It’s a whole lineup of eye-popping TVs

Strap yourselves onto your couches. LG is rolling out 14 new OLED models including the art inspired GX Gallery series, real 8K ZX models, and 4K Ultra HD TVs.

Being one of the undisputed leaders of OLED TVs, LG is taking the viewing and gaming experience into a whole different dimension starting this month. LG is making sure users have a good sense of sophisticated through their 2020 premium TV designs. Their goal? To keep at seamlessly integrating and elevating any space with their line-up.

Since OLED relentlessly continues to offer the best viewing experience, they’ve stuck with it, developed it, and grown with it.  The self-emissive display technology is able to precisely control light at the pixel level for the deepest blacks, most realistic colors, and stunner contrasts.

LG GX Gallery series models

As LG struts into their new line of TVs this 2020, they’re committed to outstanding design with three of their new GX Gallery series models. They have 55-inches, 65-inches, and 77-inches variants for this model. This set offers a uniquely minimalistic aesthetic through OLED’s revolutionary panel technology.

This model series holds water with state-of-the-art picture quality with an ultra-thin form factor, without the need of a separate control box! Pushing the simplistic design further, the TV mounts flush to the wall blending these slick bad boys right into your living room.

LG OLED ZX Real 8K models

Detail and clarity. Two things we wish our eyes would improve on overtime. Do you know what stays consistent on this matter though? LG. Producing images of unprecedented detail and clarity, LG launched their most anticipated OLED ZX Real 8K models: models 88 OLED ZX and 77 OLED ZX.

Promising to deliver four times the screen resolution of 4K and 16 times that of Full HD, it’s everything we wanted and maybe a little bit more. To guarantee the authentic 8K experience, LG brags to meet and exceed the industry definition for 8K Ultra HD TVs by making these models among the very first 8K models qualified to use the CTA 8K Ultra HD logo.

LG 4K Ultra HD models

LG isn’t holding back. On top of all those models already mentioned above, they’re also rolling out all-new 4K OLED TV models for 2020: models CX and BX with 77-inches, 65-inches, and 55-inches variants.

They swear by how each of the models on this series each deliver outstanding picture quality that LG OLED is known for. LG is also dabbling into releasing a new size to choose from when the 48-inch CX OLED TV becomes available later this year.

LG NanoCell 8K models

But wait, there’s more. LG isn’t done just yet. They’ve developed Real 8K units for their NanoCell TV series with is LG’s premium LCD TV lineup. They come with 75-inches and 65-inches in Nano99, Nano97, Nano95 series variants as well as, a 55-inch Nano95 series variant. Like, their OLED counterparts, they all carry the standard CTA 8K UHD logo. Not to mention how all of LG’s 8K TVs support 8K content streaming at 60FPS and are all certified to provide 8K 60P over HDMI.

Upgrades and new features

Most of LG 2020 OLED and 8K NanoCell TVs get an upgrade with their all-new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. The company’s third-generation processor builds on its predecessors’ capabilities with their new models leveraging on additional processing power and advanced adaptive algorithms that boost photo and sound quality. Being decked out with this processor helps LG heighten viewers’ sense of immersion with several new features designed to enhance user experience with movies, sports, and games.

LG has a lot to flex about after their latest OLED models won the Hollywood Professional Association’s Excellence in Engineering Award. Their models are the first TVs to deliver integrated calibration software that doesn’t just talk a big talk but walks the talk by performing to a hardware level. With support from the new Dolby Vision IQ and the UHD Alliance’s Filmmaker Mode, LG OLED displays movies almost exactly as the filmmakers themselves intended. From stunning visuals and quality sound performance, the new OLED and NanoCell TVs provide high-quality immersive content to a whole new level with top providers like Apple TV, Disney+ and Netflix.

Sports, esports, and gaming

Being the first manufacturer to offer TVs that are NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible, LG is introducing a total of 12 new OLED models that support this essential gaming tech. Why you ask? Well, G-SYNC ensures graphics are rendered perfectly, ultimately reducing inaccuracies with real-time in-game display delays with their swift and crisp 120Hz refresh rate.

This doesn’t just make it gamer or esports friendly though. With OLED TVs racking up this much detail into their large screens, they’re sure to make watching any sports feel like you’re there. And they even integrated a Sports Alert feature that lets users follow their favorite teams with real-time scores and up-to-date schedules across a wide range of professional sports (ie. Baseball, football, soccer, etc.)

Again, LG prides itself with its self-emissive OLED technology which employs the individual pixel precision control, allowing them to produce exceptional picture quality with low input lag and ultra-fast response time. And, with their 360-degree soundscape on their 2020 LG TVs, you’ll be having the time of your life watching, playing, and cheering.

Oblio is a 2-in-1 UV-C sanitizer and wireless charging station

Keeping it clean stylishly

Admit it or not, UV-C sterilizers and sanitizers are now revolutionizing our home and office spaces. At CES 2021, Lexon Design took cleaning accessories up a notch.

Introducing Oblio, this vase-like UV-C sanitizer helps prevent the spread of harmful bacteria found on our smartphones. It has a built-in UV-C LED, which extinguishes the DNA of microorganisms found in viruses, mold, and germs.

Oblio is capable of extensive disinfection, sanitizing your device for a 20-minute cycle. Through lab testing, it has been proven effective to kill 99.9 percent of viruses, including H1N1.

Just like Samsung’s personal sanitizer, Oblio also lets you charge your devices wirelessly. With a 10W wireless charging capability, you can fully charge a smartphone in three hours. Additionally, it comes with an LED indicator. This is so you’ll know the charging status of your device inside.

But what sets it apart from other sanitizers? Apparently, Oblio’s meaning and design. The name Oblio means “forgot” in the native language of Italian designers Manuela Simonelli and Andrea Quaglio.

Its meaning echoes the accessory’s vase shape, ingeniously designed to help people disconnect — literally forgetting their smartphones so they can be more present.

Price and availability

Oblio sanitizes and charges all Qi-enabled smartphones, regardless if it’s iPhone or Android. The 2-in-1 accessory is already available at prominent retailers worldwide such as Best Buy, Nordstrom, MoMA Design Store in the US, Fnac Darty in Europe, and more.

It retails for US$ 79.90 and is available in four colors: White, Gold, Dark Blue, and Matt Black. You can get it through its official online store at Lexon Design.

Hedgehog protects your smart home from cyber attacks

This homeware keeps people, data, and devices safe

Published

Protecting your home is more than just smart locks, CCTVs, and firewalls for your digital premises. With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) or those appliances and devices that are becoming smarter, life has been easier. However, the price of convenience comes with the risk of a new threat: cyber attacks.

These days, both enterprises and homeowners must increase security at all levels. As such, we need an extra guardian. Meet Hedgehog, the “world’s first whole home” cybersecurity device.

Launched at CES 2021, Hedgehog was described as a home’s digital guardian, protecting the household from possible attacks that firewalls and anti-virus software can’t.

The digital guardian we need?

Unsure how you can possibly be attacked? Imagine if your smart fridge got hacked, or if your smart vacuum malfunctioned. How about if your smart locks break and make it possible for actual thieves to enter your home.

These situations aren’t far from happening in our reality. After all, cyber criminals are actively and increasingly targeting everyday people. Home networks are easy to target to access personal and corporate data, especially at an age where people are remotely working from home.

Hedgehog aims to protect the entire home and all IoT devices inside a network. From phones, fridges, PCs, speakers, webcams, tablets, and Smart TVs — basically anything that’s smart enough to use the Internet and make your life easier.

A smart, functional homeware

Despite being a digital guardian, Hedgehog doesn’t dismiss your existing firewalls and anti-virus software. Rather, it works alongside those security measures and other home security products, offering holistic protection. It simply shields all the people, devices, and networks within a home.

Even though it’s a smart piece of technology, designed to look like homeware. Its unassuming look helps it blends easily. It’s also smart enough to install itself and connect to an existing Wi-Fi connection.

And when it does, it watches the entire household, identifying anything suspicious, and alerts the home-owner via an app. It also neutralizes threats quickly and effectively, protecting both data and people.

Price and availability

The Hedgehog device and its annual subscription are available to pre-order at a discounted price of EUR 99 with no subscription fees. It’s available in two colors: Orange Belly and Midnight Blue. Get more information about the device and its offers through this link.
