Why LG OLED?

Only OLED TVs use over 8.3 million pixels that emit their own light and turn completely off, creating a stunning picture that allows you to see virtually every detail.

  • Sharp Picture

    Unlike LCD or conventional LED technology, OLED uses millions of self-lit pixels to give you consistent detail, even when the cinematography gets dark.

  • Swift Response

    Individual self-lit pixels paired with the latest gaming features and tech give you an edge with less lag, high refresh rates, and incredibly smooth and responsive gameplay.

  • Smooth Motion

    OLED Motion is technology you see, but don't notice. It's motion handling for fast movements in sports and action sequences. Kickoff returns look just as smooth at home as from 50-yard line seats, with less stuttering to slow down the big car chase.

  • Slim Design

    LG OLED technology unlocks a new world of TV design with a minimalist bezel and impossibly thin profile, putting the spotlight on your content while complementing your home's interior.

See how perfect LG OLED TVs can be

Bring home the world’s #1 selling OLED TV. Only OLED pixels emit their own light, allowing for perfect black, intense color and stunning picture. Other TVs pale in comparison. There's LG OLED, then there's everything else.
SELF-LIT LG OLED

See how OLED redefines picture quality

Once you’ve seen LG OLED TV with your own eyes, you'll understand. It’s stunning picture that redefines quality. Millions of OLED pixels emit their own light independently and can be completely turned off. This unveils perfect black, over a billion rich colors and infinite contrast. From the gridiron to the iron throne, no detail goes unseen.
*Calculation based on multiplying 8K resolution (7680 x 4320) and four sub-pixels.
α9 Gen3 AI Processor 4K

See more of your content in 4K

Just because it wasn't filmed in 4K doesn't mean you can't see it that way. Our most advanced 4K processor uses AI and deep learning to authentically upscale lower resolution content, translating the source to 4K's 8.3+ million pixels. The technology is so good, you might mistake non-4K for true 4K*.
*Image quality of upscaled content will vary based on the source resolution.

What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best contrast and gaming features Have this paired up to my PS5 and the combination is simply amazing. Games like ghost of tsushima, spiderman miles morales simply look stunning. WebOS works flawlessly for Netflix, Amazon etc. Although it still lacks the app availability similar to fire tv, roku etc. Only negative is the stuttering when you play low frame rate videos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding picture! I bought this product after careful comparison to its competition. To my estimation it was the superior product. The picture quality was my main focus. After using this television, I have come to appreciate additional features that are included with a smart tv, some of which I am still learning because I am not a computer guru.

Which bracket do you recommend to purchase for this TV?

Asked by: Robrobot
The recommended wall mount bracket in the owner's manual for the LG CX 55 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (54.6'' Diag), Model # OLED55CXAUA is the LG EZ Slim Wall Mount for 2019 LG OLED, NanoCell, and UHD TVs, Model # OLW480B. Even though it is advertised as being for 2019 LG OLEDs, it supports the VESA Wall Mount Interface Pattern of 300 x 200mm that is supported on the TV. The mount is a Full-Motion Wall Mount but any VESA compliant Fixed, Tilting or Full-Motion wall mount, regardless of brand or manufacturer that supports the VESA wall mount interface pattern on the TV can be used to mount the TV...^IFV

What is the difference between the OLED65CXAUA and the OLED65CXPUA and why are they both sold in the USA?

Asked by: Anonymous
There aren't any differences between the LG CX 65 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (64.5'' Diag), Model # OLED65CXAUA and Model # OLED65CXPUA other than that they are sold through different retailers. We are not clear on your inquiry about why they are both sold in the USA.

What is the power consumption in watts while the unit is on?  Are the other 77” OLED UHDTV models the same in power consumption? What is the power consumption in watts of the 8K 88” OLED model? Why not showing that number on the specs?

Asked by: RodolfoLM
The power consumption for any TV will vary depending on how many hours a day it is used and the only information you will find for power consumption for TVs is information that is printed on the Energy Guide that is attached to the TV. The Energy Guide sticker for the LG CX 77 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (76.7'' Diag), Model # OLED77CXAUA lists its Estimated yearly electricity as 313 kWh based on 5 hours use per day as tested by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure. You will find a link for this or the 8K 88" OLED model or for any of our TVs on the product information page for each TV...^IFV

Does the sound come from the Screen? what do they mean front firing?

Asked by: DCCruz
The built-in speakers for the LG CX 55 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (54.6'' Diag), Model # OLED55CXPUA are located on the underside of the panel. They are bottom-firing speakers, meaning that the sound is fired downwards and the surface that you have the TV installed on will bounce the sound back up and outwards towards your sitting position. Some people refer to that as "Front-Firing"...^IFV
