LG arty GX OLED TVs and premium 8k megascreens have the wow factor

LG has confirmed its premium TV ranges for 2020, including high-end 4k and 8k models for high-tech connoisseurs.

There are no fewer than 14 new OLED models from the brand hitting the streets over the next few months, including its first 48-inch CX OLED model (priced at £1500), a designer GX series and jaw-dropping 8k models.

We particularly like the look of three new GX Gallery series OLEDs, available in 55-, 65- and 77-inch screens sizes, which combine an ultra thin form factor that enables them to be hung like an artwork (pictured above).

The OLED55GX and OLED65GX will retail for £2,300 and £3,500 respectively. 

When it comes to mega-screens, the 77-inch 4k OLED77CX is priced at £5,000; the 77-inch OLED77GX pegged at £6,000. All LG’s OLEDs support Dolby Vision IQ and Filmmaker Mode, for cinematic accuracy. 

There are no fewer than 14 new LG OLED models hitting the streets over the next few months, both 4k and 8k…

LG’s Signature OLED 8K ZX mega screen

If you want to be ahead of the curve with 8k, then the brand has models in 88-  and 77-inch screen sizes. LG’s 88-inch 8k OLED OLED88ZX, boasts a retail ticket of £40,000. The 77-inch 8k OLED77ZX is almost a snip in comparison, at £25,000.

In addition to OLED, the company has a range of NanoCell LED TVs, which are designed to shine in bright rooms. Our advice is to take a look at the  75- and 86-inch 75NANO91/ 75NANO90 and 86NANO91 Nanocell 4k models, priced at £2,400 and £4,000 respectively. These seem particularly good value.

Is the LG NanoCell 75-inch NANO99 a home cinema bargain?

It’s worth noting that 8k Nanocell models are significantly cheaper than their OLED counterparts. The 75NANO99 8k model is priced at a mere £5,500, while the 8k Nanocell 65NANO95 is £3,000. LG also offers an 8k Nanocell 65NANO99 for £4,500 and a 55-inch 55NANO95 8k Nanocell for £2,000, although the benefits of buying smaller 8k screen sizes are debatable, as the visual benefits are less obvious at a normal viewing distance.
