Screens on LG NANO2020 TVs

On NANO81, NANO85, NANO90 TVs, UHD screens with 8-bit color depth (8bit + FRC). The use of dithering technology makes it possible to display about one billion color shades. TV models NANO97, NANO99 TVs with a screen resolution of 8K and a color depth of 10 bits. The matrix has a WRGB structure, a white pixel is added, this increases the brightness of the screen. NANO81 and NANO85 screens with side illumination, for other TV models including 8K, Direct type backlight. The actual frequency of the screen is 120 Hz, except for NANO81 in this model the screen only supports 60 Hz.

Processors, SMART NANO 2020

The 4 ordinary processors are in NANO81, the a7 in NANO85, NANO90 and the a9 processor in NANO97, NANO99. Smart parameters are the same, since Smart works at the software level. The operating system is the same, respectively, and the capabilities are similar. Auto Genre Selection (automatic selection of TV presets) is slightly different depending on the TV model, the higher the TV class, the more content is supported.

Gaming capabilities, sound, connectivity ports in NANO 2020 TV series

Sound from standard 2.0 to standard 4.2 can be viewed in more detail in the table. There is support for WiSa but you must buy an access key (license). Gaming capabilities, given the availability of HDMI ports of standard 2.1 in TV models starting with NANO85, LG NANO 8 series TVs support new gaming capabilities, such as synchronizing the TV frequency with a video card, low input delay., But only on 4K TVs. On 8K TVs, this support is not available, most likely the reason is a software defect, which is unlikely. More like a special limitation, this may be due to insufficient processor power. The processor cannot simultaneously scale the video and process synchronization signals.

If we consider the entire line of NANO TVs in 2020, then these are TVs from the budget series to super, with standard screens made using IPS technology.
