We’ve seen some great products at CES 2022 and TVs are no exception. Although most of these new models are comparable to their 2022 predecessors, there are a few significant improvements on the way that have me enthusiastic. Let’s review the best TVs presented at CES 2022.
Sony Bravia Z9K Master Series 8K
Sony Bravia Z9K Master Series 8K is the first television to use this new screen technology, which promises many of the advantages of OLED without the risk of burn-in. It is powered by Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR, the company says it will deliver the “widest color palette and reproduces naturally beautiful shades and hues.”
The Z9K Master series will have two versions, 75- and 85-inch, and they will be offered in 8K resolution. Right now, official prices are not announced.
LG G2 OLED Evo
LG used CES 2022 to show off its largest and smallest OLED TVs ever made. The little 42-inch version will be ideal for individuals who don’t have the room or money for a bigger TV because the 97-inch LG G2 on display shown at CES 2022 is just huge.
This TV surely comes with LG’s OLED Evo technology. The main advantage of OLED Evo is greater brightness due to enhanced heat dissipation and more sophisticated algorithms. Additional features planned for LG’s 2022 OLED TVs include thinner bezels and an upgrade to WebOS 22 that allows for private user profiles.
TCL XL Collection QLED TV
TCL introduced a huge 98-inch XL Collection QLED TV with Google TV. If you’re concerned about going to the movies because of the pandemic, the 98-inch XL Collection QLED might be a fantastic way to replicate the experience at home. This big TCL TV offers support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos in addition to having a variable refresh rate and a game mode. TCL XL Collection QLED TV will be sold for $8,000.
Sony A95K QD-OLED TV
Right now, Sony’s current flagship TVs utilize LG’s OLED technology. The Bravia XR A95K TV, however, is based on a Samsung-made panel that is quite different from the ones we are used to.
Sony A95K TVs will have two, 65-inch and 55-inch, versions and they will come with a 4K QD-OLED (quantum dot organic light-emitting diode) display.
There will be 4 HDMI inputs on these TVs. Two of these ports offer full support for HDMI 2.1. This way console gamers will be able to enjoy their favorite titles at 4K and 120Hz.
Hisense has been building its reputation on offering TVs at a lower price than rivals while still providing many of the same features. Hisense announced at CES 2022 that the company will be using miniLED technology in their flagship TVs: U9H and U8H.
There are 3 versions of Hisense U8H you can choose from: 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch. Hisense U8H will offer low latency modes for gamers and a variable 120Hz refresh rate for a better experience.
The TV is capable of reaching 1,500 nits brightness and it will be sold for $1,099. The shipping will begin in the summer.
Samsung QN900B 8K Neo
Samsung is also fully committed to miniLED, and while the QN900B 8K Neo isn’t all that different from previous models, it does introduce a few welcome changes.
The most significant change Samsung made to the 2022 models is known as HDR mapping, which boosts the luminance scale from 12-bit to 14-bit for greater brightness accuracy. This TV also uses Object Depth Enhancer, an AI method that improves depth by distinguishing the forefront objects from the background in a scene.
When it comes to sound quality Samsung QN900B 8K Neo has no joke. It supports Active Voice Amplifier, Object Tracking Sound, and SpaceFit Sound. We don’t know the official pricing yet but last year’s model had a $5,000 starting price.
89-inch Samsung MicroLED TV
Samsung debuted a new 89-inch microLED TV at CES 2022 that could actually fit in your living room, but its prohibitively expensive price implies it will only be purchased by the ultra-rich. The price of the previous 110-inch model was about $150,000.
The LED backlighting system for this microLED TV utilizes 25 million micrometer-sized LEDs that individually create light and color, making it superior in terms of colors and brightness.
Pansonic has not sold televisions in the United States for many years, but it is returning to CES 2022 with a product that will be desired by every American. The LZ2000 is a significant upgrade over the original in virtually every way—it’s brighter, has gaming features, and comes with a new speaker array.
Enhancements include utilizing sensors to determine the room light color temperature and adjusting the image to achieve a “more natural” viewing experience that’s more comfortable in low-light settings. The TVs utilize Panasonic’s Master OLED Pro, which promises improved brightness.
Best home office products from CES 2022
The new Game Control Board settings, which automatically detect Nvidia GPUs and improve 60Hz latency, as well as support HDMI 2.1 ports for 4K, 120Hz gaming, will be great news to gamers. There are no official price announcements yet.
