It will come with four generations of OLED TVs being announced by LG this year, including the 4K follow-ups to last year's range, with the C9, E9, and the wallpaper W9. For example, by pressing the Amazon Prime Video button on the Magic Remote, users can manage smart home devices, ask questions and access tens of thousands of skills and even set up their ideal Alexa Routine complete with wake-up call, traffic information and favorite TV channel switching all with their voice.

LG's new Alpha 9 processor includes ThinQ AI, a new system that will automatically adjust brightness and audio based on content and environment. The new range of LCD TVs will come under the name of NanoCell TV after the name of NanoCell technology which will be used to power the TVs.

In addition to content source detection, the new processor finely adjusts the tone mapping curve in accordance with ambient conditions to offer optimized screen brightness, leveraging its ability to understand how the human eye perceives images in different lighting.
