4K Resolution

Enjoy incredibly vivid colors and picture details as never before.

Disclaimer: *4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.


IPS Panel

One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding 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, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens.


Tru-4K Engine

LG's Tru-4K Engine is our best resolution enhancer yet, that delivers a better picture quality on LG's ULTRA HD 4K TVs.

HEVC Decoder

The recently developed HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) compression format is essential to ULTRA HD/4K content playback. Some next generation content will use this HEVC format and this TV has it built-in HEVC decoder to display the 4K content*.

Sounds really nice

Submitted by DurangoCOguy - 12/31/2017

Bought it a month ago and sounds really nice and has decent bass the bass speaker plug is made of plastic so be real carefully with it as it does not hold the wires very well but simply push wires back in and it self attaches so I found out but problem could of been delivery person in a hurry kinda short speaker wires but easy to extend sounds great listening to Jazz and the 80s rock collections I have it connected to my LG 4k tv via Bluetooth and has no audio delay but its not a surround sound so keep that in mind.
