January 03, 2024 – LG has officially unveiled its 2024 OLED TV lineup, featuring the LG M4 Wireless TV, along with the latest iterations of the standard OLED product line – G4, C4, and B4. These new models are set to be showcased at CES 2024, taking place from January 9th to 12th.
While LG has not confirmed pricing or release dates, international media outlets anticipate that the new LG TV lineup will likely hit the market around March or April.
Positioned as the flagship, the LG M4 introduces a 65-inch version for the first time (with options ranging from 65 inches to 97 inches) and supports 4K 144Hz wireless video and audio transmission. Equipped with the latest α (Alpha) 11 AI processor, it significantly enhances picture and audio quality. Compared to its predecessor, the graphics performance has seen a 70% improvement, while processing speed has increased by 30%.
The TV will come with a Zero Connect box, which can be placed separately at a certain distance from the television. This box replaces the TV’s built-in input interfaces, enabling the realization of “wireless TV.” The box includes HDMI 2.1, USB, RF interfaces, and supports WiFi and Bluetooth connections.
Additionally, the WOWCAST wireless feature of the α11 AI processor supports lossless transmission of Dolby Atmos signals to compatible LG speakers, eliminating the need for audio connection cables.
In other aspects, this series of models supports AI Sound Pro audio technology, features built-in virtual 11.1.2 surround sound, is VESA ClearMR certified, and is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync, providing HDMI 2.1 interfaces among other features.
The LG G4, also equipped with the α11 AI processor, delivers similar brightness performance to the M4, supports a 144Hz refresh rate, and includes the same WOWCAST wireless audio feature.
Furthermore, the LG G4 incorporates Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology introduced in the previous model and will support a larger 83-inch model (Note: the 83-inch LG G3 did not have MLA).
The LG C4, positioned as a mid-range OLED TV, will feature the α9 AI processor, supporting a 144Hz refresh rate, and promises higher brightness and gaming experience compared to the C3.
Finally, the LG B4 is the entry-level model for the 2024 LG OLED TV lineup, equipped with the α8 AI processor, offering performance comparable to the previous α9 processor (LG C3). Additionally, it introduces four HDMI 2.1 interfaces for the first time and presents a 48-inch version for the first time.
It is noteworthy that LG has also announced the rollout of the latest webOS update to existing LG Smart TV users, applicable to 2022 OLED TVs and 2022 QNED Mini LED 8K TVs. This update will be extended to more LG TVs globally, providing continuous webOS updates for the next five years.
