We were invited by LG to meet the new TV models of 2022, among the launches are the new QNED models. In addition to them, the OLED C2 and G2 models were also presented to us. And to top it all off, we have news in the software and the WebOS platform.
The models were presented to us at CASACOR in SP, which celebrates its 35th anniversary. A grandiose event for the architecture area, inside LG there is a reserved space to show the main white goods, as well as TVs, air conditioners and much more.
The new LG TVs of 2022
Let’s start by talking about the QNED models, which are really new at LG. The QNED models use MiniLEDs to illuminate their panels, in addition, LG uses NanoCell light filters combined with Quantum DOT technology to color the QNED screens. I can say that I watched the 8K model from the front, and my friends, the image and color quality is really amazing. Okay, it was 8K, but even so, the picture was perfect. These models of QNED TVs come to compete directly with QLED TVs from Samsung and TCL, LG enters this market as well.
In the positioning of LG’s TV catalogue, QNEDs are above NanoCell models and slightly below OLED models. The 2022 QNEDs have three model tiers, the QNED80, QNED90 and QNED99. I will now explain the differences between them.
QNED99 is the best among them. It is the model that has 8K technology, it is also the TV with the largest size. We only have 86″ and 75″. Prices are 35K for 86 inches and 18K for 75 inches. The QNED99 has a 4th generation Alpha 9 processor, has 4 HDMI 2.1 ports and 120Hz frequency. This one is backlit by mini LEDs.
- QNED99 86″: BRL 34,999
- QNED99 75″: BRL 17,999
The QNED90 is the intermediate model, there are also two sizes, 65 and 75″. However, now we are talking about a 4K TV, it has a frequency of 120Hz, FreeSync synchronization, it has 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and another 2 HDMI 2.0. It uses a processor 4th generation Alpha 7. It also has mini LED lighting. Prices start from 9,000 for 65 inches and 13,000 for 75 inches.
- QNED90 75″: BRL 12,999
- QNED90 65″: BRL 8,999
The QNED80 is the 2022 model. This one has 4 different sizes, 55″, 65″, 75″ and 86″. It has the latest 5th generation Alpha 7 processor. It has FreeSync, 120Hz and 1 HDMI 2.1 port. The difference between the QNED80 and the QNED90 is in the backlight, the 90 uses mini LEDs, while the QNED80 uses local beams on the lower and upper edges. In other words, it is a traditional LCD TV, which uses Quantum Dots combined with the NanoCell filter to correct colors. Prices start from BRL 5800 for 55 inches and BRL 7800 for 65 inches.
- QNED80 55″: BRL 5,799
- QNED80 65″: BRL 7,799
- QNED80 75″: Price not informed
- QNED80 86″: Price not informed
2022 OLED TVs
In 2022, LG OLED TVs received the new EVO panel, which according to the manufacturer, has the ability to light up to 20% more, compared to other OLED panels found in previous models. In addition, OLED started to compose a new size, 42 inches. As for greater lighting, we will test to see if this evolution really exists.
The LG C2 becomes the entry model in 2022. We will not have the A2 model in 2022. So the C2 is now the basis of OLED models. It has 6 different sizes, starting from the new 42 inches, reaching up to 83 inches. It has G-Sync and FreeSync technology. It has 120Hz frequency, 4 HDMI 2.1 ports. Prices start from 8 thousand reais and can reach 48 thousand in the 83-inch model.
- LG C2 42″: BRL 7,999
- LG C2 48″: BRL 8,999
- LG C2 55″: BRL 9,499
- LG C2 65″: BRL 15,999
- LG C2 77″: BRL 24,999
- LG C2 83″: BRL 47,999
The LG G2 is the best model from LG. It has only one size, 65 inches, with a price of 19 thousand reais. It has G-Sync and FreeSync, 120Hz, 4 HDMI 2.1 ports. The basic difference between the two is the shape of the back of the TV, where the G2 is not as thin as a whole, however, it does not have that rear box where the components are attached as in the C2. This way, you can keep the TV closer to the wall. It even comes with its own stand to hang on the wall. This support is built into the TV, making it literally stick to the surface of your furniture. Also, the internal cooling capacity of this model is better, there are more cooling parts in this whole set.
The 2022 models bring news in terms of software, from now on WebOS will stop having a 3, 4 or 5 model and will be called WebOS 22, a number that will accompany the year. WebOS 22 has news, from now on you will be able to create users, profiles. Basically it’s the same as Netflix, you can create user profiles, the technology will indicate programs and series to watch according to your tastes. You can create profile for kids and everything else.
Also, the image enhancement layer has been improved. While in previous versions the system captured texts and faces to improve the image, now in 2022 the background images and backgrounds will also undergo analysis and improvement in real time. For this, LG used the new generation of processors, the 5th generation Alpha 7 and Alpha 9.
In games, GeForce NOW technology is present in 2022 models. They can already be used in new TVs. LG said it still has no information on whether 2021 or earlier models will receive game apps. Speaking of apps, Xbox Cloud Gaming is not yet available, however, it was passed on that LG is working on it, we will probably also have the platform, but I don’t think that in the 2022 models and yes, only in the 2023 models, but this is a my opinion.
