“Obviously LG wants to use the new small OLED screen to bolster next year’s TV lineup for marketing reasons,” said a source close to the industry.
Most likely, the smallest OLED lineup will be showcased at the upcoming CES 2022. It is expected to be positioned as a gaming TV with support for HDMI 2.1 and other gaming features.
Recall that the current range of LG OLED screens consists of six sizes – 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 and 88 inches. Almost all of them (except for the A series) are capable of playing a 4K / 120Hz signal in HDR10 and Dolby Vision, and also support HDMI 2.1 and the accompanying HDMI VRR, AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync functions.
In addition to the new 42-inch size, it was previously reported about plans to release even more compact 20-30-inch LG OLED TVs.
