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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right 65” TV We bought our 65” LG TV less than a month ago while at Video Only to buy a competitor brand whose similarly priced model was out of stock. Our salesman recommended our LG TV as a batter product when compared on picture quality. He couldn’t have been more right. We really believe this is the TV for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features, sound sync problems The picture is great as far as we have been able to make use of the great features. We have had trouble syncing the sound to the video when the cable box is the source. We can adjust the sync via the settings but not close enough. Overall though still happy.
