LG’s known to be working on a new 42-inch OLED TV panel, bringing the benefits of the company’s large-size OLED screens into a smaller and more affordable segment of the TV market. 

According to industry sources, as cited by KED (Korea Economic Daily), LG has delayed the launch of its 42-inch OLED TVs until early 2022, as the company plans to showcase their new TVs at CES 2022 in January. 

Shifting the launch of their 42-inch OLED TVs to 2022 will allow the company to synchronise and maximise its marketing efforts. LG’s 42-inch OLED TVs are designed to target the gaming market, offering features like 4K 120Hz support, HDMI 2.1 connectivity, and VRR support. Today’s 48-inch LG OLED TV has already proven popular amongst console gamers and many PC gamers, already offering 4K 120Hz support with VRR over HDMI 2.1. 

For many gamers, 42-inch screen sizes are more comfortable to use than larger 48-inch, 55-inch or larger screens. Beyond that, LG’s 42-inch OLED TVs are also due to ship with lower pricing than their larger counterparts. 

With lower pricing, a more comfortable screen size and support for 4K at 120Hz with VRR, LG’s 42-inch OLED screens should prove to be hugely popular to gamers across the world. With many console games supporting 120Hz on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, LG’s new HDMI 2.1 screen will be popular amongst PC gamers and console users alike. Industry officials have also reportedly claimed that LG’s new 42-inch OLED screen would be optimised for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5,  supporting Dolby Vision Gaming at 4K 120Hz.
