LG’s latest 8K TVs also feature a new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. The company informed that these TVs deliver optimized picture and sound quality for all types of content through AI-based 8K upscaling.

It continued, “The α9 Gen 3 processor’s AI Picture Pro is capable of recognizing faces and text on screen, fine-tuning and sharpening each to produce more natural skin tones, well-defined facial features and clearer, more readable characters. What’s more, Auto Genre Selection recognises the type of content being watched and automatically applies the ideal picture settings, guaranteeing the best image quality among four genres: movie, sports, standard and animation.”

The new models offer the capability to play native 8K content thanks to support of the widest selection of 8K content sources from HDMI and USB digital inputs, including codecs such as HEVC, VP9 and AV1.
