4K Resolution

ULTRA HD is a new standard in picture quality, and it's the future of high-end video display in the home. The resolution is four times that of Full HD 1080p*, with a whopping 8.3 million pixels to display flawless images, even when viewed up close. Enjoy incredibly vivid colors and picture details as never before.

IPS 4K Panel

IPS 4K Panel

LG’S IPS panel puts brilliance on display with a wider 4K viewing angle than Samsung 4K TV*s. One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding ULTRA high-definition performance is the specially designed TV panel. The quality of the panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and our IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house.

Tru-4K Engine

Tru-4K Engine

Enjoy the benefits of 4K resolution today. LG's Tru-4K HD Engine upscales the picture through a multi-step data analysis that enhances the details of broadcasts, movies, sports and videogames to near-4K quality, giving you the superior viewing experience you expect from an ULTRA HDTV.

HEVC Decoder

HEVC Decoder

The recently developed HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) compression format is essential to ULTRA HD/4K, enabling next-generation video playback to meet the demands of UHD TVs. 4K video uses HEVC, and so the built-in HEVC decoder on this LG ULTRA HD television makes it ready to display 4K content.

Premium 4K Resolution Content

Premium 4K Resolution Content

Looking for Ultra HD 4K Content? LG Smart TV's with Netflix now offer 4K resolution streaming video! Other streaming services have also begun to adopt 4K resolution with increased implementation expected in the years ahead. 4K source components—consumer video gear capable of outputting a true 3,840 x 2,160 signal—are now also on the market as well.

UCI 1080

UCI 1080

Specifically applied to LG Ultra HD televisions, our Ultra Clarity Index (UCI) is a rating that represents several key performance features and their ability to deliver the clearest possible picture. Inherently superior to current HD, UHD TVs with a UCI of 1080 offer a huge leap forward for clear, precise images even on demanding fast action such as sports and videogames.

Smart Share

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super TV--best I ever owned. Has exquisite color, sharp, clear, big...love it. I bought it a few months ago. I thought it was a great value compared to the other brands on display. I have owned LG products before and have been happy with them. This TV greatly enhances my viewing pleasure. I like sports and news in particular...great for sports viewing. No regrets with this TV. August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME, LIFE-LIKE PICTURE, VALUE FOR MONEY, We have owned this TV for just couple of months or so. We got a good deal in Best Buy, the product looked Superb with great features, and we ordered it right-away, no second-thoughts... From the day we got this TV at Home, we have grown more fond of this product, day by day... No looking back & Absolutely no regrets, so far... This is the first time we tried LG TV... We are One Happy LG TV Buyers... PROS: Sleek Looks & Great Styling - It enhances our living room, Life like Picture Quality, Easy To Use / Learn Features, Elegant, Excellent Interface, Good Sound Quality, Easy on our Eyes even after long viewing hours, Great Value For Money, Beautiful ... CONS: Remote needs to be more improved/user friendly, one needs to learn how to go back & forth - Just Initial Hiccups, if using LG TV for the first time... Stand needs to be more Strong vis-a-vis size of TV - Its ok, if we decide to wall-mount the TV... The Cons weigh just 5% or less (very negligible) Compared to the Great Value PROS brings in... So, Hands Down, Awesome TV August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice tv for the money. this TV has a great picture. there are two complaints I have with this product. I wish the feet on the tv were closer together and i wish the magic remote was included in the box. July 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The picture is so life like! So Life like that it is like the people on the screen are actually in the room. The smart TV features are plentiful and easy to use. With the extra magic remote I bought, it is so easy to manuver between live TV or go to net flix in a flash, or by voice command. This TV is awsome and a great buy. You need to see the difference between HD and the 4K Ultra High Def! You will never go back to regular HD! July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far We have had this set for 4 months and so far it has been great August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product - Outstanding Picture - No Bluetooth I find that since I got my UB8200 series Ultra 4k LG set I thoroughly enjoy my viewing experiences. The only thing missing is a bluetooth capability but for the price it is an outstanding value. Life if Good with the UB8200 and FOOTBALL is back finally. LG. August 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Picture I'm so glad that we picked this TV out of all the others. It has a perfect picture, I have neighbors stopping and looking in my patio window watching TV. It doesn't matter where you are standing, The picture is the same, Great. I would recommend this to anyone. Well worth the price. July 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING I PURCHASED THIS TV FOR MY MOTHER AND SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT. THE SET UP WAS A BREEZE, THE FEATURE ARE BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS, THE PICTURE IS SO CLEAR YOU CAN COUNT THE FRECKLES ON A PERSONS FACE,THE SOUND IS EXCELLENT, THE DIFFERENT ENTERTAINMENT FEATURES ARE OUTSTANDING. I GIVE THIS TV TWO THUMBS UP. August 10, 2015

Looking for a product that could suit a client's needs. Need it to be as narrow of an outer frame as possible in the 55" size. This unit has the smallest outer dimensions of the units on your site but it doesn't indicate if it is able to be wall mounted.

Thanks.

Answer: 
Yes, the 55UB8200 is wall mountable.

The TV has four threaded inserts on the back for use with an optional wall-mount bracket. The spacing of the mounting holes is 400mm (h) x 400mm (v). The threaded inserts require 6mm machine screws (not supplied). The television weighs 38.5 lbs without the stand.
