The flagship model uses an award-winning OLED Panel Technology that works seamlessly with Deep Learning Technology. On the other hand, sound is boosted by an intelligent algorithm that can mix up two channel audio, delivering 5.1 virtual surround sound.

HDR is possible with the help of Dolby Atmos for delivering incredibly realistic sound as the TV intelligently fine-tunes content compatible with Dolby Vision. The TV supports HDMI 2.1, which means users can enjoy 4K content at 60 FPS. It also supports Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).
