As is an annual tradition for the company, LG uses CES as a venue to share the first details about its 2022 TV series. Like last year, the company cites improved brightness as one of the main reasons to buy its 2022 sets. That’s because LG’s more affordable C2 range this year will also include the “evo” panel technology that the company debuted in 2021. In addition, LG claims that its new Alpha 9 Gen 5 AI processors will help boost brightness further through a smarter algorithm and better heat dissipation. Those chips will also improve upscaling performance, according to LG, and provide virtual 7.1.2 surround sound up-mixing.
The new OLEDs come with the latest version of LG’s webOS operating system. The updated software adds support for individual profiles, allowing you to customize the menu for quick access to your favorite streaming services. By creating a profile, you will also receive personalized content recommendations and notifications related to your favorite sports teams.
Another new webOS feature allows you to mirror what you’re watching to a second LG TV. That way, the company says, you’ll be watching cable and satellite content on two televisions without an extra set-top box. It’s hard to say how useful that feature will be, because if you have more than one TV in your house, chances are it’s because your family can’t agree on it in the first place.
Out of the box, LG’s 2022 TV series supports the smart home industry’s new Matter standard, allowing you to control device lighting and thermostats from the TVs. LG also promises a better gaming experience thanks to the updated Game Optimizer. The company is adding extra features and preset toggles to the menu to make it easier to access these when you need them. As before, all G2 and C2 sets support G-Sync, FreeSync and variable refresh rates. HDMI 2.1 is also standard across the lineup.
LG has not yet shared the prices, but what we are doing is that the G2 series will consist of 55-, 65-75-inch models. The company will also offer two new 83- and 97-inch sets. The more affordable C2 series will consist of a total of six models, including a new 42-inch size that LG says is great for console and PC gaming. The rest of the C2 range consists of 48-, 55-, 65-, 77- and 83-inch sets. LG also plans to expand its QNED TV series before 2022. Those sets will feature the company’s Quantum Dot NanoCell technology and provide 100 percent color volume.
