LG today announced its OLED TV line-up for 2023 during CES 2023. The South Korean manufacturer is back with the well-known series, but of course with various innovations and improvements. The 2023 OLED TV line-up consists of the A3, B3, C3, G3 and Z3 series. Only the Z3 series comes with an 8K resolution.
Higher brightness for the G3 series
The main innovation for the LG 2023 TV lineup is the higher brightness for the G3 models, and then only the 55-inch, 65-inch and 77-inch variants in this series. LG provides these models with a new technique called MLA (Micro Lenses Array). By using tiny lenses, the light emitted by the pixels is better focused and the brightness should increase by up to 20 percent compared to the G2 series from 2022. According to LG, this will also reduce energy consumption.
If we can believe LG, the maximum brightness of a G3 series OLED TV will be just above 2,000 nits this year, although the review must of course show that. It is clear that the South Korean manufacturer is fully committed to that higher brightness, in particular to compete against the violence of the QD-OLED televisions from Sony and Samsung.
LG provides all 2023 OLED models from the C3 series with the new Alpha 9 Gen 6 processor, AI Sound Pro sound with which a virtual 9.1.2 environment can be created and of course HDMI 2.1 ports. The HDMI ports have QMS. As a result, you will no longer get a black screen when switching between signal sources with different frame rates. The Game Optimizer offers support for Nvidia G-Sync, FreeSync Premium and vrr, among others.
LG also announced Wow Orchestra technology to compete with Samsung’s Q-Symphony. This also makes it possible to have a soundbar and a TV work together for the optimal audio experience.
WebOS with Matter
LG will also take care of the smart TV platform in 2023. WebOS 23 has a new interface where the home screen consists of two parts. Ultimately, the user should have more control over what is shown and the interface should be easier to operate. In webOS 23, each user can also have their own avatar, including their own home screen. A new notification system should alert the user to interesting content. It is striking that previously launched LG TVs do not have access to webOS 23. These will continue to run on a maximum of webOS 22.
It is also important that LG has added support for Matter to its televisions. The television can now serve as a hub and devices connected to LG’s ThinQ app can be viewed and controlled via the television. It is likely that Matter support will also come to the 2022 series.
