At the annual CES held in Las Vegas, USA, LG presented a new line of TVs for 2022. As expected, we will see an expansion of the range of OLED TV sizes. Both the smallest 42 “model and the largest 97” screen.
Smaller, bigger, brighter, thinner
LG will continue to mark last year’s ranks. We will see the series A2, B2, C2. G2 and Z2. Except for the Z Series, which was already in 8K last year, all TVs will offer 4K resolution. The diagonals continue to grow, while last year the largest model had 83 “, this year it will be just 97”.
Another shift is moving brighter EVO panels to the C2 series, while premium the G2 series is supposed to get even brighter OLED panels with a maximum brightness of 1000 rivets. In the C2 model series, however, EVO panels will not get all the diagonals, the smaller 42 “and 48” will have a classic OLED panel.

The higher C2, G2 and Z2 series will receive improved Alpha 9 Gen 5 image processors, improved “Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro”, there is no lack of “AI” functions for image and sound. The lower A2 and B2 series will have a less powerful Alpha 7 Gen 5 video processor. In addition to the basic A2 series, all HDMI 2.1 series with 48Gbps throughput, VRR and 4K120P functions, support for Google Stadia and GeForce Now gaming services has been announced.
A2 series will be in sizes 48 “, 55”, 65 “and 77”. It will be a 50Hz / 60Hz OLED TV with three HDMI 2.0bs ALLM and eARC inputs. As we mentioned, it will get a weaker Alpha 7 Gen 5 processor. The system will of course be WebOS.
Series B2 will be in sizes 55 “, 65” and 77 “, will be equipped with standard OLED panels with a frequency of 100Hz / 120Hz and will already have four HDMI 2.1 inputs with HFR modes 4K120 HDR10 and 4K120 Dolby Vision and VRR (20 Hz to 120 Hz). the higher model will again have a weaker Alpha 7 Gen 5 processor.

C2 series will be in sizes 42 “, 48”, 55 “, 65”, 77 “and 83”. From 55 “onwards, the EVO OLED panels will have 100Hz / 120Hz, the 42” and 48 “diagonals have a standard OLED panel. Again, it will offer four HDMI 2.1 inputs with HFR mode 4K120 HDR10 and 4K120 Dolby Vision and VRR (20 Hz to 120 Hz) The processor will be more powerful Alpha 9 Gen 5. The sound section with LG AI Sound Pro is supposed to offer virtual surround sound 7.1.2.
The G2 design range expands by 97 “
G2 series will offer sizes 55 “, 65”, 77 “, 83” and 97 “. It should be thinner (only 6mm) and will get EVO panels with passive cooling (LG refers to it as OLED Evo G panel with Brigthness Booster), so the brightness will be again about These design TVs will also receive four HDMI 2.1 inputs with HFR modes 4K120 HDR10 and 4K120 Dolby Vision and VRR (20 Hz to 120 Hz) The processor will be more powerful Alpha 9 Gen 5. The sound section with LG AI Sound Pro is also to offer virtual surround sound 7.1.2.
Z2 series with 8K resolution should be at most, screen sizes will be 77 “and 88”. The OLED panel will be the same as last year, an improvement is the image processor (Alpha 9 Gen 5), HDMI 2.1 is a matter of course.
Of course, the prices are not known yet, they can be expected traditionally in March to April, as for the smallest 42 “OLED, so it can not be expected that it will be a dramatically cheaper model than the 48” version, due to membership in the C2 series and clear targeting. on the player.
