LG's new 'OLED EX' should fix the pain points of current OLED televisions
- LG Display announced its newest big-screen television technology, OLED EX.
- The new display should be up to 30% brighter than conventional OLED TV screens.
- The first TVs with OLED EX screens should be made sometime in the second quarter of 2022.
OLED TVs are well known for their accurate color and deeper blacks compared to traditional flat-screen televisions. However, they do tend to not be as bright as rivals that use the mini-LED technology. Today, LG Display announced a new screen technology it calls OLED EX (EX is an acronym of “evolution” and “experience,” according to LG). The biggest feature is that displays with this technology should be up to 30% brighter compared to normal OLED screens.

LG says the new screens use deuterium compounds that should allow OLED pixels to shine brighter. They also use machine learning to create what it calls “personalized algorithms.” In short, when you buy an OLED EX-based TV, the algorithm will learn your individual viewing pattern and will then control the screen’s energy output for a more accurate color display.
Bezels should also be thinner with OLED EX-based TVs. A 65-inch television should be able to cut the bezels down from 6mm to just 4mm. LG plans to make the first OLED EX televisions sometime in the second quarter of 2022 at its plants in South Korea and China.
There’s no word on how much these TVs with OLED EX displays will cost, although we would bet that they will be priced at a premium at first. There’s also no word on when these televisions will arrive in the United States.
