LG will unveil the world’s largest OLED TV at the IFA tech show this week, the 97-inch G2.
The LG OLED evo Gallery Edition 97G2 will be available globally this autumn, price yet to be announced. Hopefully, it’ll be a little more affordable than the brand’s Rollable OLED model, which is hand-built at £100,000 a piece.
The superscreen completes LG’s 2022 OLED TV line-up, which runs the gamut in screen sizes, from 42-inches upwards.
According to market research, OLED screens will account for 55 percent of the European premium TV market this year, and 66 percent by 2023. The report by Omdia also forecasts that global shipments of TVs over 70-inches will reach approximately 14.9 million units this year, increasing to nearly 17.1 million units next year.
Like its stablemate G-series models, the LG 97G2 utilises the latest OLED.EX panel technology allied to a heatsink for superior brightness, and the latest Alpha 9 Gen5 AI processor. Picture quality should be jaw-dropping.

Like all LG Gallery models, the 97G2 is designed for wall-hanging, although clearly you’ll need a substantial wall to hang it on. A pedestal stand is an optional extra.
Visitors to the LG booth at IFA Berlin will also see the brand’s 88-inch 8k LG Signature 88Z2 OLED and 86-inch QNED 86QNED99.
Both models boast 7,680 x 4,320 resolution displays. The 86QNED99 employs LG’s Quantum Dot NanoCell and Precision Dimming wizardry to deliver sharp, colour rich upscaled images.
Also on show in Berlin is LG’s 136-inch 4K Micro LED screen solution. This novel display is built upon micrometre-sized self-lit pixels and has a modular design.
IFA run September 2-6 2022 at the Messe Berlin exhibition centre.
