After a presentation at CES 2021, it’s time to get some new information about LG’s 2021 OLED TVs (Z1, G1, C1, B1, A1 series).
LG’s 2021 OLED televisions (Z1, G1, C1, B1 series) were unveiled during CES 2021. Even though this event was digital, we were able to discover remotely the new range of TVs that will be marketed in 2021.
We now know the recommended prices and the availability dates of these models. G1, C1 and B1 ranges should be available from April 2021. While the Z1 range will be marketed the following month, in May 2021.
Tariffs for LG OLED Z1, G1, C1 and B1
As you can see in the table below, few surprises regarding the prices when compared with the OLED range of 2020. The C1 range is undoubtedly the one that offers the best value for money, we find the new Alpha 9 Gen 4 AI 4K as well as new features including webOS 6.0 interface and new remote control. However, this C1 range will compete directly with the CX range with lower prices and few differences.

You will also have noticed that LG’s OLED TV is now offered at an unprecedented diagonal. After the 48 “, 55”, 65 “, 77” and 88 inches, there is now a size of 83 inches (211 cm). Offered in the C1 range, you will have to pay twice the price of a 55-inch C1.
If you want something new in 2021, you will have to go to the LG G1 which sports the Evo suffix this year. This corresponds to the presence of the new high-brightness panel with a peak light around 1000 nits. LG’s goal is in fact to offer panels with similar performance to the Professional Edition Oled panels from Panasonic since 2019. The G stands for Gallery, you can hang your TV like a picture flat on the wall. As for the Z1 range, they are OLED TVs in 8K definition with a very successful design.
Like every year, the generation of the previous year is arguably the best alternative to these OLED TVs of 2021. With lower prices, the OLED TVs of 2020 have little to envy the TVs of 2021.
LG OLED A1 are long overdue
Finally, the only unknowns are therefore the prices of the A1 range. This range is interesting because it clashes with cheaper LCD TVs.
However, some compromises will have to be made. Indeed, the LG A1 offers a refresh rate limited to 60 Hz and also no HDMI 2.1 connection. In short, models to avoid if you have a PS5 or an Xbox Series X under your television. Despite less efficient video processing and a less successful design, the LG OLED A1s could still be an alternative to LCD TVs to consider.
