LG Announces Availability of 2018 Premium TV Lineup with ThinQ AI
Unveiled earlier this year at CES 2018, LG on Tuesday announced the official pricing and availability details for its 2018 lineup of LG OLED TVs with AI ThinQ and LG SUPER UHD TVs with AI ThinQ. In total, LG will launch nine new AI-enabled OLED TV models in 2018—including the W8, E8, C8, and B8 series—and seven new AI-enabled SUPER UHD TVs. The OLED models will range in size from 55 to 77 inches, while the SUPER UHD models will range from 49 to 75 inches.

Aside from various incremental annual improvements made to the TV technology, the new LG models feature the company’s ThinQ artificial intelligence—which stole the show for LG at CES 2018 earlier this year—as well as the new LG Alpha 9 intelligent processor. Beyond its integration into apps and entertainment features, the AI TVs use voice control (and Google Assistant) to turn the TV into a smart home hub.
