OLED vs ULED: Which One?

With so much advanced technology in today’s world, the simple process of choosing a new television can be difficult. There are so many numbers, descriptions and specs, which makes it hard to know what TV is best for you.

One thing to pay attention to when you’re in an electronics store is whether your television is OLED or ULED. Let’s find out the differences:


  • OLED is short for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. This means that each pixel of OLED TVs delivers its own illumination, which can be turned off individually.
  • You’ll find that OLED TV screens offer a great contrast ratio for colours.
  • However, one downside to OLED TVs is that they aren’t as bright as LED panels. In addition, you’ll find that your energy bills will be higher with an OLED TV, as they use more power, as well as having a higher initial cost.


  • ULED or Ultra LED is used by Hisense to refer to Ultra Wide Colour Gamut, Ultra Local Dimming, Ultra 4K Resolution and Ultra Smooth Motion Rate. It’s a term used for a collection of technology patents.
  • You’ll find that ULED TVs are brighter, more detailed and boast a broad collection of colours onscreen.
  • ULED uses local dimming in contrast to OLED, which creates blacks by turning off the pixels. This means that the different panel zones on the Hisense Series 7 can be dimmed or made brighter. This will give you an excellent contrast range and detail.
  • ULED TVs are always 4K Ultra High-Definition. This means there are 4 times the number of pixels that a full HD TV has, allowing for sharper and vibrant images. See our TV screen resolution guide.
  • ULED TVs also use UltraSmooth Motion to ensure your movies aren’t blurry and images don’t create ‘halo’ effects.
