LG have unveiled the highly anticipated LG C3 OLED TV. Let's see what we know so far.

Last Updated on

It’s official! Our experts at PC Guide can confirm that we will see the release of the new LG C3 TV this year. Set to join the rest of the LG C-series clan, the new LG C3 TV, unsurprisingly, will be decked out with a fair few improvements compared to its predecessor the LG C2.

The LG C3 OLED TV is one of the most anticipated TVs of 2023. It has the potential to be the best TV of the year. Those lucky few who have already had a hands-on experience with the TV have claimed improvements to its brightness.

But, before we speak too soon, some have already suggested that this new generation LG C-series TV doesn’t offer enough updates to make an upgrade from the LG C2 worth it. Let’s look into the new LG C3 TV in further detail. Keep on reading.

LG C3 TV Expected Release Date and Price

It is rumored that the LG C3 OLED TV will be released in Q1 of this year. Some have even suggested that we will see it hit the shelves in April 2023. Bear in mind these are only rumors and we are yet to hear directly from LG on when these TVs will become available.

When it comes to price, we again can only speculate. Back in the day, the LG C2 OLED TVs were launched at a price between $5,499 to $1,399 for the 83″ and 42″ TVs, respectively. Since their release, these TVs have dropped in price even on the LG site. So it would be no surprise to us if the new LG C3s are set to launch at this similar price point too.

LG C3 TV Features and Performance

Expect to see new refinements such as a new Alpha A9 Gen 6 processor. The new algorithm within this processor will increase the perceived brightness of the LG C3 TV. A feature that many testers have already raved about at the launch event.

The technology works by recognizing which part of an image is the focal point and which part is the background. The algorithm can then cleverly increase the brightness on the main part of the image making the entire image seem brighter – pretty amazing really.

Another new feature to be introduced on LG’s new OLED TVs is the upgraded WebOS 23 smart feature. According to those who had the opportunity to try it, they claim there are no major upgrades to the system. However, there are a fair few new features which may interest you.

One of the new smart features involves AI picture quality adjustment. The Personalized Picture Wizard will ask you a series of questions whilst you look at various images of differing brightness, saturation, and contrast. The AI will then analyze your choices, creating the perfect picture settings to maximize your comfort.

LG C3 TV Design

The LG C3 OLED TV features a similar design to the LG C2. It will feature a slim shape, built from a lightweight composite fiber. Thanks to its weight, one person would definitely be able to set up this device alone.

Wondering what input and outputs will be on this TV? Well, according to LG the new LG C3 will have four ALLM HDMI 2.1 ports. This is the same as the LG C2 so there is no upgrade here. Nonetheless, it still makes these LG TVs great for gaming.

In terms of screen size, we definitely expect to see a 55″ and 65″ model as they were present at the LG launch event. Other sizes that could be available are 77″, 83″, and 48″.

What is the difference between the LG C series and G series?

The LG C-series and LG G-series are a range of OLED TVs offered by LG. Generally, the LG C-series offers more basic features and functionalities compared to the LG G-series models. With that being said, the LG C-series is still a premium TV. The LG G-series, however, offers more advanced image and sound technology and an overall more premium design.

A key difference between both models is that the LG C-series is at a more affordable price point compared to the LG G-series. For example, the LG C1 55″ TV is set at $1,499. Whereas the LG G1 55″ is priced at $1,999.

Summary

So the new LG C3 OLED TV is coming out this year. Will you be making a purchase? Here at PC Guide, we are looking forward to this product hitting the market and seeing how it compares to the previous model, the LG C2.
