CES 23 > Oled TV LG M3: 77'', 83'' and 97'', updated photos and specifications

Announced in our columns almost a month ago (see our CES 23 news > LG G3 Oled TV, MLA technology for a light peak of +70% on 55''/65'' and 77'' panels ), the new LG M3 TV series has just been made official by the manufacturer.

As a reminder, the LG M3 TV series has three references, the LG OLED77M3 (196 cm), LG OLED83M3 (211 cm) and LG OLED97M3 (246 cm). Only the last, the largest, was made official at CES 2023, however our information mentions 77 ''/83 '' models. Perhaps they will be announced later in the year, or for the next IFA Berlin 2023 show in early September.

Oled LG M-series TV series, originally scheduled for CES in Las Vegas 2021

Namely, the Oled LG M1 TV series was initially planned for the 2021 range and was supposed to create a buzz in the gaming capital, but LG Electronics had logically decided to postpone it, the 2021 edition of CES having been canceled for cause. of Covid-19. No Oled LG M2 TV series in 2022 either. The CES show in Las Vegas being held again in the midst of a health crisis due to the Omicron variant, it was likely to be canceled until the last moment, resulting in a symbolic presence of many brands with stands reduced to the strict minimum or even deserted. (see our news CES report from Las Vegas 2022, the party is ruined…).

TV Oled LG M3, LG G3 models without MLA panel

In short, the Oled LG M3 TV series is neither more nor less than an LG G3 series sporting exactly the same design but with a remote wireless box (the black box present in the photos below and below) grouping together all the connectors and part of the electronics. This configuration is referred to by LG as Zero Connect technology.

More generally, the equipment of LG M3 TVs remains identical to that of LG G3 models, with one major difference, the absence of MLA (Micro Lenses Array) technology, see our CES 23 news > Oled TV LG G3, MLA technology for a luminous peak of +70% on 55''/65'' and 77'' panels), even on the 77 inch. This last precision is important because, as a reminder, if the LG OLED83G3 and LG OLED97G3 references do not have an MLA panel, the LG OLED77G3 is indeed equipped with MLA technology. To sum up, the LG M3 83''/97'' models are identical to the LG G3, modulo the presence of the wireless box. The LG M3 77'' differs from the LG G3 77'' by the presence of the same casing of course, but also by the absence of the MLA process.

In its press release, LG announces wireless management (between the box and the screen) of the 4K/120 function and voice control of the TV. Availability announced for this summer. Indicative prices still unknown.
