LG unveils new TVs for 2022

LG Electronics (LG) unveiled its 2022 TV line-up at CES recently, with its OLED TVs headlining.

The new devices will feature powerful imaging technologies and an improved webOS interface, offering smart features and services.

In the case of LG OLED, the new G2 series models are set to be the next step in OLED evolution.

The LG 2022 G2 series introduces a new 83-inch model and the world’s first 97-inch OLED model to complement the 55-, 65- and 77-inch TVs already in the line-up.

The LG G2 series delivers a refined design with its attractive flush-to-the-wall Gallery Design. LG C2 series offers a diverse selection of screen sizes with a total of six for 2022: world’s first 42-inch OLED TV, ideal for console and PC gaming, in addition to 48-, 55-, 65-, 77-, and 83-inches. This OLED TV series features thin bezels for an immersive viewing experience in addition to giving the TV a sleeker look.

The new webOS 22 introduces personal profiles so users can enjoy a customised viewing experience. Under each profile, users can set up fast access to their favourite streaming services, get tailored content recommendations based on viewing history and receive real time alerts to keep up with favourite sports teams. Logging into profiles can be performed either from the TV browser or from a smartphone with NFC Magic Tap.

NFC Magic Tap can also be used to mirror a mobile device screen to an LG TV.  Viewers can also mirror content from one LG TV to another in the home using Room To Room Share, which enables the viewing of cable or satellite content on another TV via Wi-Fi without an additional set-top-box.

What’s more, upgraded LG ThinQ AI will allow 2022 LG TVs to become smart home hubs. In addition to providing users with voice control, and compatibility with other ThinQ-powered devices, LG ThinQ AI now offers support for Matter, a new industry standard for a more secure and seamlessly connected smart home, which will allow LG TVs to work as a controller for connected devices.

All 2022 LG OLED TVs are certified flicker-free by both TÜV Rheinland and Underwriters Laboratories, and verified as “discomfort glare-free” by UL. LG OLED panels have also been recognised by TÜV Rheinland for their low blue light performance and are the first in the world that meet the low blue light emission requirement of Eyesafe, a U.S.-based health standards agency. Returning to LG TVs in 2022 is Filmmaker Mode, which ensures users can watch movies as the creators intended, offering auto switching when enjoying Amazon Prime Video content.

LG also unveiled an expanded QNED TV line-up for 2022. Boasting LG Quantum Dot NanoCell technology, the fresh range offers stellar colour reproduction with 100% colour volume. Able to deliver rich, accurate colours in bright and dark areas of a scene, LG QNED Mini LED TV is capable of clear contrast thanks to LG Precision Dimming Technology. All models starting from the QNED90 Series are certified for 100% colour consistency so viewers see the same high-quality image each time, even at different viewing angles.12

In 2022, LG is also set to redefine the role of the TV in the home, with the addition of new services that facilitate personal and interactive experiences at home. These include:

  • LIVENow – The award-winning LIVENow app offers access to online live concerts, shows, sports and other premium live events that users can actively participate in as well as watch.
  • 1M HomeDance – Created in collaboration with 1MILLION Dance Studio, one of K-Pop’s most popular choreography teams, the app provides a wide selection of tutorials to help users perfect their dance moves. Users can check out their form with Camera Mode while dancing along with 1MILLION’s professional choreographers, or take a break, sit back, and watch their favourite dance clips.
  • LG Fitness – LG is also introducing its very first health platform, LG Fitness, to help users enjoy a healthier lifestyle at home. Users can find the ideal workout plan based on the system’s recommendations or create their own by choosing from a variety of options such as fast-paced HIIT, full-body stretching or guided meditation, among others, keeping track of their activity and progress on the app’s dashboard.
  • Independa – And with the arrival of Independa in the US and Canada, LG TVs can help users care for family members remotely or assist seniors to be more independent. As the first tele-healthcare service supported on LG TVs, Independa features an intuitive interface that makes it easy for users to initiate a video chat with a caregiver or easily access a menu of relevant professional services. Pop-up notifications inform when someone is calling, and personal alerts can be set up for more reminders.
