LG Gram 2021 refresh launched with Tiger Lake processors, three colour options and a new 16-inch model
The LG Gram series for 2021 is here, and it contains many revisions from this year's models. The South Korean company unveiled the laptops via a livestream today, which you can view below. The video is almost entirely in Korean, but it does show the trio of new laptops that LG will be selling under its Gram brand. Additionally, LG has published datasheets for the Gram 2021 series, which we have included below.
LG has equipped its Gram laptops with Intel 11th Generation processors, with the Core i5-1135G7 available to all models. The LG Gram 14Z90P must make do with only a Core i5 processor, with LG reserving the Core i7-1165G7 for the Gram 16Z90P and Gram 17Z90P. Additionally, the latter two machines can be configured with up to 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD, but only 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD will be headed to the Gram 14Z90P.
Undoubtedly, the biggest change for the Gram series is the arrival of a 16-inch model. The Gram 16Z90P replaces the 15.6-inch from this year, bringing with it a 16:10 aspect ratio that previously was exclusive to the LG Gram 17. The Gram 16Z90P will have a 2,560 x 1,600 native resolution too, which is an upgrade from the 1080p panel of the current LG Gram 15. Moreover, the Gram 16Z90P has a 55% larger trackpad than its predecessor. The new Gram has also received dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, as have the new Gram 14 and Gram 17.
You can view the full specifications of the new Gram 14, Gram 16 and Gram 17 below. The trio will be available in black and white, while the 16-inch and 17-inch versions will also be sold in silver. It is unclear when LG plans to announce the Gram 2021 series globally, but they will be purchasable in South Korea from January 2021.
