Yes, but it comes attached to a soundbar and reports are that the processor doesn't do anything extra besides tend to WebOS and the soundbar. It's just a matter of whether or not you believe those reports.

I think you'll see similar picture quality in all of the OLED offerings. The only real question is whether or not all EG/EF models are getting HDR and/or whether the upscaling is better in the true 2015 models (which I believe is likely).
thats alot of extra cores just to control sound

Ah yes - I wondered if we were going to be travelling back in time to CES in January... Yet another trade show where Panasonic once again trotted out an OLED prototype likely based on an LG Display panel, and afterwards had to issue a statement denying there were any firm plans to release a commercial product.

And at its subsequent European convention in February? Not even a suggestion of an OLED TV among its 2015 line-up.

So, no new deal, and nothing which is imminently materialising into anything, if ever.

If you're content to undermine your credibility by playing fast and loose with the facts, that's up to you, but the concern is that someone might put some stock in your claims.

A) I never claimed Panasonic had a commercial product, ever had one, or ever will have one. I said up until the typing of this post, the only OLED TV Panasonic has ever even remotely mentioned, shown, made, etc. used an LG panel.
B) Nobody besides LG is even remotely near producing OLED panels at this time.


A+B = A Panasonic (or any other brand) OLED released in the next 2 - 3 yrs at least is going to use an LG panel.


Does that mean nobody besides LG is ever going to make an OLED panel? Maybe. You see LG is the only company to have a viable OLED production process at this time and they own a bunch of patents on it. Samsung's production process was not viable.


Now, don't get me wrong... your uncle Bob may accidently discover a new viable process in his garage next month, but until somebody announces that they have a viable process and they are breaking ground on a factory (or retrofitting an existing one)... --- yeah, I'm gonna say any OLED TV that has any chance of materializing any time soon is going to be using an LG panel :).

I wouldn't be surprised inf Panny exits the TV business entirely by the end of the year. I doubt we will ever see a Panny OLED actually for sale, at least in the US.
I really hope that does not happen. Panasonic did such a good job with their plasma sets I hope that they will bring an OLED (flat screen) to market.

That´s wrong. The European convention is not CES or IFA, but a dealer trade show for the 2015 lineup and they presented the OLED TV again. Panasonic told at the event that they working for a IFA 2015 release. Don´t forget the new 9er series is still missing in the 2015 lineup and also the AXW904 was only showed before as a prototype at CES and the European convention in 2014.
