”The first 4K OLED smaller than 50 inches is also the very best TV smaller than 50 inches that we’ve ever tested.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

48 inch OLED – compact brilliance

Widely regarded as one of the finest screen technologies, OLED sets a standard for contrast and black levels that’s hard to beat. The only real downside has been a lack of smaller screens. Until now. Thanks to LG, it’s now possible to get a 48 inch version of the award-winning technology, meaning you get all the OLED wonder but now in a TV that fits your room.

Latest Alpha 9 Gen 3 processor for the most powerful picture processing
At the heart of this LG’s impressive picture quality is the powerful, new Alpha 9 Gen 3 processor. This controls the sound and vision for the smoothest, cleanest images and sparkling sound. Based on AI deep learning, the processor checks and corrects all aspects of the picture quality for the highest level of realism possible. It also handles upscaling to 4K – making Full HD 1080p look smoother and more detailed on your 4K TV than ever.

OLED for stunning picture realism
making the most of the powerful processing is the OLED panel with advanced Pixel Level Dimming. OLED remains one of the best options for class-leading picture quality. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

AI Picture Pro – Face enhancing
With the a9 Gen 3 processor at its heart, this 48 inch LG TV is faster and smoother than ever. AI Picture Pro - Face Enhancing uses even more advanced AI facial recognition to identify faces within the image and then uses powerful processing to render them as realistically as possible. This helps give improved flesh tones that are much closer to how we see them in reality.

Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail
Dolby Vision IQ takes Dolby Vision to the next level, making it the ultimate HDR-type picture processor. Dolby Vision IQ version uses data within the signal and light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without ‘washing out’ the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is. Whether you’re watching a brightly lit sports event or moody movie, Dolby Vision IQ adjusts to suit.

See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
If you’re mad about movies, you’ll love Filmmaker Mode. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended.

The right setting every time, with Auto Genre Selection
The best picture settings for sport aren’t the same for movies or animation, which is why this LG adjusts to suit – automatically. Rather than having to delve deep into menu settings between viewing, simply leave it to the TV to get just the right setting. Movie, Sports, Animation and Standard settings are automatically applied.

Get in sync with your gaming, with Nvidia G-Sync
G-Sync is the game changing tech from Nvidia that keeps your screen totally in sync with your gaming. Provided your gaming PC has a compatible Nvidia graphics card, you’ll be able to sync up with this TV for stunning image response, with variable refresh rate up to 120Hz. This means the response between your movement and the onscreen image is swifter and clearer than ever.

AI Sound Pro and Dolby Atmos compatible sound
If you fancy a more cinematic sound from your TV, then LG’s AI Sound Pro should be music to your ears. Using AI algorithms, AI Sound Pro up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 sound – giving a much more immersive sound and enhanced dialogue. With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG 48” OLED TV decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. With its built-in 2.2 speaker set-up and a 40 watt amp, the OLED48CX5LC delivers a smooth, well-balanced sound.

Upgrade to wireless surround sound with WiSA*
WiSA stands for Wireless Speaker & Audio. The system wirelessly streams sound up to 24bit 96kHz, 8-channels and includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. WiSA is flexible as you decide which speakers you want and where you want them – they don’t even have to be from LG. Simply look for WiSA supported speakers and decide how you’d like your audio to sound. *Separate dongle purchase required.

AI TV for control your way
With AI (Artificial Intelligence) very much at the heart of this TV, a huge range of control options become available. Compatible with Google Home, Amazon Echo and Apple’s HomePod, your smart speaker can be used to voice control the TV. For a seamless AV experience, use with one of LG’s own smart speakers. If you prefer smartphone to voice control, the TV is also compatible with LG TV Plus and Smart ThinQ apps, as well as Apple AirPlay 2.

All the streaming services you need including Apple TV Plus and Disney+
This smart TV is ready for the rapidly expanding range of top quality TV streaming services. All your favourites are there, including the BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and Now TV. New for 2020 are the much anticipated Apple TV Plus and Disney+ – giving you a wider range of premium (paid for) TV streaming services than ever. ITV Hub and other terrestrial catch-up TV services coming later this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 48” LG OLED TV I treated myself to a new 48” LG OLED TV after reading reviews in Which magazine. It looks beautiful when it’s on and when it’s off! I’m delighted with it. The guys at Richer Sounds were very helpful & it was ready for collection in less than 24 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! You can get cheaper units for sure, but this is a quality display. Perfect size for a smaller room and superior for gaming. Worth the extra spend in my opinion.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great TV but with some short-comings The likelihood is that all the other Reviews which you've read are correct to report that this is a great TV. It is, BUT...BUT...BUT... It has four issues which never get mentioned: 1. The only "catch-up" service to which it can connect is the BBC iPlayer. It cannot connect to the ITV Hub, All 4 or My5 (apparently because because LG haven't sorted out the necessary Licence deal). When I realised this, but only after purchasing, Richer Sounds leapt into action and instantly resolved my complaint by providing me with an Amazon Fire Stick (which needs its own separate power supply and almost certainly a USB extension cable) --- but this wouldn't be necessary if the TV was truly 'Smart'. You can, however, use this TV to remotely switch-on your hot-tub or outdoor fairy lights, if these are important options for you. 2. It has two very widely-spaced feet which ensure absolute stability, but the absence of a single centre foot means it needs to stand on a cabinet the same width as itself rather than something much narrower. Obviously this isn't an issue if the TV is to be wall-hung - but mine wasn't so it now stands on a plank plonked on top of my just-too-narrow cabinet which, aesthetically, isn't at all pretty. 3. The Remote and the On-Screen Menu are the least intuitive I've yet encountered. Much of what I had learned to do now needs to be forgotten and new tricks mastered. Tiresome! 4. The power cable is very short. If the TV is within about 1.5m of a mains socket, fine; otherwise an extension cable is unavoidable. Since an extra couple of metres of mains cable would have only cost LG a few cents/pennies, its deliberate omission is particularly mean. This also applies to the Amazon Fire Stick too since the supplied USB cable is just short of 1.5m in length when far longer is going to be required by most people. Would I recommend this TV? To say "No" would be unfair so I've answered "Yes" but I'd have greatly preferred to be able to say "Yes, with reservations". In honest actuality, I probably regret not buying a 49" Samsung even though its screen doesn't rate quite so highly as this OLED tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great telly Telly arrived last monday.Bit aprehensive as there was no instructions on how to set it up i.e. tune it in.I need`nt have worried though,plugged it in followed the on screen text`s and bingo 15mins. it was up and running.The picture quality is stunning, watching early(hazy) fools and horses were sharp in contrast to my panasonic plasma, even old black and white films sparkle.The sound quality for such a thin television is not bad at all.Had my plasma telly for a number of years,so goodbye old chum,there`s a new kid on the block.Oh aye,the delivery is free.
