From the rumor mill to the dining table! Since the polarization filter layer was omitted in 2017 (2016 OLED TVs still support 3D), which resulted in an increased brightness of the OLED displays, there have actually been no significant changes / improvements in LG’s self-luminous, organic displays. Means maximum brightness, black level, color space and color volume remained the same. The differences mostly resulted from different integrations and controls of the delivered OLED panels (e.g. increased brightness of the Panasonic Professional Edition OLED TVs). In 2021, LG Electronics should make improvements again for the first time. The new devices with the improved displays will therefore be called “LG OLED evo”.
LG OLED evo mit 1,000 nits?
We take appropriate information from the international brand and product database, in which the term LG OLED evo was registered under the Nice classification 9 (including TV sets and displays). “ Evo” is used here as an abbreviation for “ Evolution”. In the past few weeks, rumors have been building up after new ones “ Premium OLEDs” with increased brightness (up to 1,000 nits) and even to give a new size for the 4K models. An 83 incher is supposed to satisfy the demand for ever larger televisions – certainly at a horrific price.
At the same time, LG Display has the terms “#Vanta Black” and „#Sapphire Black“ protected, also in the Nice category 9. We will probably only find out in the next few days whether this is just another marketing term for the excellent black level of the OLED displays, or whether there is a further improvement behind it . Incidentally, “Vanta Black” is derived from the material of the same name, which “swallows” 99.96% of the incident light. Perhaps the engineers at LG Display succeeded in further improving the near-black display of the OLED screens? Or has LG finally got the problem of reflections under control?
We are definitely looking forward to the new OLED models from LG and are curious to see what verifiable improvements the “Premium OLEDs” will bring with them. Detailed information in the next few days and in our CES 2021 special.
