One of the most significant improvements comes in the area of above-black handling. Things look better too at the other end of the contrast-ratio spectrum. The maximum peak brightness on full-screen white hasn’t been raised, but what LG engineers have done is to twist the Automatic Brightness Limiter algorithm on the this TV to be less aggressive than before, this means that the image look noticeably brighter compared to last model. LG did a great job of providing vibrant yet realistic hues colours pop with stunning vibrancy and realism.

It supports four different HDR formats, HDR10 which is the most common open HDR used in ultra HD blue ray, HLG which stands for hybrid log gamma, the Dolby vision and Technicolor HDR and some of these will be only available when updated.
