In early 2019 LG announced its first 88" 8K OLED TV panel, the OLED Z9, and the company now finally announced that it's flagship TV is coming to Europe and the US next month.

We do not know the price of the OLED Z9 in Europe or the US, but in Korea the price was set at around $42,000 when LG launched the TV in July.

LG's OLED Z9 is the company's flagship TV for 2019 (and probably the world's best TV overall), based on LGD's 88" 8K WRGB panel. The Z9 is based on LG's 2nd-gen Alpha 9 intelligent processor the enables LG's ThinQ AI to offer new display algorithms and Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant.

The OLED Z9 features HDMI 2.1 which enables high frame rate (HFR) support, enhanced audio return channel (eARC), variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM). LG's flagship OLED also feature Dolby Atmos for immersive entertainment.




A question, i know this is not the best page to ask but please entertain me.

RGB printed 4k oleds where showcased as far back as 2013 on big (56") screens and now we only see evaporative techniques. Given than it was possible more than 6years ago, why is it not wide spread now and only used, correct me if I'm wrong, by a start up and only for small displays?

If I can answer my own question, is it the transition to H.D.R. that made these screens unviable?

Thanks in advance.  


That's a great question. Ink

That's a great question. Ink-jet printing OLEDs is challenging - both in the equipment and in the inks themselves (material properties). There has been much progress and it is expected that ink-jet OLEDs will arrive within 1-3 years.
