NEWS: Panasonic unveils JX940, JX850 and JX800 LED TVs for 2021

Struggling to get my head around the various differences from the 2020 HZ lineup - JX940 sounds like an evolution of the HX940 IPS set dropping the 43" size but gaining HDMI 2.1 ("game mode extreme"?). Looks as though they've dropped the IPS HX900. Instead there's the JX850 and JX800 which both sound like variations on the VA HX800. Multiple processor/software variations between the three - the JX800 loses Atmos but is the only set with Android (and therefore a decent app selection - ?!). Do the 850 and 800 get any HDMI 2.1 ports? New remote as well

edit. HDMI 2.1 on all of the OLEDs but only the JX940 in LCD.

Odd that the press release states there will be a 49 JX940 but it is not on the Panasonic website ?

Interestingly, the Japanese variant of 43 inch JX850 comes with 4k120Hz refresh rate and VRR, but is priced extremely high at 159,000 Yen (1034 pounds)
