The QNED 2022 TV range would therefore be structured around five TV series, with the LG QNED95 and LG QNED99 of Ultra HD 8K obedience, and the LG QNED80, LG QNED85 and LG QNED90 equipped with an Ultra HD 4K LCD panel. Note that the LG QNED80 TVs, despite their name, should not have a Mini LED backlighting system, but LED Edge. In the end, the QNED TV range (for Quantum Nano Emitting Diode) would therefore have four Mini LED series.

The LG QNED 2022 TV range would therefore consist of the following series:
• Ultra HD 8K Mini LED TV LG QNED99:
- LG 65QNED99 (65 '', 165 cm)
- LG 75QNED99 (75 '', 191 cm)
- LG 86QNED99 (86 '', 218 cm)
• LG QNED95 8K Ultra HD Mini LED TV (QNED96 depending on the design of the legs):
- LG 65QNED95 (65 '', 165 cm)
- LG 75QNED95 (75 '', 191 cm)
• LG QNED90 Ultra HD 4K Mini LED TV (QNED91 depending on the design of the legs):
- LG 65QNED90 (65 '', 165 cm)
- LG 75QNED90 (75 '', 191 cm)
- LG 86QNED90 (86 '', 218 cm)
• LG QNED85 4K Ultra HD Mini LED TV (QNED86 depending on the design of the legs):
- LG 65QNED85 (65 '', 165 cm)
- LG 75QNED85 (75 '', 191 cm)
LCD panels 50 Hz or 100 Hz and Mini blue LEDs
Namely, LG QNED85 and LG QNED95 series are equipped with 50Hz IPS panels, while LG QNED90 and LG QNED99 feature native 100Hz IPS LCD panel. The Full LED Local Dimming backlighting is based on Mini blue LEDs and technology called Quantum Dot NanoCell Color. With the aim of richer and more accurate colors, this combines the use of Quantum Dots technology (i.e. the nano-crystals at the heart of QLED diffusers) and the exclusive NanoCell + process announced by LG as an evolution of NanoCell, without more details. For your information, the LG 86QNED99 television has 2,400 zones.
Alpha 7 / Alpha 9 Gen 5 and WebOS 22 processor
For the rest, we also know that the Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor (see our CES 22 news> New Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor for LG Oled TV and QNED Mini LED) powers the LG QNED95 and LG QNED99 televisions while the LG QNED85 and LG QNED90 have the Alpha 7 Gen 5 chip on board. Of course, LG QNED Mini LED televisions all have the latest version of the WebOS 22 Smart TV function.
TV LG QNED 2022, the main specifications
Finally, without further details as to the models concerned, some of these screens also benefit from HDMI 2.1 connectors (no precision yet as to their number on each of the series) with the management of ALLM, VRR, 4K / 120 and eARC. For their part, Filmmaker modes, the Game Dashboard / Optimizer menu, AirPlay 2, HomeKit, Google Stadia and GeForce Now compatibilities are required. The new LG LCD models will also be delivered with WebOS 22 (see our CES 22 news> LG 2022 Smart TV: new WebOS 22 interface).
The Always Ready functionality is also present: it displays works of art or allows the user to interact vocally with the television when it is off to obtain information on the weather, for example. And the answers will be displayed on the screen. Finally, support for Matter will be added in the second half of 2022 via a Firmware update (see our CES 22 news> TV Oled LG C2 and LG G2, Room to Room Share function and Matter compatibility).
More details, on each of these LG QNED series, later. Availability announced for this summer.
