LG's new 4K TVs boast 'nano cell' technology

LG's new 4K TVs feature 'nano cell' technology for even more impressive colors and detail

LG has been leading TV technology for a while now, with its dominance in OLED - and now, we're looking at 3 new sets that feature 'Nano Cell LCD' - with the SJ8000, SJ8500, and SJ9500.


The new series of TVs feature uniformly-sized particles that will provide more details and consistent colors, even when you're not sitting dead-center in front of your TV. Nano Cell technology "absorbs excess light wavelengths, preventing unwanted color bleeding (such as from green to blue or yellow), fading and other effects that reduce the vibrancy of the picture", reports Engadget.

LG has even teamed with Technicolor to ensure color accuracy is top notch, using a special Technicolor Expert Mode, and support for Advanced HDR. LG also throws in Dolby Vision, HDR10, and Hybrid Log Gamma support - so you won't be left out in the technological jargon arguments with your friends.

Moving back to the Nano Cell technology, which will feature an Active HDR feature that allows HDR data to be inserted into specific areas of individual frames.

The highest-end model is the upcoming SJ9500 which features a frame that measures in at just 0.27 inches at its slimmest point. Pricing and availability haven't been announced just yet.
