Last month, LG officially took the posts from the 2021 TV series during the CES 2021 virtual event, and now the company is announcing the beginning of their global launch. It includes the new high-end LCD line with QNED 4K and 8K TVs that combine quantum dot tech with Mini LED backlighting, and an interesting set of OLED options for the new year.
At the end of the OLED TVs, the G1 series includes OLED evo panel technology that should have better brightness and white than we have seen before, while the regular C1 line includes options ranging from 48 to 83 inches in size. For many people, however, the more interesting elements are at the low end, where the B1 and A1 options can make OLED TVs available from lower prices than ever before.
We still do not have all the details about these cheaper sets, but every TV in the 2021 series, including the A1, includes eARC and ALLM features, even though they do not have HDMI 2.1. We also have a picture of the A1 that we did not get before (shown above), so if you are planning to buy one, make sure you have room for the large distance on the stand.
The first 2021 LG OLED and LCD TVs will roll out this quarter, although where and when is still unannounced. The question of how much some of them will cost is still unanswered for US buyers, although LG has announced prices for some models in Germany.
FlatpanelerHD points out that the C1 and G1 models are set to roll out in April, with delivery of the A1 series later. Prices in Europe for a 55-inch C1 and G1 are set at € 2000 and € 2400 respectively. They convert to $ 2,420 and $ 2,914, but US prices will certainly be lower. What may be more remarkable is that the prices are € 200 and € 100 higher than where similar 2020 models started, although we have to wait for an official MSRP to know what is transferred when these models arrive in the US.
