LG showcased its new OLED EX display technology, just ahead of the CES 2022. Now, Philips has announced that its OLED807 lineup of 4K HDR TVs will adopt LG’s new OLED EX panels. OLED panels have always suffered from low brightness levels when compared with mini LED panels, which provide almost double the brightness. LG’s new OLED EX is said to improve on that aspect, providing up to 30 percent more brightness than older generation panels from LG.
LG’s New OLED EX Panels
OLED panels offer about 600 nits of peak brightness whereas the mini LEDs are able to crank it up to about 1400 nits. The OLED EX panels would hopefully reach around 1000 nits, as per LG’s claim, and will help to reduce the gap. LG has been able to achieve it by using an organic material called deuterium in its latest OLED EX panels. The company is also using algorithmic image processing to analyse your content and precisely control the display’s energy input. Owing to these changes, the panels are able to produce improved details, vibrant colours, and enhanced brightness levels. LG’s new updated panel designs are 30 percent less thick and are supposed to reduce the bezel size from 6mm to 4mm on bigger 65-inch OLED displays.
Philips says it will offer its televisions sporting the OLED EX panels in 48-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 77-inch size options. These will offer variable refresh rates from 48 to 120 Hz. The panels will support 4K, HDR, and will get the latest HDMI 2.1 ports. Philips says the OLED807 TV sets will employ various methods to avoid screen burn-in due to static content. The TVs will come equipped with a new 70-watt 2.1 sound system, which will come with four passive radiators and a rear-facing bass driver.
