LG today introduced a 16-inch model to its LG Gram 2021 lineup that includes the 14 and 17-inch variants. The LG Gram 16 has generally the same size footprint as the 15-inch variant of the laptop's 2020 models (which was reviewed by Neowin's João Carrasqueira here), although it has a larger display.
The Gram 16 is powered by Intel's 11th-generation processor (Tiger Lake), with options for both the Core i5 and Core i7 processors paired with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Billed as the world's lightest 16-inch laptop, it weighs 1,190g (2.6 pounds) and measures 356 x 244 x 16.8mm.
Its display also brings some improvements from the older 15-inch model. The laptop sports an IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 2560 × 1600 resolution, whereas the 15-inch model has a 1920 × 1080 resolution display. Under the hood, it packs an 80Wh battery.
The laptop will be available in Snow White, Quartz Silver, and Obsidian Black for a base price of 2,900,000 Korean Won, or approximately $2,651. There's no official word yet for its international pricing, though, with LG set to formally launch the latest LG Gram lineup in January in South Korea. After that, it probably won't be too long before the 2021 models hit other markets.
