LG details new QNED MiniLED 2021 TV range

Not as good as an OLED... but not as expensive, either.

LG Australia has recently detailed its QNED Mini LED 2021 range of televisions, offering what the company calls “a premium LED/LCD viewing experience”.

This year’s range includes one 4K and two 8K series, with screen sizes ranging from 65″ to 85″.

“First showcased earlier this year, the LG QNED MiniLED TV lineupis the company’s premium LED/LCD TV range that combines the power of Mini LED panels with Quantum Dot and NanoCell technologiesto deliver improved blacks, more accurate colour reproduction and great contrast,” LG said in a press release.

“Furthermore, the LG QNED MiniLED TV range offers a sleek and slim exterior, optimised for wall mounting and set to enhance any home interior.”

In a press briefing, LG representatives compared QNED technology to OLED, admitting that the latter is superior in most ways. QNED tech features thousands of MiniLEDs that can be lit or dimmed when delivering visuals. The technology means QNEDs offer a brighter screen than an OLED; conversely, it also means that QNEDs cannot deliver perfect blacks like OLEDs can simply by turning individual pixels off.

While QNED screens are cheaper than OLED screens, they’re also blurrier and a touch laggier. Those serious about gaming would likely be better suited with an OLED.

QNEDs win in terms of pricing when compared to OLEDs, however, with the QNED MiniLED 2021 TV range priced as follows:

QNED99 8K

  • 86-inch $10,799 AUD
  • 75-inch $7,799 AUD
  • 65-inch $5,759 AUD

QENED96 8K

  • 75-inch $5,999 AUD
  • 65-inch $4,799 AUD

QNED91 4K

  • 86-inch $8,399 AUD
  • 75-inch $5,999 AUD
  • 65-inch $4,679 AUD

In terms of gaming applications, it’s worth noting that while some current-gen consoles say that can deliver 8K video, we’ve not seen any games going above 4K. Plan accordingly?
