South Korean electronics giant LG recently announced that it will soon be launching its latest batch of OLED Evo smart TVs, which will come with built-in AI software features. Powered by LG’s custom webOS software platform, the new TVs pack a number of useful features.
First up are the LG SIGNATURE OLED M4 and LG OLED G4 TVs, which are equipped with the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor, that the company says can enhance picture and audio quality, resulting in a 70 percent improvement in graphic performance and a 30 percent faster processing speed versus earlier models.
Additionally, the new OLED TVs come with upgraded AI upscaling, which allows software to discern between which visual elements need some additional sharpening. There’s also a “Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro” feature that splits pictures into blocks and adjusts brightness and contrast based on variations in brightness where light enters the scene, resulting in more realistic images.
There’s also the LG SIGNATURE OLED M4, LG’s wireless OLED TV that comes in a new 65-inch screen size, although there’s a much larger 97-inch model as well. LG has included a wireless Zero Connect Box that reduces the need to use additional cables, as well as wireless video and audio transmission at up to 4K 144Hz.
AI also makes an appearance in terms of sound quality, with the included Sound Pro feature that taps into the built-in speakers’ virtual 11.1.2 surround sound for better audio quality and clarity. For gaming, LG has added HDMI 2.1 support, as well as compatibility with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync for fully-immersive gaming experiences.
