OLED televisions are not only particularly suitable for home movie enjoyment, but also offer some advantages for gamers. LG has now launched a new model that could be perfect for playing with the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X. GIGA has all the details for you.
LG CX48: that's what makes the new OLED television so special
LG already presented its at this year's CES new OLED TV for gamers officially before, now the start of sales is within reach. The first devices should be available at the end of the month and will be sold in the United States for around $ 1,500 – and should be worth a look, especially for passionate gamers.
Because if you take a look at the technical data, you will quickly notice that the device has some of the most important gaming features on board. The 48-inch TV has a 4K resolution, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and of course HDR. The model also supports VRR technologies such as Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. With current PCs and also with PS5 and Xbox Series X, these ensure that image tearing is prevented.
Thanks to the "Auto Low Latency" mode (ALLM for short), your entries on the controller or via mouse and keyboard should be displayed on the screen in the shortest possible time. You don't have to worry about unsightly image streaks (ghosting) during fast movements either. Due to the built-in OLED panel, the response times of the individual pixels are a brisk millisecond – so the picture remains crisp even in fast situations and heated battles.
LCD or OLED – that is the question! In the video we explain what is the better choice for you:
New OLED TV from LG: Not only interesting for gamers
But movie lovers also get their money's worth with the television. The OLED panel provides extremely strong contrasts, thanks to Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos, the image and sound should also be very good. Incidentally, one should not forget that LG has one of the best and most powerful operating systems for smart TVs with webOS. Operation is also very catchy thanks to Magic Remote or the use of voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
With the new LG CX48, LG seems to offer a damn good and compact OLED television at a solid price. This smart TV should be kept on the screen.
