The BX series is the entry-level option in LG's 2020 4K OLED smart TV lineup. Powered by α7 Gen3 rather than the α9 Gen3 processor found in higher-end models, LG BX offers fewer image and audio processing features. It has an OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate. Like all LG TVs, the BX runs LG's WebOS smart platform.

The LG BX OLED is the entry-level TV in LG's 2020 4k OLED lineup. It sits below the LG CX OLED and it replaces the LG B9 OLED from 2019. Like all OLED TVs, the BX has an infinite contrast ratio since it can turn off individual pixels, resulting in perfect blacks. It has an incredible response time, but it's not as good as some other OLED TVs.

Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
The LG BX is one of the cheapest OLED TVs on the planet. It uses the brand's third-generation Alpha 7 image processor. It benefits from the same onboard smart TV platform, plus ThinQ AI. The 55-inch LG OLED55BX tested here officially retails for £1,199/$1,499, but is now available for much less. If you want to supersize, it also comes in a 65-inch screen size, but again you won't need to pay that much.

The LG BX OLED is the cheapest 2020 LG OLED TV, at just $1,199 / £1,099 / AU$2,995 for a 55-inch model. It offers the same picture advantages as its predecessor, including excellent color vibrance, deep blacks and contrast. LG TVs makes use of the webOS smart TV platform, which is one of the best interfaces around today. Navigation is a treat, thanks to the set of the LG Magic Remote, as well as LG's implementation of voice recognition.

The 55-inch LG BX delivers an impressive 4K picture with excellent HDR support. Like its other OLED brethren, the bars around letterbox movies are inky black. The BX lacks some more advanced video processing that is offered in the company's more expensive models.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The LG BX is the Korean brand's OLED honeypot flatscreen. It sports a third-gen Alpha 7 processor, albeit with AI smarts to enhance clarity and improve the user experience. LG's much-lauded webOS smart platform enjoys an AI upgrade and comes with a full fist of streaming services, but there's no Freeview Play.
