LG and Samsung wants to be ahead of competition at CES 2020. Companies like OnePlus who were primarily smartphone manufacturers have launched televisions. And, a hoard of cheap models emerge from TCL, Vizio, Vu and many other non-name brands from China, Taiwan.
The big players in an attempt to stay abreast of the demanding home entertainment market is going miles ahead. 4K resolution is still in its early stages because full HD 1080p content is readily available everywhere but you can get UHD movies only if you pay a premium for Netflix and purchase expensive UHD Blurays.
The situation clearly indicates that there is no market for 8K OLED and LCD televisions but nevertheless LG will launch these new products at CES 2020. It won’t be until 2024 or bit earlier we might set the adoption of such high resolution televisions at home.
A total of 8 different 8K model televisions are heading to CES 2020 from LG. The signature LG OLED Series will witness the launch of 88-inch and 77-inch models. The rest will feature Nanocell technology from the brand to bring the highest possible resolution to 75-inch and 65-inch televisions. All these are equipped with more power than an average home computer with the ability to handle AV1 codecs found in YouTube, HEVC and VP9 while they can also deliver 8K 60FPS via a HDMI cable.
The models will be equipped with Alpha9 AI processor from LG in the 2020 variants that also support AI Sound Pro. They will automatically detect voice in a movie to enhance it while keeping other effects in control. LG ThinQ AI tech wrapped with WebOS will be the primary operating system that supports Apple AirPlay 2, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa providing everything in one package. These televisions on paper will support voice commands with all major AI assistants so that you have to use less of the remote control.
