Frameless Design
With LG frameless design, prepare yourself for a whole new viewing experience.

LG TruMotion 200Hz uses a unique scanning backlight technology to achieve a more superior natural picture. With this feature, it virtually eliminates motion blur and picture flicker, making it perfect for watching sport and fast action movies.

Intelligent Sensor
Intelligent Sensor automatically controls the brightness and colour of your TV picture, responding to the lighting in your room to reduce energy wastage.
