LG OLED TVs and LG NanoCell TVs

LG has always been known for its televisions, particularly its OLED TVs. A more affordable option would be its NanoCell TVs, which offers the same level of performance in an LED display. All of LG’s top-range televisions offer a wide array of AI features, which includes the picture and audio quality, brightness, and even acoustic tuning. Both OLED and NanoCell TVs are capable of listening and acting upon a user’s command, thanks to the LG ThinQ AI platform. You can now seamlessly select your favourite shows, ask questions, and even take control of your compatible smart home devices, straight from the television. All this can be done through the LG Magic Remote, which comes with a built-in microphone.

LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator

If you’re used to opening the refrigerator for a few seconds, peeking inside, and closing it soon after, fret not. LG has a solution to that now. Its InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator comes with a see-through panel on one side. A simple ‘knock knock’ on the panel will show you what’s held within. Now you can see what’s inside the refrigerator without having to open the door. This reduces the loss of cold air up to 41%, and produce is kept fresher and lasts longer. The refrigerator can also be controlled through the ThinQ smartphone app; you can now make ice remotely without having to walk to the fridge. The app will also notify you if the refrigerator door has been left ajar.

It provides clean drinking water in a quick, environmentally-friendly way with the help of its cutting-edge tankless technology.

The slim design of the water purifier with a 180° rotating tap makes it easier to use without taking up too much space.
