The QNED Mini TV LED TV combines quantum dot and NanoCell technology to produce what LG says are incredibly accurate colors with advanced LED backlight offering better contrast and deeper blacks for images, but they are still not OLEDs.

“Our new QNED series is a premium home entertainment option that expands and improves the LCD TV space and gives consumers seeking to upgrade their viewing experience another terrific choice,” said Nam Ho-jun, senior vice president of R&D at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.
“These TVs deliver an experience that sets them apart from other LCD TVs through stunningly life-like images that seem to shed the confines of the screen and enter the user’s space. This speaks to our commitment to innovation and pushing the standard forward.”
LG will officially unveil the QNED Mini TV LED TVs at the upcoming CES 2021
CES is an annual event organized by the Consumer Technology Association showcasing the latest innovations in gadgets and appliances. This year’s edition will be virtually held on January 11 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The QNED Mini TV LED TV will be available in the Kenyan market from the second half of 2020.
LG says Incorporating quantum dot and NanoCell technologies with Mini LEDs as the light source makes the QNED Mini LED TV’s brightness and contrast far superior to that of conventional LCD televisions.
In 2021, LG will release 10 new 4K and 8K models covering a wide range of large screen size up to 86 inches.
The TVs offer a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, up to 30,000 tiny LEDs to produce incredible peak brightness, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, 2,500 dimming zones, and advanced local dimming technology for the 86-inch 8K QNED.
This results in excellent HDR image quality with outstanding contrast and blacks, a wide color gamut, and incredible color accuracy. LG’s top-of-the-line 86-inch 8K QNED TV will be on display in LG’s virtual exhibition booth during CES 2021.
LG launched the industry’s first 4K OLED TVs in 2014, followed by a new range of OLED TVs with curved, flat, and flexible displays in 2015.
OLED’s dominance in the premium TV category is underscored by superior technology involving self-lighting pixels, independent dimming control, and lack of backlighting which significantly enhances the picture quality.
