Although LG has recently bid farewell to the mobile phone market, the TV segment still remains the industry leader. This month will launch its first consumer Mini LED TVs (QNED), which the company announced last December. The televisions will offer improved peak brightness and contrast ratio compared to other LCD TVs, while being lower in price than OLEDs.

Additionally, Samsung is one of the few TV manufacturers that has recently adopted Mini LED products. These models should not be confused with the expensive MicroLED, which is similar to OLEDs in that it is self-illuminating without backlighting. Mini-LED technology is also found in the latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro and laptops like the upcoming Acer Predator Helios 500.

LG’s app, which it calls Quantum Nanocell Mini LED (QNED), works the same as competing TV manufacturers. The mini-LED backlight consists of up to 2,500 dimming zones and approximately 30,000 tiny LEDs that, when paired with advanced local dimming technology, produce incredible peak brightness and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. LG states that these figures are for the 86-inch 8K model.

The mini-LEDs provide “incredible” color accuracy, as well as a wide color gamut providing high contrast (10x better than regular LCD TVs), deep blacks and excellent HDR picture quality. However, LG states that QNED is not on the same level as OLED TVs, so 8K versions of larger models are more affordable, although expensive.

Refresh rates for LG Mini LED TV models range from 60Hz to 120Hz. However, only 4K models have Variable Refresh Rates (VRR). Each of these new sedollars also includes HDMI 2.1 ports. In this context, LG’s new models are good options for PS5/XBSX players. Additionally, the models support HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision HDR along with Dolby Atmos. The a7 Gen 4 AI processor is used for the 4K models, and the Premium a9 Gen 4 AI processor is used in the 8K models.

LG’s 4K QNED TVs start at $1,999 for the 65-inch model, the 75-inch model is $2,999, the 86-inch model is $3,999, the 65-inch 8K TV is $3,499, the 75-inch model is $4,799 and finally the 86-inch 8K QNED $6,499.

The 4K QNED90 and 8K QNED99 models are launching in North America this month and will begin rolling out to other regions in a few weeks. Finally, it is not yet clear how our country’s price will be.
