Planning to purchase a new Television for 2019? With tons of new gadgets and appliances set to launch by next year, you’ll surely have dozens of options. However, only a few months after these are released that users will discover the good, the bad, and the ugly. So to ensure that you’re getting a TV that’s for the money, we scouted the options ahead.
Expect it to be thinner, wider, and bolder with the 8K technology. Here are five units that we look forward to seeing next year:
Samsung Q900 8K TVs
If there’s one brand you should keep an eye on, it would be Samsung. Just this October, they started mass producing and shipping the Q900 units. Just in time for next year, you’ll be one of the first people to witness the new technology that this Television bears.
This has the Quantum 8K Processor paired with the new 8K resolution. Q900 also has an 8K AI upscaling for the best clarity you can ever see. Housed in an 85-inch screen, this is a champ in home entertainment.
For this model, Samsung focused on efficiency as much as it paid attention to clarity. It has a slate of new smart solutions and enhancements. One of these is the SmartThings where you can access media, information, and other digital files.
It’s like 4K sharpened and taken into new heights. Since it uses brilliant quantum dots, this TV projects more dynamic images. From intense blacks to burst of bright colors, this should be on your living room. You can also hear pin drops from your favorite shows!
- Samsung's QLED is certified to deliver 100% colour volume. QLED technology, unlike others, is able to transform light into breath-taking colour without degradation over time
- Relax with a TV that adapts to give you the very best 4K picture, targeted sound and personalised TV recommendations. Experience a smarter way to watch and enjoy TV
- Stay one step ahead of the competition with picture and sound that adapts as fast as you game. Never miss an overtaking move in your favourite racing game thanks to incredibly low lag rates
- Turn your TV screen into a decorative feature, displaying useful information, your own photos or by blending it into your surroundings. Just take a picture, upload it to your TV and blend it into your décor making the big blank screen a thing of the past
- QLED senses nearby colours in the room and applies them to a beautiful design on screen
LG 8K OLED 2019 TV
Here comes Samsung’s biggest rival: the LG 8K TV. Each year, these two brands stage a show-off of their new Television sets. True enough, LG won’t be left out on the 8K trend. At the same IFA event where Q900 debuted in Berlin, LG released its own take of the new technology.
First, LG boasts an 88-inch screen that got dozens of eyes glued to it. It was the biggest OLED TV to date and is focused on true 8K resolution. LG kissed 4K goodbye, unlike Samsung that keeps emphasizing the impact of the old technology to the new.
The pixel density of this LG TV makes it jaw-dropping at any angle. LG also emphasized that since 8K is a high-scale resolution, it should never be below the 80-inch mark. Well, they give an extra three inches from what Samsung can offer.
The intense black colors on this LG TV look very inky which helps the brighter colors pop more.
Sony Z9F Master Series TV
Don’t forget that Sony is also a master of audiovisual technology. In fact, they are starting to produce and ship their Z9F model. It may not be the 8K type that’s ruling the latest news, but it does really well on a variety of aspects.
Two years after the release of the Z9D version, the Z9F is packed with Sony’s exclusive X1 processor. It aims to provide topnotch quality that will still impress professional studio viewers. As a 4K VA Television, it elevates the quality of usual 4K sets.
It bears the color richness of OLED TVs while championing every feature of LED TVs. It’s ultimate realism in the fraction of the cost of most 8K television to be marketed next year. This Sony TV is picture-perfect in every angle so all the viewers will have the same viewing experience.
The processor is the star of the show here. It’s a big risk for Sony to make but the brand succeeded in making a name for its own technology.
