The new LG Z9, will be running on the new alpha9 Gen 2 CPU like the other top of the line new 2019 4K OLED TVs.

It's the next generation of the technology sitting at heart of both its OLED and LED-backlit LCD TVs, and it's one that will also work with LG's ThinQ AI platform, a technology that works with voice recognition across webOS and Google Assistant to control parts of the smart home and answer questions. The new LG Z9 will be one of the stars at the CES 2019, but 8K TVs will not be relevant for consumers for years to come. The TV line-up is said to be revealed at CES 2019 along with the CineBeam Projector. The OLED Z9, W9, E9 and C9 and the LCD SM9X and SM8X. There's also support for variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM), which should benefit gamers.

What is LG's new NanoCell technology?

Another new feature on the TVs is the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports - fitted to all 2019 OLED models and selected NanoCell TVs. The result will be a smoother and clearer motion for better rendering of fast-action content when watching sports and action movies. This will allow the TVs to be connected to audio equipment without any degradation in audio quality, thanks to support for the highest quality audio formats available.

While the addition of HDMI 2.1 has huge benefits, users will need new cables to take advantage of all the new additions.

LG Electronics is adding support for Amazon's Alexa digital assistant to its latest TVs. While you might be thinking, "didn't LG's TVs already support Alexa", then technically you're right.

By using its new algorithm and AI, LG says its new TVs will offer enhanced picture and sound by analyzing source content as well as optimized content by recognizing ambient conditions. This year, the brand is going to new heights with its new range of LG 2019 ThinQ AI 8K OLED TVs. 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.
