With years dominating the OLED TV market, LG Electronics (LG) has continuously upped its game with innovative releases annually. LG OLED TV sets have the qualities and features one seeks as the center of their premium home theater system. The diverse offerings are designed to cater to various customer preferences.

LG offers consumers a range of OLED TV options with up to 8k resolutions, a wide range of screen size options and different pricing options. These options complemented by the exceptional picture quality, thrilling contrast, great aesthetics, and industry-leading solutions such as MLA (Micro Lens Array) for higher levels of brightness set LG apart.

Before you buy a television set, brightness, resolution, screen size, refresh rates and energy efficiency are key things to consider. Considered the benchmark for high-end TV sets, OLED TVs are widely sought out when upgrading a home entertainment setup.

So, what is OLED? OLED stands for “Organic LightEmitting Diode.” This technology gives pixel-level lighting and dimming enabling better and more precise contrast ratio between dark and light shades. This allows OLED TVs to deliver perfect blacks since they can turn off their pixels. In addition, they offer reduced energy consumption, higher resolutions and refresh rates compared to other displays.

LG OLED TVs feature the company’s proprietary AI technology called ThinQ. LG’s ThinQ technology expands users’ AI experience allowing seamless compatibility without requiring additional devices. With partners such as Google and Amazon, ThinQ incorporates AI assistants like Google Assistant and Alexa into LG OLED TVs.

Additionally, it allows to interact with devices through voice commands and it can also respond through audio. This is complemented by ThinQ AI’s ability to learn from consumer patterns to improve performance and help enhance user experience.

Let’s take a look at some of the LG OLED TVs released in 2023:
