”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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic OLED TV Purchased a week ago and have been very impressed with the LG OLED TV. TV was more than I initially wanted to spend but to ensure it was future proofing (120hz for better refresh rate for use with my PS5 when the AAA titles support this) the bigger budget was justified. I had looked into majority of brands before purchase with the LG CX panel gaining more favourable reviews and I am very impressed so far with the picture quality along with the built in speakers also. Opted for the smaller screen for gaming preferences again and happy with the choice made. The LG CX blows my other 4K tv out of the park (Hisense) and could not recommend this purchase highly enough has been great so far for movies along with ups sling older non UHD tv shows from Netflix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my PS5 I bought this to replace a Samsung QLED QE49Q80T and what surprised me is that I could see a noticeable difference in the picture quality when used with my PS5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not wish for more. I bought the OLED 48 2weeks ago ready for the England matches.So glad I did the picture and sound from the sound bar was quite astounding.Thanks to LG I am sure that I am their customer in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the range Right from the off this LG oled impresses. Even better, as more features are discovered, it continues. The sound setting for speech is a real asset. My 4k BT box plays faultlessly through it and so does my firestick. Casting works fine. All round excellent sound and vision. Not a cheap option, but Richer Sounds honoured their price match guarantee and saved me £120.For something in daily use it's worth paying for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! The picture on this TV is outstanding. I haven't seen fit to change the picture settings from the defaults, quite unlike my previous LG TV. Everything looks more realistic, even SD. I cannot comment on the sound quality as I listen via an AV amp. I use it as a PC monitor as well as a TV and it didn't take too long to figure out how to get the Windows screen output to fit correctly, although at first the edges were missing. BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Amazon video in UHD are wonderful. ITV hub and my5 are available, which apparently wasn't always the case, but not Channel 4 catch-up. As I can use the PC for that it isn't a problem for me. One other nice thing is its stand, which enables the TV to sit on a 12" Komodo rotating platform to allow it to be swivelled so I can watch it while I do the ironing at the other end of the room. I am very pleased with this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like being at the Cinema! Am so pleased I paid the extra money to get this TV, it had excellent reviews and rightly so, the sound and picture are incredible especially when watching Netflix/Amazon it's like being at the cinema.
Date published: 2021-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant TV First new TV in 10 years - amazing how much technology has changed in that time, so decided to go for an OLED screen to future proof a little. The LG OLED48CX5 is simply amazing - picture quality is stunning and the sound is adequate too, considering the size of the unit - I don’t think a sound bar will be needed. Easy to set up all the services and menu options - far easier than the Panasonic LED the in-laws have just purchased. My only negative is that the Home Screen isn’t great - it would be good if the WebOS could be upgraded to this years offering as the Home Screen on the 2021 version is much nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Was having trouble hearing the talk on movies on my old tv . The sound and picture are brilliant on my new one .
