LG and Sony are the first to offer OLED TVs in a new 48 inch screen size. But which of these compact monitors works best, and for what? It's time for a mini-OLED duel!

The sharp and contrast-rich OLED TVs have long been limited to screen sizes from 55 ”and up. Virtually all OLED screens originate from the South Korean LG Display, which produces and cuts the panels in specific templates of 55, 65 and 77 ”. But now there is hope: After renewing the production line, the LG factory can finally offer a wider range of screen sizes, including an extra compact 48 ”variant!
This is undoubtedly good news for those who have wanted an OLED TV for special applications where you have less space, sit very close to the screen or just want a small TV for aesthetic reasons. Whether you want a good TV for the office, bedroom or gaming room, it is now free to enjoy the picture quality from OLED in a new, compact format.
Since it is the sister company LG Display that produces the picture panels, it comes as no surprise that LG Electronics is among the first to offer a TV in the new size. The 2020 model LG OLED48CX is the first 48 ”edition from LG. Next on the list is the Sony KD-48A9 which also uses a 48 ”panel from LG, where the Japanese have swung the wand over image processing and sound reproduction as they usually do. We can probably expect more manufacturers to offer 48 ”OLED eventually, but right now it’s about these two!
