LG’s latest addition to its OLED TV family, the A1 series, starts at just $1,299. The Korean giant revealed the new lineup’s relatively cheap pricing in a press release published earlier this week, which confirmed that the 48-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 77-inch A1 models would cost $1,299, $1,599, $2,199, and $3,199, respectively. The 55-inch and 65-inch A1 models will be available in April 2021, while the 48-inch and 77-inch models are expected in June 2021.
“LG OLED TVs are designed, crafted, and engineered to put the spotlight on your content, yet complement your home’s interior even when they’re turned off,” the company wrote. “The C1 series, LG’s most popular OLED TV range, offers the most screen size options to accommodate diverse user needs and spaces, starting with the space-friendly 48-inch, all the way up to the expansive 83-inch model.”
“Both series include 4 inputs with HDMI 2.1 features such as support for 4K 120 content, VRR, ALLM and eARC making them the TV of choice for gamers and home theater enthusiasts alike. For customers who may not need all the gaming-related features but still desire great OLED picture quality, the A1 series offers four screen sizes from 48-to 77-inches.”
We suspect that LG’s new 48-inch A1 OLED TV might be priced as low as $999 during the holiday sales season, which could make the budget model a popular pick for PC gamers who have the desk space to turn it into a premium monitor. Note that LG’s entry-level A1 OLED TVs will only feature a 50/60 Hz panel and HDMI 2.0b connections, however—users who want a 100/120 Hz panel and HDMI 2.1 will need to step up to the B1 series or higher.
