LG rolls out Dolby Vision 120Hz update for 2021 OLED TVs – later 2020 OLED (update)

22 Jun 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG will start rolling out an update this week to enable Dolby Vision gaming support at 4K 120Hz on 2021 OLED TVs. The update will come later to 2020 OLED and possibly more models.
Update 29.6.2021: LG today confirmed that additional models "such as OLED Z1 series, QNED Mini LED QNED99 series and NanoCell NANO99 series TVs will also receive the update in July. Additional 2021 and 2020 TV models are also being tested for Dolby Vision gaming in either 60Hz or 120Hz."

Dolby Vision gaming update

As promised, LG is bringing enhanced Dolby Vision gaming support to its OLED TVs in preparation for the launch of Dolby Vision games on Xbox. LG Korea has informed FlatpanelsHD that starting tomorrow, June 23, it will start a gradual rollout of firmware version 3.15.27 for the C1 and G1 2021 OLED models. The update will enable the TVs to receive and process Dolby Vision signals at up to 4K 120Hz. The firmware will also include new color options (purple, orange, green) for the Game Optimizer menu, a new Game Dashboard menu at the bottom of the screen, webOS 6.0 performance optimizations, and new Gallery features. In addition, C1 and G1 owners will no longer have to manually switch between having AMD FreeSync and Dolby Vision enabled. Following the update, you can have both enabled at the same time. The company added that it will soon, hopefully within a month, make similar firmware available in beta for some of the other 2021 models. A full list of models was not provided. Customers can contact their local LG office if they want the beta firmware before the public release.
