Via Lian Li's 2021 Digital Expo, the Taiwanese case manufacturer showcases prototypes of four upcoming models. Presumably, these models will hit the market later this year. Some interesting models in here, Lian Li's case design has gotten a bit more modern recently. Not that long ago, Lian Li's design was stuck a bit in the past but that's no longer the case here. Four tasteful aluminum cases:
The Q58, a 14.3L SFF case, is equipped with split hinged panels made of tempered glass and aluminum mesh, and a dual-tone front solid aluminum panel. With support for MINI-ITX, 320mm long GPUs, and up to 280mm radiators, the Q58 is capable of supporting a variety of configurations with SFX PSUs or ATX PSUs due to an adjustable motherboard tray that can be moved for more clearance.

A collaboration with DAN Cases from Germany, the A4-H2O is an SFF case at only 10.4L. Inspired by the original A4-SFX, the all-aluminum A4-H2O offers a refined look and sleek design. Compatible with mini-ITX motherboards and SFX or SFX-L power supplies, the A4-H2O can fit in any GPU up to 315mm in length and 2.7 slots in thickness, and any 240 AIO with CPU block clearance of 56mm. The A4-H2O’s mesh at the top, right, and left panels offer plenty of airflow for proper thermal management. In addition, the A4-H20 has lots of storage space with mounts for 2 SSDs behind the front panel.

A redesign of the original V3000, the V3000+ is a modernized aluminum full tower case that masters water cooling, airflow, modularity, storage, and high-performance component compatibility. With support for up to three 480mm radiators plus a 360mm radiator, sixteen 120mm fans, two systems, two PSUs, and horizontal or vertical GPU up to 420mm in length, the V3000+ is the ultimate case for the performance systems. Up to 16 HDDs or 19 SSDs can be fitted in the V3000+, enough to turn this case into a powerful storage server. With a tempered glass panel on the left, meshed top panel and shroud panels, solid front and right side panels, the V3000+ also includes accents of RGB around the front panel which can be controlled by a magnet-mount remote control.

Designed as an airflow optimized O11 Dynamic, the O11D EVO offers features of the O11D XL in the footprint of the O11 Dynamic. The 2 aluminum panels at the top and right side feature a redesigned mesh that acts as a dust filter while providing the system with unparalleled airflow. The aluminum strip at the front of the case is a flip panel that covers the case-control buttons, as well as an optional SDD case for two 2.5” SSDs or HDDs. In terms of compatibility, the O11D EVO supports motherboards ranging from E-ATX to MINI ITX, GPUs up to 445mm long, and PSUs up to 200mm in length. Users now have the option to place their GPU beside the motherboard, in an upright position. As for radiators, fans, and storage support, three modular brackets which can be arranged for either 280/360 radiators/fans, or 2.5”/3.5” SSDs/HDDs are included.
