The 42-inch and 48-inch LG C2 TVs won’t offer the same peak brightness as the 55-, 65-, 77-, and 83-inch models. Everything else, including the Alpha 9 Gen 5 AI processor and webOS 22 features, will be identical.
LG has confirmed to our colleagues to TechRadar that the 42-inch and 48-inch versions of the LG C2 won’t get the same peak brightness as other models in the larger C2 lineup. All televisions will indeed carry an Oled Evo panel, but the small models will not exploit the gain in brightness allowed by this new panel. According to LG, the very high resolution (pixel density) on the 42 and 48-inch models does not allow for a significant increase in brightness. On the other hand, on the 55, 65, 77 and 83 inch models, the manufacturer confirms that there should be a gain in brightness of around 20% compared to LG A2 and B2 televisions equipped with a classic OLED panel. , but also compared to the 42C2 and 48C2.
The Oled Evo panel was introduced in 2021 on the LG G1 – we tested the LG 65G1 – and brings a very slight gain in brightness compared to the classic panel used by the LG 65C1. This year, the LG G2 will use the new Oled EX panel associated with a specific cooling system, which should allow it to tease the Panasonic TX-65JZ1500 television (the brightest Oled TV on the market) equipped with an Oled Professional Edition panel and a specific cooling system allowing it to exceed a peak brightness of 950 cd/m². The LG G2 test should be published in April, while the C2 should arrive in the coming weeks.
