Samsung Electronics exhibits its 88-inch QLED TVs, as well as 55-, 65-, and 75-inch QLED TVs, at this year’s IFA in Berlin. In addition, Samsung Electronics is going to set up an exhibition zone dedicated to HDR10+, which is an improvement on the existing high dynamic range (HDR) imaging technology.

At the same time, the company is planning to launch a QLED HDR10+ forum and announce the list of new content partners to join the development of the HDR10+ technology. HDR10+ has been applied to all of its UHD TV products, including QLED TVs, released this year.

LG Electronics, in the meantime, exhibits a number of premium OLED TVs, including the LG Signature OLED TV W and the LG Super Ultra HD TV. LG Electronics also displays its HDR imaging technology by setting up a dedicated zone.

At present, 12 companies around the world are developing OLED TVs with LG Electronics and the number of those working on QLED TVs with Samsung is slightly less than that. The 12 include Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba, Philips, Bang & Olufsen and Skyworth.

LG Electronics is scheduled to supply Bang & Olufsen with its OLED TVs from next month. At the fair in Berlin, the Danish audio company unveils LG OLED TVs combined with its sound technology. Bang & Olufsen has developed OLED TVs with LG Electronics since March last year.
