LG just lifted the lid on 2023’s OLED A3, B3, C3, G3 and Z3. Let’s take a look at what’s new and changed this year.
A few hours before the official announcement, LG Electronics Germany uploaded a blog post with LG’s new OLED TVs. These are A3, B3, C3, G3 and Z3.
What’s new for the 2023 generation?
These are among the best-selling TVs, if not the most popular. It should be noted that LG Electronics LG, Philips, Panasonic, etc. is in the same group as LG Display, the designer and manufacturer of OLED panels used by The difference is that LG is no longer the only company producing OLED panels for TVs, as we will soon get to know the second generation QD-OLED from Samsung Display.
Let’s go back to this 2023 generation. We can summarize the new features quickly enough: LG OLED G3 now Brightness Booster Max to achieve significantly higher brightness. As for the entire 2023 range, the TVs benefit from an overhaul of webOS as well as HDMI 2.1 QMS.
Shine, shine and shine!
The Z3, G3 and C3 series TVs continue to lead the LG OLED 2023 series. These three series feature LG OLED evo technology with an all-new processor. AI Alpha 9 Gen6 4K. LG Electronics refers to ” higher brightness and color accuracy as well as incredible clarity and detail”.
As always, the biggest change is for the LG OLED evo G3 series with the technology Brightness Booster Maxwhich includes a completely new light control architecture, as well as light enhancement algorithms to increase brightness. up to 70%. These figures should be checked in tests.
Recall that on the LG OLED G2 we measured a peak brightness of 946 cd/m² for a 10% window (the LG 65G1 measured 785 cd/m²). That’s the little subtlety here 70% increase compared to LG OLED A3 and B3 (entry level).
It will also be necessary to distinguish between 55, 65 and 77-inch G3s. LG promises differences in 83 and 97 inches diagonal, 30-40% brighter. An LG spokesperson said the maximum brightness of the G3 it will be from your command 1800 nits and “Maybe a little brighter with the Vivid setting “.
The LG Z3 (8K resolution model) should peak at 1,350 nits (Vivid), while the C3 and B3 remain unchanged from last year’s C2 and B2 when it comes to brightness.
It should be noted that LG Electronics has made great efforts in the G3, making an aesthetic change for more style and elegance in the living room: Thanks to the One Wall design, there will be no visible gap after mounting on the wall. The M3 model (available in 77, 83 and 97 inches) should also see the light of day during the Las Vegas show. It should include the features of the G3, but with a remote box to move all of the TV’s connectors, for example, to a specific piece of furniture.
There’s still no DTS support, but this year’s LG OLEDs can easily be connected to LG soundbars that offer sound.to coverExceptional multichannel with IMAX Enhanced powered by DTS:X.
there is There are no new sizes for OLED ranges this year, the B3 will be available in 55-77 inches, the C3 in 42-83 inches, the G3 in 55-97 inches, and the Z3 in 77 and 88 inches. Finally, there’s the entry-level A3 (up to 60 Hz) in 48 and 77 inches.
HDMI 2.1 QMS and webOS 23
Other notable new features are HDMI 2.1 QMS and webOS 23. This HDMI 2.1 QMS is brand new: also compatible with Apple TV (2022). Basically, QMS VRR prevents black screens that occur when switching between content played at different frame rates. This happens when you go from 24 frames per second (24Hz) content like movies to 50 frames per second (50Hz) or even 60 frames per second (60Hz) broadcast TV content.
Finally, webOS 23 is also mentioned by LG Electronics. Recall that it is the home OS that powers LG TVs. As always, LG will not update older generations of LG TVs. webOS 23 is therefore reserved for the 2023 generation.
This year, LG promises a simpler and faster interface. It is now split into two, but still appears to combine recommendation modules and advertising.
The home screen features a large carousel of partner-sponsored content, user-customizable “quick cards” and a number of built-in apps. Quick Cards can open new sections such as “Game”, “Music”, “Sports” and “Home Office”.
Scrolling down on the second screen, you’ll find a Stream Now section with highlighted content from partners and tabs for Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, and other streaming services with LG partners.
