While we typically focus on LG’s outstanding OLED TVs, it also has LCD panels, and for 2021 it will unveil a new line with Mini LED tech. Branded QNED, they will occupy a high-end slot in the company’s LCD line, although its flagship technology will still be represented by the various OLED series.
LG’s QNED line will come in sizes up to 86-inches, with ten models featuring 4K and 8K resolution. The Mini LED light sources could provide better lighting control and contrast than the edge lit or full-array backlighting seen in conventional TVs, although LG says its Nanocell and quantum dot is still being used in the panel itself.
In the 86-inch version that LG will feature in its “virtual booth” during the socially-distanced CES 2021 event, that adds up to more than 30,000 LED backlights, and nearly 2,500 local dimming zones.
