According to tech site Engadget , the reason for changing the display was that Panasonic wasn’t happy with the transparency of the previous screen.

“The OLED screen is made from a fine mesh, embedded into the glass sliding door,” explained Engadget.

“While the TV image is visible even with the backlighting on, once it’s dimmed the image is clear and bright enough to be almost indistinguishable from existing televisions.”
