The Morning After: 30 percent brighter OLED TVs are coming | Engadget

While I didn’t receive it in time for our best purchases of 2021, I am now the proud owner of an LG C1 OLED TV. It’s beautiful, it has 4K, HDR, variable refresh rates, and more. Everything looks amazing on him.

As I bought it, I thought about how I’ve never been on the cutting edge of TV technology and how it would only last a couple of weeks until LG screw it all up with even newer TV models.

And like a clock. LG Display’s next generation of OLED technology, called “OLED EX”, which is supposed to “improve brightness by up to 30 percent compared to conventional OLED displays,” the company also updated the TV designs, reducing the thickness by 30 percent and bezel size from 6 to 4mm on 65-inch OLED displays.

In defense of my new 55-inch OLED, this is LG Display, not LG, the part of the multinational company that brings this new TV tech to stores, so that doesn’t mean it’s landing on a new TV right away. It’s just, sigh, already on the horizon.

The allegations match astronomer Jonathan McDowell’s joint observations on both days. China further argued that SpaceX satellites were not always predictable. During the October incident, the Starlink spacecraft was “continually” maneuvering in a way that made it difficult to predict the orbital trajectory.
