Thanks to a press release from LG Display ahead of this year’s CES event, we now know what to expect from the next generation OLED display technology that will power future televisions.
Dubbed “OLED.EX”, the company’s latest innovation utilises new developments in both materials and processing to deliver up to 30% more brightness compared to conventional OLED displays.
It’s worth reading the entire release if you’re into geeky science-y stuff, as the manufacturing advancements and use of rare compounds in particular to mitigate some of the longstanding issues of OLED tech are incredibly interesting. Check it out here.
LG Display says it plans to incorporate OLED.EX into every one of its OLED panels manufactured at its plants starting Q2 2022, so it’s likely we’ll see the technology sooner rather than later – perhaps as soon as this year.
“Despite the global TV market experiencing a 12 percent decline this year, we still observed a 70 percent growth in OLED sales,” said Dr. Oh Chang-ho, Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display. “With our new OLED.EX technology, we aim to provide even more innovative, high-end customer experiences through the evolution of our OLED technology, algorithms and designs.”
