Sony has unleashed its new families of BRAVIA XR TVs, which include some huge new 8K TVs but there are some new 4K OLEDs that Sony have just unveiled in their new BRAVIA XR range that are even better.
OLED is the future of TV technology, and while LG dominates it right now there are other players stepping into the OLED game with Sony and its new 4K 120Hz capable BRAVIA XR OLED TVs. The new flagship Sony A90J Master Series OLED is brighter than the previous-gen Sony OLED TVs and it's all thanks to a new aluminum heat shield on the panel.
Sony's new A90J Master Series 4K (OLED) are available in the monsteriosu 83-inch size, but they're also available in 65-inch and 55-inch TV sizes, too. It's a pity there's not 77-inch model here to match LG's 77-inch 4K 120Hz OLED TV offerings.
Sony has just unveiled its next-gen BRAVIA XR range of TVs for 2021, with a bunch of huge LCD and new OLED monitors -- all of which support the latest connectivity and technologies including HDMI 2.1, VRR, and so much more. Check it out:
The new flagship Z9J Master Series 8K (Full-array LCD) TV is a beast, offered at up to a huge 85-inch (as well as a smaller 75-inch model). Both the 85-inch and 75-inch 8K monitors offer a native 7680 x 4320 resolution @ 60Hz, but they can handle the super-smooth 4K 120Hz mode for gaming on the big screen -- both of which are thanks to HDMI 2.1 on-board.
All of Sony's new 2021 TVs including the flagship Z9J Master Series 8K TV use their in-house Cognitive Processor XR, which is the very latest video processing chip that Sony makes. Sony says that the new chip goes beyond normal signal processing, and beyond AI analysis that most TVs have.
Sony has just unveiled its new family of BRAVIA XR TVs, with a very interesting new feature: its new BRAVIA CORE platform. Check it out:
The new BRAVIA XR TVs will be capable of using the new BRAVIA CORE platform, which will see certain Sony Pictures titles being streamed using Sony's new Pure Stream technology. Sony's new Pure Stream technologies sees "near lossless" 4K Blu-ray disc quality video streamed to your BRAVIA XR TV.
The company says its Pure Stream technology can handle up to 80Mbps, but for Ultra HD streaming quality Sony says you'll need 15-25Mbps of bandwidth. Sony's new BRAVIA CORE feature is available on the new MASTER Series Z9J 8K LED, MASTER Series A90J and A80J OLED, and X95J and X90J 4K LED TVs.
TCL has teased an incredible concept at CES 2021 this year, with its new "printed OLED" technology and a 17-inch rollable tablet concept that is right out of the future.
The company teased its new 17-inch rollable OLED tablet concept using their in-house printed OLED display technology, with the 'TCL CS0T' tablet just a few inches thick when it's rolled up. It can be put into a small case, and thrown into a backpack or bag easily.
But when it is un-rolled, it turns into a 17-inch tablet thanks to its dual spring-loaded rollers on each side of the device. When opened, we have a near paper-thin OLED tablet that looks like an old school scroll, which I'm kinda digging, but the company is also promising its printed OLED scrolling display has 100% color gamut, and would cost 20% less than current commercial display technologies.
LG has just announced its new 31.5-inch OLED monitor aimed at professionals, which is now the smallest OLED panel for a PC display released. Introducing LG's new 4K 31.5-inch OLED UltraFine Pro Display (32EP950).
LG's new OLED UltraFine Display (32EP950) rocks a 31.5-inch OLED panel which offers 99% DCI-P3 color space coverage, and 99% of the Adobe RGB. LG is using OLED Pixel Dimming HDR technology, which for professionals working with video and photo editing is a great feature to have.
There's not much else known in terms of specs for LG's new UltraFine OLED Pro monitor, but I'll update the article once LG details it a little more. For now, it's great to see that OLED technology is coming to the PC in mainstream sizes like this new 31.5-inch OLED monitor.
LG might have a transparent OLED TV, a new 83-inch OLED, its smallest OLED TV at 42 inches -- but the company has also teased some future PC gaming displays using OLED technology.
The Korea Herald reports that in addition to the new 83- and 42-inch OLED models, the company is making 20-inch and 30-inch sized OLEDs for PC gaming. The Korea Herald writes: "In addition to the new 83- and 42-inch OLED models, LG Display also seeks to roll out 20-inch and 30-inch sized models for OLEDs in the future, targeting the premium mid-size panel market related to gaming, mobility and computer monitors".
The new 20- and 30-inch OLED gaming monitors will help drive mainstream OLED adoption, which is what we need. OLED is truly beautiful, and the next big step in display technology that will go mainstream in 2021 and 2022.
LG has just unveiled its smallest OLED TV yet, with the introduction of a new 42-inch OLED TV at the all-virtual CES 2021 this week.
The company unveiled plenty of higher-end, much larger OLED TVs but the new 42-inch OLED TV is a few inches smaller than the 55-inch and 48-inch, which was formerly the smallest OLED TV that LG made. The company also added that it plans to boost OLED TV shipments through to 7 million units in 2021, up from the 4.5 million OLED TVs that it shipped in 2020.
LG explained: "We plan to expand our midsize lineup, which includes products in the range of 20-30 inches, in the future, so that we can enlarge our business areas to gaming and mobility in addition to the TV sector".
LG has just unveiled a new monster 27GP950 UltraGear gaming monitor, with a 27-inch 4K Nano IPS panel that will surely look gorgeous -- and it's ultra-smooth @ 160Hz, too.
The new LG 27GP950 UltraGear has a 27-inch 4K Nano IPS panel with 1ms response, and a huge 160Hz refresh rate. LG is using one of its premium Nano IPS panels on the new 27GP950 UltraGear, which will be 4K @ 144Hz out of the box and 4K @ 160Hz when overclocked.
HDMI 2.1 will be included on the LG 27GP950 UltraGear, so you can plug your next-gen PS5 or Xbox Series X/S console right into it and enjoy some next-gen 4K 120Hz gaming. If you're on the PC and with a fast enough graphics card, like the GeForce RTX 3090 or Radeon RX 6900 XT then you'll be able to crank right up to 4K @ 160Hz.
Back in August 2020, we had ASUS announcing an unnamed ROG gaming monitor that packed HDMI 2.1 connectivity at up to 48Gbps, and now the company is officially teasing a ROG monitors with HDMI 2.1 are "coming soon" -- with what I'm sure will be an announcement right around the corner at the all-virtual CES 2021.
We should expect some new high-end ASUS ROG gaming monitors offering not just super-high-end 4K 120Hz monitors, but other features like 10-bit color, the latest in HDR technology, G-SYNC, FreeSync Premium, and so much more. HDMI 2.1 is also capable of 5K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz, all over a single cable.
ASUS will most likely push boundaries with HDMI 2.1 gaming monitors and its ROG brand, so expect 4K 144Hz and beyond, where we might see 4K 160/175/200Hz or something like that -- maybe 1440p and beyond 275Hz with something like 300/320/360Hz. Imagine that.
We had a brief tease of LG's 55-inch transparent OLED TV just as the New Year was about to tick over, but now the company has many more details on its futuristic TV now that the virtual CES 2021 event is upon us.
LG sees a future where we'll be using transparent OLED TVs at the end of our bed, that can pop up just enough to give you a notification bar -- think weather, emails, traffic, the time, etc -- while the company uses its own built-in speakers through LG Display's Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) technology.
Jong-sun Park, LG Display's senior vice president and head of commercial business explains: "Transparent OLED is a technology that maximizes the advantages of OLED and can be used in various places in our daily lives, from stores, shopping malls, and architectural interiors to autonomous vehicles, subway trains, and aircraft. It will grow into a next-generation display that can change the existing display paradigm".
