Pickup LG’s new 2022 Gram laptop at launch and get bonus View+ display as a gift

LG Electronics Australia (LG) has announced the local release of its refreshed 2022 LG gram range of premium laptops. Ideal for a wide variety of users, the new models continue the company’s legacy of supreme portability with sleek, ultra-light designs while adopting innovative software and the latest hardware to deliver even more power and convenience.  

The latest LG gram laptops deliver compact, ultra-lightweight designs without sacrificing performance. With a slim bezel design, each model offers an excellent screen-to-body ratio. On top of that, all 2022 LG gram products ship in eco-conscious packaging that presents thoughtful reusability after unboxing – cleverly converting to a desk calendar and pencil holder. 

The 2022 lineup in the traditional ‘clamshell’ design features six new models: one new LG gram 17-inch (17Z90Q) model, three new LG gram 16-inch (16Z90Q) models and two new LG gram 14-inch (14Z90Q) models.  

At launch and exclusive to LG.com/au, purchasers of the LG gram 16-inch (16799Q-GAA78A) will receive the gram View+ display as a gift with purchase, valued at $599 RRP. 

The View+ for LG gram is a portable 16-inch monitor with detachable cover that connects via USB-C, enabling users to extend the digital workspace.  

Each new LG gram laptop provides powerful performance backed by a 12th Gen Intel Core processor, an upgrade from the previous 11th Gen processor. This year’s laptops have also been upgraded to the latest Gen4 NVMe SSD and employ low-voltage LPDDR5 RAM to achieve a performance boost compared to 2021 LG gram models. 

Intel Evo Platform certified, the 2022 LG gram laptops deliver long battery life, giving users the freedom to work, or play, wherever their day takes them.  

The software and hardware refresh on the LG gram laptops are a testament to our dedication to providing an optimised user experience. LG has placed emphasis on performance and productivity to ensure consumers can do it all on their LG gram.

These products are truly a versatile solution and are ideal for a dynamic worker who is looking to upgrade how they do their day-to-day tasks.”

Brad Reed, Head of B2B Marketing (Solutions for Business) at LG Electronics Australia. 

The premium LG laptops are synonymous with superb picture quality, and its newest offerings serve as a strong reminder of why. Featuring 16:10 aspect ratio, WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution IPS panels, the new LG gram laptops provide sharp, vibrant images with high brightness, 99% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, and plenty of screen real estate to meet users’ diverse productivity and entertainment needs. What’s more, the advanced LG IPS displays are now anti-glare, reducing distracting reflections and making it easier for users to see what they’re working on, regardless of ambient light conditions. 

2022 LG gram laptops elevate the user experience with LG Glance by Mirametrix, an innovative software solution that enhances security and convenience. LG Glance by Mirametrix automatically locks the screen if the user steps away from their laptop.5 It also alerts the user and blurs the content they are working on if someone is peeking at the screen from over their shoulder. 

Conveniently, if a separate monitor is connected, the mouse cursor and the window currently being used will automatically move to whichever screen the user is looking at. Additionally, this year’s models offer an optimised environment for video conferencing with features such as face log-in, noise-cancelling and a built-in Full HD webcam, perfect for hybrid working.
