LG 65ART60 Easel, Oled UHD 4K Lifestyle TV, updated specifications and indicative price

After our overview of the Korean manufacturer's 2023 TV range, with the LG B3, LG C3 Evo, LG G3 Evo, LG Z3 Evo and LG M3 Oled TV series (click to find out more), the LCD series LG QNED81, LG QNED82 and LG QNED86 (presentation to come later, the series being announced for the start of the school year), make way for the Lifestyle Easel model, also known as the LG 65ART60 vintage 2022, still in the catalog in 2023, a specimen with an explosive design and exploding.

In short, if the design of the LG 65ART60 (65'', 165 cm) TV is unique, its technical characteristics are essentially based on those of the LG OLED65C2 TV, modulo a few differences, for example a more accomplished sound section which benefits the sliding panel (see photo below) to accommodate a greater number of loudspeakers.

TV LG 65ART60, Brightness Booster technology

For the rest, the LG 65ART60 therefore benefits from an Oled EX panel signed LG Display, an Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor and the associated algorithms. Also on the menu, Brightness Booster technology and not Brightness Booster Max as on the LG G2/G3 TV series, this distinction in the name indicating the absence of a heat sink here. In the end, the LG 65ART60 TV displays a light peak about 20% higher than that of the "classic" Oled panels embedded on the LG A2 and LG B2 screens, vintage 2022.

Among the other advantages of the OLED EX panel of the Easel TV, a new algorithm for controlling the displayed image. After studying the user's viewing habits, the latter optimizes the settings of each pixel on the screen (up to 33 million for 8K Ultra HD TVs) via extremely fine control of the electrical energy sent to each organic diode. The latter offers, according to LG Display, more details displayed in the dark and bright areas of the image for a wealth of textures in progress. This would be a welcome novelty to improve the display of HDR signals, a weak point of OLED technology.

Zoom on the evolution of LG Oled TVs vintage 2022

The other main specification of the LG 65ART60 therefore lies in the presence of the Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor in charge of video processing (see our CES 22 news > New Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor for LG Oled TV and QNED Mini LED), which still has four major and distinct steps to sanitize video noise. However, unlike the Oled TV series of previous years, instead of being produced one after the other, these are here produced in one go. Which, in the end, translates into an increase in image quality, the risk of error between two steps being reduced. Thanks to the power of Alpha 9 Gen 5.

The increased resources of the latter reinforce the performance of the AI Picture Pro and AI Sound Pro processes still present: the first is based on a Deep Learning program (image processing is adapted to the nature of the content for optimized on-screen display with, to be noted, a new Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro algorithm that will subdivide the screen into more independent areas for increased overall colorimetric fidelity). Ditto for the second, modulo the audio content with the possibility of a virtual 7.1.2 audio environment from a stereo signal in order to improve sound immersion.

In terms of the LG 65ART60 television again, we should point out the WebOS 22 interface (click on the link to find out all about this unprecedented ergonomics) which gives pride of place to content and now offers profile management. With it, the Launch Bar disappears in favor of a proposal close to that of Google TV or Android TV.

In terms of flagship services, in addition to GeForce Now already available, many other services are on the program. And the Game Optimizer vintage 2022 mode (new Dark Room mode) collects all the TV settings involved with a video game signal and allows the user to individually set them as desired.

To come back to the Alpha 9 Gen 5, its algorithms always more precisely identify the faces and the text displayed on the screen to optimize the settings. But also the objects and the bodies of the individuals on the screen. Result, a sharpness announced on the rise and a skin tone never faulted. Similarly, the Auto Genre Selection function recognizes more precisely and automatically the nature of the content displayed on the screen and selects the optimum settings (film, sport, SD definition, HD, etc.).

Otherwise, many specifications hardly change from year to year. We list the main ones below:

• A Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro color conversion table (3DLUT) with nearly 36,000 color correction points for perfect accuracy, better image depth by managing the different focal planes via the Object Depth process Enhancer, and increased precision of image sharpness

• LG Oled TVs are able to convey a Dolby Atmos audio signal (with virtual 7.1.2 conversion) via the eARC function of the HDMI socket. This is to retrieve the Dolby Atmos soundtracks available from Netflix for example.

• Wisa compatibility to enjoy TV sound, up to 5.1, on appropriate speakers, i.e. wireless

• ThinQ AI Smart TV function

• 4 HDMI 2.1 inputs (48 Gb/s)

• ALLM and VRR compatibility (from 40 Hz to 120 Hz)

• a 4K Ultra HD HFR signal (120 frames per second) via the HDMI connectors

• Direct integration of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants

• VP9 and AV1 compatibility via HDMI or USB

• Label HGiG (HDR Gaming interest Group)

• G-Sync and FreeSync compatibility

• Bluetooth Surround function (to use LG Bluetooth speakers as a surround speaker in a multi-channel setup)

• Filmmaker mode

• Voice control (Hi LG or Alexa) thanks to the microphones integrated into the TV (without the need for the remote control)

• Absolutely splendid design: on the wall, on a stand with the Gallery Stand or the Floor Stand (see photos more bottom), the result is magnificent

• Sport Alert function to be informed in real time, via superimposed notification of the displayed image of the news of his favorite team (score, upcoming matches…)

LG 65ART60 Easel: HDR10, HDR Dolby Vision, HDR HLG and Dolby Vision IQ Precision Detail

There is also a native 100 Hz flat OLED Ultra HD 10-bit panel and the Perfect Color (99% of the DCI-P3 color space) and True Color Accuracy Pro functions for unprecedented color accuracy.

Also on the menu, the AI 4K Upscaling UHD algorithm capable of upscaling SD/HD sources to Ultra HD and a slim 4.2 sound bar delivering a total power of 80 W (4 x 10 W + 2 x 20 W for bass). Not to mention HEVC 2 160p/50 and 2 160p/60 compatibility, codec used for HD VOD and Ultra HD Blu-Ray.

The 4K Cinema HDR function is associated with HDR10, HDR Dolby Vision and HDR HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) compatibility. Also present, the Dolby Vision IQ Precision Detail process, exclusive on LG TVs for the moment, to enjoy a Dolby Vision HDR image that is always perfectly set regardless of the surrounding light conditions, plus the HDR called HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro already mention. And the result is convincing with more details in very bright and dark areas.

Namely, for the Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro function vintage 2022, the image is divided into 5,000 distinct zones which each benefit from a specific setting, compared to 500 zones on OLED TVs from previous ranges.

In addition to this, we note the Ultra Luminance Pro function to further improve the dynamic range of the image. This is capable of boosting brightness by transferring unused light energy from dark areas of the image to bright areas.

LG 65ART60, Smart TV ThinQ AI

The LG 65ART60 display of course offers the LG ThinQ AI 2022 function. As already mentioned above, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are integrated. These voice assistants are both accessible directly on the remote control via a dedicated button but also through the TV, without the need for the zappette). In addition to exchanging vocally directly with your screen, as with a Google Home or Amazon Echo speaker, it is possible to control by voice through the TV other Google Assistant and Alexa certified devices shared on the local network. All of this provides access to the internet and specific services (LG App Store online store, chat on social networks, etc.), or directly to the web as on a computer. Of course, Miracast, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are on the menu again.


Otherwise, ThinQ AI has its own AI module to drive the TV easily and quickly. But the Conversational mode available on Alexa and even more so on Google Assistant is not relevant here. ThinQ AI is perfect for giving the TV a command, such as "Volume up" or "Turn on Cinema mode", but it's Google Assistant that takes over during a more in-depth question, on an actor displayed on the screen. 'screen or more generally to search for information related or not to the broadcast content.


Don't forget either that the Magic Remote includes a microphone for ergonomics, via voice command, which is always excellent. WebOS 22 also allows you to enjoy 360° videos directly on the TV screen and to use the Magic Remote to move around in the image.


LG 65ART60 Easel, and the rest?

For the rest, the LG 65ART60 Easel TV has a simple DVB-T2, DVB-S2 and DVB-C tuner, an Auto Level function (to avoid sudden changes in sound volume when changing source) , Fransat and Canal Ready certifications, HBBTV compatibility, the DVR function to record your favorite programs via one of the three USB Host 2.0 ports on a suitable key or an external HDD, all associated with the Time Shifting function.
