The new LG Gram 2023 promises 20hr battery
LG has introduced an expanded LG Gram lineup for 2023 offering more diversity. The new offerings are the Gram Ultraslim and Gram Style.
The lineup features new gram 17, 16, 15, and 14 laptops (models 17Z90R, 16Z90R, 15Z90R, and 14Z90R); each providing the brand’s signature combination of strong performance and light, compact design. This besides its new-for-2023 Ultraslim and Style
Speaking while making the announcement ahead of the exhibition, LG Electronics senior vice president and head of the IT business unit Seo Young-jae said, “LG gram, being a leading brand in the ultra-lightweight laptop market for the last decade will continue to introduce new form factors to meet the changing needs and tastes of consumers worldwide. We welcome the arrival of the brand-new gram Ultraslim and gram Style, even as the 2023 LG gram lineup gets more diverse”.
Headlining the LG gram showcase at CES 2023 is the brand-new LG gram Ultraslim (model 15Z90RT), the thinnest gram model yet. A laptop designed for users seeking supreme portability, the Ultraslim has an ultra-light weight of just 998 grams and a depth (when closed) of only 10.99 millimeters; around the same thickness of a smartphone or notepad.
Besides being the most svelte gram in the 2023 lineup, the 15Z90RT still supplies impressive image quality and processing power, packing a 15.6-inch OLED display with Anti-glare Low Reflection (AGLR) coating and Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake chip with Performance Cores (P-Cores). Further enhancing the excellent portability of the new model is the inclusion of an ultra-compact adapter.
In terms of Style, the LG gram laptops, offered in 16- and 14-inch versions (models 16Z90RS and 14Z90RS) have been created for people who love to express their unique style wherever they go. Both gram Style models sport an elegant glass design that makes each of the available color options shine and shift dynamically; moving and changing depending on the light and angle. The focus on design continues inside the new grams where a ‘hidden’ haptic touchpad with soft LED backlighting illuminates at the user’s touch.
Despite the attention to aesthetics, LG gram Style laptops deliver far more than just good looks. Each has a 16:10, OLED Anti-Glare Low Reflection display with a high refresh rate, and features an Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake P-Core CPU and a Gen4 NVMe™ solid-state drive (SSD).
Like all other models in the diverse 2023-gram lineup, the 16Z90RS and 14Z90RS support Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI connectivity and offer atmospheric audio with Dolby Atmos, which is new to LG gram this year.
Great for productivity and entertainment, the latest 17- and 16-inch grams are equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce™ RTX 3050 4GB Laptop GPU, Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake P – Core CPU, and a Gen4 NVMe™ SSD.
Each of the new models weighs in at less than 1.45 kilograms – despite having a large battery2 that can handle more than 20 hours of video playback on a single charge3 – and comes with the same conveniently compact adapter included with the gram Ultraslim.
LG’s newest grams also boast superb picture quality, with all models employing an IPS panel with anti-glare coating. New for this year, variable refresh rate (VRR)4 support will enable LG gram users to enjoy seamless, tear- and stutter-free graphics when gaming, while the arrival of Dolby Atmos will deliver immersive audio that helps bring movies, music and games to life.
LG gram 2-in-1 and +view for LG gram also welcome upgraded models for 2023. The new 2-in-1, which comes in 16- and 14-inch sizes (models 16T90R and 14T90R), gives users the freedom to switch from laptop to tablet, or vice versa, whenever they choose.
Along with its 4-way super-slim bezel design and sturdy yet slim aluminum frame, the latest ‘convertible’ gram boasts a suite of pre-installed note taking and drawing applications optimized for use with the LG Stylus Pen (Wacom AES 2.0).
Meanwhile, LG’s portable monitor, +view for LG gram (model 16MR70) lets users double their screen real estate and enjoy easier multitasking wherever they go. Enhanced for the new year, the latest version of LG’s portable screen solution features dual USB Type-C™ ports, enabling users to connect to two devices simultaneously and enjoy the convenience of two-way power delivery.
The new LG gram lineup will be launching globally starting from next month in Korea.
