LG is now selling its NanoCell TVs, which use a filter of nanometer-sized particles to produce lifelike color accuracy. The TVs, which start at $600 and sell in 4K and 8K varieties, are compatible with Google Assistant, Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Apple AirPlay 2.
But LG hasn’t released its full NanoCell lineup just yet. Just a handful of the 4K models are available today, with the rest of the 4K line slated for release before September, and 8K models scheduled to roll out in May and June. LG’s NanoCell TVs come in a variety of sizes, with smaller 4K models starting at $600 and larger 8K models starting at $5,000.
Okay, but what the hell is a NanoCell? According to LG, NanoCell TVs use a thin particle filter to soak up unwanted light wavelengths and “enhance the purity of the red and green colors displayed on the screen.” NanoCell filters may be similar to polarization filters, which also filter out select light wavelengths and allow you to perceive some colors with more vibrance. Either way, NanoCell tech supports wide viewing angles and is accompanied by UHD and AI-powered image enhancement on LG’s new TVs.
Along with its NanoCell technology, LG is implementing full smart home support in its new TVs. The NanoCell line supports Google Assistant, Google Home, Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Apple AirPlay 2 (for casting video directly from your iOS or macOS device).
NanoCell TVs also feature the webOS Smart TV platform, which lets you access streaming apps directly from your TV. And thanks to the LG Magic Remote, you can use voice controls and gestures to navigate shows.
LG’s 4K UHD NanoCell TVs are a tempting offer, as they start at just $600 and contain technology that outclasses similarly-priced products. Again, LG will release its full NanoCell 4K line by September, with 8K models hitting shelves in May and June.
