Panasonic, a Japanese company, has listed the upcoming MZ1500 series of 4K OLED TV models on its French website, set for release later this year.

It’s worth noting that certain aspects may still change before the official release.

The Panasonic MZ1500 series plans three sizes: 48, 55, and 65 inches, all offering 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) with a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. It features dynamic HDR formats, including Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ Adaptive, across the board.

While the 48-inch model boasts a classic OLED panel and is equipped with two 15-watt speakers, the larger 55 and 65-inch models feature Master OLED Pro and an additional 20-watt subwoofer. All models now support Dolby Atmos.

The operating system is Panasonic’s proprietary My Home Screen in the current version 8.0, complemented by an HCX Pro AI providing the necessary computing power to enhance image quality using AI algorithms.

For an optimal gaming experience, the new True Game Mode incorporates color accuracy features from movies into the gaming realm. Enhanced HDR Tone Mapping ensures source-oriented expression from gaming devices. True Game Mode is calibratable, displaying the Calman Calibrated logo after adjustment with Portrait Displays’ Calman Color calibration software.

Gamers will appreciate not only 4K at 120 Hz but also features like ALLM, VRR, FreeSync Premium, and G-Sync compatibility. The interface selection includes Bluetooth, CI+, HbbTV, HDMI 2.1 (with eARC), RJ-45, S/PDIF, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, WLAN, and a tuner for DVB-C/-S2/-T2. The Panasonic MZ1500 series comes with an integrated Chromecast.
