About the LG 55NANO85UNA
Solid performance and value
Solid performance and value
The 55" 55NANO85UNA has a clear, vibrant picture that's definitely living room ready, and its compact size makes it a smart choice for a den or bedroom, too. LG's NanoCell™ display uses nano particles to absorb unwanted light wavelengths and enhance the purity of the red and green colors displayed on the screen, for a richer overall color palette.
LG also included their latest Alpha 7 Gen 3 video processor, which uses AI to intelligently enhance image color and motion. It improves picture depth and color accuracy.
LG's IPS panel provides wide viewing angles
If you frequently watch TV with friends or family, you'll want a TV with good off-axis viewing. And if one of LG's best-in-class OLED TVs is beyond your budget, the next best thing is LG's IPS LCD panel technology. It keeps picture contrast and color looking crisp even for viewers seated around to the sides of the screen. The trade-off is contrast and black levels that aren't quite top-notch. That just means this TV is best enjoyed with at least some room lights on.
A smart, convenient hub for all your connected devices
The 55NANO85UNA's built-in web apps give you easy, instant access to loads of streaming services: Netflix®, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, Hulu, and many more. With LG's ThinQ® AI intelligent voice control, you just speak directly into the remote's mic to operate the TV as well as a variety of compatible smart devices. As of right now, LG's ThinQ AI models are also the only TVs with both Google Assistant and Alexa built in.
LG's Magic Remote has been my favorite TV remote for a few years now. You can point, click, scroll or speak to find exactly what you want, searching across apps, movies, TV shows and the web, all at the same time.
With built-in support for Apple® AirPlay® 2, you can stream content wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® to a much bigger screen

Features & specs
NanoCell Display Technology: LG's NanoCell technology is a breakthrough in display technology that advances the LCD TV viewing experience by combining an expanded color gamut with the ability to more accurately create those colors, resulting in superior picture quality regardless of viewing angle. NanoCell Technology uses nano particles that absorb unwanted light wavelengths and enhances the purity of the red and green colors displayed on the screen. The result is dramatic, enhanced picture quality at wider viewing angles to give you an incredible cinematic experience.
- Nano Color with True Color Accuracy: The NanoCell display utilizes Nano Color True Color Accuracy technologies to reveal a billion lifelike colors, 64x richer than conventional TV. This ability to produce a full spectrum of color results in superior picture quality. Your favorite shows and movies are flawlessly reproduced with colors that are vivid and accurate. *Billion Rich Colors is achieved through 10 bit dithering (not actual 10-bit panel).
- Ultra Luminance: LG's NanoCell TV uses Ultra Luminance technology to deliver brighter, crisper image highlights. Ultra-HD picture quality becomes even more dynamic with an extended range of brightness , thanks to LG's Ultra Luminance technology. By enabling higher peak brightness and an enhanced contrast ratio, Ultra Luminance makes 4K & HDR images even more striking.
- Edge-Lit with Local Dimming: This Edge-lit TV provides even greater control of brightness & contrast through the use of NanoCell technology and local dimming to deliver deeper blacks, amazing clarity, and color detail. LG's local dimming technology analyzes the signal of the input video by areas of the screen, and then adjusts the backlight to improve the contrast ratio. This increased contrast ratio in turn enhances overall picture quality with greater clarity, plus bolder colors.
- IPS Panel: LG's IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens. IPS delivers authentic colors, virtually identical to the original image - even from a 60-degree angle. Witness colors as true-to-life as nature intended, vibrant across even a large screen, with the stunning clarity of 4K resolution.
a (Alpha) 7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3): The NanoCell TV is powered by LG's powerful a (Alpha) 7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3) for superior picture quality. The a (Alpha) 7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3) offers a host of technological advantages including deeper blacks, enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details, and accurate color from wide viewing angles.
- Advanced Color Enhancer: The Advanced Color Enhancer utilizes advanced color mapping technology to effectively correct any color distortions and delivers a picture that is accurate, natural, and lifelike.
- Double Step Noise Reduction: The a7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3) creates a clearer image with LG's own Double-Step Noise Reduction processing technology by reducing grain and banding noise better than many other conventional televisions.
- Sharpness Enhancer: The a7 Intelligent Processor's Sharpness Enhancer boosts fine detail and texture by accentuating the edges of the object in the picture. This creates greater depth, exceptional details, and more realistic pictures
AI Picture: AI Picture mode heightens picture quality with its deep learning algorithm (developed from a vast database of over one million visual data) which recognizes content source quality and determines the best upgrade method for optimal visual output. In addition to content source detection, a (Alpha) 7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3) finely adjusts the tone mapping curve in accordance with ambient conditions to offer optimized screen brightness; leveraging its ability to understand how the human eye perceives images in different lighting. The processor uses the TV's ambient light sensor to measure light levels, automatically adjusting brightness to compensate as needed. Additional AI Modes include -
- Filmmaker Mode: The Filmmaker Mode provides optimized cinema picture quality certified by UHD Alliance, the standard setting body for UHD-related technologies. The UHD Alliance Filmmaker Mode lets you see a director's vision for his or her movie by translating the director's cinematic vision to the TV with automatic picture and processor settings that deliver true authenticity.
- Dolby Vision IQ: Dolby Vision IQ combines the dynamic metadata found in Dolby Vision content with the LG OLED TV's embedded light sensor and AI technology. Dolby Vision IQ will automatically adjust picture settings for your Dolby Vision content depending on your room's ambient lighting conditions and content genre.
Ultra HD 4K Resolution w/ Upscaler: The LG NanoCell TV has a display resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 (4K) and will display all video at that resolution through its built-in upscaler, regardless of input signal. 4K provides four times higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition TVs with a total of 8.3 million pixels. Its detail is so vivid and crisp, even when viewed from close distances; it's nearly impossible to discern a single pixel, even from inches away. Enjoy incredibly flawless images, vivid colors, and picture details as never before. More benefits of Ultra-HD 4K include -
- Greater Sense Of Depth: At 4K, distant objects in a scene can be rendered with greater clarity than at 2K, with more nuances of light and shadow and focus for a greater sense of perceived depth.
- Better Color: Because pixels are units of colored light, their greater quantity in 4K enables more layered transitions and subtler gradations of tones, so the hues we see up on screen will be truer to what we see in nature.
- Sit Even Closer: 2K HD TVs carry a recommended viewing distance of three times (3X) the TV screen height, but with a 4K display you can move in to one-and-a-half times (1.5X) screen height without exposing individual pixels. Sitting closer better fills your field of vision, assuring total immersion in whatever you're watching.
Cinema HDR w/ Dynamic Tone Mapping: LG's Cinema HDR supports a variety of HDR formats - including Dolby Vision, as well as Active HDR10 & HLG. Thanks to the TV's Active HDR technology with Dynamic Tone Mapping, HDR video content is optimized with the correct amount of brightness and contrast, so all types of HDR content can be displayed beautifully. HDR (High Dynamic Range video) reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, bringing greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail.
- Dolby Vision: Dolby Vision Content has dynamic metadata that is produced during content creation, capturing the dynamic properties of each scene. This dynamic metadata is used to optimize the picture brightness curve on a frame-by-frame basis. Dolby Vision is the preferred HDR format by major Hollywood Studios and delivers the cinematic experience the creator intended by optimizing the picture frame-by-frame.
- Active HDR10 & HLG: Active HDR10 and HLG is LG's own proprietary HDR solution which processes a HDR10 or HLG video signal dynamically frame-by-frame using Dynamic Tone Mapping. HDR10 uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the TV that the video content is encoded using HDR; it is currently the most popular HDR format on the market. HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) uses no pre-encoded metadata and is primarily designed for live video and over-the-air broadcasts. Dynamic Tone Mapping allows the TV to offer the best picture possible, even when playing HDR10 content which only contains static metadata, or HLG content which uses no metadata at all.
- SDR-to-HDR Effect: The TV's HDR Effect Mode raises image quality for SDR content to near HDR quality utilizing Dynamic Tone Mapping technology. With the HDR Effect feature, SDR images are processed frame-by-frame to improve brightness in specific areas, enhance contrast ratios and render more precise images.
High Frame Rate (HFR) + TruMotion 240Hz: The a (Alpha) 7 Intelligent Processor (Gen 3) is designed to support high frame rate (HFR) for producing smoother and clearer motion images at 120 frames-per-second (fps) for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. In addition, the TV employ's LG's LG's proprietary TruMotion 240Hz backlight scanning system to further enhance the TV's 120Hz native panel refresh rate to reduce blur and yield crisper details; even during the most high-action sequences - from sports to action movies. You can select between 4 TruMotion modes - Off, Smooth (softens fast-moving pictures), Clear (makes fast-moving pictures clearer), or User (manually adjusts judder / blur / motion).
Note: Only the TV's HDMI 3 input and HDMI 4 input supports HFR @ 120Hz.
Optimized Gaming Mode: The TV offers ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), HGiG (HDR Gaming Interest Group) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) for an optimized gaming experience. ALLM lets the TV automatically recognize when a gaming console or gaming PC is connected and in use. HGiG is a HDR gaming profile that enables the the TV to render images the way they were intended to be seen by the creator. VRR delivers smooth action gaming with less studdering. Now you can enjoy an optimized HDR gaming experience with higher resolution, better contrast, intenses colors, smooth motion, and synchronized graphics.
