The firmware update to enable Dolby Vision gaming at 4K 120Hz on the LG CX and GX 2020 OLED TVs will roll out globally starting next week.
Update: The firmware is now available for manual download via LG's support pages in the US (ver 04.30.10), the UK (ver 04.30.10), and elsewhere. The new firmware also fixes the VRR counter for HDMI 2.1 input in the info box that can be enabled by pressing the green button multiple times.
4K120 Dolby Vision gaming
LG brought Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz gaming support to its 2021 OLED models (C1 and G1) in June. Starting next week, owners of LG CX, GX, and WX OLED TVs will also be able to enjoy Dolby Vision at 120Hz – up from a maximum of 60Hz previously.
Firmware version 04.30.10 has already reached some owners in South Korea (link to 04.30.10 on LG Korea's support page) and will be released globally next week, LG confirmed to FlatpanelsHD.
It is a staggered rollout so if you are not seeing from the TV's update menu check LG's support pages from where it can soon be downloaded manually. LG expects the firmware to be available in all regions by the end of October.

Only a handful of Xbox games support 120fps output at this time but Dolby Vision (and HDR10) on LG 2020 OLED TVs also works together with VRR (and FreeSync), which reduces input lag and stutter for a faster and smoother game experience.
LG is still "looking into" the possibility of supporting Dolby Vision at 120Hz on other models including 2019 OLED models such as C9.
