LG asserts that it has brought the "ultimate" slew of updates to its premium TV offerings to CES 2021. The OEM has even invented a new sub-category for this year: QNED, a combination of its mini-LED and Quantum NanoCell Color technologies. As for the OLEDs, the 48-inch C1 has already won a Best of Innovation Award at the show.

LG has already teased cutting-edge new transparent and bendable displays for the purposes of CES 2021; however, it has also not neglected its more conventional TVs during its showcase. It outlined the company's plans to release new OLED, NanoCell and QNED products this year.

They include the new G1 series, made with the latest OLED evo panels, which are apparently associated with "better luminosity for bright and punchy images with amazing clarity, detail and realism". The OEM also revealed that the C1 series will debut in 2021 in SKUs ranging from the Best of Innovation Award-winning 48C1 to an 83-inch top-end model.

LG will underpin their series' claimed approval rate among gamers with a 1-millisecond (ms) response time and Game Optimizer, along with G-SYNC and FreeSync Premium compatible and a variable refresh rate (VRR).

The 2021 OLEDs will also feature the latest webOS 6.0 UI, powered by LG's new Alpha 9 Gen 4 AI processor, which will manage the screens' image quality intelligently based on the content to be displayed. They will also have AI Sound Pro features for their virtual 5.1.2 surround sound.

Then again, the QNED99, QNED95, NANO95 and NANO99 SKUs will also have this processor, as well as Game Optimizer. Meanwhile, the QNED90 and NANO90 will also benefit from VRR.

The higher-end NanoCell and QNED units will also share the HDMI 2.1 support with the OLED TVs, while the entire new range will get enhanced audio return channel (eARC) and an automatic low latency mode (ALLM).

LG has yet to specify when and where exactly all of these new TVs will be available, although it has already released enough detail to chew over for those considering a new big screen in 2021.
