Today, LG announced the launch of its new lineup of impressive OLED TVs that range in size from 42 to 97 inches. The lineup features mostly 4K units, but there are two 8K versions as well that will become available next month. The G2, C2, and Z2 (8K) series models will feature LG's latest a9 Gen 5 intelligent processor that uses a deep learning algorithm to enhance the overall performance.
The new a9 Gen 5 CPU also features LG's new Nydnamic Tone-mapping Pro Algorithm, which "individually processes over 5,000 areas on the screen, enhancing each to produce a more vivid and detailed image, in both brighter and darker parts of the picture," LG claims. You will also experience better audio performance thanks to the new AI Sound Pro feature that enables the TV's built-in speakers to produce 7.1.2 surround sound.

LG's newest lineup of OLEDs will come with webOS 22, the latest version of the user-friendly Smart TV platform. LG has added some cool things like NFC Magic Tap, which "allows for a simple way to mirror the screen from mobile to TV." Another new feature is Room-to-Room Share, that "allows for cable or satellite content mirroring via Wi-Fi from one TV to another in the home, so there’s no need for an additional set-top-box on the second TV."
The updated webOS 22 also adds several new personalizations options, including customizable user profiles for each member of your family or roommates. This allows each user to create a unique viewing experience that caters to their personal preferences. You get all that and over 350 free ad-supported channels.

We recently got a sneak peek at LG's new G2 and C2 series TVs and we were blown away by how bright, sharp, colorful, and highly detailed the image quality was on these new LG screens. The Dynamic Tone-mapping technology is game-changing, especially when there are different lighting elements happening within a scene. We found the details in each lighting situation and element to be so detailed, I was left speechless (I may have hugged the nearest LG representative with pure joy).
The all-new 97-inch G2 display was something to behold. The new lineup is very thin, with LG saving weight by using carbon fiber and aluminum, while also making them more eco-friendly. It looked like a massive piece of artwork had been placed lovingly in an art gallery. When the images on the screen started to move, it was mesmerizing.
