As with all OLED TVs, the C2 series uses self-emitting Organic LEDs (no blacklight required), which produce both light and color. 

EVO

LG OLED EVO technology is included in selected C2 series sets (Star Wars Special Edition included). EVO OLED panels deliver higher brightness while maintaining clarity and detail. Powered by LG’s (Alpha) 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor, Brightness Booster™ technology enables the TV to deliver enhanced brightness through improved heat dissipation and a more advanced algorithm.

webOS 

The LG C2 series OLED TVs come with webOS 22 (previously named version 6.0), a smart TV platform. webOS 22 offers new personalization options, including customizable user profiles that allow each member of a household to tailor their viewing experience and enjoy easier access to their preferred channels, apps, and content services.

WebOS 22 also provides NFC Magic Tap  (a simple way to mirror the screen from mobile to TV), Room To Room Share (allows cable or satellite content mirroring via Wi-Fi from one TV to another), and Always Ready (turns an LG TV into a media display when not in use). LG’s webOS 22 platform also includes updates to LG Channels with 350 free ad-supported channels.

HDR

LG’s C2 OLED TVs incorporate Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail. This is in addition to HDR10 and HLG. This variation of Dolby Vision reveals more detail in both bright and dark areas that may not have been noticeable previously. 

Gaming

LG OLED TVs are gaming-friendly. The C2 series offers a 0.1 millisecond response time, low input lag, and include up to four HDMI ports supporting multiple HDMI 2.1 features. Seamless cloud gaming is also available via  Google Stadia and GeForce NOW support.

The C2 also includes a Game Optimizer menu that allows switching between gaming features and presets. Dark Room Mode adjusts screen brightness for a better gaming experience with the lights off. The LG C2 is G-SYNC® compatible, FreeSync™ Premium, and supports variable refresh rate (VRR). Presets allow users to select game genres, including a sports mode.
