LG is preparing for CES 2019 which kicks off in just a few days, but the company is now teasing some of its new reveals ahead of times: new 2019 OLED TVs, 8K televisions, and new NanoCell LCD TVs that will support high frame rate (HDR) video inputs up to 120FPS.


The new HFR 120FPS and 8K resolution support is thanks to new HDMI 2.1 ports that LG will roll out on its flagship 2019 OLED TVs and "select" NanoCell LCD TVs, but both will also receive new enhanced audio return channel (eARC) and variable refresh rate (VRR) technology, as well as automatic low latency mode (ALLM) that will be perfect for gamers in the living room.

What is LG's new NanoCell technology? That is what LG is calling its new high-end range of LCD TVs, where they will rock enhanced colors, viewing angles, and thinner bezels. LG is going to be also including its AI abilities, Thinq technology, and Amazon Prime Video button on its refreshed Magic Remote control.

We will have full details on LG's new TVs next week during CES 2019.
