Technically speaking, the Special Edition is compatible with the regular LG OLED C2. LG has already installed the Evo Panel in some C1 OLED TVs, where you have to “unlock” the light output higher in the service menu, but you risk the warranty. New, on the other hand, is the fifth generation of the ARM CPU, which should enable a better upgrade, and the new WebOS 22, with which it is possible to wirelessly transfer content from mobile devices to the TV via NFC, among other things.
