LG is rolling out its new 'Gallery' TV and a refreshed version of the 'Wallpaper' model. The OLED TVs are available in 55 to 77 inches with HDMI 2.1, webOS, Apple features, and more.
Gallery & wallpaper OLED TVs
LG has phased out its E series of 'picture-in-glass' OLED TVs and introduced GX, a new line of TVs designed to hang flush on the wall. The company has also refreshed the design of its 'wallpaper' OLED TV (WX)
The Gallery (GX) screen not as slim as the Wallpaper (WX) screen, which has a separate electronics/speaker box that has been redesigned for the 2020 version. On the other hand all ports, speakers, and electronics are built-in. GX comes bundled with a slim wall bracket solution. An optional soundbar (SNX7) for GX will also be available, said LG.

With self-emitting OLED technology, LG is promising excellent picture quality including pixel-level control for HDR. GX and WX support three HDR formats (HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision). The TVs also feature 4K resolution, HDMI 2.1 ports, Filmmaker Mode, and the Alpha 9-3 video processor.

Both new TV models feature HDMI 2.1 ports with support for up to 4K120 inputs from next-generation game consoles and video players. In addition, GX supports three variable refresh rate systems: HDMI VRR, AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync.
The company's webOS platform offers access to streaming apps, including the Apple TV app and Disney+, but not HBO Max that launched earlier this week. New streaming services are increasingly prioritizing platforms like Apple's tvOS over Smart TV platforms.
LG 'Wallpaper' WX OLED
Like Samsung with its Serif TV and 'The Frame', LG has aspired to create unique TVs that can set it apart from the competition. GX is a step up from CX, while WX is a unique TV that no other manufacturer can offer at this time. Later this year, the South Korean company will introduce the world's first rollable TV (RX).
LG GX and WX are available now in the US and Europe, with broader availability expected next month. Further details about pricing and availability can be found in the table below.
