LG’s 2023 TV lineup includes its first wire-free OLED

LG is ready to cut the cord.

LG's latest lot of OLED TVs come in all shapes and sizes, but only one comes without wires.

First shown off at this year's CES in Las Vegas, the new LG Signature OLED M3 is a 4K TV with a 120Hz refresh rate and every bell and whistle that LG can bring to bear. At 97 inches, it's the largest TV that LG is selling this year. However, the real selling point here isn't the size or the quality of the display panel.

Instead, what's interesting about the OLED M3 is the fact it features almost no cable management. Rather than stick with the usual slew of HDMI and audio inputs on the back of the TV, LG has opted to wirelessly beam media from an external hub (called the Zero Connect Box) at the screen. You'll still need to run a power cable to the M3, but that's it.

Back when it was first announced, the biggest question mark around this cord-cutting OLED was the potential introduction of latency of this new implementation of a traditional TV might involve. While we got the chance to see the OLED M3 and how it works for ourselves, we didn't really get the chance to put it through its paces and find any answers to the above.

Another unknown here is the exact Australian price and availability, which have yet to be announced. LG Australia told us that it expects to bring the OLED M3 to Australia in the second half of this year, with pricing expected to sit around $1000 (USD) above OLED G3 series models of the same size.

Thankfully, a wire-free OLED is far from the only option on the table for those looking at the latest that LG has to offer.

LG Australia's marketing manager for home entertainment Tony Brown framed the breadth of this year's OLED and QNED roster as a natural product of the company's commitment to innovation and the shifting role of TVs within Australian homes.

"Whether it be the hub where people gather for the latest sporting match, game or movie, or a statement piece positioned to impress invited guests, this year we are providing a television for every consumer," he said.

For those who can't quite justify the premium that comes with cutting the cord, there's the LG Signature OLED G3. This one starts at $4,199. It's powered by LG's same Alpha9 Gen 6 AI Processor found in the M3 and has most of the same features and technology.

The LG OLED G3 can reach a peak brightness of 2100 nits, but it also comes kitted out with a nifty micro-lens array that tightens up picture quality. This makes for an OLED that's a little more resilient to glare, which is nice to see.

The new LG Signature OLED C3 sits below right below that with a starting price of $2,599. This model seems designed to catch the attention of as many consumers as possible. If you're after LG's cheapest new OLED TV, you'll find it here.

The C3 is available in the broadest variety of sizes, but no matter which one you opt you'll get the benefits of the Evo enhancement tech that the 4K TV features. LG's new brightness booster is also included in models that are 55 inches in size or larger.

Lastly, there's the new Signature OLED B3. With the retirement of the A series, this now represents the new bottom end of the range. It's a little cheaper than the C3, but it's also not as bright as it doesn't include Evo tech.

All of LG's OLED TVs run on the same Home WebOS interface and support both Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos.
