In the first decade of the new millennium, television manufacturers primarily focused on size, leading to the square footage of the average home’s TV steadily increasing year after year, though more recently tech companies have transitioned to focus on clarity, color, and resolution, as well as smart tech. This has ultimately given way to a wide array of more and more cutting-edge LCD and LED screens, and despite the bar already being set incredibly high, South Korea’s LG has managed to once again push the envelope in the modern TV sector with the debut of its new “QNED Mini LED” TV.
The QNED Mini offers a fairly unparalleled viewing experience with an impressive 1,000,000:1. contrast ratio, bolstered HDR quality, a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, and nearly 2,500 dimming zones. The Seoul firm has accomplished this through the use of almost 30,000 tiny LED lights embedded behind the display, and by utilizing LG’s existing NanoCell and quantum dot tech. Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed, though LG has confirmed the QNED Mini—one of ten 8K and 4K TV models coming down the pipe–is slated for a release later in 2021, and will be offered in sizes of up to 86 inches.
