Also, LG in OLED and S series, will install the new Alpha 9 processor of the second generation. Although it is not worth paying special attention to processors in TVs that are much weaker than processors in modern phones, therefore, TV manufacturers do not indicate which processor is taken as the basis for manufacturing a processor to a TV.
In 2018, the marking is slightly changed, it will be the same for all televisions regardless of the region. In this regard, three letters in the marking (PUA, PLA, PLB, WNA) are added and they will denote the region for which the TV is released, the type of tuner and the change in design elements, for example, stands.
In the second half of 2018, not only PUA, but also SLC TV sets went on sale, TV sets with the designation S are offered in the UK and Singapore, and AUA in the USA, according to LG, are similar TV models.
