LG 55SK9000 LED LCD 4K TV Preview
It's all about the viewing angles
With all the talk surrounding LG's OLED line-up, it's easy to forget that they also make LCD TVs and this year's Super UHD line-up looks strong. The mid-range SK9000 comes in two screen sizes, the 55-inch 55SK9000 and the 65-inch 65SK9000.
This LCD TV uses edge LED backlighting and a NanoCell IPS panel which promises better colours and a wider viewing angle. The SK9000 also uses the A7 processor found on the B7 OLED TV. This is based on the processor from last year (although it wasn't named as such at that point) but gains the Technicolor HDR standard which is added to the existing support for Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR10.
Also new for 2018 is the AutoCal CalMAN calibration software by SpectraCal which should greatly aid the speed and accuracy of the setup possible with the set in the home. This has been combined with the ThinQ AI system which enables voice control integration with Google, Siri and Alexa allowing the 55SK9000 to become part of a network of voice controlled, interconnected items.
In physical terms, the SK9000 also looks very similar to both the higher-end SK9500 and the B7 a curved stand, silver finish and a slimline and elegant design. The SK9000 delivers in audio terms and boasts on-board support for Dolby Atmos.
