If you research OLED vs LED vs LCD you would see that it has several advantages. There are a few disadvantages like lifetime and cost. According to LG their 4K OLED TVs boast the very best display technology currently available. LG 4K OLED TV employs an advanced panel developed by LG Display which features LG’s proprietary Four-Colour Pixel WRGB technology. With 33 million sub-pixels working to produce the most lifelike colours and infinite contrast ratio, viewers will feel like they’re watching the real thing. With richer, brighter and more natural hues, the self-lighting pixels also guarantee deeper blacks and its fast response rate helps the TV render motion flawlessly without flickering or blurring.
These smart TVs are built on the webOS platform. They will be shown off at the upcoming IFA and be available starting in Korea this week and other key markets in North America and Europe to follow soon after. We are being bombarded with smart TVs from all the major manufacturers. No doubt the consumers will benefit from the advances in technology, reduction in price and the competition.
