This story is a part of CES, the place CNET covers the most recent information on essentially the most unbelievable tech coming quickly.

OLED TVs have higher image high quality than the extra frequent and less-expensive LCD-based TVs, however they’re additionally out there in fewer totally different sizes. However at CES 2022, LG is closing the dimensions hole and hoping to broaden OLED’s attraction: The large 97-inch and comparatively diminutive 42-inch variations signify the most important and smallest OLEDs but.

Besting the earlier OLED measurement champion, an 88-inch bruiser with 8K decision that is been on sale since 2019, the 97-inch OLED is a sight to behold. I checked it out at LG’s pre-CES showcase in New Jersey and got here away satisfied as ever that larger TVs are higher — and primarily based on my fast observations, it is completely detailed although it has “solely” 4K decision.

Feast your eyes on the biggest OLED TV yet: LG’s all-new…


This behemoth is a member of LG’s G2 series, which also includes sizes from 55 to 83 inches. As such, it’s also thinner and more wall-mountable than the step-down C2 models LG introduced — as well as being 20% brighter, according to LG. If you’re keeping track, the biggest LCD-based models currently available top out at 98 inches.

LG also had a 42-inch screen on display, which one-ups (one-downs?) existing 48-inch models as the smallest yet. LG touted it as ideal for gamers and displayed it alongside the UltraGear gaming speaker, a setup that would put just about any gaming monitor to shame. Although the 42-inch OLED is a member of the C2 series it lacks the evo panel found on 55-inch and larger versions. Otherwise it’s the same, complete with best-in-class input features, including VRR and 4K/120Hz capability.

LG did not announce pricing for any of its 2022 TVs yet, leaving people like me to speculate freely. The 88-inch 8K model sells for about $30,000 now, so I’d expect the 97-inch version to cost at least $40,000 despite its lower resolution. The 48-inch is currently selling for $1,100, so I expect 2022 holiday pricing for the 42-incher to be about $1,000.
