LG's OLED E9 is LG's mid-range OLED TV series in 2019, which will offer 55" and 65" 4K OLED TV panels in a picture-on-glass design. The E9 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 OLEDE9 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.

LG did not yet disclose the release date and price of its OLEDE9 range, but it is likely to ship by March 2019. The current price for the 2018 E8 models are $3,200 for the 65" model and $2,300 for the 55" model. It is likely that the 2019 models will be more expensive than the current 2018 models prices, but will eventually retail for around the same prices.

LG also offers other OLED TVs in 2019, as the E9 is its mid-range 2019 OLED TV. The top of the range will be the Z9 OLED TV based on LGD's latest large 8K 88" OLED panel. There's a new wallpaper model, the OLED W9 and the entry-level OLED C9. LG also says it will start shipping its flagship Signature OLED R rollable TV later in 2019.



While the basic OLED display design uses three colored sub-pixels (red, green and blue) to create each full-color pixel (what is referred to as direct emission OLED), LG Display uses a different architecture, the so-called WRGB (or WOLED-CF) which uses four white OLED subpixels with color filters on top (hence W+RGB). The WRGB technology (developed by Kodak and now owned by LG Display) is much easier to produce and scale-up, even though it has some technical disadvantages - and it is the technology that enabled LG to be the first company to actually produce commercial OLED TV panels.
