Get Smart

Enjoy a more lifelike picture with superior depth, sharpness, and remarkably accurate color. Originally developed for LG OLED TVs—the Best TV Ever—and now available on LG SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ®, the α7 Intelligent Processor enhances 4K HDR content for a truly cinematic experience.

More Color. More Realistic

Nano Cell™ Display has the ability to display a wider spectrum of spectacular colors than conventional TVs, resulting in bluer skies, greener grass and a more lifelike picture with precise, subtle gradation of shades.

Nanoparticles absorb surplus light wavelength and cut down on color bleed from RGB colors displayed on the screen. The result is that it presents pure and vivid colors.

All the Colors of Life

Bluer skies, greener grass, and the faint blush of a cheek: Nano Cell™ Display reveals more than a billion colors*, 64 times more detailed than conventional TV. This ability to display more shades results in superior color fidelity and more lifelike images.

*Billion Rich Colors is achieved through 10 bit dithering. Images Simulated.

Premium Content Choices

4K Cinema HDR on LG SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ® features comprehensive support of major high dynamic range formats including Dolby Vision™ from the cinema, as well as HDR10 and HLG, both with LG’s advanced tone-mapping technology that provides scene-by-scene optimization.

Trust the Color Experts

The same renowned Technicolor® technology that helps perfect premium Hollywood movies and TV shows can now be found in LG AI OLED TV with ThinQ®. The Technicolor Expert Mode optimizes the color performance, which allows for content to be displayed as intended by cinematographers.

A source of inspiration to Hollywood filmmakers

“It really will change my attitude as a filmmaker about what the final image will be for the viewers at home.” Listen to the director of Deadpool, Tim Miller and his opinions about LG OLED TV.

Enhanced HDR10 and HLG

Generic HDR 10 and HLG are rendered with LG's proprietary algorithm. All types of content are displayed with striking brightness from applying dynamic tone mapping on a frame by frame basis.

*Advanced HDR by Technicolor support via USB only. Dolby Vision is a trademark of Dolby Laboratories.

Cinematic Sound at Home with Dolby Atmos®

A leap forward from surround sound, Dolby Atmos transports you with moving audio : crickets chirping all around, a monster roaring from behind, or a plane soaring overhead. Dolby Atmos content creates a more detailed sound experience that appears to come from everywhere for a wonderfully realistic, immersive experience.

*Dolby, Dolby Atmos and the double-D symbol are registered trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

Metal Frame of Mind

The slim, elegant frame of LG SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ® has a distinguished brushed texture. Such thoughtfully considered details allow this television to both blend with and enhance any space.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does it all. Great TV! Picture is amazing and it's really easy to use... Once you get used to the fact that it does so much. I was pretty overwhelmed since it is my first smart TV but all in all I would recommend this TV to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Truly spectacular This tv is a hoss. It is heavy so you will need two people to get it going. Hooking it up to sound system and connnecting devices was super easy. Picture is crystal clear. Even shows on the oldies channel look great. Connects via WiFi or Ethernet and that opens a whole world of features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing TV. Power packed with all the latest technologies like HLG,HDR 10,Dolby Vision , Atmos etc. The interface feels like I am on a computer.Once you get hold of the Magic remote the Web OS feels smooth but not so blazing fast.It almost plays every file format on my External HDD. I still need to tinker on the Atmos capabilities. It does take Dolby Vision + Dolby Atmos by default if the Movie/TVSeries is available in that format.(Eg-Netflix - Bright,Altered Carbon Etc). But when I hear the sound on the TV,it doesn't sound like true atmos or no over head feeling. I am planning to buy an Atmos soundbar.Let's see how it performs. The visuals look stunning on this bigboy. Crisp refresh rates. But,when I connected my xbox one X(Fifa 18), I did feel a little lag.After a firmware update on my LG TV, I did see that the picture quality got improved a little. The bezel is solid. Stand looked sturdy and holding well.The weight is decent. ThinQ AI : Not a big fan. Needs lot of improvement. Con's - The customer already paid a premium amount to enjoy the TV without any fuss. ThinQ AI does not make your life easy,instead when you try the Voice command it shows all kinds of paid services. I try to search a youtube video by voice search and it throws all kinda BS. Pro's - Almost everything(Will update after exploring Atmos)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The LG 3D Smart TV is a great product that I discovered while shopping for a television when we had moved to a new house. The final decision was between a Samsung and LG television. This product provides entertainment for the whole family; it comes with many channels and connects to wifi. This television is great because it provides a clear picture, mouse remote, and great sound. The LG Smart TV always has a visible screen that is never blurry. For example, when we turn the tv on, it does not take a while for the picture to clear up and it's brightness adjusts to the environment. It's remote moves as a mouse does on a computer and it works well from afar. For example, you can draw the number of the channel you wish to flip to and it will not disappoint. This product's audio is amazing because the sound projects throughout the room. For example, when we turn up the volume, it is not muffled or disturbed. Although it is a great source of entertainment, it has its disadvantages. The remote requires a constant battery change. For example, it cannot go two months without needing new batteries. At times, it is slow and requires some patience. The wifi does not always connect automatically, so the user will need to wait until they have connected to use the Internet on the TV. LG is a great company and this product is amazing because it puts all functions of a TV, laptop, and phone into one. I have recommended it to the whole family, and some have already bought theirs. I would have to give it an A grade and a thumbs up because it is useful and entertaining. Although it makes a couch potato out of certain people, l believe this product saves time and provides entertainment for the whole family, as long as the wifi is working.
