All models, on the other hand, are capable of playing 8K content natively through their HDMI or USB inputs, in addition to digital sources, at up to 60 frames per second; televisions are also equipped with a new artificial intelligence processor – the third generation Alpha 9 – which, according to LG, makes the upscaling 8K content with much more precision and clarity with a little help from machine learning.

In addition, as stated above, all TVs in the new line have support for HomeKit and AirPlay 2; with that, you can control the devices through the app House (or by Crab) and stream content from your iPhone / iPad / Mac directly to TVs with total ease.

There is still no information on price or availability of the new TVs, but LG will certainly talk about it during CES 2020, where the beauties will be on display. Let’s wait.
