LG Display has given some details about the OLED panels that will be shipping to TV manufacturers this year. The lineup includes a 42-inch panel, still the smallest TV-sized OLED from LG Display, as well as a new 83-inch panel, similar to the Bravia lineup that Sony unveiled a few days ago.
This means that this year’s OLED TVs will be available in 42, 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 and 88 inch sizes. LG Display says it will ship a 77-inch “next-generation” dashboard that is about 20 percent more efficient and brighter than before. This is a relative disadvantage of OLED TVs so far.
LG Display is a component manufacturer and does not release consumer products, so it is not clear who will actually sell the 42-inch TV this year. Large LG Electronics has not yet unveiled its 2021 range of OLED TVs, but according to a report by Yonhap, it will use the “OLED evo” brand for new panels in the 2021 “G1” series.
LG Display has already made headlines this year at Virtual CES, a “smart bed” concept with a transparent OLED panel that rises out of the base and can be switched from a flat screen TV to a curved gaming monitor with a 48-inch flexible panel.
