI 2.1, enabling features such as variable refresh rates up to 120Hz; 12 models are officially G-Sync compatible. They also all ship with the UHD Alliance’s Filmmaker Mode, which is intended to help display movies the way the director intended with minimal post-processing. Most of the models include LG’s new third-generation Alpha 9 AI image processor.

Following the US and South Korea launches, these TVs will make their way to Europe and other regions. We’ve asked LG for pricing information.
