LG Electronics has declared itself to be the first-ever manufacturer to offer the ability to play Dolby Vision HDR content in 4K at 120fps on some of its flagship TVs. LG TVs received the update even before the first Dolby Vision HDR video games appeared.
The update that makes this feature possible is the firmware version 03.15.27. LG has announced that this firmware version is already available to its users. Thereby, it makes LG’s flagship TVs such as the OLED TVs from the C1 and the G1 series the very first TVs that can offer Dolby Vision HDR at 4K and 120Hz on modern consoles. The availability of the firmware, and thereby, Dolby Vision HDR at 4K, is not only limited to the C1 and G1 series of OLED TVs.
It only makes sense that the premium TV models from the company should also receive the new feature, and as such, additional premium models such as the TVs included in LG’s 2021 TV lineup, including the OLED Z1 series, the QNED Mini LED QNED99 series, and the NanoCell NANO99 series of TVs will also get the ability. However, these premium TVs will receive an update for the same in the month of July. A few other 2021 and 2020 TVs are also being tested for gaming with Dolby Vision HDR at 60Hz or 120Hz.
Apart from introducing the Dolby Vision 4K feature, the firmware 03.15.27 will also introduce other features as well. Apparently, the company claims that the firmware will take gameplay to the next level. Game Dashboard, available on all 2021 LG TVs equipped with Game Optimizer, is a floating OSD, similar to the head-up display (HUD) used in many games. This feature lets the users view TV settings and switch between different genres (including standard, FPS, RPG or RTS).
