Default LG's 2020 NANO 4K & 8K HDR TVs, NANO99, NANO097, NANO90, NANO85, and NANO81


Just put up a nice comparison chart that I'll update as we learn more about LG's 2020 NanoCell 4K and 8K TVs. Nice line-up with two new 8K series, the NANO99 and NANO99 and three new 4K series, NANO90, NANO85, and NANO81. Screen sizes from 47" to 86".

Here's the webpage and here's the .pdf comparison chart.

Looks nice, hopefully at least a couple of them will be VA panels and not IPS panels. One of the biggest drawbacks of non-OLED LG TVs over the last bunch of years.

LG's 2020 LCD lineup offers two categories, with 4 NANO Cell series, NANO81, NANO85, NANO90 and NANO99 and the value prices LCD/LED TVs that do not sport the NANO Cell technology.

NANO Cell TVs are Quantium Dot full array locally dimmed LCD/LED TVs. The flagship series is the 8K NANO99 that comes in 75" and 65" screen sizes. NANO90 is the high-end 4K models that are available in 86", 75", 65" and 55" class. The NANO85's are 75", 65", 55" and 49" and the NANO81 models are made is 49", 55" and 65".

LG stepped up the picture quality and overall performance of these beautiful new TVs with a very modern design and minimalist bezel. The flagship 8K NANO99 boasts LG's latest flagship video processor, a9 Gen 3 and all other 2020 NANO 4K TVs have LG's new a7 Gen 3 processor.

Here's the comparison chart that lists all of LG's NANO Cell TVs for the 2020 model year. Note that the NANO97 will not be available in the USA. All other information is accurate at the time of this post.

Very nice NANO90 review in Forbes, from the well respected John Archer.

Looks like a good review. I'm always scared when it comes to LG LCD/LED tv's. I didn't exactly have a good history with them.

Totally agreee, but for the 2020 NANO Cell models LG Display has inproved the IPS production to ruduce the minimul luminance floor. The new NANO Cell TVs deliver an excellent overall picture and the new NANO90 and NANO99 series in all screen sizes are priced are very resonably.

Yeah I will need to wait until more reviews come out on the NANO90 before I would jump in. I'm waiting to close on a new house in June/July so I have time before I need to decide.

I saw what Archer wrote about it a few days ago, and was intrigued. Looking forward to the proper reviews, from him and others.

I'm curious to find out just how good a job LG really did of improving IPS.

They've really confused this range. If people just assume the name NanoCell is an indicator of a premium LED TV, then the Nano81 is particularly lacking in reality. I'd prefer a nice neat approach, where you knew the name NanoCell would be guaranteed to give you X, Y and Z. There are lower priced models in other ranges for those who still want them.

@oddbox83, although I agree with you, but also wanted to comment that when LG uses the work NANO in the model # for any of the 2020 LCD/LED TVs that are referring to the TVs that employ Quantium Dot technology.

Samsung does the same thing and offers low priced "QLED" TVs that also include Quantium Dot technology, but are not in the same league as the Q90T series.

I prefer OLED over NanoCell, but it is good to see new 75 inch 8K displays from LG. By around 2026 there should be some native 8K streaming options from companies like Netflix and VUDU since some movies and TV series are currently being recorded with native 8K digital cameras (In the ideal world maybe an 8K optical disc format around 2026 also). My computer monitor since 2015 has been 4K Ultra HD with HDCP 2.2 , however I am still using a classic 2008 Pioneer 1080P plasma. Maybe I should have upgraded to 4K projector or 4K OLED screen back in 2016, but the disappearance of 3D feature on all flat panels made me much more interested in a projector. I love the picture quality on my 12 year old Pioneer 1080P plasma and I am seriously considering skipping 4K displays and waiting to get a 8K display sometime around the year 2026 when 8K source material starts appearing on the market. I know that there are people that upgrade their display every 1 to 5 years. However, it’s a hassle and a lot of work to upgrade equipment so I general do an upgrade every 10-20 years for a display. There is a lot of issues with finding the perfect display that meets all my needs, its complicated. Some consumer 4K DLP projectors offer the 1080P 3D feature, but all the consumer 4K DLP projectors use pixel shifting technology that is not true 4K resolution. Some high-end $85,000+ professional 4K DLP projectors offer true 4096 x 2160P and 3840 x 2160P resolution (But I am not sure I am ready to spend that much on a projector). Then if I go with an 8K OLED screen or 4K OLED screen one has to give up the 3D feature and the 3840 x 2160P resolution on 4K OLED flat panels is only true for static resolution and motion resolution has losses on all LCD and OLED flat panels.

If I was to upgrade to 4K today it most likely would be a Sony or JVC LCOS 4K projector between $5,000-$35,000+ since they offer true 4K resolution and 3D 1080P. But the 3D is better on a DLP projector. My point is there is no perfect display. Everyone needs to make their personal decision on what is best to meet their needs. Sometimes one looks for the best performance and reliability in a display, other times one looks for the best value and price on a display. Nanocell are cheaper in price when compared to a OLED display.

I do like that LG has come out with some new 8K and 4K flat panel screens. In theory if TruMotion at 120Hz is turned off then native 4K, 1080P, and 720P material at 24Hz will be flashed on the screen at multiplies of 24fps (5:5 pulldown) to give a natural film quality look (Filmmaker mode should automatically disable frame interpolation and do the repeating frame method). All LCD and OLED flat panels lose resolution during motion scenes and only maintain their full resolution during static resolution. In theory an 8K flat panel if the algorithm in the software is correct then it should not lose any resolution when playing native 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs since the display starts at 8K resolution and during fast motion scenes would still be showing more resolution then 3840 x 2160P during the resolution lose (algorithm in the display should work with the upscale feature to drop only repeating lines of resolution that were upscaled from 4K to 8K to maintain all the 3840 x 2160P resolution from the source material) . Its only the 4K flat panels one would not see all the resolution of the 4K Blu-ray disc since during fast moving action scenes the 4K display would drop resolution.

I am disappointed that the 2020 LG OLED and NanoCell models do not offer the HDR10+ feature. Some VIZIO 4K flat panels offer HDR10+ and Dolby Vision HDR from one display. Also no ATSC 3.0 feature on the 2020 models, might have to wait until 2021 or 2022 for ATSC 3.0 built in. One can of course connect an external ATSC 3.0 tuner to their LG display.

Don't know about the NANO90 but according to Rtings.com review for the NANO85, its peak brightness is only slightly better than last year's SM8600.

Any idea why the 2020 model in Australia is Nano91 and has the old style, curved tv stand?

Costco carries the 65NANO91, is it different or just a warehouse model of the NANO90?
