Best LG TVs to buy in 2021

What is the best LG TV of 2021? With LG Electronics putting out some of the very best OLED TVs every year, along with a renewed push into 8K technologies, there's never been a more tempting time to buy LG – which is what this guide is all about.

If you're not sure which of LG's latest sets to go for, we have everything you need. We've sat down and tested the very best LG TVs from last year and some of the new ones that'll be hitting the market in 2021, and are able to compare them to find out which is the best choice for you.

There are some high-profile LG TVs you won't see on this list yet, like the rollable LG Signature Series R, though it's now on sale in the UK. The LG C1 OLED and LG G1 OLED have been tried and tested, though, and you'll be able to see how these 2021 LG TVs fare in the guide below – though those of you after the best LG TV on a budget may want to wait for our review of the LG A1 OLED instead.

If you're buying now, here are the best LG TVs to consider. Be sure to check out our LG TV 2021 guide for the full rundown on everything that's available this year – or our guide to the best 48-inch OLED TVs, which you can expect to see in greater numbers in the coming year.

UPDATE:LG’s gaming TVs have had an upgrade. The LG C1 and LG G1OLED TVs now support Dolby Vision HDR at 4K/120Hz, after the latest firmware update for these 2021 OLED screens, and it spells good news for gamers.

Firmware version 03.15.27 is now "rolling out," we're told, making the two flagship 2021 LG OLEDs the first TVs in the world to support Dolby Vision HDR at such a high specification.

Top picks


No surprises there


Screen size: 48-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel type: OLED

Smart TV: webOS

HDR: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision

Reasons to buy

+Incredible contrast and color+New 83-inch size

Reasons to avoid

-Heavy bass-Little improvement

The best LG TV of 2021 is, of course, the LG C1 OLED.

As the successor to last year's excellent LG CX, it was something of a shoe-in – even if the brightness boost found on the step-up LG G1 OLED made it a close call. As with last year's range, the C Series is where you'll find the optimum compromise between picture performance (incredible) and price (reasonable) for a modern OLED TV.

You're getting a knockout OLED picture, with an infinite contrast ratio, vivid colors, and deep blacks all on show. The new a9 Gen 4 AI processor only improves upon picture considerations like upscaling, too, even if we found upscaled faces could gain something of a reddish tinge during their transformation.

As with the older model, you're getting 4K resolution, Dolby Atmos audio on 2.2. channel speakers, and HDMI 2.1 inputs too – a great choice for a gaming TV to with your PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Its smallest 48-inch OLED size helps to bring the cost down, too – while a new-for-2021 83-inch option will offer a bigger more impactful experience for those that can afford it. The LG C1 OLED may not have every new trick up LG's sleeve (OLED evo, mainly) but the flexible sizing, reasonable price point and host of modern technologies makes it an obvious choice for the best LG TV out there today.

Best value LG TV: LG BX OLED

OLED on a budget


Screen size: 55-inch, 65-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel type: OLED

Smart TV: webOS

HDR: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision

Reasons to buy

+LG's cheapest OLED+Incredible color contrast

Reasons to avoid

-Some video noise in dark scenes-Less advanced processing

Can’t afford the CX, or don’t feel like you need the latest processing to satisfy your cinephile needs?  The LG BX OLED may be the one for you.

The BX may have only launched in late 2020, but it immediately became a must-buy for those after a lower-cost OLED compared to the CX or Gallery Series. By packing in a cheaper (if less capable) a7 Gen 3 processor, it managed to knock a decent amount off the asking price for an OLED TV, and offers both great performance and great value.

You're getting pretty much all the perks of a more premium LG TV, with the webOS smart TV platform, individual pixel control, deep blacks, and the like.

The only place it falls short is in the processing, which has had to take a hit in order to keep costs down. There is some mild video noise in dark scenes, as well as occasional (if not very regular) motion blur. These won't be huge issues for everyone, though they'll be more noticeable if you're watching a lot of dark, moody television and films.

Things are changing for 2021, with a new entry-level A1 OLED that looks set to undercut the B Series on price, though it will sacrifice HDMI 2.1 ports and some of the audio output (20W rather than 40W) to do so. For now, though, this is the cheapest OLED you can buy from LG Electronics.

Best blowout LG TV: LG G1 Gallery OLED

A premium OLED TV that reaches for the light


Screen size: 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel type: OLED

Smart TV: webOS

HDR: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision

Reasons to buy

+Outstanding contrast+Impressively thin design

Reasons to avoid

-No stand included-Sound system struggles with bass

After something a bit more stylish? The LG G1 OLED is a knockout television that builds on the sleek design of last year's Gallery Series OLED and somehow makes it better.

The real hero here is LG's new OLED evo technology, which updates the panel structure to eke out even more brightness – without increasing blooming effects or, we're told, the chance of burn-in. The LG G1 looks to be a real revolution for the OLED TV maker, then, and certainly offers an upgrade over the cheaper LG C1 OLED – unlike last year, when the CX and GX models were worlds apart in price but effectively offered the same picture performance.

It's an expensive set, and the Dolby Atmos sound system isn't the best for bass – something that will effect all the other LG OLEDs in this guide. But the breathtakingly slim design makes it a real centerpiece television, with the contrast and color benefits of OLED pushed to new, lighting-enhanced heights. The new a9 Gen 4 AI processor is even more capable of smartly upscaling and processing onscreen objects in the most suitable way. Motion processing in particular has got something of an upgrade too.

Watch out though: the G1 is really designed to be wall-mounted, and it won't come with a TV stand or feet out of the box. You can buy a floorstanding Gallery Stand alongside, or find a third-party solution for placing on a counter, though.

LG TV model numbers 2021: LG’s latest OLED, QNED and NanoCell TVs explained

Like every other TV manufacturer out there, LG has a penchant for labelling its TVs with extremely long-winded names comprised of apparently random letters and digits. The industry-leading South Korean firm sells a huge range of televisions, but it doesn’t do a very good job of helping consumers tell them apart.

These mind-boggling product codes may look like a confusing jumble of characters at first glance but, would you believe it, they do actually mean something. At Expert Reviews, we’re always testing the latest LG TVs and we’re here to help you to make sense of LG’s tricky TV naming system. When it comes time to buy that new LG TV, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting.

What you need to know about LG’s 2021 TV line-up

LG’s 2020 TV range was beyond impressive and this year the South Korean titan has upped the digital entertainment ante once again, launching a stunning new lineup that includes OLEDs, MiniLEDs, QNEDs, NanoCells, LCDs and even (for a ridiculous sum) a ‘rollable’ model.

LG TVs 2021: The new technology

Naturally, each of these TVs comes packed with cutting-edge tech, including a new iteration of LG’s Alpha processor, our first look at the company’s ‘evo’ panel technology, plus a fresh update of its webOS smart platform.

LG’s newly minted Alpha 9 Gen 4 processor brings upgraded Object Enhancement and Scene Detection to the picture department, supposedly recognising and optimising more of the image than any previous LG chipset. 2021 also sees the emergence of LG’s OLED evo panel. The ‘evo’, LG informs, stands for ‘evolution’. What that means is that LG has changed the organic element of its OLED, using new red and blue materials and a green layer to create better-focused light and colour, plus an impressive 20% increase in brightness.

Finally, the new WebOS 6.0 aims to deliver a more streamlined, intuitive system for finding and selecting what to watch, presenting users with a full home screen as opposed to a string of pop-up apps.

LG TVs 2021: The Models

We’ll start with a brief look at the R (or R1) ‘Rollable’, LG’s advanced, flexible, rolling screen system that scrolls up out of its own self-contained Dolby Atmos soundbar audio system. This uber-premium 4K OLED is A) hugely impressive and B) hugely expensive, with a ludicrous asking price of £99,999.

At top of the non-novelty OLED series sits the Z1 range, headed by the OLED88Z19LA – yours for the princely sum of £30,000. A tricked-out 8K with the new Alpha 9 processor, it has a 120Hz panel, a 4.2ch 60W sound system, plus four HDMI 2.1 inputs that support VRR and 4K at 120Hz for next-gen gaming. A 77in is also available for a more palatable £20,000.

Stepping down, the new G1 series is the first to feature the new evo panel tech. Packing the new Alpha 9 processor, 4.2ch 60W audio, full next-gen gaming support and the extra visual abilities of evo, it’s a 4K OLED to be reckoned with. Available in 55in, 65in and 77in sizes, with prices starting at £2,000.

The C1 OLED range, although still incredibly well-specced, is not blessed with the innovative evo tech, and the audio is slimmed down to 2.2ch and 40W. However, next-gen gaming is assured across the five different size options (starting at £1,299) and the picture quality is the best in its price range; you can read all about its HDR prowess in our LG C1 55in review.

Moving onto the B1 series, we step down to the Alpha 7 chip, but retain the audio set-up and gaming support of the C1 range. Three size options start at £1600. Addressing the all-new entry-class OLED, the four A1 options remain exceptional OLED 4K TV prospects, just with the older Alpha 7 processor, a 60Hz refresh rate, and no support for next-gen gaming.

Below the OLED TVs come four QNED models: QNED99, QNED95, QNED90 and QNED85. Thes premium LCD TVs will featuring ‘Quantum NanoCell Emiting Diode’ tech combined with MiniLED backlights that allow for hundreds of dimming zones. Two will be 8K with Alpha 9 chips, two 4K with the Alpha 7. All but the cheapest 4K support next-gen gaming. Pricing has not been confirmed and they are not currently listed on LG’s UK site.

Next, cutting MiniLED and therefore cost, LG’s NANO range of one 8K and six 4K TVs uses the company’s NanoCell technology to enhance colour vividness. The top of the range 8K NANO96 (55in, 65in, 75in, 86in) features the α9 Gen4 AI processor 8K, while the entry-level 4K NANO75 runs on a basic Quad Core Processor 4K. Last of all (but best of all, for those on a budget) comes LG’s UHD LCD line-up for 2021. There are six offerings here; the cheapest we know of so far, the LG UP75, begins at £499.

LG TV 2021 line-up model names explained

You could be forgiven for thinking that 4K TV manufacturers such as LG go out of their way to make the world of model numbers as inaccessible to consumers as possible. But while the designations of all the latest TVs from the South Korean giant may seem a mystery, there is in fact method to their madness… mostly. Taking their latest line-up from the top down, we’ll help you to make some sense of all the alpha-numerical uncertainty.

OLED Z-class: LG OLED88Z19LA

At the dizzying pinnacle of LG’s 2021 range sits the OLED88Z19LA, an 88in 8K option at the equally discombobulating price of £30,000. The model designation here can be decoded quite easily, but let’s break it down: OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode, describing the screen type. Next comes ‘88’, which refers to the screen size (measured vertically). The ‘Z’ represents the TV’s place in the LG pantheon, with ‘A’ being the bottom range and ‘Z’ the top. Then there’s the ‘1’ which marks the model’s year, in this case 2021. Finally, comes the ‘9LA’ denoting some slight variant in spec or design.


Not many numbers to faff about with here. The ‘OLED’ part is as above, while the ‘R’, stands for ‘Rollable’ and the ‘1’ for 2021. Rollable, you say? Yes, this 130in 4K features much of the top-end spec of the Z1 range, but here the screen rolls up and out of its own soundbar audio system sat beneath when required. Amazing technology? Undeniably. Affordable? If you have a spare £99,999, then yes.


Down from the Z-class, and also available in 65in and 77in inch sizes, here we see another ‘screen type-screen size-class-year’ designation (OLED-55-G-1), the final three letters holding the same significance as with the Z-class models. This range features the company’s evo panel, an innovation that creates brighter, crisper images and improved detail over standard OLEDs.


The mid-range C-class OLED comes in 48in, 55in, 65in, 77in and 83in iterations. Top of the Cs is the OLED83C1 and here OLED-83-C-1 = 83in C-class OLED for 2021. All ‘C’ models retain the Alpha 9 Gen 4 and next-gen gaming abilities. Check out our full review of the stunning LG C1 OLED for more information – it’s the mid-range 4K to beat in 2020.

OLED B-class: LG OLED55B16LA

B-class models (available in 55in, 65in and 77in sizes) steps down to the Alpha 7 Gen 4 processor, but still features essential gaming refresh rates. As above, OLED-55-B-1-6LA equates to OLED screen-55-inches-B-class-2021.


Finally for the OLEDs, the A1 series has 48in, 55in, 65in and 77n options. As with others, OLED-48-A-1 means an OLED screen, 48in in size, A-class and released in 2021.


These sub-OLED 4K and 8K models use Mini LED backlights and LG’s Quantum (‘Q’) NanoCell (‘N’) Colour Technology and the ‘Emiting Diodes’ bit of LED (‘ED’) to form ‘QNED’. Models in this range run by size first, then type, and then – omitting the year – either ‘99UPA’ or ‘90UPA’, the difference being a variance in spec. So, 86-QNED-90UPA = 86-inch-QNED. Simple.

NanoCell: LG 75NANO90UPA

Similarly, the new LG 4K NanoCell models (without Mini LEDs) will be rolled out designated by size, type and slight specification variance, thus: 75-NANO-90UPA. So, nothing to state the year again, but all relatively straightforward.

LCDs: LG 43UP80006LA

This year sees two new UHDs from LG too, the UP80 and UP70. Taking the 43UP80006LA as our example, here we have 43-U-P-80-00-6LA, which translates as screen size (43), screen type (UHD), model year (P), series (80), design or spec variation (00), and code number (6LA).

LG TV 2021 lineup: every OLED, Mini LED, and NanoCell TV coming this year

What does the LG TV 2021 line-up look like? We’ve recently reviewed the LG C1 OLED TV, and we know it's got a fantastic OLED in its midst. But big changes are also on the way, in the form of expanded TV panel sizes, like the recently released 83-inch displays from LG.

LG ended 2020 in a strong position, with the runaway success of its popular LG CX OLED. Now the TV maker is clearly taking pains to stress that it's tackling any remaining areas for improvement, with across-the-board improvements for the LG C1 OLED, and upped brightness in the LG G1 Gallery OLED through a new 'OLED evo' technology.

The step-down B Series is no longer LG's cheapest OLED TV. This year, that moniker goes to the entry-level A Series. This range will still feature an a7 processing chip but will likely feature other cost-saving measures too. We still expect to see an LG B1 OLED release a little later in the year though.

There are more 8K TVs, too, with the Nano9Z and Nano9X NanoCell LCD televisions, along with a host of 4K models we go into detail about below.

There’s also increased support for gaming functionality, with four HDMI 2.1 ports for each new OLED set, as well as VRR (variable refresh rate) and game streaming services Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now landing on new LG TVs too.

It’s not just the new LG TVs we’re excited about in 2021, but accessories, like the LG Magic Remote, which comes with LG OLED TVs. This remote really stands out because you can use it as a regular point and click remote, but it also comes with motion technology built-in, which responds to gestures and significantly upgrades your viewing experience once you get used to it. 

Read on for the full lowdown on what's coming this year, the new technologies LG is making use of, and the 2020 LG TVs that we think need to be improved upon.

UPDATE:LG's Mini LED TV range of 'QNED' screens has now rolled out globally, bringing the company's exciting new combination of NanoCell LCD and Mini LED backlighting to the world for the first time.

The rollout is taking place throughout July, coming first to the US, and then to the UK, Europe, and Australia in the successive weeks. The smallest QNED screens will come in 65-inch sizes, with step-up 75-inch and 86-inch versions for select models (the QNED99 8K TV and QNED90 4K TV). 

OLED 2021 TVs

LG 2021 OLED TVs 

LG Z1 8K OLED (77, 88-inch): LG's only 8K OLED TV is sure to be pricey, but it's one of very few televisions that meld 8K resolution with the benefits of an OLED panel. It's only available in a couple of larger sizes, though a bit cheaper than in previous years. At the top-end LG OLED, though, you're also getting top-class upscaling, Dolby Atmos audio, and the HDMI 2.1 / VRR gaming features found on the C1 and G1. We've only got UK pricing (below), but US figures are sure to follow shortly.

  • 77-inch OLED77Z19LA is available May 2021 for £19,999
  • 88-inch OLED88Z19LA is available May 2021 for £24,999

LG G1 4K OLED (55, 65, 77-inch): The Gallery Series OLED has a successor, with a slimmed-down form factor and an ‘OLED evo’ upgrade to the picture’s brightness that even the LG CX won’t be benefitting from. It’s set to be brighter than last year’s GX too, and come with the option of a paired Gallery Stand for those not wanting to drill this stunner into a wall. Featuring 4K HDR, Dolby Vision, and Atmos too.

LG C1 4K OLED (48, 55, 65, 77, 83-inch): The successor to last year’s popular CX OLED is the C1, with a new 83-inch size, an a9 Gen 4 AI processor, and support for Dolby Vision / Atmos. You’ll get the most sizing options with the C Series, going as small as 48 inches and including a new 83-inch size.

In our review, we called the C1 one of the best TVs at any price. It’s missing the new OLED evo panels going into the G1 OLED, but even in their absence the C1 produces colorful, bright and rich pictures with support for most types of HDR. There might be one or two areas for improvement, but otherwise the LG C1 OLED is still the gold standard for 2021 OLED TVs.

LG B1 4K OLED (55, 65, 77-inch): The B Series OLED isn't the cheapest model any more, but a new iteration is still coming. It has 40W of downward-firing audio, rather than the 20W of the A1 model below, and has two HDMI 2.1 ports to recommend it as a gaming TV too. It uses the a7 Gen 4 AI processor, rather than a higher-spec a9 model, so you can expect a little more video noise than in pricier OLEDs, but still with an excellent 4K HDR picture. 

We now have UK pricing, but the B1 OLED won't be coming to the US. Read more in our LG B1 OLED guide.

LG A1 4K OLED (48, 55, 65, 77-inch): This new entry-level OLED features the a7 Gen 4 AI processor, supports Dolby Vision and Atmos, and packs in 20W of audio, but doesn’t support HDMI 2.1 in its three HDMI inputs (unlike last year’s LG BX OLED). We’ll no doubt hear more soon, but for now know that this will be the cheapest LG OLED you’re getting this year.

QNED 2021 TVs

LG 2021 QNED TVs 

LG QNED99 8K TV (65, 75, 86-inch): The Nano9Z is this year’s highest-spec ‘QNED’ television, meaning it makes use of a Mini LED backlight to improve brightness control and contrast over standard LCD-LED displays. It’s an 8K TV too, and packs a 120Hz panel with Full Array Local Dimming, as well as supporting hands-free voice commands.

US pricing and release date

  • 65-inch 65QNED99UPA is available July 2021 for $3,499
  • 75-inch 75QNED99UPA is available July 2021 for $4,799
  • 86-inch 86QNED99UPA is available May 2021 for $6,499

LG QNED95 8K TV (65, 75-inch): The QNED95 cleaves close to the QNED99, as a Mini LED 8K TV, but makes do with a 60Hz panel rather than 120Hz. It uses an 8K iteration of the a9 Gen 4 AI Processor too.

LG QNED90 4K TV (65, 75, 86-inch): This QNED television packs in 4K resolution, a 120Hz panel, and Full Array Local Dimming through its Mini LED backlight. It uses the a7 Gen 4 AI processor rather than the a9 though.

US pricing and release date

  • 65-inch 65QNED90UPA is available July 2021 for $1,999
  • 75-inch 75QNED90UPA is available July 2021 for $2,999
  • 86-inch 86QNED90UPA is available July 2021 for $3,999

LG QNED85 4K TV (65, 75-inch): This step-down QNED model is also 4K, and matches the QNED90 for specs aside from its 60Hz panel.

LG Nano90 4K NanoCell (55, 65, 75, 86-inch): We’re no longer in Mini LED / QNED territory, with these 2021 iterations on last year’s NanoCell LCD TVs. The Nano90 is a 4K set featuring Nano Color, a 120Hz panel,  It’s compatible with the Gallery Stand, too.

LG Nano80 4K NanoCell (50, 55, 65, 75-inch): This step-down 4K NanoCell model drops the motion rate from 120Hz to 60Hz, with an exception for its 86-inch size (which still features 120Hz). You’re making do with a quard-core processor rather than the a7 Gen 4 AI, and you won’t get Dolby Vision either. The backlight uses local dimming rather than Full Array too. It is, however, Gallery Stand compatible, unlike the other NanoCell 2021 TVs.

LG Nano75 4K NanoCell (43, 50, 55, 65-inch): Almost the same as above, but without local dimming or compatibility with the Gallery Stand.


LG 2021 UHD TVs 

LG UP80 (43, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 82, 86-inch): Don’t need the fancy stuff? This 4K UHD television packs a 60Hz panel for most sizes, with a 120Hz panel for its largest 82-inch / 86-inch iterations. Also with a quad-core processor, ThinQ AI and Magic Remote, and a slim ‘unibody’ form factor that’s compatible with the Gallery Stand.

LG UP70 (43, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75-inch): Similar to above, but every size is 60Hz, and you won’t get the Magic Remote thrown in. There’s no ‘unibody’ design or Gallery Stand compatibility either, but it is compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa.

New LG TV 2021 technology

LG TV 2021 technology: what's new?

So, what’s new with LG TVs in 2021? We’re getting a new round of processors, as ever, with the a9 getting a Gen 4 AI iteration, as well as a step-down a7 Gen 3 model for the new A Series. (The A Series will cleave close to the B Series of previous years, for those wondering.)

It’s that ‘AI’ part of the new a9 chip that piques our interest, though. LG claims its new chip will use deep learning to better analyze discrete objects onscreen, meaning people, backgrounds, and sections of text are all properly distinguished from each other.

The biggest change this year is probably the introduction of Mini LED, an LCD TV technology also used by TCL. LG’s Mini LED screens aren’t replacing its OLED TVs, but it could give new life to the company’s LCD displays, which tend to feel a bit underwhelming next to their impressive OLED siblings.

What is Mini LED? This panel technology makes use of a huge number of tiny LEDs (30 thousand in LG’s first Mini LED set), and is what LG calls “the ultimate evolution of LCD TVs”. LG’s Mini LED sets will be branded as ‘QNED’ (a garbled contraction of Quantum NanoCell Mini LED), which does sound eerily similar to Samsung’s QLED branding. The underlying technology is very different, though, given the Mini LED backlight, which should vastly outperform the brightness and contrast of traditional LED TVs.

OLED, QNED, or NanoCell?

LG has quite a few TV technologies in play this year. Here's what you need to know.

OLED uses organic light-emitting diodes in each pixel to create virtually unlimited contrast (a pure white pixel next to a totally black pixel next to it, for example) but is limited by its peak brightness.

Nano Cell uses an LED-LCD screen with quantum dot-like technology to enhance color saturation, reach higher peak brightness and offer wider viewing angles than traditional LED-LCD.

QNED is a new TV technology for 2021, with the acronym standing for quantum nano-emitting diodes (yup). It makes use of a Mini LED backlight with 30,000 tiny LEDs, almost 2,500 dimming zones for exceptional brightness control and contrast (for an LCD screen, at least).

LG says its new backlight “comprises up to almost 30,000 tiny LEDs that produce incredible peak brightness and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 when paired with up to 2,500 dimming zones and advanced local dimming zones.”

We have to discuss the new TV sizes, of course. LG Display, which supplies LG Electronics with OLED panels, is introducing a new 83-inch OLED panel size, as well as a 42-inch size for those after something smaller. It’s likely we’ll see both sizes for flagship sets like the C Series and G Series, if not the A Series too – and we know that the 48-inch OLED panel introduced last year is going to be more widespread across the LG range.

LG’s webOS smart TV platform has changed sizeably, with the usual horizontal icon bar now becoming a screen-filling interface, packed with recommended titles based on your viewing history.

The LG Magic Remote has undergone something of an overhaul, too, with a new ergonomic shape as well as the introduction of NFC Magic Tap technology to enable fast screen mirroring from a smartphone. It will feature dedicated buttons for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus, and LG Channels – as well as ThinQ, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa smart assistants.

Gaming is a big concern this year – understandably, given the recent launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. And LG’s 2021 TVs are set to feature VRR (variable refresh rate), Nvidia G-Sync for reduced screen tearing from connected PCs, and four HDMI 2.1 ports (for the OLEDs, at least). There’s also 

We’ll even see support for Google Stadia and the Nvidia GeForce Now streaming services land in the second half of 2021, in a major boost to both platforms.

LG’s AI Sound Pro feature will also upmix audio to 5.1.2 channel sound, for a surround sound-esque effect, though we don’t expect it will ever quite feel like the real thing.

For UK viewers, Freeview Play support is still absent after 2020’s lapse on LG TVs, but we’re told LG is working on amending this.


LG OLED 2020 TVs: what's left over from last year?


Model Numbers: LG 55OLEDBX, 65OLEDBX

The most affordable LG OLED is the one that, unfortunately, comes out the latest – though it finally launched in early September. The LG BX OLED is available in two sizes so far (55- and 65-inch), with a 77-inch model likely coming down the line. 

As the cheapest member of the OLED family, the BX will use the slightly less powerful a7 Gen 3 Processor instead of the a9, which means it doesn’t benefit from AI upscaling, a pretty essential feature if you’re thinking about buying at a larger size. 

However, last year's B9 didn't suffer much in the picture department, and the BX is likely to be a smart buy this year too – especially since it's retailing at just $1,399 / £1,299 / AU$2,795 for a 55-inch size, significantly less than its B9 predecessor did at launch. The larger 65-inch model costs $2,099 / £1,999 / AU$3,795.

You can expect our review in the coming weeks – until then, hold tight!

Tv classes lg

If you're looking for 4K TV with the best possible picture, you want to buy an OLED TV — plain and simple. OLED TVs are a little more expensive, but they're able to deliver a superior picture than a standard LCD TVs. They use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which allows them to have more control over each pixel. So even though they have the same number of pixels and the same overall resolution as 4K LCD TVs, a 4K OLED TV is able produce a picture with significantly more detail and contrast.

For those in the market for an OLED TV, you most likely want to buy one from LG. The company has been industry-leader in OLED technology for years and it actually supplies the OLED panels to other TV manufacturers, such as Vizio, Sony and Panasonic. So the fact is: if you don't buy an OLED TV from LG, you're most likely paying a little extra for one anyway.

The other great thing is that because LG has been making OLED TVs for so long — since 2013 — they now make a variety of different models at varying price points. And if you're wondering about the price, you might be surprised. OLED TVs used to be really expensive just a few years ago when the technology was new. Now, however, depending on the model and size, you could buy an OLED TV for a little over $1,000.

The problem with LG's OLED TVs is that they're not names aren't actually that consumer friendly. With names like ZX, WX, CX and BX, it's not exactly intuitive. So we're going to break it down for you. In general, the higher-end models are more expensive because they have nicer hardware (like better speakers and slimmer bezels) and more advanced technologies (for backlighting and frame rates). They also generally are available only in larger sizes.

The BX Series


LG's most affordable line of OLED TVs is the B series, and you're going to want to look for the "LG BX" for the 2020 models. (If you see an LG "B9," you're looking at a 2019 model.) . These TVs actually have similar features as the LG's higher-end CX and GX lines, such as support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound, but lack a little processing power so it's not going to deliver quite the picture quality.

The BX OLED TVs come in three sizes, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch, with the smaller model starting at $1,499. They started shipping in September 2020.

The CX Series


The next step up is the LG's CX series of OLED TVs and it's designed for customers who want a little nicer OLED TV, but still don't want to spend big on one of the LG's flagship OLEDs. Compared to the LG BX, the LG CX has a higher-end processor that enables to produce a brighter picture and handle dark scenes a little better.

The CX OLED TVs come in four sizes, 48-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch, with the smallest model starting at $1,499.

Buy Now: $1,499

The GX Series


The G (or "Gallery") series is new to LG's 2020 OLED TV lineup. It's a beautiful OLED TV that's almost as slim as LG's wallpaper TVs and rests flat against your wall. The GX is different from LG's wallpaper OLED TVs because it doesn't require an extra box for speakers or connectivity ports — all those components are built into the frame. The GX is an OLED TV designed for people who don't want to the hassle of shopping for a soundbar or speaker system. Most importantly, however, it's designed for people who want a beautiful wall-mounted TV that looks like a piece of art.

The GX OLED TVs come in three sizes, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch, with the smallest model starting at $2,099.

Buy Now: $2,099+

The WX Wallpaper Series


The W Series is the company's famed Wallpaper line of OLED TVs. As you probably guessed, these TVs are incredibly thin, with a frame that's 4 millimeters thick, so they basically rest flush right up against the wall. They're also upgraded with the best hardware and software so they produce LG's best image. Each TV comes with a dedicated box that houses the soundbar and other connectivity components, in case you want to build out your home theater system.

The LG OLED WX Wallpaper comes in two different sizes, 65-inch and 75-inch, with the larger model new to 2020. The 65-inch model starts at $4,199. Pricing of the 75-inch model has yet to be released.

Buy Now: $4,199+

The ZX Series


The ZX series is LG's first line of 8K OLED TVs — in fact, it's the only 8K OLED TV that's currently on sale. It's the pinnacle of what LG has to offer, and comes with a gorgeous stand and integrated sound bar. It's no doubt out of most people's price ranges, however, with the smaller model starting at around $20,000.

The LG Signature ZX 8K OLED is available in two sizes, 77-inch and 88-inch, both of which are more expensive than a lot of cars. The smaller models starts at around $20,000, while you can add $10,000 to to the larger model.

Best LG TVs in 2021

The best LG TVs prove that LG is a top TV brand for good reason, with the company dominating both the manufacture and selling of OLED TVs. But these top models go further with some of the best picture quality, sound and smart features of any 4K TVs you can buy. From the great webOS smart TV platform to the excellence offered by OLED panels, LG offers some of the best TVs you can buy.

LG's not just a prominent TV manufacturer. The company's selection of OLED, NanoCell and LED TVs mean that LG also has a larger range of offerings than many manufacturers. From the ultra-premium to the affordable and entry-level, LG TVs have found a regular home on our best TVs list for years, and the company offers a great selection for every budget and need.

What are the best LG TVs?

While LG offers a handful of different TV models, we have found the LG OLED TVs are consistently some of the best TVs on the market. From the entry-level LG BX OLED to the premium LG G1 OLED TV — or even the giant 88-inch LG ZX 8K OLED — LG's best TV aren't just a good value, they're some of the best TVs you can buy.

Our top recommendation is the LG CX OLED TV, which offers the best mix of premium features and superb performance with a fairly reasonable price. 

For a truly premium OLED experience, we love this year's LG G1 OLED, which has a sleek wall-hugging design and impeccable picture and sound, as well as LG's new next gen panel using OLED evo technology for better brightness and color.

For a really budget-friendly option, the LG BX OLED TV is extremely affordable when you realize that it still delivers OLED quality.

Weight: 63.9 pounds

Reasons to buy

+Exclusive OLED evo panel delivers brighter picture+More affordable than last year’s Gallery Series+Same stunningly-thin design+New remote is a major improvement

Reasons to avoid

-OLED evo offers minimal improvement-WebOS 6.0 is disappointing

The LG G1 OLED TV is the updated version of LG's superb Gallery OLED, boasting a premium 20 millimeter-thick design and sleek flush-to-the-wall mounting setup. It's still the best 4K OLED TV made by LG, but as the first TV with LG's second-gen OLED evo technology, it falls short of some claimed performance improvements we were pretty excited for.

That said, the LG G1 OLED is still an impressive OLED set, and LG has even knocked the price down a bit, while updating almost everything else about the set. The slim OLED features more comfortable remote control, enhanced gaming features, and the latest version of webOS, all while delivering the same excellent picture quality and impeccable sound that we expect from LG's best OLED models. The LG G1 OLED TV stands as a reminder of just how far modern TV technology has come — we just hope it hasn’t plateaued.

+Striking picture+Good gamer+Admirable sound+Competitive price for an OLED

Reasons to avoid

-Lesser video processing than more up-to-date model

For a less-expensive way to get an OLED TV, it's hard to beat the LG BX OLED. Boasting LG's excellent webOS software and a ton of smart TV capabilities, it matches the undeniable picture quality of OLED with one of the best 4K smart TV experiences around. It's not the only affordable OLED TV on the market, but it's an incredible value that delivers nearly everything we love about LG's more expensive models in a highly affordable OLED 4K smart TV.

4. Best 8K LG TV: LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series

Affordable 8K quality


Available Screen Sizes: 88 inches

Screen Type: Quantum Dot/NanoCell + Mini-LED

Refresh Rate: 120 Hz

HDMI ports: 4 HDMI 2.1

Size: 65.6 x 37.7 x 1.1 inches

Weight: 82 pounds

Reasons to buy

+Eye-popping 8K video quality+Excellent brightness, color reproduction+Good sound quality, with lots of additional options available

Reasons to avoid

-Requires significant viewing space for full 8K effect-Inconsistent upscaling-Sluggish controls-Limited 8K content

The LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series 8K TV boasts an awesome features et, from the inclusion of mini-LED backlight to the union of NanoCell and QLED technologies. We were impressed by the brightness and great color accuracy, and the screen size options are ideal for the higher resolution. With webOS 6.0 offering the best smart features available for LG TVs and 8K upscaling allowing 4K and even 1080p content to be enjoyed on the ultra HD screen, it's one of the first 8K TVs we've seen that we recommend… sort of.

For everything the LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series 8K TV offers, it’s still a tough sell, largely because 8K content is still pretty much non-existent. That, more than anything else – like the sluggish controls or inconsistencies in upscaling quality – gives us pause in recommending the set, even if it's one of the most affordable 8K sets we've seen.

Read our full LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series 8K TV review.

How much do LG TVs cost?

Our favorite LG OLED TV is the LG CX OLED, with the 55-inch model selling for $1,349 and the 65-inch model going for $1,949. The entry level BX OLED, on the other hand, sells for less, with the 55-inch model selling for $1,299 (tied with the Vizio OLED TV for the most affordable budget OLED on the market), and the 65-inch model for $1,799.

At the higher end, the LG GX OLED is the most expensive 4K model LG has, with the 55-inch model selling for $1,899 and the 65-inch set for $2,299. And if you want to get an 8K set, the LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series 8K TV sells for $3,499 for the 75-inch model we reviewed – which is relatively affordable for an 8K TV.

What is OLED?

LG's best TVs are all OLED, and it's easy to see why. They offer superb color and brightness, best-in-class contrast and sharpness, and offer slimmer designs than even the sleekest LCD-based smart TVs. But what is OLED, exactly?

OLED is an abbreviation for Organic Light Emitting Diode, a display technology that uses organic compounds in its pixel structure. (Lest you think you've got a petri dish of bacteria cultures in every OLED TV, the organic compounds in question are electroluminescent materials like organometallic chelates, p-phenylene vinylene and N-vinylcarbazole. No living cultures involved.)

These materials are printed onto glass with a pixel structure that uses red, green, blue, and white points of light to create the individual pixels that make up the 3840 x 2160 pixels that make up a 4K screen. Each one lights up when current is applied, meaning that each pixel lights up individually, a major difference from LCD TVs, which use a larger backlight behind an LCD panel.

Thanks to the unique per-pixel nature of OLED's self-illuminating technology, the displays on LG's best TVs offer infinite contrast with true blacks, delivering sharper looking images, better HDR performance and great overall performance. The latest OLED models also deliver superb color and a wide color gamut, routinely exceeding the sRGB standard, with higher-than-100% scores in our color gamut benchmark tests.

The result is the best TV technology you can presently buy, offering dramatically better picture quality than LCD TVs and even a step up from the best quantum-dot (aka QLED) models being sold.

What is LG webOS

One of the defining elements of LG smart TVs is webOS, the software platform that delivers all of the apps and smart features. LG has some of the smartest TVs on the market, and webOS is what makes it all work. From the LG Content Store's 200+ apps to the MagicRemote's motion controls, there's a lot to love about LG smart TVs.

Some of the most distinctive features of webOS include support for both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants, a control dashboard for smart home devices and LG Channels, an aggregated list of free streaming services and movies.

LG's webOS may be best known as proprietary software, but it's being licensed to new manufacturers this year. Unlike the still-proprietary Samsung Tizen or Vizio SmartCast, which are only found on TVs from its respective manufacturers, LG will be partnering with manufacturers like RCA, Polaroid and Konka, making webOS a more common sight in the budget TV section of your local Best Buy or Walmart. 

Are LG 8K TVs worth buying?

Like competitors Samsung and Sony, LG has a handful of 8K TVs in it's lineup of models. The selection of 8K sets includes ultra-expensive OLED models, like the LG ZX 8K OLED, but there are also non-OLED 8K models, like the 75-inch LG QNED MiniLED 99 Series 8K TV, which sells for $3,499, or the smaller 65-inch version that sells for $2,499.

But even with both impressive 8K OLED models and affordable QNED 8K sets, we don't recommend you buy an 8K LG TV – or any 8K TV, for that matter. Without any real 8K content available, the higher resolution of a 7,680 by 4,320 screen isn't worth the extra expense. LG's 8K sets look fantastic, but we're not recommending anybody spend their money on an 8K TV this year. (Find out more in our article Should you buy an 8K TV in 2021?

How to choose the best LG TV for you

When shopping for a new TV, settling on your brand of choice may answer some questions, such as your choice of smart TV platform or preferred voice assistant, but it's only part of the decision-making process. Once you've decided that you like LG smart TVs, you'll still need to determine which model you want, with questions of features, performance and pricing that still need consideration.

Thankfully, our in-depth reviews dig into the specifics of each model line, helping you to understand which LG models have certain defining features, and which offer the best value for the price.

Here are the defining price and features of the different LG OLED models to help you decide which best fits your needs and budget.

ModelPrice rangeScreen sizesFeatures
LG Signature ZX OLED$19,999 - $29,99977, 88 inches8K resolution, integrated floor stand, webOS 5.0, Alpha 9 Gen 3 processor, 120Hz refresh rate

LG BX OLED$1,299 - $1,79955, 65 inches4K resolution, webOS 5.0, Alpha 7 Gen 3 processor, 120 Hz refresh rate

Our coverage has focused on LG's OLED TVs, because they represent the best performance of any LG smart TVs, even at different price points. And while LG's non-OLED models are still decent quality 4K sets, the OLED models deliver the better picture quality by far.

Of the models listed above, our favorite may be the LG CX OLED, but both the LG Signature ZX 8K OLED and the LG Signature GX OLED are more premium sets with objectively better features (and a higher price to match).
