LG also announced a 48-inch variant for 2020, along with the larger CX series OLED TVs. It should actually appear in mid-May, but is finally starting in June.
LG had already confirmed the price of the CX with 48 inches in March – 1,799 euros is the recommended retail price. At that time, mail was also called the time of publication. But the month is almost over and unfortunately there is nothing to see of the OLED TV with its compact dimensions. That won’t change this month, but it will change in June 2020.
According to a new press release from LG, the new 48CX will now be available in selected regions in June and will complement the previous CX with 55, 65, 77 and 88 inches. Like the previous series, the C9 from 2019, the CX already support HDMI 2.1 and thus also features such as HDMI eARC, VRR, ALLM and 4K with 120 Hz. However, the bandwidth of the interface is slightly smaller than last year, as the manufacturer says South Korea already had to concede.
In general, the technical data of the new CX models are very similar to the C9 from the previous year, so that the surcharges for the current generation from 2020 do not currently pay off in our opinion. Because in offers you could take the C9 with 55 or 65 inches for around 1,300 or 1,800 euros each – and also already get HDMI 2.1 with all functions.
LG CX should fight at the front on the OLED front
In addition to HDR10, the CX naturally also support Dolby Vision and the new gaming profile of the HDR Gaming Interest Group (HGiG). So if you are planning to buy a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, these TVs are generally the right address. LG states that the LG OLED 48X will now be launched in “key markets in Europe and Asia” in June 2020. The United States and other areas will follow later.
Germany should also have a turn in June 2020 – after all, the country is an important market for the South Koreans.
