How Do QLED TVs Work?

QLED is basically the most advanced version of conventional LCD-LED technology. Remember the old “LCD or Plasma?” debate? LCD won handily, and dominates the TV market today. In these TVs, the LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, function as a backlight, which transmits the image through the LCD (liquid crystal display) screen.

How Do OLED TVs Work?

OLED in TVs, meanwhile, is a fundamentally different technology than that of conventional LED-LCD TVs. OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. In an OLED TV, the pixels emit their own light, which means there’s no need for the LCD screen to display the image. There are three so-called “micro pixels” in each OLED pixel, corresponding to the red/green/blue color matrix used to produce colors.
