LG TV model numbers explained, Understanding what LG TV model numbers mean

Examples of LG Model numbers are used below to explain the meaning LG Model numbering system. In order to understand how LG Model numbering system works we explain the logic behind LG's Model numbering system. So let us take the following examples of LG Model Numbers:

  • LG Model: 65LA9700 which is a 65" Ultra High Definition 4K TV or UHDTV with resolution of 3840 x 2160
  • LG Model: 55EA9800 which is a 55" Curved OLED Smart TV with 3D
  • LG Model: 42GA6400 which is a 42" 3D 1080p LED TV with Google TV

In the examples above, it is clear that the first two places in the LG model number denotes the diagonal width of the TV screen in inches.

The letter following in the third place is the type of TV screen. For example:

  • 'C' stands for LCD TV which now looks to have been discontinued from the LG Range
  • 'E' stands for OLED TV
  • 'G' stands for Google TV enabled
  • 'L' stands for an LED TV
  • 'P' stands for a plasma TV which again seems to be out of fashion.

The next letter following in the fourth place is something to denote the quality of the screen. Three letters 'A', 'M', and 'N' are used for HD resolution of 1920x1080 and higher. These letters in LG models stand for:

  • 'A' stands for high quality picture like ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION 4K TV of resolution of 3840 x 2160. Their OLED TV is given this designation even though it is not a 4K TV but only regular HD resolution of 1920x1080
  • 'M' stands for 3D HDTV
  • 'N' stands for HD resolution of 1920x1080

Older LG TV Model Numbers

To decipher the older LG TV Model Numbers the following will be of help. Examples of older LG Model Numbers are: 50PZ850, 42LV5500, 42LW6500, 47LE4600, 22LV2130.

The first 2 Numbers stands for the diagonal size of the TV screen. The first letter after the initial two numbers is normally a 'P' or an 'L'. The 'P' stands for a Plasma TV. The 'L' stands for the screen type LCD (both LED and LCD TV have same type of LCD screens - it is only the backlight that makes it an LED or an LCD TV as explained in our Home Page).

The second letter stands for the following. We have arrived at these results by studying the LG website comparing the different models. It is not an official LG statement, just our conclusion.

  • B - 2004
  • C - 2005
  • D - 2010 LCD TV - CCFL backlight
  • E - 2010 Edge LED
  • F - 2007
  • G - 2008
  • H - 2009
  • V - 2011 Edge LED K - 2011 LCD TV - CCFL backlight
  • W - 2011 3D Edge LED with Passive Polarised Type 3D Glasses
  • X - 2010 3D LED
  • Z - 2011 3D TV with Active Shutter Type 3D Glasses

The first number after the letters stands for the following: 9 - flagship top of the range series, 8 will be the next best and 7 the next best and so on till you come to the lower numbers 4, 3 and 2 to denote budget series of TV.
