Dec 27, 2016: It would be very interesting to watch for the upcoming CES 2017 in Las Vegas as two major TV manufacturers will vie for leadership with their next-generation TV technology.
Two leading Korean companies dominate the industry for next-generation TV technologies. While Samsung Electronics focuses on LCD-based quantum dot TVs, LG Electronics focuses on OLED TVs.
Unlike these Korean manufacturers, Japanese companies Sony and Panasonic and Taiwanese companies Innolux and AUO are focusing more on higher level of resolution in their TVs.
While Samsung and LG focus on 4K (3,840 x 2,160) UHD, Japanese and Taiwanese brands want to get the upper hand by focusing on the development of 8K (7,680 x 4,320) TVs.
At CES 2016, LG had offered a new Signature OLED series of TVs, which included the OLED G6 and OLED E6. LG is still pushing for 4K OLED screens while others are focusing on LCD. At CES 2017, LG is expected to offer more 4K OLED screens with HDR and Dolby Vision support, with better picture performance—with improved contrast and brightness levels to enhance HDR images.
On the other hand, Samsung will offer LCD TVs and a new range of QLED TVs.
