HDR is really only about getting small windows of the screen to be ultra bright. I doubt anybody wants to watch a screen which has half of the screen lit at 1000 nits.

I doubt that hardware is the limiting factor in the brightness of these OLED's. LG said back at CES that their current generation of OLED's was capable of 800 nits. Here is one source.

Flatpanels has a HDR enabled EG9600 set so we should know soon. The peak brightness is something that could be upgraded through firmware so it is at least possible that current sets could hit...

Do we actually know the peak brightness for OLED HDR? Back at CES, LG indicated it would be 800 nits for the limited areas used by HDR (as opposed to the entire screen). As far as I know, that is...

I am surprised that the 9200/920V supports HDR. My WAG was that they would be non-HDR to differentiate them from the top end models.

Hmmm, what else could they strip out of the 9600 to justify...

FWIW, the pre-order pricing for the 55EG920V (4K OLED Curved) is $2550 in Finland after you subtract out the VAT.

It seems too early to hit that kind of price though. My guess is that this TV...

Wow, found at least one source from Finland (Verkkokauppa) and it looks like it includes the 24% VAT.

Does that include the Finnish VAT tax?

That is an incredible price for a 4K OLED but it would be absolutely unbelievable if it includes the VAT.
