LG has announced pricing and release plans for part of its 2019 OLED TV series, which essentially reflect the company's playbook from last year. These are some of the best TVs that you can buy. LG will continue to offer these prices as a price.
The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) TV sets will ship in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and the 55-inch E9 will be available later in May and June. This year's update of LG's "wallpaper" TVs, which will be available in sizes 65 and 75 inches, will be released in June.
(If you wondered, no, there is still no fixed price or release date for the awesome rollable TV.)
LG's TV branding can be quite confusing, but all these TVs basically have the same Display quality and the latest features the company first announced at CES include AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, enhanced image processing, and more. LG claims it's the only major TV maker to offer both Alexa and Google Assistant directly, while other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers that you already own.
The TVs also have HDMI 2.1
But they differ in the environment of the screen. The E9 series has glass on all four sides, most clearly on the bottom. The C9 is not that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series brings the same display in an almost incredibly thin design.
LG has announced that only the 2019 TVs will receive the AirPlay 2 functionality. other TV manufacturers, including Samsung and Vizio, are adding their useful features to their older devices. It would be nice if the company reconsidered that, but I have no hope.
The prices and release months for the LG OLED ThinQ C9, E9 and W9 TVs are listed below. I would advise against buying them soon after the launch, as LG's OLEDs will tend to experience heavy haircuts towards the end of the year.
