According to its own statements, the panel manufacturer LG Display has already completely switched to the production of the new OLED.EX panels. The light-emitting diodes should work more efficiently and thus shine up to 30 percent brighter than their predecessors.
LG Display has confirmed to the FlatpanelsHD website that since the end of the second quarter of 2022 in only the innovative OLED.EX panels with higher luminosity are manufactured in their own factories.
However, this does not mean that all new televisions are already equipped with such a panel. Because these could have been produced before the changeover or still be assembled with any leftovers from older OLED panels. In addition to the parent company LG Electronics, numerous TV manufacturers use OLED panels from LG Display. These include Hisense, Panasonic, Philips and Sony. Philips introduced the OLED807 with OLED.EX earlier this year.
OLED.EX stands for more luminosity
The new panel generation uses a more efficient and more stable deuterium instead of hydrogen-based binder in the organic material. In conjunction with adapted algorithms, this should increase the stability and efficiency of the organic light-emitting diodes and thus enable a 30 percent higher maximum brightness compared to conventional OLED panels. The brand name “EX” is an acronym for “Evolution” and “eXperience,” according to the manufacturer.
Samsung Display competes with QD-OLED
Samsung Display's competing product is QD-OLED. The technology differs significantly from LG Display's white OLED approach, as blue OLEDs are combined with quantum dots. It was recently announced that Philips is also considering Samsung's QD OLED displays for future products.
