2020 LG Nanocell Smart Tvs models feature 8K Real, Amd FrreSync for games and FilmMaker Mode for movies

This Thursday (18), the LG announced its new line of TVs Nanocell. They will come on the market available in sizes from 49 to 86 inches. These new devices arrive to replace the TVs launched last year, and bring several innovations compared to previous models, mainly being the first TV with the certification of 8K Real and the largest amount of HDMI 2.1 inputs on the market. According to Igor Krauniski, General Manager of television products at LG Electronics from Brazil, the line nanocell 2020 arrives to present products with international characteristics to the Brazilian market.

Screen

the line of Smart TVs LG NanoCell 8K also has the so-called “8K Real“, which is the seal given by the CTA (Consumer Technology Association) attesting to the quality of its 8K technology. Certification is given to those who manage to meet the requirements stipulated by the CTA not only resolution, but as in other aspects like HDR, bit depth and upscaling (resolution increase) of the image.

  

The screen of LG Smart TVs NanoCell 2020 they rely on the technology that gives their name to the line, which uses nanocrystals to absorb light of different colors, an evolution of quantum dot technology. Televisions that use this technology apply these crystals from a film, as explained here on the website, while NanoCell applies them directly to the screen, allowing for much more vivid colors.

In addition, the nanoparticles applied to LG televisions are only 1 nanometer in size, which allows a much more detailed and wide light collection, allowing the screen to display more than 1 billion colors, a very significant increase compared to 16.7 million colors that conventional devices display. This difference is presented precisely by the size of the nanoparticles present in other televisions, which range from 3 to 7 nanometers, preventing many details from being displayed when compared to the line of LG Nanocell Smart TVs.

Artificial intelligence

At Smart Tvs LG NanoCell 2020 they are divided into two sublines: the 4K and the 8K. The 4K line features the 3rd generation alpha-7 processor and the 8K line features the 3rd generation AI alpha-9 processor. The alpha-9 processor is one of the first on the market to make upscaling from 2K and 4K content to 8K by segment division, where the image loses less in the transition than the upscaling by total image that is common in the market.

Both processors rely on the use of Deep Learning in their artificial intelligence that allows the TV to automatically adjust settings such as brightness, detail, sharpness and clarity when observing the environment where the device is located. And just like LG’s line of OLED TVs, the line of Smart TVs LG NanoCell has several connectivity features, and according to LG is one of the smart TVs on the market with the strongest support for integration with personal assistants.

Direct from the factory, the new devices come with the platform ThinQ Ai, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa shipped. the platform ThinQ Ai is LG’s own artificial intelligence, whose main function is the general integration of various devices thanks to the Internet of Things and makes use of machine learning (machine learning, in free translation) to create profiles and interactions with your users. At LG Nanocell Smart TVs can serve as controllers for various items that are connected to the Internet and have platform support ThinQ AI, such as air conditioners and stoves.

THE ThinQ Ai now it can be activated without relying on the Magic Remote, just needing you to say “Hi LG” and complement it with some command. In addition, the platform is available for Android and iOS/iPhone, which allows you to have smart diagnostics of connected devices, monitor the progress of actions performed by certain devices and check what is part of your current smart interface.

audio

Nanocell audio

At smart TVs LG NanoCell have support for Dolby Atmos, already common for some years on LG televisions. Technology makes use of sound surrond to create a more immersive experience in series and movies. This same technology is used in many movie theaters across the country.

O Dolby Atmos it is currently the most used audio standard in streaming services, which will guarantee a very immersive experience for the most varied titles. It makes use of extra-height channels to provide a more immersive experience in the environment, as explained in this text. To better take advantage of this Dolby technology, the LG Nanocell Smart TVs have the ability to connect up to two Bluetooth boxes to produce an even more immersive audio experience with the Bluetooth Surround Ready.

The new models also feature 2.2 power audio channels (in RMS) of 40W and with the function AI Acoustic Tuning(Acoustic Tuning of Artificial Intelligence, translated), which identifies where the device is located and adapts the audio to look as good as possible there.

Movie Resources

With the NanoCell technology and its 1nm nanoparticles, the image of the films will have a pure RGB, filtering impurities and leaving the image with a spectacular quality. Add to that the Dolby Vision IQ, which makes changes to the image depending on the environment where the TV is located, and the experience of watching movies will be extremely more beautiful.

The devices also have two more functions: Full Array Local Dimming, which is the answer of quantum dot TVs to the “perfect black” of OLED TVs, which makes a full array of LEDs on the back of the TV to dynamically simulate the same quality as OLED screens; it’s the Filmmaker Mode (Filmmaker Mode, in free translation), available on some Streaming services. O FilmMaker Mode was developed by UHD Alliance, which has as members some filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Ryan Coogler, James Cameron, JJ Abrams and Christopher Nolan, and aims to preserve the original aspect ratio, the cadence of images per second, the colors, the contrast, the sharpness and the noise reduction to present the experience as close as possible to what the filmmakers intended in the original cinema release, becoming one of the main features of the line of LG Nanocell Smart TVs.

Games have several options

Nanocell freesync

With its two HDMI 2.1 inputs (the largest number of inputs of its kind on the market), LG’s NanoCell TVs have several features to be the most prepared QLED device option on the market for the next generation of video games. The line’s HDR supports the Dolby Vision and to HDR 10, allowing a huge range of compatibility with various games available on the market and the best possible image. Televisions also have the VRR (Variable Update Rate), ALLM (Automatic Low Latency Mode) and eARC (enhanced audio return channel), allowing you to play back intense, fast scenes with much more fidelity.

The presence of the AMD FreeSync it reduces the occurrence of “screen tearing”, in free translation, an important resource for those who play titles where there is a great need for precision and speed in the control and image interaction, which is also helped by the bass input lag (delay in receiving commands) from the TV. Still in HDR, the standard HGiG identifies the best possible options for the image transmitted to the screen in HDR and allows games to be shown as the creators originally intended.

With 1nm nanoparticles, the LG promises an experience in Smart TVs LG NanoCell very close to you being in the stands. Thanks to the line-styling technology, the user’s viewing angle does not affect the image quality, allowing you more freedom of where to stand to watch your favorite sport.

Like Sports Alert the devices will tell you everything about the upcoming games and information about your team, providing a much greater interactivity and connection with the experience of following any competition. Currently, the function has football leagues such as the Bundesliga, Ligue1 and Serie A do Brasileirão, the NFL in the case of American football and the NBA in basketball.

Still in the sports focus, the function Motion Pro eliminate the famous motion blur of the most intense images, making all the details easily observed. As an example, imagine that when someone kicks the ball in a game, the force with which it is thrown causes it to distort in transmissions, making viewing difficult. O Motion Pro lessens this effect on the image, restoring the ball’s visibility to the spectator.

Price and availability

NanoCell televisions are available now, ranging in price from R$2,999 (for the 46′ model) to R$26,000 for the 86′ model. In the links below you will find the models for purchase:
