Like Samsung's "QLED" LCD, LG is now selling its top LCD TVs as "QNED", short for Quantum Nanocell miniLED, according to LG. These are the company's first LCD TVs with miniLED backlight plus local dimming. The models were announced in January and they will be available in July. At launch, LG is rolling out the 65- to 86-inch QNED99 and QNED95 with 8K resolution and the 65- to 86-inch QNED90 with 4K resolution. The 86-inch model has 30,000 LEDs and about 2500 dimming zones. The smaller sizes will have fewer dimming zones but LG did not disclose exact details. - "LG QNED Mini LED TV represents an evolutionary leap forward, leveraging LG’s unique color reproduction technology and mini LED backlighting to achieve the pinnacle of LCD picture quality," said Park Hyoung-sei, president of LG HE. "Our newest lineup is testament to LG’s technological leadership in the premium TV market made possible by continuously improving and refining our innovative OLED and QNED Mini LED TVs."

The new "QNED" LCD TVs are seemingly designed as a direct alternative to arch rival Samsung's "QLED" LCD TVs as well as other top LCD TVs from the likes of TCL and Sony. LG said that the TVs will initially be available in North America followed by additional regions around the world in the coming weeks.
