Many of us are interested in the LG C2 range for gaming, but it’s important to remember that the LG G2 TVs are also coming out, and they’re some of the best we’ve seen so far.

Here, you can find out everything you need to know about it, like when you might be able to get it.

LG G2 TVs Release Date

We’ve heard that the LG G2 TVs might come out in the spring of 2022, but a firm release date hasn’t been given yet.

A recent article on the German website AreaDVD suggests that the movie may come out in March or April, at least in Europe. We’ll have to wait for confirmation, though.

A recent article on Techradar also says that the 65-inch and 77-inch LG G2 models will come out in March and the 55-inch and 83-inch models will come out in April.

If that seems like a long time to wait, don’t worry, because it looks like the payoff will be worth it.

LG G2 TV Price

  • LG G2 55″ (OLED55G2PUA) – $2,199
  • LG G2 65″ (OLED65G2PUA) – $2,999
  • LG G2 77″ (OLED77G2PUA) – $3,999
  • LG G2 83″ (OLED83G2PUA) – $6,499

As for European prices, we have AreaDVD to go on, which has listed the pricing on their site.

    • LG G2 83″: 8,999 Euro
    • LG G2 77″: 5,999 Euro
    • LG G2 65″: 3,599 Euro
    • LG G2 55″: 2,499 Euro

As expected, the G2 series looks to be a lot more expensive than the C2 series, which starts at about $1,399 for a 42″ model.

This year, we’re looking forward to big things from LG, and we think they’ll be worth the wait.

LG G2 TVs Specs

So as expected, this TV packs a bit of punch and a few subtle, but welcome design changes on its previous iteration, the G1 series.

Let’s break it down.

LG G2 TV Sizes

LG G2 TVs will be available in 55, 65, 77, 83, and 97-inch sizes. This time, it has two bigger models that may be out of reach for most people but should be great for people who want an alternative to a projector.

It also has LG’s Gallery design, which lets you hang it on the wall in a very orderly way. So, if you don’t want to mount it to the wall, it looks like you don’t need the feet.

This time around, the bezels are slightly thinner, which is a design choice we’re also seeing in some of the best upcoming OLED gaming monitors.

LG G2 TV Screen Specs

We don’t know for sure how bright it will be, but we think it will be somewhere around 1000 nits.

Compared to the QD-OLED panels in Samsung’s upcoming TVs and the Sony Bravia XR A95K, for example, it may not shine as brightly, but we still think it’s very bright.

The brightness is helpful if this TV is on during the day or in a room with a lot of light, but it also lets you see more color and contrast, so it’s a win-win.

We should also mention that this is an HDMI 2.1 TV that supports 120Hz/4K gaming. This makes it a strong candidate for the best TV for PS5 or Xbox Series X.

LG G2 TV Processor

So the most important thing about this is that it has the newest Alpha 9 Gen 4 processor. This processor improves the image in a few ways so that you can get the most out of the content.

Upscaling, which is now more efficient, and a new feature called Dynamic Tone-mapping, which works to improve the detail you see on screen, are the main things that have changed.

The sound quality has also been improved, and this TV can now make 7.1.2 virtual surround sound.

The LG 65G2 is the only 4K TV you’ll ever need to buy

Right now, it’s about as easy to find a good Ultra HD TV as it is to get a former football player to appear in a gambling ad. Pay enough money, and you’ll find a lot of people who want to buy it. Even though there are a lot of cheap, decent-sized TVs on the market today, there is still a big difference between a regular 4K TV and one made by LG. That’s because the South Korean tech giant was one of the first to use OLED screens with such high resolution. But the main reason is that everyone else is still trying to catch up.

We’ve been testing the brand-new LG G2 for two weeks now, and the first time we turned it on, our jaws still hit the floor. It might only be a small technical improvement and a change in design compared to 2020’s C series, but our time with this great-looking display has shown us that the champion isn’t going to give up its title any time soon. Whether we’re watching Breaking Bad for the third time, playing Call of Duty Warzone with King Kong and the boys, or just mindlessly soaking up the rays from Selling Sunset on Netflix, the G2 makes everything look unbelievably good. The world of high-end TVs is full of great models, but here’s why we think the LG 65G2 is the best of them all.

LG’s OLED revolution: now cooler than ever

It shouldn’t be a surprise that a TV that costs more than £6,000 is a real beauty, but there’s a lot more to what we mean when we say, “Shows look good.” Go buy.” The C series was praised for its great clarity and ability to upscale all of your standard content to a higher resolution. The G2 takes all of that one step further with a new Evo OLED panel that makes the display brighter while staying cool. What difference does it make in how hot or cold your TV is? Well, it lets the smart technology behind the scenes put as much power as possible into making sure everything you watch looks great, instead of holding back to keep the screen from getting too hot.

Most of the air-cooling ability comes from a change to a two-layer design, which makes this new model look (we’ll be nice) chunkier than the C2. It’s important because it lets more airflow through and lets a brand-new processor power this new type of OLED beast.

The image was brighter, so we could see what Jon Snow was doing in the “Long Night” episode near the end of Game of Thrones. Everything looked a step better without being too saturated, even under the bright lights at Anfield or in Disney’s “Turning Red,” which is a visual acid trip. Blacks stay black, and colors jump off the screen. This gives movies and TV shows depth and weight that we couldn’t see on our old TV or any other LG we’ve tried.

A true home-cinema experience

If you wanted to make your home theatre, you might have looked into a high-end projector for a wider image and a soundbar to make up for bad audio, but the G2 is so good that it can give you a much more immersive experience than TVs twice its size that isn’t as good. After nervously hanging our 65-inch tester unit on the wall, our small living room became a better, more comfortable version of our local multiplex, minus the overpriced popcorn and grumpy ticket staff. This slightly bigger design still looks great, but its thicker bezel and bigger-than-life screen make it hard to miss.

When you turn it on, you’ll see LG’s simple user interface. This made it easy for us to navigate all the usual pre-installed apps (like Netflix, Sky, BT Sports, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+, to name a few), and we spent a lot of time playing around with the many image settings. Since Tom Cruise might not like it if you ruined Tropic Thunder by messing with your TV’s refresh rate, you can make fine-tuning easier by choosing from several pre-set modes that soften the sharpness for TV shows and dial-up saturation for sports. They make whatever you’re watching look better and take the guesswork out of setting it up.

As for music lovers, Even though Dolby Atmos technology is built-in, you’ll still want to buy a good soundbar to get the most out of your shows. Bass is aggressive and hits harder than Mike Tyson, but we thought a little more time could have been spent on the high end, especially if you’re switching between explosions and whispered dialogue like in any PS5 blockbuster.

To do this, the G2 has four HDMI 2.1 ports that are ready to work with next-generation game consoles in Ultra HD at up to 120 frames per second. The sun-drenched beaches in Horizon: Forbidden West was really beautiful, and the low latency meant that we couldn’t blame our 87th death on Elden Ring on a slow controller.

LG G2 65-inch OLED 4K TV verdict

We can’t say enough about how great LG’s G2 TV is and how much it deserves its high price. People who want to upgrade their home theatre but don’t have enough money to buy something ridiculously expensive aren’t likely to find anything better this year. Even though Samsung is about to make its first TV with an OLED screen in the next few weeks.

LG has made sure that the G2 is one of 2022’s best TVs for picture quality and color accuracy. It has become the TV brand of choice for people who like to watch movies at home. We were blown away by how clear and good everything was, whether it was Arsenal’s late fall from grace in the fight for the top four in the Premier League, Timothée Chalamet’s bouncing mop in Dune, or yet another nightclub drama on Made in Chelsea. If you only buy one TV this decade, buy a G2.

Hands-on: LG G2 and C2 OLED TV review

Even though there are reasons to choose a competitor, most people have been buying LG’s OLEDs as their high-end TV of choice for years. This means that each year’s new models are highly anticipated, and LG is under a lot of pressure to get things right yet again.

In 2022, LG will face its biggest problem to date. Not only does it have to compete with the usual set of OLED and QLED TVs, but Sony and Samsung are about to release QD-OLED TVs, which are a whole new type of TV.

lg g2

So how does LG plan to deal with this problem? By making the C2 and G2 models brighter than ever, adding a new picture and sound features thanks to a faster processor, and putting more emphasis on how good they are for gaming.

Unfortunately, the C2 and G2 of 2022 seem to cost more than their 2021 counterparts. Are the improvements worth the higher prices, and will they keep LG ahead of the competition? Here are our first thoughts, based on a recent hands-on experience.

LG G2 and C2 prices

Even though we don’t have prices for all models in all regions yet, it’s clear that, at least in the UK, prices for the C2’s core sizes (48-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch) are higher than they were last year’s C1.

In the US, prices for these sizes are the same as they were last year, and the prices we know so far for the very large C2s and G2s are less than what they will be in 2021.

Here is a table with all of the C2 and G2 prices we know so far, along with the C1 and G1 prices from last year so you can see how they compare.

LG C2 and G2 prices versus C1 and G1
C2 (2022) C1 (2021) G2 (2022) G1 (2021)
42-inch £1399 / $1400 / AU$TBC No such model No such model No such model
48-inch £1399 / $1500 / AU$TBC £1299 / $1500 / AU$2999 No such model No such model
55-inch £1900 / $1800 / AU$TBC £1699 / $1800 / AU$3499 £2400 / $2200 / AU$TBC £1999 / $2200 / AU$3799
65-inch £2700 / $2500 / AU$TBC £2499 / $2500 / AU$4699 £3300 / $3200 / AU$TBC £2999 / $3000 / AU$5299
77-inch £3500 / $3500 / AU$TBC £3999 / $3800 / AU$8999 £4500 / $4200 / AU$TBC £4799 / $4500 / AU$9999
83-inch £5500 / $5500 / AU$TBC £TBC / $6000 / AU$12599 £6500 / $6500 / AU$TBC No such model
97-inch No such model No such model £TBC / $TBC / AU$TBC No such model

You’ll also notice from the above table that LG is introducing new sizes for 2022: there’s now a 42-inch C2 and a 97-inch G2. You will also this year be able to buy a G2 at 83 inches – in 2021 it was only the C model that was available in that size.

Design

Since the C9 came out in 2019, LG’s C-series OLEDs haven’t changed much in how they look, so it’s good to see at least a few changes for the C2. Most welcome is the change from an elegant but very wide and low stand to a pedestal that is much narrower (good for putting on furniture) and a little taller (good for leaving room for a soundbar).

Aside from the stand, the design is mostly the same as before, though the depth and width have been reduced by a couple of millimeters. This is because the bezels are even thinner than before.

The 42-inch C2 is the only one that doesn’t look like its bigger brothers. Most notably, this model has two feet instead of a central pedestal, and the plastic casework attached to the back panel covers a much larger area and has a hole for all the connections.

LG’s G series has always been made to look like a picture frame (the “G” stands for “Gallery”), and the super-slim chassis and ultra-thin bezels don’t give the company much room for aesthetic improvement. Still, the G2 looks a little different from the G1 because the bezels are even thinner and the edges are no longer chamfered at 45 degrees but are now straight.

As with the G1, the G2 comes with a flush wall mount instead of a stand. This will continue to be a problem for people who want LG’s best picture but don’t want to or can’t mount their TV on the wall. There is, of course, a stand that you can buy separately, and thankfully it is a narrow, elegant “alpine” pedestal stand instead of the awkward, wide-set feet that came with previous G-series models.

LG has also been working hard to lose weight, and the C2 and G2 are both a lot lighter than their 2021 counterparts. The C2 weighs only 16.5kg with its stand, which is about half the weight of the C1. During the hands-on session, we had to move the 77-inch C2 and were surprised to find that, at 24.1kg, it’s not too hard for one person to lift. However, it’s still a big and expensive item, so it’s probably best to get some help if you have to move one by yourself.

Features

LG only put its brighter OLED Evo technology on the G1 TV when it came out last year. But this year, both the G2 and the C2 will be called OLED Evo models. Before you assume that the C- and G-series pictures are the same again, as they were before 2021, you should know that the G2 has better heat dissipation technology that lets it go even brighter than the C2.

In LG-speak, the C2 has Brightness Booster and the G2 has Brightness Booster Max. LG says that this makes the C2 20% brighter than the lower-end B2 and A2 models, which don’t seem to be any brighter than last year’s B1 and A1, while the G2 is 30% brighter than those same models. If you think it would be more helpful to know how much brighter the C2 and G2 are than the C1 and G1, we agree, but LG wasn’t willing to give us those numbers. However, during the demo session, we were able to compare the C2 and G2 with a C1, and you can read what we thought about that below.

In short, though, if you want LG’s best picture quality in 2022, you’ll (at least in theory) have to buy the more expensive and specialized G2, which will disappoint some people.

Another thing to note about brightness is that even though the 42-inch and 48-inch C2s are OLED Evo models, they won’t get as bright as their bigger brothers and sisters. LG says that this has to do with the number of pixels. Because the pixels are so close together, you can’t give them as much power.

When it comes to the overall features, the C2 and the G2 are pretty much the same, except for the brightness. Both have the new Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor that runs them. This doesn’t sound like a big improvement over last year’s Alpha 9 Gen 4, but the AI upscaling has been changed to make it more efficient. One step that could add unwanted artifacts has been taken out, and a new Dynamic Tone-mapping Pro Algorithm will divide the screen into 10 times more discrete areas for more precise enhancement.

LG says that the new Dynamic Vivid Mode for Object Background Enhancement will make it easier to tell the difference between the foreground and background by analyzing them separately. This will create a greater depth of field, LG says.

The new processor also improves the sound quality. Instead of 5.1.2 virtual channels, soundtracks can now be mixed into 7.1.2 channels.

Support for Dolby’s new Dolby Vision with Precision Detail format is another very interesting thing that the Alpha 9 Gen 5 seems to be able to do. This is a further development of Dolby Vision IQ, but unlike IQ, which is meant to adjust brightness and contrast to give a more accurate picture in all lighting conditions, Precision Detail is said to actively change the light levels of all parts of the picture to improve contrast, sharpness, and detail.

Dolby Vision with Precision Detail can be added to any existing Dolby Vision content. It will be interesting to see how this new format works since it’s hard to see how this kind of post-processing doesn’t make the picture less accurate.

Dolby Vision IQ and regular Dolby Vision are also supported, in case of Dolby Vision with Precision Detail turn out to be a disappointment. Both HDR10 and HLG are also good. HDR10+ is, as expected, not there.

LG hasn’t changed much when it comes to games, mostly because it hasn’t had to. Both the C2 and the G2 still have four HDMI 2.1 ports, but this year they have been upgraded from 40gbps to 48gbps. Most models from other brands still only have two. In reality, this doesn’t make much of a difference right now because no commercially available source can output at the maximum 48gbps, but it doesn’t hurt to plan for the future.
These HDMI 2.1 ports do, of course, support 4K/120 gaming, VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), and ALLM (Audio Lossless Multichannel) (Auto Low Latency Mode). As before, the new C2 and G2 will support HGiG for better HDR accuracy in games, and Xbox Series X/S gamers can use the Dolby Vision Game mode.

LG has made some small changes to its Game Optimiser menu for 2022. This makes it easier to access game-specific settings and adds a sports game preset to the four genres presets that were already there. Both models will also have a new mode called “Dark Room,” which will reduce eye strain when playing in low light by turning down the brightness without sacrificing contrast.

In terms of menus, LG’s 2022 TVs come with a new operating system called webOS 22. Truth be told, it doesn’t seem to be much different from webOS 6.0, which moved from a pop-up row of options to a full-screen interface. However, LG has tried to improve personalization and recommendations, especially by adding separate user profiles.

LG has also taken a page from Samsung’s book by adding an “Always Ready” mode that can use the screen to show the time, the weather, art, personal photos, or animations when the phone would normally be in standby mode. Both the C2 and the G2 have far-field microphones built into their frames. This lets them respond to voice commands even when they are in standby mode, so you can check the weather without turning on your TV.
