LG to Debut 65-Inch OLED “Wallpaper”

At InfoComm 2018, LG will debut 65-inch OLED “Wallpaper” display (model 65EJ5E). The “Wallpaper” OLED offers an unprecedented way of presenting rich video content.

Previously LG’s OLED “Wallpaper” was previously only available in a 55-inch size with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. However, the 65-inch 65EJ5E OLED “Wallpaper” display features 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution for even more accurate details that match the virtually infinite color contrast and perfect black levels of the company’s latest OLED TVs. The company offers this performance in a form factor previously deemed impossible.

The 55-inch model was merely 3.65 mm thick with a 1.2 mm bezel. While the specifics of the 65-inch model are still under wraps, the thickness is expected to be the same. The brightness of the 55-inch model was moderate 400 cd/m2 (nits).

This moderate brightness is made up for by the fact that unlike LCD displays that decrease in brightness and contrast at wide viewing angles, the OLED “Wallpaper” offers perfect images at all viewing angles.

The weight of the 55-inch model was just 12.6 kg. On LG’s website the company compared it to an LCD TV with the same diagonal size of 55 inches. Such an LCD TV would be significantly heavier at 18.6 kg. The company also boasts that the 55-inch model offers 5,000-times faster motion-picture response compared to LCD, to show motion without blurring.

I expect the 65-inch diagonal model will have the same thickness and a proportional weight but will offer 4K ultra HD instead of full HD. And the performance in terms of response time and color gamut will be the same. The company says however that the new model has an even thinner overlap bezel seam. The company also says that a slim mounting bracket and magnets allow easy mounting. Like the 55-inch model, the 65-inch model will also allow wall tiling.

The display comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio. LG is marketing this OLED “Wallpaper” to businesses who want to reach consumers with eye-catching signage for high-end commercial spaces such as airport lounges, museums, and retail spaces.
