Bang & Olufsen shows OLED TV with soundbar and HDMI 2.1 based on LG GX

Bang & Olufsen has presented a revamped version of the Beovision Eclipse. This OLED TV came out three years ago and this time is based on the 2020 LG GX OLED TV instead of the 2017 LG C7 OLED TV. This includes supporting HDMI 2.1.

Sly present, Bang & Olufsen only has a 55″ version of the second generation of the Beovision Eclipse online, but there will also be a 65″ version. The television features four HDMI 2.0 anconnections and two HDMI 2.1 connectors and runs on LG’s webOS 5.0. The arrival of HDMI 2.1 means support for eARC, vrr and 4k120 images via HDMI.

For the rest, the design of the television remains largely unchanged, especially in the field of the integrated soundbar. The television is still on one footing and it is also possible to use the soundbar separately from the image for internet radio and music streaming services. It is still a 3-channel system with a power of 450W and the soundbar is now also available in a wood color.

LG removed support from DTS in 2020. It is not clear whether this also applies to the second generation of the Beovision Eclipse, but that is obvious, as the LG GX as a module forms the basis. There’s support for Airplay 2, Bluetooth and a built-in Chromecast.

It looks like the 55″ version of the new Beovision Eclipse will cost 9000 euros. The 55″ version from three years ago cost 9,120 euros and the 65″ version then got a price tag of 12,820 euros
