With the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite out of the way, Samsung is free to shine the spotlight on its other consumer electronics products, particularly its home entertainment products. Yes, Samsung is proudly showing off its "nearly-bezel-less" Infinity Screen applied to TVs. The Q950TS 8K QLED TV isn't its only highlight though, in addition to upgrades to existing TVs and Soundbars, Samsung is also unveiling The Sero, a TV that's designed to mirror your vertically-oriented smartphone screen.

VIZIO 2020 SmartCast TVs include first OLED, new IQ and game engines

While big names like Samsung and LG are pushing 8K TVs to the market, VIZIO is focusing on TVs that will better appeal to the masses for their price value. That's not to say these SmartCast TVs are on the cheap side of features. In fact, all of VIZIO's new 2020 sets boast 4K HDR and new silicon to drive both image and gaming experiences higher. And for the first time in its history, VIZIO is launching its first OLED TV that adds deep blacks and infinite contrast on top of all that.

LG 2020 TV lineup boasts Real 8K support, AI picture and audio recognition

The world has just now finally settled down on 4K but TV makers are already bored and are pushing 8K products to consumers. And as with any new format or nascent standard, it is also an opportunity for rivals to try to one-up each other by claiming superiority in ways few consumers might even understand. Samsung may have just claimed the title of having the first TVs certified by the 8K Association but LG is now boasting is doing better with its eight new 2020 TVs, all of which are promised to deliver "Real 8K" experience.

LG rollable OLED TV at CES 2020 drops in from the ceiling

LG rollable OLED TV at CES 2020 drops in from the ceiling

LG has a new 65-inch rollable OLED UHD TV to show for CES 2020, very similar to what they last showed in the USA at CES 2019. Per LG, this new television concept "can be installed naturally as part of the space and can only be used down when needed." This might remind you of a classroom from your childhood, where a projector screen would be pulled (manually or automatically) from an overhead roll. Now that roll can be the television itself - not just a white panel of material for reflecting projected light.

The future of Star Wars is TV, not movies

The future of Star Wars is TV, not movies

Outside of the original trilogy, Star Wars movies have been something of a mixed bag. The prequels have been famously derided by almost everyone for two decades, and though the reaction to the sequel trilogy has been better, it also hasn’t been unified. The Star Wars sequels, particularly The Last Jedi, have been divisive films, and now that the trilogy is complete, there are a number of people who are left feeling like LucasFilm and Disney didn’t have a coherent vision for the sequel trilogy before they set out to make it.

Samsung to show off true bezel-less TVs at CES 2020 next week

Samsung to show off true bezel-less TVs at CES 2020 next week

With the Galaxy S11 (or Galaxy S20) and Galaxy Fold 2 announcements expected to happen in mid-February, one might presume that Samsung's CES 2020 presence will be low-key. That, however, might be highly unlikely. Even disregarding the oddities to come from its C-Lab incubation programs, the company is expected to announce the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite there as well. Even those, however, might be overshadowed by Samsung's new TVs that will make the bold claim of truly having no bezels at all.

Nokia Smart TV made by Flipkart joins OnePlus TV as an India-exclusive

You don't often hear about Android TV these days, except when news of new devices come up. Usually, the big manufacturers simply list it as a yet another bullet point in their feature lists. For companies still new to the smart TV market, however, that could very well be one of the most important aspects of the product. Last September, OnePlus dipped its toes in that market by launching the Android TV-based OnePlus TV in India. Now it is being joined by the Nokia Smart TV which, just like Nokia phones, isn't made by Nokia at all.
