Stadia Coming to LG Smart TVs in Late 2021

You might think OLED TVs are in a tight spot with Samsung Neo QLED and TCL Mini LED TVs coming to market soon, but LG is here to show you its emissive displays still have a few new tricks.

The new G1 series follows on from LG's announcement of QNED Mini LED TVs plus LG Display's announcement of a new 42-inch panel. No doubt the price point there is more "for Cashius MoMoneyius only" - but the G1 series is set to feature the Evo panels which ramp up the brightness to essentially eliminate the one area where OLED panels can seem to fall behind the competition.

The Z1, G1, and C1 models will also feature LG's new Alpha9 Gen 4 image signal processor, also found on the company's QNED99, QNED95, NANO99, and NANO 95 LCD models.

All jokes aside, the reason why it, along with GeForce NOW are being launched late this year as opposed to day and date with these new TVs probably has something to do with how each native app is being built to interact with LG's own software - Web OS. AI Picture Pro removes noises and optimizes picture quality, and it can use scene detection to improve picture quality based on the scenes you're watching. Larger-sized LG Electronics hasn't fully unveiled its 2021 OLED TV lineup, however According to a report in Yonhap, "OLED evo" brand will be used for new panels in the 2021 "G1" series. I'm not going to list the specifications of new models.

LG is one of the leaders in OLED display technology, but it's mostly been limited to TVs for the living room thus far.

LG's OLED line up for 2021. Recently, the Android app has been updated with support for more devices, and it looks like it's expanding beyond Android TV with webOS support.

An Auto Volume Leveling feature - part of a new version of LG's AI Sound Pro - ensures a consistent level of volume when switching between channels or streaming apps.

There's also support for HDMI 2.1 on the new OLED TVs with eARC for high-end audio in external sound systems, while the new slate of televisions also support Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound.
