LG OLED C4 release date and price

The LG C4 OLED TV was first announced at CES 2024 in January of this year, and there’s not long to wait until you can get your hands on this impressive upgrade. Pre-order purchase started back on February 28th, and as mentioned above, the models started shipping on the 11th of March 2024, so they are now readily available from the LG website as well as local retailers. The TV will be available in a total of six sizes ranging from 42-inch all the way up to 83-inch. Prices begin at $1,499 and scale up to $5,399.99 with the largest of the lot expectedly carrying the highest sticker price.

The LG C4 is premium TV that appears to be perfect for gamers as well as avid movie buffs. It’s armed with a 4K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and Alpha a9 chip, which means it could be considered among the best TVs for PS5 and the best TVs for Xbox Series X if the series’ legacy is to be continued. It’s also AI-powered as it uses the α9 AI Processor 4K Gen7 chip as well as the likes of Amazon Alexa and Google for hands-free control.

Much focus has been placed on the AI hardware, which LG claims will provide a “truly unforgettable TV experience” which “automatically enhances picture quality” with presets for sports, movies, and terrestrial programming. In terms of gaming performance, this TV is about as feature-packed as you can get. It sports a 1ms response time and up to 144Hz when utilizing the “Game Optimizer”. There’s VRR as well as AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync with 0.1ms response time which effectively eradicates screen tearing and ghosting.

Connectivity options are also leading. There’s a total of four HDMI 2.1 ports so you can hook up both consoles, and your setup box as well as a dedicated audio Hi-Fi, too. There’s no shortage of features which means this gaming TV could provide a strong experience. we recommend pre ordering to avoid any potential disappointment. There’s no guarantee that the LG C4 stock available now will last out until the early March release window.

Is it worth upgrading to the LG C4?

If you’re upgrading from an older model, or if this is your first big OLED TV investment, then the LG C4 is definitely worth it. As a brand new top-of-the-range TV, that sports a new Alpha a9 processor, a whole host of features for gaming, as well as a stellar 4K resolution for streaming, the C4 stands as an investment that will last you for many years to come. The processor upgrade has another benefit aside from improved performance, in its ability to pair with compatible LG soundbars, and wireless, lossless Dolby Atmos audio.

Of course, it’s less worth it if you have one of the more recent OLED LG models, such as the C3, as the performance gap isn’t huge between some of the TVs from last year. We’ve also compared it to the latest Samsung and Sony TVs on the market, such as the Sony A95K and the Samsung S95D so you can get a feel for where the C4 is going to sit in the competitive OLED / QNED TV market.

Final thoughts

We’ve been following the release of the LG C4 since its unveiling at CES 2024. For more, we’re bringing you LG C4 vs LG G4 so you can make an informed choice for which display is right for your living room. The size and scale of the TVs mean neither is going to comfortably fit on a desk as the best gaming monitors do, so you’ll likely be looking at getting a wall mount here.

If you need assistance with the mounting of TV onto your chosen flat surface, you can likely add a handy wall mounting installation or TV stand setup service as part of your order. It’s worth noting that this might impact your order’s final price though.
