LG’s 2013 TV line-up

LG has a massive line-up of TVs prepared for 2013. LG will release its first OLED-TV, smaller Ultra HD TVs, tons of LED models and a few plasma TVs. Most of the new TVs come with Smart TV features and LG’s passive 3D technology, Cinema 3D.

The OLED-TV is the first ever. After LG and Samsung both announced OLED-TVs in 2012 that never arrived, LG was keen on beating its competitor to market with an OLED-TV. LG’s OLED-TV has already become available in its home country of South Korea and will arrive in USA and Europe later this year as a refreshed model. It is now slightly thicker but has the cable connectors built in and a new base design.

LG will also release new Ultra HD TVs in 2013 built on LCD technology. The Ultra HD TVs will be available in 65 and 55 inch sizes with four times the pixels of conventional Full HD TVs. 3840x2160 pixels will not only help make 2D content even more impressive but also take 3D to the next level with LG’s passive 3D glasses that require no batteries.

LG’s line-up of LED models is vast. LA960 is the new flagship model with everything built-in, including LG’s Nano technology (that is different from the first implementations) and Cinema 3D. It has an extremely thin design with almost no bezel, which is the case for most of LG’s high-end to mid-range TVs in 2013. LG’s other LED models include the 8, 7, 6 and 5 series. The 8 series is called LA860 and will be available in up to 70 inches.

LG continues to promote its Cinema 3D technology


3D is still implemented in most of LG’s 2013 TVs and LG continues to bet on passive 3D that only requires polarized 3D glasses without batteries. Polarized 3D glasses are extremely cheap to buy and have no flicker. Only LG’s plasma TVs use active 3D technology with expensive shutter glasses.

LG’s 2013 Smart TV platform


LG also focuses on Smart TV and has obviously added some new apps in 2013. The most newsworthy additions are Miracast and NFC. Miracast allows you to push video, music and pictures from an Android smartphone or tablet (Android 4.0 or newer). NFC allows you to authenticate new devices for Miracast; for example your friends devices.

LG has developed a new dual-core chip that is said to speed up navigation and improve the TV app experience. The dual-core chip is found in most of the high-end and mid-range model but not in the cheaper TV ranges. They also use a dual-core chip but a design from last year that is slower.

LG’s new Magic remote with voice control


LG continues to push its Magic Remote design that is a Wii-like remote you can wave around in the air to control the TV. When you use it you will see a cursor on the TV screen but you can also use gestures such as side swiping. In addition, LG has implemented voice controls so you can speak out commands to make the TV do what you want.

LG is still committed to plasma TVs for now but has no new high-end model coming out in 2013; only mid-range and low-end plasma TVs.

Other features such as USB recording (only in Europe), DLNA and USB playback are obviously also integrated but LG is not advertising it.

LG’s 2013 TVs are rolling out in stores now and the full line-up should be available in May. The TVs will end with “00” in USA and “0V” in Europe. In some parts of Europe the ending letter might be different.
