LG’s German branch has revealed the pricing and availability of its 2021 OLED TVs, which comprise B1, C1, G1, and Z1 models, as well as the all-new, budget A1 series. The cost of the A1 lineup actually remains a mystery, but we do now know that one of the cheaper entry points will come in the form of the 55-inch B1 model, which has been listed for €1800. That comes out to around $2,100.
“LG’s first 83-inch OLED TV, in the C1 range, will cost 8000 Euro and be available in June, but the good news is that the 77-inch C1 will drop to 5300 Euro (starting price was 7000 Euro last year for CX),” FlatpanelsHD noted in its coverage. “A less expensive 77-inch OLED TV will be available in the B1 range, at 5000 Euro. LG B1 and LG C1 will be available in April (except the 83-inch C1).”
“[…] 2021 OLED TVs are equipped with new features such as Game Optimizer along with a 1 millisecond response time, low input lag and four ports supporting the latest HDMI specifications,” LG explained in a press release. […] For exhilarating big-screen gaming with stutter- and tear-free images, LG OLED TVs are G-SYNC Compatible, FreeSync Premium supported and feature variable refresh rate (VRR), all of which can be managed within the Game Optimizer.”
Not surprisingly, LG’s flagship Z1 8K OLED TVs remain out of reach for users who don’t have deep pockets. The 77-inch and 88-inch models are listed for €20,000 and €30,000, which translate to around $24,000 and $36,000, respectively. Upscaling in LG’s 2021 OLED TVs will be handled by the new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 4 AI processor.
