TBH, the core technology in oled HASN'T changed since 2016, no matter what improvements people keep citing. The core technology remains the same, the improvements talked about result from better and more optimized processing that improves motion, gradient handling, upscaling, tone mapping etc. But these differences are only those that 'videophile eyes' would pick up mostly, if i took my mom to a store to see a B6 and compare to a c8 or c9, she would say they look about the same with the c8 or c9 looking slightly more bright side by side. If you are expecting to go 'omg wow' coming from a B6, that kind of technological leap hasn't happened until now. Since you have already seen a c9, you might look into seeing a sony a9f or a9g, it is not the same sony model that you saw and returned (which must be the A8f or A1e), A9 is the best sony oled yet and you might like it a little over the B6 but again no groundbreaking leap.
Problem is sometimes the expectations are too high (want to be blown away) and subtle differences dont tend to impress. I too find myself in the same boat lately. Will have to wait for a new oled technology or micro led in few years to be completely blown away over currently existing technologies.
