Differences between LG OLED WX vs LG OLED W9 TVs
Sizes of W series TVs, screens
TVs will be sold in two sizes with a diagonal of 65 and 77 inches. Nothing has changed, the screens will be produced at the same factory and on the same line as before, if LG has not made changes to the technology, then the screens are the same. RGBW matrix color depth 10 bits. The dimming technology has not changed, as it depends on the software, not the type of matrix. Yes, by design, a TV with an external control unit, a separate screen, a separate brain of the TV with connectors and speakers, are connected by a cable.
Supported OLEDWX Video Technology
Nothing has changed in 2020, except that smart scaling to 4K, AI 4K Upscaling is claimed, but it’s just advertising. The third-generation a9 processor. But unfortunately we do not know how it differs from the second generation processor. Technical specifications of LG processors are not disclosed.
AI features OLEDWX
In 2019, LG finalized the software and TVs will already be sold with active Alexa, Google, and even Apple Airplay2, Apple Homekit. AI Picture Pro is supported – intelligent image processing, although intelligence is highly questionable. Added Gallery mode, showing images from LG cloud storage. Finally, there will be a Home Dashboard, a panel for controlling various devices in the house through a TV. To solve all these new problems, LG modified the OS and now it is WebOS 5.0. Yes, they forgot to say about the built-in microphone in the TV, now you can control the TV without picking up the remote control.
Audio LG OLED WX
No major changes, although support for DTS codecs in 2020 is not indicated, this is either an LG typo or a decision has been made not to support DTS codecs. WiSA wireless speakers are now built-in, but for activation you need to buy an access key additionally.
Game Modes and Connectors
In 2019, in TVs, although HDMI ports of standard 2.1 were installed, but they did not have the support of all the capabilities, only video of new formats could be transmitted on them. In 2020, they added support for ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode). HGIG endorsement of the product by the association of video game and display manufacturers is more of an advertisement, but given that some manufacturers overestimate the real performance of TVs, this is an additional guarantee of acquiring a quality product.
There is support for NEXTGENTV a new standard for broadcasting over the air or cable 4K video. Supports eARC Advanced Audio Return Channel over HDMI. Everything else is unchanged.
Summary of LG OLEDWX
To summarize: is it worth buying a WX-series TV? Yes, the TV is more adapted to voice services and Smart capabilities. If you need a TV just for watching TV shows, the 2019 W9 model is not inferior in image quality.
