OLED TV in Singapore

Though often costing a pretty penny, OLED TV tech boasts the highest contrast compared to other types of TVs, and are highly sought-after entertainment gadgets in our Singapore homes. Using tiny LEDs to light each pixel, each can be turned off to produce absolute blacks and cranked up for bright ones – to produce rich, dramatic scenes that are cinema-worthy. 

This high contrast enables the most vivid visuals you can get on a TV, which you can enjoy in crisp 4K resolution to help you maximise your Netflix subscription. Though all models are available in other sizes like 48”, 65” and 77”, we’ll focus on the HDB-optimal 55” versions of the 7 best OLED TVs in Singapore:

Once costing in the tens of thousands, you can now snag an OLED TV in Singapore for a fraction of that price. Despite being the most affordable option on this list, the Philips 55OLED873 packs a solid set of modern features that make it the ideal entry-level choice for those making the upgrade to OLED.

Apart from 4K resolution and Dolby HDR10+ capabilities, you’ll get to enjoy immersive action sequences with DTS HD surround sound. Though respectable, it’s not quite the top-tier Dolby Vision – that boasts a higher range of colours and contrast, and Dolby Atmos that recreates complex soundscapes with pinpoint accuracy in 3D.

Despite containing the full array of speakers, processors and electronics, the LG GX OLED TV measures 2CM at its thickest point – about the width of your thumb. Mounting flush against a wall using an included mount, it can transform your living room into an exhibition with Art Gallery Mode to cycle through pictures when not in use.  

Despite its ultra-slim build, it supports a whole host of top-tier features, including Dolby Vision IQ. A step above the top-notch Dolby Vision format, it boosts the brightness, colour and contrast of content based on its genre and the ambient lighting conditions of the surroundings. 

It also packs Dolby Atmos audio, the pinnacle of surround sound formats known for its ability to make effects sound as if they’re coming from above

With ultra-thin bezels that make the content seem like it’s floating in space, modern TVs usually resort to rear-facing speakers to maintain that minimalist front end. To deliver powerful audio directly to your ears, Sony A8G Bravia uses Acoustic Surface Audio that uses the screen as a speaker – vibrating it to project audio that sounds like it originates from the picture itself. 

Augmenting the realistic audio are extra speakers hidden in the frame for higher frequencies and surround sound, along with subwoofers for heart-thumping bass. But if you’re looking for something a little extra, the included stand can be rotated to raise the TV to accommodate an additional soundbar in front of it.

You’ll also enjoy the low input lag for responsive gaming, while in-game HDR brings out detail in dark scenes so you’ll catch dreaded campers lurking in the shadows. 

To cap it off, AI Acoustic Tuning matches the audio to your surroundings for realistic-sounding audio, and a low blue light and flicker-free display lets you while away the hours with minimal strain on the eyes.
