LG will be bringing a 48-inch mid-size TV to the US market sometime after June (release date not specified), and which is billed as no-compromise second TV or a display primed for serious gaming. The 4K Ultra HD OLED 48CX complements a lineup of 55-, 65-, 77- and 88-inch OLED models so far and promises to deliver deep blacks with a pixel-density comparable to a 96-inch 8K TV.
The monitor includes a number of gaming features with NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible tech for better graphics and immersion, with the TV’s refresh rate adapted to the frame rate of connected hardware. The TV includes low input lag and fast response time for reduced flicker and stutter.
HDR10 and Dolby Vision are included at up to 120 frames per second for 4K UHD content while taking advantage of HDMI advanced specs such as auto low latency mode (ALLM), enhanced audio return channel (eARC) and variable refresh rate (VRR). HDMI VRR makes the TV compatible with a variety of graphics cards and consoles, and Gaming Interest Group’s (HGiG) HDR gaming profile is featured on all LG OLED TVs this year. As well as Dolby Atmos support, LG’s deep learning-based AI Acoustic Tuning taps into the local environment and adjusts audio for greater accuracy.
“LG is again pushing the innovation envelope by bringing the ultimate picture to a TV screen size that is much more approachable,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “Now even more consumers will be able to experience the superior performance of LG OLED TVs, considered to be the most advanced gaming TV on the market today.”
Sales of the anticipated LG OLED 48CX will kick off in key European and Asian markets in June, with the US, Canada and other countries to follow.
