LG’s First 42-Inch OLED TV Delayed Until 2022
LG’s first ever 42-inch OLED TV has been delayed until 2022.
The gaming television was announced earlier this year, and was intended as part of LG’s 2021 TV lineup, but failed to materialise along with the rest of the range.
Korean Economic Daily reports LG “will likely showcase the 42-inch model suitable for gaming during the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January,” which makes sense, timing wise.
“Apparently, LG wants to add the model to next year’s TV lineup to maximise its marketing efforts rather than unveiling it later this year”, an industry source told the paper.
Considering the TV is optimised for next-gen consoles, which many potential users haven’t been able to get their hands on, this might just be a savvy move by LG. The 42-incher is expected to feature HDMI 2.1 connections, 4K support at 120Hz, VRR and ALLM, and low input lag.
