Grundig OLED TV
At IFA 2016, we finally see the results of LG’s business decision to sell OLED panels to anyone interested (except Samsung, perhaps). Inside all of the OLED TVs announced at IFA is an LG.Display OLED panel. The same is true for Grundig’s new TV.
Grundig TVs are produced by Turkish Arçelik and if you study the design you will see that it closely resembles the OLED TV that Arçelik announced earlier this week. The TV will, at launch, only be available in 65 inches. It features Ultra HD and HDR (high dynamic range).
Arçelik is using the Grundig brand in Europe because it has a rich history here, especially for its TVs in the good old CRT days.
- “The ultra-thin panel of just 5.97 mm offers superior, high-contrast images while preserving image detail. Unlike LED TVs, organic light emitting diode (OLED) offers greater contrast because of better black and white values,” said Grundig.
The TV will have an aluminum frame and stand. It has built-in decoding of HEVC and VP9, which makes it capable of streaming 4K over the internet. It is also equipped with 3D, 8 speaker units (total 60W output), a twin-tuner for recording, apps, and integrated WiFi.
The Grundig OLED TV is called 65VLO9790 and will be available in Europa later this autumn. The price was not announced but Arçelik has said its first 65” OLED TV will cost approximately 3800 Euro (updated) at launch in Turkey. Update: The price will vary depending on your region and will in some markets sell for up to 6500 Euro (Nordics).
