There are new and improved features in LG's 2018 TV lineup, and the prominent ones among these features are Alpha 9 Processor, LG ThinQ AI and FALD. There is also an introduction of Active HDR into the 1080p (LK) series.
Furthermore, except its OLED TVs that are denoted by "8", all other LG's 2018 TVs can be recognized by the letter "K" at the third position of their model numbers. More on LG TVs year, model & serial no.

Alpha 9 Processor: Is the current LG TVs fastest video processor, twice faster than the most GPU (+CPU) found in other makers' high-end TVs. The addition of the Alpha 9 processor indicates that, those LG TVs with this processor will deliver smoother fast-paced videos i.e. TVs with better motion handling capability. This is the reason LG claims that the Alpha 9 was designed to easily support and handle High Frame Rate (HFR) broadcasts such as native 4k/120 fps content streaming. Apart from motion handling, Alpha 9 processor has twice capability, more than that of most TV processors to handle noise reduction. Therefore, Alpha 9 significantly reduces artifacts that still affect many TVs, even the most expensive ones, and this means the processor enables the LG TVs to display clearer and more detailed image. Furthermore, the giant TV maker also said that the processor brings about improvements to the overall colour performance of its TVs.
Note: Alpha 7 is the predecessor of the Alpha 9 processor. However, Alpha 9 processor is much more powerful than Alpha 7. Unlike Alpha 9, Alpha 7 processor doesn't have ability to handle HFR, 4K & HDR altogether, it has to let go of the first one for the other two.

Al-Driven Features: LG equipped most of its 2018 Smart TV models with  Artificial Intelligence Driven features, and this functionality is based on LG ThinQ platform. Therefore, with the assistance of voice-activated technology i.e Natural Language Processing (NLP), you can speak to your TV, especially through remote control, for instance, by saying words like "search for the soundtrack of this movie" or "turn off the TV when the program is over". Also, via these voice-activated commands you can access and control Google Assistant on your TV which is currently being embedded in the webOS.

ThinQ: ThinQ is the LG brand name for its Smart and Premium products (mobile and home appliances) with AI-driven features. All the LG products with this code name (ThinQ) will be able to connect and communicate with one another under one AI assisted platform. In particular, LG smart TV, will be able to access, connect and communicate with other AI-driven (ThinQ) home and mobile devices such as smartphones, air conditioners, dishwashers, and so on. And these devices will be able to connect and communicate through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Full Array Local Deeming (FALD): For years now, many TV makers have been adopting FALD in some of their top of the range models, and LG has also made use of it in the past. However, LG reintroduced FALD in some selected models of its 2018 TV line-up, most especially the Super UHD Models i.e. the models with {Nano cell display} [blue],apart from the FALD, these models are also equipped with Alpha 7 processor in order for them to deliver picture quality close to that of OLED TV models.

What is FALD?: Basically, almost all of the average LED TV are edge-lit, i.e the LEDs are placed around the edges of the back of the TV panel, but such TVs don't have ability to display perfect deep black especially around white or bright object. In order words, such TV deep black level around prominent white (bright) objects are always compromised. For instance, a picture from the scene of full Moon at night. To address this issue i.e to achieve almost perfect deep black around bright object(s) without loosing the contrast of the bright object, LED TV with FALD have their LEDs placed directly behind its screen panel instead of edge.

Introduction of HDR to 1080p TVs: In 2017 LG TV Lineup, HDR can only be found in 4k or UHD models, surprisingly, LG announced that the HDR can now be found in its year 2018 1080p (LK series) TVs.

Apart from the above new and improved features, almost all the specs of 2017 can still be found in the 2018 line up. Check here for all breakdown specs and features of LG TVs.
