Slowly The use of OLED panels is widespread among the new televisions (while they arrive other alternatives) that are appearing on the market and although all manufacturers or at least the vast majority, still reserve a quota in their catalog for classic LED LCDThe truth is that the lower prices of the former are causing the latter, the latter, to be increasingly scarce.
And it is the case of Vizio, who has announced that he will launch his first OLED televisions this fall. The new televisions that Vizio will launch will also feature the new HDMI 2.1 standard. Models that apparently can bet on affordable prices to try to gain a foothold in the market.
OLED, 4K y HDMI 2.1
The new models with OLED panels were announced at CES 2020 Las Vegas, but the COVID19 has caused a delay that has relegated them at the end of the year, so much so that Vizio refers to them as’ 2021 models.
Vizio wants to compete with brands like LG or Sony and also contributing a more contained price than the OLEDs of these manufacturers. There is talk of prices close to $ 1,300 for a 55-inch model or close to 2,000 if we reach 65 inches.
From this new range, we know that, as expected, will offer 4K resolution and will also include HDMI 2.1 ports, the new standard offering access to enhancements like ALLM and eARC
The new range of televisions will use a new IQ Ultra processor with a ProGaming Engine and they will support HDMI VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), AMD FreeSync and an on-screen refresh that ranges from 40 to 120Hz, which indicates that these are televisions also designed to accompany new-generation consoles.
Both the 55-inch Vizio OLED55-H1 and the 65-inch OLED65-H1 offer access to HDR content thanks to the possibility of using HDR10, HDR10 +, HLG y Dolby Vision. They will also be compatible with streaming content thanks to support for SmartCast, Chromecast or AirPlay 2.
