“We’re continuing to push boundaries with our roster of home entertainment products in 2019 by introducing bigger, better and smarter TVs than our previous range. More and more Australians are falling in love with LG OLED TVs – their perfect blacks and stunning visual experience – and this year with the added AI benefits embedded in these models viewers will truly get the best visual experience that LG has to offer,” said Angus Jones, General Manager of Marketing at LG Electronics Australia.


“We wowed visitors at CES this year with the LG SIGNATURE OLED R and its impressive rollable design. It’s an incredible product that truly redefines the TV viewing experience and further demonstrates our engineering capabilities at LG.”


“While the LG OLED R TV will be available outside Australia soon, we are still assessing interest from Australian retailers,” he added. “In the meantime, we are excited to bring Australian consumers the new range of OLED TVs in a variety of sizes and price points, matched with a game-changer Alpha 9 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor.”


Our most advanced processor to date, the Alpha 9 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor offers enhanced picture and sound experience.

This integration makes LG the only TV brand to talk directly to both leading AI platforms without the need for additional hardware.


Select 2019 AI ThinQ™ OLED and SUPER UHD models will support HDMI 2.1 for viewing 4K content at a high frame rate of 120 frames per second. As well as, (4K HFR), Automatic Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).


2019 LG webOS 4.5 and Magic Remote provide users with even simpler access to content


The 2019 webOS ribbon of applications on LG models is even easier to use. Users can simply hover the LG Magic Remote cursor over an application and thumbnails from when the application was last used will appear, which makes it easier for consumers to pick up on where they left off. For example, with one click of a button the TV user will be able start up their Netflix content again from where they last watched.


In addition, only in Australia, LG has worked with a metadata service to provide LG webOS users with extra detail and the latest information on the content they are viewing.


The suite of LG AI ThinQ™ OLED, SUPER UHD and UHD TVs will begin rolling out to retailers across Australia starting from April 2019.

Notes to Editors:




Magic Remote– LG continues to deliver a seamless and easy to use TV viewing experience

In 2019 the LG Magic Remote will continue to control webOS Smart TV to easily access Stan, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video by simply clicking and scrolling. Voice recognition is activated through the microphone button to control LG AI ThinQ®, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa through a dedicated key.


LG AI ThinQ™ Technology – Creating more intelligent viewing experiences at home with Google Assistant

With NLP, if users speak naturally, the TV can understand intentions and the context of the questions. LG AI ThinQ® can understand a diverse range of natural expressions like: “Volume up”, “Raise up the Volume”, “Make the TV louder”, “Sound is too quiet” and more. LG AI ThinQ® listens to natural language and increases its understanding of new expressions.

LG AI ThinQ® also marks a paradigm shift in terms of using instruction manuals. Users learning how to use their TVs will not have to resort to an instruction manual. Instead, the user can access the built-in user guide using their voice. With LG’s proprietary AI ThinQ® users can immediately detect media, gaming and audio devices. Users can switch picture mode (“Change to Cinema Mode”) or turn the TV off at set times.

To sum up, the TVs deliver an intuitive AI experience that uses natural language commands to control TV functions and settings and seamlessly find and play content. As well, LG AI ThinQ® TVs will eventually learn to connect and control other compatible smart home devices.

Furthermore, LG AI ThinQ® TVs combined with Google Assistant brings new levels of convenience and control to the user. With the integration, the Google Assistant, can help manage daily tasks, access information, control compatible smart home devices including lighting, appliances and much more.

LG AI ThinQ® TVs can perform hundreds of voice commands utilising the company’s own open smart platform and the Google Assistant.

LG OLED TVs – World leaders in the OLED TV market

Through the elimination of a backlight, each pixel in an LG OLED TV has the ability to turn on and off creating a perfect black screen and producing vivid, life-like images comprising of more than one billion colours. This creates contrast on the screen at its finest detail.

In 2019, these models help bring the visual effect to life through 4K Cinema HDR with Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos and the new second-generation Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor, for a truly premium home entertainment experience.

LG 4K Cinema HDR with Dolby Vision™ – Integration of technologies that have been making an impact on Hollywood content in recent years

2019 LG OLED and SUPER UHD TVs continue to feature 4K Cinema HDR with Dolby Vision™, which promises a premium cinematic experience at home with all models supporting Dolby Vision™ and HDR10.

Dolby Vision™ is a premium, proprietary version of HDR. Dolby works directly with film makers at major Hollywood studios to create superior HDR video masters of blockbuster movies. All HDR masters contain something called metadata, information encoded into the signal that dictates the colour and brightness. Dolby Vision™ utilises dynamic metadata, which sets individual colour and brightness levels frame by frame. This results in a more accurate representation of how the image should look. 

Dolby Vision™ HDR effectively re-masters your movie, scene by scene, adjusting it to achieve the cinematic vision of the director.

In addition, LG OLED and SUPER UHD TVs in 2019 support Dolby Atmos sound. Dolby Atmos technology creates a powerfully moving entertainment experience by isolating the relative location of each sound to generate rich and multi-dimensional audio.

Alpha 9 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor and HDMI 2.1 – A smart vision and sound experience catered to the viewer

LG’s newest Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor in 2019 LG TVs provides true-to-life images with incredibly rich colours, sharpness, and depth for more realism. A core innovation of the processor is the four-step process of noise reduction. The algorithm allows for greater clarity of images affected by distracting artefacts for more effective rendering of smooth gradations.

The AI Brightness Feature can adjust the HDR image tone mapping and brightness to account for the viewing environment as measured by the TV’s ambient light sensor.


HDR material is finely adjusted so that dark scenes have enhanced detail in when viewed in a bright room.


The Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor also improves colour performance with advanced Look Up Table (LUT) mapping capabilities that bring colours closer to the original content.

The Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor also makes its processing power apparent with upgraded sound capabilities; optimisation based on what is being watched to make voices clearer in movies, dramas and news broadcasts for example. An intelligent algorithm can boost the sound quality of stereo, using it to create virtual 5.1 surround sound. The TVs are able to intelligently optimise the sound settings for their positioning and also feature Dolby Atmos, which delivers realistic, immersive soundscapes.


Through the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports, all 2019 OLED TVs and selected SUPER UHD TVs with LG AI ThinQ® will support High Frame Rate (HFR). The result is smoother and clearer motion at 120 frames per second for improved rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. This allows support for enhanced audio return channel (eARC) enabling home theatre enthusiasts to seamlessly utilise HDMI connectivity and enjoy quality audio formats with detail and depth.


An excellent option for gamers, the new 2019 OLED TVs are compatible with Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) as well as Automatic Low Latency mode (ALLM) which helps deliver a clean image, with minimal tearing.


LG SUPER UHD TVs– Wide viewing angles and improvement in deeper blacks

In combination with Nano Cell Technology with IPS and Full Array Dimming backlighting on selected models, LG AI-enabled SUPER UHD TVs offer advanced LED/ LCD picture quality with deeper blacks, enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and accurate colours with wide viewing angles.

Nano Cell Technology – Vivid and eye-catching colour even at wide viewing angles

Nano Cell technology with IPS was introduced in the LG SUPER UHD TVs in 2017. The technology employs nano meter-sized particles that absorb unwanted light wavelengths and enhance the purity of the red and green colours displayed on the screen to create purer and cleaner colours. The result is an enhanced picture with accurate colour reproduction.

The use of Nano Cell Technology in the LG IPS panel enables this broad spectrum of colour to be seen at wide viewing angles (even as far as 60-degress).

Full Array Dimming– Deeper blacks created in LED/LCD panels

Full Array Dimming in selected 2019 LG SUPER UHD TV models actively dims the backlight on your TV, dramatically improving black levels for increased contrast and a more immersive experience. The benefit of Full Array Dimming is that bright parts of an HDR image can be brighter while dark parts are darker, which results in better contrast and clarity.

Alpha7 Gen 2 – Intelligent processor that enhances the visual experience

Nano Cell Technology results in incredibly vibrant colours and dramatically improved blacks. All of this is super-charged by the new Quad-core Alpha 7 Gen2 Intelligent Processor, in selected LG SUPER UHD models.

LG UHD TVs – 4K Smart TV viewing experience

The LG UM 76/3 UHD/4K AI ThinQ™ TV range is packaged with webOS4.5 Smart TV for viewers to access and stream 4K shows on Netflix, Stan or Amazon Prime Video in 4K Ultra High Definition for a seamless and breathtaking viewing experience*. With the integration of DTS Virtual: X users will experience surround sound-like audio.

The model boasts eight sizes ranges from 43 to 86-inches.
