The 2023 OLED TV series is powered by LG Alpha9 Gen 6 processor for optimised picture and sound quality. LG said the processor used in the 2023 OLED TVs utilises its Al-assisted Deep Learning tech to ensure outstanding picture and sound quality. For visuals, there is an AI Picture Pro feature that is said to improve upscaling for better clarity and enhanced dynamic tone mapping. LG said its AI Picture Pro integrates a picture processing technology that detects and refines important objects, such as people's faces, to give them a more lifelike HDR quality. For audio, the processor supports virtual 9.1.2 channel surround sound from a built-in speaker system powered by LG AI Sound Pro technology.
The 2023 OLED TVs are powered by a new version of LG webOS, which brings redesigned user interface (UI) with new home screen, quick cards, and personalised content recommendations based on users viewing history. The televisions support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and IMAX-enhanced powered by DTS:X.
As for the gaming features, the TVs come loaded with LG’s Game Optimizer tool that allows users to quickly select and switch between gaming-specific features. Besides, the OLED TVs boast a 0.1 millisecond response time, low input lag with up to four HDMI2.1a and compliant ports. The TVs also support G-SYNC Compatible, FreeSync Premium and variable refresh rate (VRR) that are accessible from the Game Optimizer tool.
