What is the LG E8 OLED?

The LG E8 OLED is the first TV we’ve tested from the company’s 2018 range. That’s exciting, given OLED’s dominance of the high-end 2017 TV market.

As it was last year, the E series is the step-up option offering a more premium design than the standard C series. The E8 arrives boasting a refreshed design, enriched smart features and, best of all, a powerful new processing engine. Maybe this doesn’t sound all that much on paper – but trust me: that new processing engine matters. It matters a lot.

Here we have the 65-inch LG E8 OLED, or by its full name the LG OLED65E8P. It’s also available at 55 inches (LG OLED55E8P).

LG E8 OLED – Design and build

The LG E8 OLED remains a thing of beauty, but it isn’t quite as glorious as its predecessor, the LG OLED65E7. The latter had glass protruding some distance from all four sides of its frame, which served to exaggerate the incredible slimness of its ‘pixels on glass’ design.
