What is OLED, and how is it different?

OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode, with “organic” referring to the carbon film that sits inside the panel before the glass screen.

The TV panel technology is found in a lot of new, premium televisions these days, so it’s not surprising you might want to know what you are actually looking at before you buy.

You will find it used in a host of display devices, but most notably OLED TVs as well as certain high-end smartphones (like the iPhone 11 Pro).

Although we don’t think you need to get to grips with every acronym, OLED is an important term to familiarize yourself with if you are on the lookout for a new smart TV, or just looking to understand the latest chatter around today’s best TVs to buy right now.

This is because so many of the latest and greatest televisions have OLED panels, with only Samsung’s QLED panels really offering a rival of any kind.

But just because OLED is (almost) everywhere, doesn’t mean it isn’t worth shouting about.

Compared to its predecessors and most of the LCDs currently on the market; OLED TVs offer better image quality (think blacker blacks and brighter whites), reduced power consumption, and faster response times.

Not everyone owns an OLED TV, of course, because of a pretty steep price barrier.

That’s slowly changing, largely thanks to more affordable models like the LG B9, scaled up production, and a smaller 48-inch size for the CX OLED and Sony A9G OLED.
