LG announced that it will be launching LG QNED Mini LED televisions at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021 event that is going to be held virtually from January 11 to 14, 2021. It is being considered as the next big thing in the display industry.
LG’s new range of television will feature a combination of LED backlighting, quantum dot technology and LG’s NanoCell technologies. As per the company, there would be a total of ten variants in the QNED TV range with resolutions ranging between Ultra-HD to 8K and sizes up to 86-inches.
According to LG, the top 86-inch 8K display TV would have 30,000 mini LEDs for illuminating the display, producing nearly 2500 local dimming zones and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
The new Mini LED technology uses tiny LED lights for better brightness control and allows for better contrast levels and less intense halo effects on the screen. The mini LEDs will produce peak brightness, which will enable the panel to produce better dimming levels, black levels, improved colour accuracy, and enhanced HDR.
The QNED Mini LED Television panel uses two technologies for improving color output. With the combination of the quantum dot technology and the NanoCell technology of LG, the company promises to provide a premium viewing experience that exceeds what OLED technology is capable of.
LG also states that the QNED mini LED televisions would support a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. It also states that the QNED Mini LED TV range will sit between its flagship OLED range and its more budget-oriented NanoCell models.
LG’s QNED mini LED televisions to compete against Samsung’s 110-inch MicroLED TV that was unveiled recently. However, the detailed specifications are yet to be confirmed.
