Is this the year you buy an OLED?
Let's face it, every year is a good year to buy an OLED if you can afford it.
That is, this year's TV crop reflects the prices we saw last year. This probably means that the new models will be relatively expensive if you buy one in April, May or June, but fall in the direction of Black Friday and Super Bowl next year.
If you can last until then or at least until June or July, the B9-OLED appears, you could save yourself some money. As far as the comparison between this year's OLED harvest and last year, LG was eager to hype the second-generation Alpha A9 processor, which has a multi-stage upscaling process for noise reduction as well as the support of two major personal assistants, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, at this year's OLEDs.
You will also find HDMI 2.1 instead of the standard HDMI 2.0 ports, allowing you to enjoy high frame rate (4K HFR) content with variable refresh rate (VRR) and with an improved Audio Return Channel (eARC).
However, if you're only concerned with image performance, last year's comparable LG C8 OLED remains one of the best TVs in 2019 and is now priced at under $ 1,800 so you can not go wrong know about OLED TVs
