But what exactly does lg electronics have planned for its new entry level oled, and why should you care lg makes some of the best and most popular oled televisions made today: it’s cx oled from 2020 comfortably topped our best oled tv guide and the step down b. Series has long been a smart choice for those wanting a premium picture at a more accessible price point it’s curious to see an even cheaper, a series model released then, and smart shoppers will be looking to it for oled at an even more affordable price. With a few compromises, no doubt there’s little firm information to go on so far, but we’ve rounded up what we do know in this concise, guide and we’ll be sure to update and expand it. As lg reveals more about its new a1 oled tv. The most important thing to know is that the lga1 oled will be the lowest spec and therefore cheapest, oled tv put out by lg this year. Much sounds similar to last year’s b series with a step down a 7 processor rather than the 9 gen 4 ai chip used in the c1 and g1 oleds, the a7 isn’t quite as advanced. Hence the price drop and tends to lead to more banding and video noise in dark scenes, but it still makes for a generally favorable picture. We also know that the a1 will support dolby vision, hdr and dolby atmos audio and come with 20 w of built in audio.
The two key differences between the a series and b series seems to be that the former is a bit quieter and doesn’t support. Hdmi 2.1, a feature you will find in the lg bx and this year’s new c1 and g1 models. Hdmi 2.1 is needed for a host of gamer centric features like 4k slash 120 hertz gameplay, as well as vrr variable refresh rate. So the a1 probably won’t, be a tv of choice for those hoping to get max performance out of their ps5 or xbox series x. There’S no confirmed pricing thus far, but we can glean some helpful info by comparing, with the price tag of last year’s, bx oled, which was the cheapest 2020 lg oled costing 1 ‘9 for the 55 inch model and hundred and ninety nine dollars for the 65 inch At launch, if we assume the a series is going to be even more competitively priced along with the option of a 48 inch model, we could be looking at a launch price of around one thousand dollars in the us and uk for its smallest size. With that price likely to drop a few months after launch, this is speculation, of course, and lg was a bit funny about pricing for its 48 inch size last year, we’re expecting to see some real value here for an oled tv, though there’s no confirmed release date Either the last year’s cx and gx models launched around mid 2020 and new tv ranges tend to kick into gear april.
Slash, may lg does tend to wait until around august september to release its budget b series, but the fact that we’ve heard about the a1 already suggests we’ll be getting it sooner rather than later. Lg tells us that the a1 oled will be releasing in four different screen. Sizes 48 inch 55 inch, 65 inch and 77 inch. The company is going all in on this set, then given last year’s, bx wasn’t available in a 77 inch model or the recently introduced 48 inch oled size. There are more screen sizes for oled, releasing this year. Of course, with a new 83 inch size that will come to the lg c1 we’ve heard from lg display the panel supplier for lg electronics, oled televisions that a new 42 inch oled is on its way to, though it’s, yet to be confirmed for any specific 2021 Tvs for those not with lg lingo, the a1 is the specific product number applied to this year’s a series oled the letter.
