OLEDs consume less power than LEDs and use no bad metals which makes them environment friendly. The TV is as thin as 0.3mm with best viewing angle of 180 degrees.

Samsung ES9500 is made up of single pane of glass and gives the ultimate picture quality and true-to-life experience. Samsung ES9500 OLED uses ‘True OLED’ RGB sub pixels, as opposed to other TV brands. This also differentiates the OLED TVs from LED TVs. The ES9500 OLED TV promises rich colors and faster response times than traditional TVs. The OLED panel has self-emitting sub pixels to be able to produce lifelike colors in each individual sub-pixel. Samsung claims that the self emitting sub pixels will have capability to produce unparalleled detail in shadows and shapes.
