Any mention of what flavour the hdmi 2.1 will be for the new 2021 sets? i.e. 40gbps or 48gbps? Not that it matters hugely, but would be interested to know still....
Waiting for clarification on C1 vs G1. Cost contra picture quality etc.
My feeling right now is that I have to buy the G1 because little improvement for C1 vs CX.
The custom/Evo panels will go ~20% brighter, that's been covered in other articles. And in the case of the Sony A90J at least (The LG articles are light on details from LG themselves), it can boost W+R+G+B sub-pixels, whereas even the Panasonic GZ/HZ/JZ2000 models only boost the white sub-pixel, so this could be a nice upgrade for one of WRGB OLED's biggest weaknesses; colour volume. I don't expect it to suddenly fix the issue, just having the white sub-pixel there hinders volume significantly, but every little helps.
Found this scouring the web. Different words but still very ambiguous:
"The OLED evo emits light with more precise wavelength control, expressing a brighter and clearer picture quality compared to existing LG OLED screens," reports EKN.kr.
Can't see any mention of DTS on LG's US website: LG C1 48 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/AI ThinQ® (48.2'' Diag) (OLED48C1PUB) | LG USAWon't touch this unless it has Freeview Play. What about DTS? Has this also missing this year? Full fat HDMI 2.1?
However, I do like that optional stand, is this going to be available for other models?
LG's US website seems to suggest that 55" is the smallest G1:

So we have the same age old problem, do we commit now when the prices are just affordable or wait another 10/12 months for the new ones to drop in price and are the newer ones actually going to be significantly better?
Have been holding on for a 77" GX OLED which can now be had for around the £4300 mark, still very expensive but a lot more affordable that the original £6K release price.
I take it that the new G1 is the direct replacement for the existing GX? That being the case is it known if it will retain the same wall mounted fixing that is provided on the current GX's as well as the new floor stand, also what is going to be the likely release price, > £6K?
The 77 inch CX not seen that much drops. Only in December did it drop to £3500 and now can pick it up for £3300. I suspect 77 C1 will be £4999 at launch and wont see price drop below 4k until Black Friday 2021.
