LG NanoCell 4K & 8K TVs for 2020 Now Selling

The Pinnacle of LCD Technology

LG Electronics USA has released pricing and availability for their new 2020 LG NanoCell TV lineup. There are ten 4K models from 49- to 86-inches and two 8K models in 65- or 75-inch screen sizes with AI-based picture quality and audio processing. Pricing starts at $599 to $3,299 for the 4K TVs or $3,499 to $4,999 for the 8K TVs.

Representing the pinnacle of LCD technology, LG’s NanoCell TVs are priced more reasonably and not quite as thin as LG’s top-of-the-line OLED TVs. Although a step-down in performance, NanoCell TVs are said to deliver stunning color reproduction by using a layer of one-nanometer sized particles that filter out impurities resulting in natural, lifelike color, which remain more accurate, even at wide viewing angles. 

What is NanoCell Technology?

The 12 models are divided into four series named Nano81, Nano85, Nano90 and Nano99 (8K). As the numbers increase, so do the features, specifications and display quality. The 2020 NanoCell 4K TV models (except Nano81) feature the α (Alpha) 7 Gen 3 Intelligent Processor to deliver a spectacular viewing and sound experience regardless of the original source. The Nano99 8K models feature the α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor 8K, the same processor used in LG’s critically-acclaimed 2020 OLED TVs, which uses deep learning technology to deliver an optimized 8K viewing experience.

LG NanoCell 8K TV

LG’s 2020 8K NanoCell TVs exceed the industry requirements for 8K Ultra HD TVs as defined by the Consumer Technology Association, making them among the first 8K models qualified to use the CTA 8K Ultra HD logo joining LG’s 2020 ZX series of 8K OLED TVs.

Picture quality is further improved on the Nano90 and Nano99 series by implementing Full Array Local Dimming to divide the backlighting into smaller blocks, for more precise control, to improve black levels and overall contrast.

LG’s 2020 NanoCell TVs support all major HDR formats, including Dolby Vision*, HDR 10 and HLG as well as Dolby Atmos*, for a great cinematic experience in the home. Other technologies designed to improve the viewing experience of movies, sports and games include the UHD Alliance’s Filmmaker Mode™ and the HDR Gaming Interest Group’s (HGiG) HDR gaming profile enabling the TV to render images the way they were intended to be seen by the creator. LG NanoCell TVs also support game play with auto low-latency mode (ALLM) on the Nano99 and Nano91 series and variable refresh rate (VRR) on the Nano90 and Nano85 series, for smooth action.

*Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos are not supported on the Nano 81 series (HDR10 and HLG only)
