LG Electronics Canada (LG) unveiled its premium lineup for the Canadian market featuring new OLED, QNED MiniLED and NanoCell TVs, as well as audio products which were crafted to provide consumers a theatre-like experience from the comfort of their own homes.
“As Canadians spend more time at home, the television has become the entertainment hub for spending time with family,” said Gilles Pereira, Go to Market Manager, Home Entertainment LG Electronics Canada. “Whether they want a big screen front and centre with surround sound or a sleek design that blends into the room like artwork, LG has the right home entertainment products for everyone and every price point.”
Premium TV Lineup
Expanded LG OLED Lineup
LG OLED technology continues to change the way Canadians watch television. Built with self-lit pixels for perfect blacks, crystal-clear images and rich colors, a quick refresh rate and a slim design, LG OLED TVs continue to give customers a one of a kind viewing experience. The Canadian LG OLED 2021 lineup has expanded into the following series and sizes to meet various needs:
- LG OLED G1 series (available sizes: 55″, 65″, 77″) – This year, LG is introducing its LG OLED evo technology to its G1 series – an evolution of its award-winning OLED technology, delivering improved luminosity for higher brightness, clarity, detail and realism. Beyond technology, the G1 series is designed to have an ultra-thin form factor, which is a mere 20 millimeters thick (0.79 inches), allowing it to hang flush against the wall and seamlessly integrate the TV into any space.
- LG’s award-winning OLED C1 seriesi (available sizes: 48″, 55″, 65″, 77″, 83″) – Offers a variety of screen size options to accommodate diverse user needs and spaces. Starting with the 48-inch model for those looking for an immersive gaming experience, all the way up to the new 83″.
- LG OLED A1 series (available sizes: 48″, 55″, 65″) – At a more affordable price point, the LG A1 series is built with a 60 HZ refresh rate, providing superior OLED picture quality.
Introducing a New Standard in LCD Technology
Another addition for 2021 is LG’s new, award-winning LG QNED MiniLEDii which is an evolution in LCD technology that almost matches the power of an OLED.
This has been made available in both 8K and 4K models and in three sizes, 65″, 75″ and 86”. It is the first TV to combine LG’s Quantum Dot NanoCell technology and MiniLED backlighting to get more vibrant, accurate colors and a greater contrast than conventional LCD TVs. With MiniLED technology, the LG QNED MiniLED is created with 30,000 LEDs that allow it to be brighter than a traditional LCD TV. This technology also uses 2,500 dimming blocks for deeper blacks.
Bigger is Better
The new LG NanoCell lineup has 4K models that span a range of sizes starting at 43″ all the way to 86″ for an elevated viewing experience. The 2021 models are created to offer better picture quality with nanoparticles, which filter out dull colors, resulting in lifelike images that draw the viewer deeper into their favorite shows.
Unmatched User Experience
This year’s LG OLED, LG QNED99 and 4K NanoCell models are powered by LG’s latest intelligent processor, α (Alpha) 9 Gen 4 AI,iii for a better user experience. The new processor revolutionizes upscaling performance for clearer and sharper images, and visual optimization. For better picture quality, AI Picture Pro has been enhanced and can now easily identify objects onscreen to bring three-dimensionality and depth.
Additionally, AI Sound Pro up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1.2 surround while Auto Volume Leveling makes sure there is a consistent volume when switching between channels or streaming apps.
Users can now experience added convenience right from their TV with:
- webOS 6.0, which allows for faster access to apps, as well as simpler content discovery with finely tuned personalized recommendations.
- with LG ThinQ, the Home Dashboard enables consumers to create a truly connected home by controlling smart devices and LG appliances from their TV.
Canadians can now improve their homes without sacrificing style for functionality. Select LG TVs are designed with Cinema Screen, which forgoes the traditional bezel around the TV for a classic and refined look.
Now any LG TV can double as an art piece with the new Gallery Stand, a compact and modern accessory to display a TV.
Ultimate Audio Experience
The 2021 LG Soundbar line-up – SP11R, SP9, SP8, QP5 – offers high-quality audio backed up by Dolby Atmos and DTS: X for dynamic three-dimensional audio. The lineup includes AI features including AI Room Calibration, which uses spatial awareness to optimize sound in any room. AI Sound Pro utilizes adaptive sound control to automatically adjust frequency range and sound field extension, depending on which genre of content the user is watching – news, music or cinema. LG’s 2021 SP11R, SP9, SP8 soundbars work with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and AirPlay 2 as well as Chromecast and Spotify Connect.
In the effort toward a sustainable future, LG is taking a more eco-minded track in terms of product development, packaging and shipping of its 2021 soundbars, and creating the design for the first audio products in the industry to receive SGS Eco Product Certification. For many soundbar model cases, LG changed materials used in past models with recycled materials, and one model (SP7Y) features jersey fabric made of recycled PET bottles. Certified as Global Recycled Standard-compliant and UL environmental claim validated, each SP7Y soundbar means almost seven fewer plastic bottles occupying landfills.
To further help environmentally, LG adopted a friendlier packaging for its 2021 soundbar lineup. Using mainly recycled molded pulp and less EPS foam and plastic, the packaging for models SP11RA, SP9YA, SP8YA, SP7Y has earned Eco Product certification from Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS), a respected provider of testing, inspection and certification services based in Geneva, Switzerland. To receive this designation, SGS deemed that the soundbars would have minimal environmental impact as they emit less air pollutants, has less hazardous chemicals and give a high degree of recyclability. What’s more, the packaging is designed in an “L” shape so more units can fit in trucks, which means lower CO2 emissions, a crucial part of achieving environmental sustainability.
LG TONE Free earbuds with UVNano technology charging case, which can kill up to 99.9 per cent of bacteria on the speaker mesh,iv offers consumers a great listening experience. With LG’s continued collaboration with Meridian Audio, the audio capacity on the 2021 models have been improved to offer a better bass performance. This year’s models have enhanced sound with an improved three-microphone system to lessen ambient noise for clearer calls, perfect for those who work from home.

Now available in Canada, LG OLED pricing starts at $1,999; LG QNED starts at $2,999; LG NanoCell starts at $999, and LG Soundbars start at $249. LG TONE Free earbuds will be available in July. For complete product details and where to buy visit lg.ca.
