Impeccable 4K OLED Screen
Fusing OLED tech with 4K resolution, this set’s contrast, colour and clarity make viewing simply one-of-a-kind. OLED pixels are self-lighting, meaning that they can switch on-and-off individually to conjure inky blacks and super-bright whites. Compared to regular LED screens, LG's panel adds an extra white sub-pixel, delivering ultra-fine gradation and a colour palette that’s virtually true-to-life. This 4K OLED set is a majesty to behold.
Stunning Cinema HDR Visuals by Technicolour
LG are one of the forerunners of contrast and colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR to deepen your view and show shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life. This set supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision so whatever entertainment you're enjoying, you'll always get the full, glorious HDR treatment with pin-point accuracy. With HDR tuned by Hollywood experts Technicolour, the result is a beautifully cinematic image, at home.

Perfect Colour on Perfect Black: thanks to the OLED screen's self emitting pixels, colour representation is astonishingly lifelike and wide-ranging, on a background of perfect blacks and dark shades.
Alpha 7 Processor: powering the display is LG's a7 Intelligent Processor for a premium LED viewing experience of brightness and clarity.
Dolby Atmos Sound: fully immersive Dolby Atmos places sound within three dimensions for a stunningly enveloping soundscape, with you at the centre. Coupled with such stunning visuals, it's the full cinema experience.
Perfect Clarity: with the super-fast response speeds of OLED pixels, movement is fluid and free from blur. Perfect for fast-moving action, taking you further into high-octane action movies or the sporting spectacle.
