At the CES event in January 2024, LG announced its release plans for the continuation of the LG TV OLED lineup. The newest variations of the LG B, C, G, and M TV series are all set to launch this year, and with such successes from their predecessors’ superior OLED performance, we wanted to find out everything about LG’s newest OLED TVs. The highly acclaimed LG OLED M3, released last year, has left a lot for the LG M4 to live up to in the premium TV market. This is why, in this article, we discuss all that we’ve heard about the LG M4, including specifications, potential upgrades, speculated release dates, and rumored pricing.

LG M4 – release date speculation

The LG M4 OLED TV’s release date is yet to be confirmed by LG, but we think we can hazard a guess as to when it may arrive. Informed predictions suggest a Q3 2024 release window. This timeline would place the M4’s debut slightly later than other LG OLED TVs slated for release this year, mirroring the staggered launch pattern observed with the M3 series.

Last year the M3 arrived in the US/UK in September. Initially, LG rolled out the 97-inch model, followed by the 83-inch and 77-inch versions. For the M4, the introduction of a 65-inch variant is particularly noteworthy, marking LG’s commitment to providing a range of options to suit different preferences and spaces.

Release date rumors

Although looking at past LG OLED TV models for clues about release date can be useful, its still just speculation and its important to remember that nothing is 100% accurate until LG makes an offical announcement.

LG OLED M4 – expected features

The M4 flagship model is setting a new benchmark for what’s possible in home entertainment, distinguished by its revolutionary approach to connectivity and unparalleled graphic performance. A standout feature that places the M4 in a league of its own is its wireless connectivity, a first from a major TV manufacturer.

This innovative feature allows for comprehensive HDMI devices like game consoles to be connected to a separate box, which can be situated up to 30 feet away. Then picture and audio transmission are sent wirelessly to the TV and TV’s built-in speakers without any loss in quality. This system necessitates only a power cable directly to the TV, promising a cleaner, wire-free living space.

Available in a variety of sizes including 65″, 77″, 83″, and the expansive 97″, the M4 caters to every viewer’s space and preference. At its core, the M4 is powered by the Alpha 11 AI processor chip, enhancing every aspect of the vibrant viewing experience from picture quality to faster processing speed. LG has created the M4 with Wowcast and Chromecast built-in, allowing the TV to connect to compatible LG soundbars and eliminating the use of cluttered connected cables. LG’s apparent AI upscaling is obvious in the 4x higher AI performance, utilizing features such as AI Sound Pro and the ingenious AI processor.

The screen itself boasts a 4K resolution on class-leading OLED TV Evo technology, enriched further by the inclusion of MLA (micro lens array) tech across all sizes except the 97-inch variant. This ensures that the M4 offers LG’s brightest OLED panel yet, with the first OLED TV with MLA, the LG G3, having delivered some of the best image qualities ever tested.

How much will the LG M4 cost?

LG’s official stance on M4 pricing remains unconfirmed, but a glance at the M3’s pricing strategy sheds light on what we might expect. The entry-level 77-inch M3 model set buyers back $5,000, which already carried a hefty $1,200 premium over the similarly sized, wired G3 model.

This pricing strategy hints that the flagship M4, despite introducing a smaller and presumably more affordable 65-inch option, will likely maintain a notable premium for its cutting-edge wireless video and sound capabilities into 2024.

Price points for the M3 were as follows:

  • 77-inch M3: $5,000
  • 83-inch M3: $8,000
  • 97-inch M3: $30,000

With the M4 series welcoming a 65-inch model into the smart TV platform, it’s reasonable to speculate an entry price point between $3,500 and $4,000. This move aims to make the innovative wireless OLED technology more accessible to a broader audience, without compromising the premium LG is known for.

Final words

For those who demand fluid motion and crisp visuals in every frame, the M4 doesn’t disappoint, offering a 144Hz refresh rate alongside an expected 0.1ms response time, making it perfect for gaming and high-action sequences. The M4’s gaming prowess is supported by three HDMI 2.1 ports, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) tech, and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), ensuring a gaming experience that’s not just immersive but also incredibly responsive.

The LG OLED M4 is more than just a television; it’s a comprehensive entertainment solution designed to meet the needs of the most discerning viewers and gamers. With its blend of innovative wireless technology, advanced display capabilities, and user-focused features, the M4 is poised to transform living rooms into hubs of cutting-edge entertainment leaving the user with an elevated sense of immersion.
