LG’s brand new QNED TV series is about to be released globally starting July. The new bit about those TVs is the Mini-LED backlighting combiled with LG’s Quantum Dot NanoCell tech, which is still based on the QLED types of panels like Samsung’s QLED series. Optimization and implementation is what sets them apart.
The LG QNED TVs will come in several flavors – 8K QNED99, QNED95 and 4K QNED90. They all take advantage of the Mini-LED backlight boasting far more granular local dimming and better HDR capabilities than their standard LCD TV counterparts. The 86-inch 8K TV from LG, for example, features around 2,500 local dimming zones achieved through 30,000 separate, small LEDs.
The QNED series will be offered from 65″ to 86″ and will start their release with North America and move onto other markets throughout July.
