OLED TVs from Turkish Arçelik and Vestel to debut at IFA 2016

30 Aug 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Two Turkish manufacturers will join the OLED movement at IFA 2016 this week. The panels are supplied by LG.Display and the partnership with Vestel could help make OLED available to even more TV brands.

Samsung and Sony could soon become some of the only manufacturers without an OLED TV; the next generation of display technology. This is clear as news from IFA in Berlin has started streaming out.

German brands Loewe and Metz have already confirmed that they will each launch an OLED TV, and Philips is expected to unveil their first OLED model tomorrow. Two Turkish manufacturers, Arçelik and Vestel, have now confirmed that they will each unveil a 65" OLED TV at IFA 2016. The panels will, unsurprisingly, be sourced from LG.Display, meaning that the TVs feature Ultra HD, HDR (high dynamic range) and DCI-P3 color gamut. Arçelik's TV is just 6.5 mm thick at the thinnest point.

- "Our new Arçelik-brand product is the first OLED TV to have been produced in Turkey," said Can Dinçer, Vice General Manager at Arçelik.

The two Turkish companies have yet to announce pricing details and it is not clear in which countries, besides Turkey, the TVs will be made available. However, LG.Display’s partnership with Vestel is very interesting.

Could bring OLED to more TV brands

Vestel is the largest manufacturer of TVs in Europe, if you include all of its OEM contract partnerships.

Vestel is producing TVs for brands such as Toshiba, Finlux, Polaroid, Hitachi, RCA, Medion, Telefunken, Vestfrost and Electra. The company has also in the past produced Panasonic and Philips’ entry-level TV models (and may still be producing them). Vestel recently teamed up with Google to integrate Android TV in its displays.

With Vestel gaining access to LG’s OLED panels, there is a good chance that OLED could find its way into some of the smaller TV brands mentioned above.
