TV LG unveils 2019 TVs ahead of CES headlined by an 88-inch 8K OLED TV Jacob Siegal @JacobS

The 88-inch LG Z9 8K OLED TV will debut at the CES 2019.

The new TVs will run LG's second-generation Alpha 9 processor (α9 Gen 2) and will use a new algorithm to analyse source content and recognise ambient conditions in order to enhance picture and sound.

LG put out a press release detailing the big improvements to its TV sets it means to show off at CES this year.

LG added support for the Google Assistant to its 2018 line-up of TVs, while its 2019 soundbars can now work as a dedicated Google Assistant device thanks to in-built far-field microphones.

In addition to Alexa for controlling the TV by voice, the 2019 TVs will come with an Amazon Prime Video button on the remote control. Owners will enjoy the ease of conversational voice recognition and an intuitive Home Dashboard that makes it possible to control a wide variety of smart home devices directly from the TV. Moreover, because of its Advanced Processor, it will also help it to adjust the tone of the picture according to the ambient situations which will adjust Brightness, Contrast and other display factors according to light situations.

This includes support for HDR content.

Jim Jordan confirmed that Sherman had filed his bill, tweeting: 'We knew they couldn't help themselves. But she suggested that Democrats don't plan to budge from their refusal to allocate wall money.

And then there's the other TVs LG has mentioned in the announcement, and they are a little different again.

Another new feature on the TVs is the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports - fitted to all 2019 OLED models and selected NanoCell TVs.

Google Assistant was integrated into LG smart TVs past year, but the company has now made a decision to add Amazon Alexa to give users more options when using the product. The result is smoother and clearer motion at 120 frames per second for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies.

The α9 Gen 2 processor will also be inside the company's 75-inch 8K LCD TV (SM99) available later this year.

A lot of these settings and feature have been around for a while in PC monitors and speakers, so it's nice to see them come to high-end TVs where they can improve on the TV watching experience.

Also worth noting: LG's 2019 premium LCD TVs lineup (SM9X and SM8X series) will roll out under a new name, NanoCell TV.
