It's all speculative, based on the way that the Sony Z9D handles motion (albeit, a different display tech), and how Sony as a whole in its processing has handled motion processing. Since the Sony Z9D has the same chip the A1E will have, this led to the whole "Sony must handle motion better than LG".
That's the primary issue I see people having with the LG OLEDs anyway, the motion is jarring to those who notice it/are affected by it. TruMotion is a waste of time, and you can see the threads/posts made by people trying to finagle a way around it by trying RealCinema settings, even using PC mode, etc, etc.
For some, that final tweak to an amazing panel otherwise is worth the price difference.
Heck, it is for me. I swore I'd never pay over 3K for a TV since I got a 5020, ZT60, JS8500, B6 for less than that number, but here I am. At this point I'm willing to pay 5K to have the display I want, even if it means $2,000 just for better motion.
I am tired of compromising. And I am hopeful that Sony, as they are wont to do, has resolved the motion problem.
But for most people, the LG OLEDs are sufficient, as they do not see the motion issues, or are not bothered by it, or are not bothered by it enough to care to upgrade.

Its all fun though! Looking forward to reviews and prices incoming very soon.
It is all fun!
Although with only 100k panels from LG, I don't think this TV is meant for the average Joe - as is the Z9D. Sony has plenty of other models meant for the average Joe.
I dont think there will be too many differences besides motion on the Sony. Maybe alleviating banding and better near-black? It's all guesswork from me at this point.

Finally, I'm surprised the official pricing didn't leak by now. Pretty good job by Sony keeping things under wrap until pre-orders go live tomorrow.
Once I put my preorder in you better believe I'm starting that thread! The pricing has us all antsy for sure.
But to those of us considering it, I bet a good chunk is people who had the LG OLED, weren't satisfied due to motion (from what I read here anyway), and are wondering what Sony can do with the same panel.
