Panasonic OLED 4K TV: Enhanced color reproduction
Furthermore, the 2017 OLED model will have a stunning image quality and reproduction capabilities. It is expected to perform better than the currently available OLED variants. Panasonic managed to make a unique impression in 2016 by releasing an OLED stunner. However, analysts believe that the company will be able to release an OLED TV in 2017, which will outperform its previous counterparts. This is in terms of color, brightness, and other key display functionalities.
The prototype model displayed at the IFA in Berlin indicated the fact that the forthcoming OLED 4K TV will offer spectacular color vibrancy, perfect OLED blacks including pixel-perfect local dimming/brightening precision.
Panasonic OLED 4K TV: Pricing not available
As of this writing, we don’t know the exact price and release date of the Panasonic OLED 4K TV. We expect that the company will increase the price to $1000 than the currently available model. This is because Panasonic oversees huge competition in this segment since companies like LG, Philips and Sony are expected to come up with their own OLED TV models by the end of 2017.
If Panasonic manages to launch the new OLED 4K TV, it will join the current family of Panasonic 4K TV range of models. The currently available flagship is the stunning Viera DX902 model released in 2016.
At the CES 2016, Panasonic showcased Viera CZ950V, which is touted to be the first THX-certified 4K OLED TV. According to industry analysts, the stocks ran out quickly in the markets in those countries where the TV was made available even though the cost was around massive USD 8000. It seems that when it comes to premium OLED segment, consumers doesn’t look into the pricing aspects.
