LG has announced that it will be revealing its first-ever QNED mini LED TV lineup during the virtual session of CES 2021, along with its other premium LCD TV lineups for next year. Chief among its new lineup is an 86-inch model that supports resolutions of up to 8K.
For those among you wondering what QNED stands for, according to LG’s official press release, the “N” in the acronym refers to its NanoCell technology. To that end, it’s not wrong to say that its QNED lineup will be one of the world’s first TVs to merge both its NanoCell and Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology into one single panel.
Combined with LG’s Mini LED backlighting technology, the 86-inch QNED panel will support resolutions of up to 8K, house up to 30000 tiny LEDs with a contrast ratio of 1000000:1, paired with up to 25000 dimming zones and a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, the latter presumably restricted to just 4K resolution at most. Oh, and they also support HDR.
Some of you already know that this isn’t LG’s first time dabbling in the realm of 8K. Earlier this year, the company introduced its NanoCell 8K TV during CES 2020, before officially bringing the TV into Malaysia in August.
