LG is the maker of a few of our favourite OLED TVs, so when the corporate says it’s improved on its fundamental panel technology, it’s price paying consideration. At present it did simply that, with LG Show saying its next-generation OLED technology — dubbed OLED EX — which the corporate says will enhance brightness by as much as 30 %, enhance image accuracy, and permit for smaller bezels in completed merchandise.
These enhancements are because of two key modifications. The primary is using a component referred to as deuterium within the chemical make-up of LG’s OLED panels, and the second is the incorporation of algorithmic picture processing. LG says the latter will predict the utilization of every particular person mild emitting diode in your TV based mostly in your private viewing habits to “exactly [control] the show’s vitality enter to extra precisely specific the main points and colours of the video content material being performed.”
OLED EX panels use new chemical design and predictive algorithms to enhance image high quality.

This all sounds effectively and good, however we’ll have to attend till we see these new panels in individual to essentially decide whether or not OLED EX is a major enchancment or simply an incremental advance with some enthusiastic branding. (On that observe, LG helpfully explains that the “EX” in OLED EX comes from the phrases “evolution” and “expertise.” Very ‘90s, I assumed.)
LG’s claims about diminished bezel sizes with OLED EX are slightly extra concrete a minimum of. The corporate says that based mostly on calculations involving a 65-inch OLED show, it is going to be in a position to scale back bezel thickness from 6mm to 4mm. It’s not an enormous change on paper, however given how optimized this technology already is, each little enchancment needs to be fought for.
LG says it plans to begin incorporating OLED EX technology into all its OLED panels beginning within the second quarter of 2022, although it’s not clear how for much longer it would then take for this technology to succeed in customers. In addition to bettering its OLED tech, LG has additionally been enjoying with some wilder ideas at this yr’s CES convention, exhibiting off new clear shows in addition to reclining, curved OLED thrones.
