The new TVs will officially be called LG QNED Mini LED TVs, and Mini LED technology is said to be even better than OLED in some regards.
The company is well-known for quality OLED TVs, but Mini LED technology is said to be even better than OLED in some regards (and definitely superior to plain old LCD), so LG is dipping its toes into those waters as well.
The new TVs will officially be called LG QNED Mini LED TVs, and I bet it will leave many customers scratching their heads. Samsung is also expected to bring Mini LED backlighting to its LCD panels in 2021. We know that Samsung is also likely set to announce their consumer MiniLED TVs at CES next week as well (MicroLED is probably set to be a little while away yet). In the coming year, starting from CES 2021, you will see LG launch a number of QNED TVs in up to 86-inch diagonals, with 4K and 8K panels, and 120Hz refresh rates.
Currently, most LCD televisions use LED lighting to light the display from behind.
To address this, Mini LED technology uses smaller LED lights, and many more of them, to offer more precise control over which areas of a TV screen are illuminated and which are plunged into darkness. Thanks to Mini LED tech, the TVs will have nearly 30,000 tiny LEDs for backlighting, which means better contrast and deeper blacks. In the case of LG’s QNED implementation a screen will have nearly 30,000 LEDs providing peak contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1, working in tandem with up to 2,400 dimming zones and advanced dimming zones. LG has made this possible by creating a new backlight, which “comprises up to nearly 30,000 tiny LEDs that produce incredible peak brightness and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 when paired with up to 2,500 dimming zones and advanced local dimming zones”.
LG has teased its QNED line of Mini LED TVs ahead of CES next week.
This results in better contrast than a regular LED-backlit screen, improved HDR capabilities, and better color accuracy.
