LG’s Wireless 97-Inch OLED TV Comes With a Massive Surprise

I have cover the TV in sporty years, so it took a lot to surprise me. I have seen some wild screens, that one scroll and the bigger they are basically a video wall, but this usually comes after several rounds of the prototype, which is dull shock. When I entered the LG suite at a hotel in Las Vegas, however, what I saw in the room came as huge surprised

And I mean big. This is a 97-inch OLED TV, and remains the largest OLED TV in the world. And since OLED provides the best image quality available, it’s damn impressive in people of that size. But that’s no surprise — LG introduced it last year. For me, the jaw-dropper came when the LG rep told me it was beautiful, big 4K The picture is beamed to the TV without cables.

LG Wireless OLED TV is 97 Inch Tech Power


Across the room from the TV sat a wireless transmitter box. On the back of the box it is standard HDMI plugs and a handful of other connections, and an HDMI cable runs to the Blu-ray player. The image on the screen was from a Blu-ray disc, sent wirelessly — and flawlessly, to my eyes — from the box to the TV. The top of the box is rotatable for the purpose of the internal antenna on the television.

The TV itself does not have a video input, just a bare metal where the TV input usually resides around the back. The idea is to reduce the wiring, that age-old bugaboo of nice TV installation. You, the person who can afford a 97-inch OLED TV, put your AV gear inside an invisible cabinet, and the transmitter box where everything is mounted. It just leaves the power cable to the TV, the LG cable is artfully hidden inside one of the vertical legs.

Sure, a number of TV stands can also hold your gear. But wireless connectivity allows the TV to stand alone, which looks interesting on one of the LG easel-like stands (pictured above) and can simplify wall-mount installation.

LG says the box can be placed up to 30 feet from the TV. I asked if the wireless connection is a potential danger, especially if you sit between the box and the TV, and the company representative told me it is not because it uses the same technology as a standard Wi-Fi router. It also says it won’t be affected by other Wi-Fi traffic. The signal can handle up to 4K, 120Hz resolution, which is pretty much the maximum for today’s game. It’s also the highest resolution and frame rate that most TVs, including LG’s normal 4K OLED models, can accept.

The box has three HDMI inputs, surprising since most high-end TVs have four, but that’s not a deal-breaker in my book. The rest of the ports are typical for TV: antenna, two USB, Ethernet and optical digital out, as well as a serial port for home automation control.

Wireless TVs have been sold in the past, and wireless technology is appearing in projectors as well. You can also buy a wireless HDMI extender kit for $100 or less, but they generally cannot handle such high bandwidth. It’s the first time in years I’ve seen it built into a TV. A company called Displace TV also showed off a wireless OLED model at CES, but it’s a battery-powered 55-inch screen designed for portability.

In addition to the 97-inch size, LG will release its wireless OLED, called the M3 series, in 83- and 77-inch sizes. LG says it will arrive in 2023 with pricing, like the rest of LG’s 2023 TVs, still to be determined. For reference, LG charges $25,000 for a standard 97-inch OLED TV with a 97-inch cable and $2,900 for a 77-inch, so regardless of size, the M3 won’t be cheap.

Apart from M3 LG was also introduced The other three series of cable TV OLED at CES 2023.
