CES 2020 took place until Wednesday, with loads of new products, unconventional concepts, and notable debates about security among tech giants. However, if there is a prominent trend, the most easily recognizable in the whole event, it is the frantic appearance of the 8K TV army. They are present everywhere; You can’t step beyond 3 meters without noticing the huge, gigantic screens with magnificent colors, equipped with next-generation technologies right before your eyes.
Remember at CES 2019 last year, Samsung overwhelmed the industry by bringing the first QLED 8K TVs of all sizes, all equipped with content upscale technology from regular resolution up to level 8K with AI.
At that time, 8K was still something quite strange, many people said that it appeared too soon, when the new 4K TV began to be launched, not long ago, the price was still quite high. , and 4K content only counts on the fingers, let alone 8K.
But Samsung was clearly one of the big names in the TV industry, when shortly thereafter, it was also the first company to commercialize 8K TVs – bringing the TVs of the future to consumers. (In Vietnam, Samsung held its first 8K TV launch in April 2019). While the first people to spend money on 8K TVs were definitely not “average” consumers, Samsung could see the trend of the future and be bold in its decision.
Turn 8K into a real trend
At CES 2020 this year, Samsung continued to bring a series of QLED 8K TVs, including a model bearing the code Q950TS with an ultra-thin screen bezel, achieving a screen-to-body ratio of up to 99%, with the same quality. Outstanding image not only compared to the same QLK 8K TVs but also with other competitors.
Not only Samsung, fellow LG also brought CES 2020 to 8 new 8K TV models with sizes from 65-inch to 88-inch. Not to mention Sony, TCL, Hisense, and Vizio. After Samsung, these big TV manufacturers all had 8K TV models to market, and this year, they continue to launch 8K TVs with smaller sizes, thereby further popularizing the product line. New to consumers in general, instead of just for a few of the “giants” as last year. It can be seen that the 8K TV trend has been shaped by Samsung since last year and now is becoming more popular than ever.
In addition to CES, there will be two major international events in 2020 where we will continue to witness the proliferation of the 8K trend: the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and the launch event of Sony PlayStation. 5 and Xbox Series X – two console models that can bring 8K gaming experience to consumers. Manufacturers will surely accelerate the preparation of 8K TV models in time for launching these events, so we can expect more new 8K products to be announced in the near future. .
No doubt. 8K TV has officially become a true trend, a new standard, a potential market that every big man and less famous TV manufacturers want to participate in.
