Our take on the LG OLED55E8P

LG's 55" OLED55E8P will make you stop and stare whether the TV is on or off. This beauty delivers the same eye-popping picture as LG's OLED55C8P, but has a more potent speaker system, and comes wrapped in LG's elegantly thin "glass" design.

OLED55E8P (2018 model) vs. OLED55E7P (2017 model)

New features for 2018:
  • Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor improves noise reduction, sharpness, contrast, color, and motion
  • expanded voice control capabilities with built-in Google Assistant
  • OLED55E7P's front-firing speaker bar is replaced by conventional built-in speakers

Flawless OLED picture, stunning design

LG's 55" OLED55E8P will make you stop and stare whether the TV is on or off. This beauty delivers the same eye-popping picture as LG's OLED55C8P, but has a more potent speaker system, and comes wrapped in LG's elegantly thin "glass" design.

And compared to last year's E7P model, the '55E8P has more powerful video processing, plus some advanced smart TV conveniences.

Why OLED rocks — infinite picture contrast, absolute black, and wide viewing angles

Each and every OLED pixel — actually every sub-pixel — can switch off completely, producing absolute black. So far, OLED is the only screen technology that can pull off this difficult feat, and it's why OLED TVs can deliver such remarkable contrast and black levels. For watching movies in a dark room, OLED is just about unbeatable.

The OLED55E8P also delivers brilliant colors, covering nearly 100% of the P3 color format used for digital cinema and HDR movies. Colors pop, and thanks to the OLED55E8P's impressive peak brightness and advanced anti-glare screen coating, you'll see a vivid picture even in bright rooms. And if you like to watch TV with family or friends, you won't mind giving up the center seat — OLED images maintain exceptional contrast and color even for viewers seated off to the sides.

One of the OLED55E8P's key improvements over LG's 2017 models is the new Alpha 9 Intelligent Processor. It reduces noise, and constantly monitors and corrects color and contrast. But its most noticeable improvement relates to motion processing. The OLED55E8P gives you the ability to remove judder without adding the artificial-looking "soap opera effect."

Enjoy a premium HDR experience with more content

TV content enhanced with HDR (High Dynamic Range) is getting easier to find all the time. Its expanded picture contrast range adds noticeable visual punch to HDR-enhanced movies and shows streamed from Netflix® and Amazon Instant Video. And virtually every 4K Blu-ray movie has HDR.

The OLED55E8P not only supports the required HDR 10 format, but also the more sophisticated Dolby Vision™ format, which is a dynamic system that is able to adjust brightness and color levels in response to the video signal on a scene-by-scene basis. LG's Active HDR circuitry analyzes and optimizes HDR 10 content scene by scene, bringing it closer to what Dolby Vision achieves.

Let your TV be the hub for all your connected devices

The '55E8P's built-in web apps give you instant access to a nearly limitless selection of entertainment including streamed video from services like Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu. LG's AI ThinQ® intelligent voice control can process hundreds of voice commands. Just speak directly into the Magic Remote's mic to operate the TV as well as a variety of compatible smart devices. This TV is also compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa voice control assistants.

LG's motion-sensing Magic Remote is simple and fun to use. You can point, click, scroll and even speak into the remote to find exactly what you want, searching across apps, movies, TV shows and the web, all at the same time.
