Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.
In 2014, Philips will introduce its first TV with the new Android-based Smart TV platform. They will also launch Ultra HD TVs and TVs with twin tuners, Miracast screen mirroring and a new Cloud TV app that streams TV channels over the internet.

Samsung 9 series with asymmetric design

We expected Samsung to pull up a new astonishing design and we expected a successor to the current 9 series – we just didn’t expect it to look this spectacular and different.

Samsung has released these teaser pictures of the new 9 series, most likely to be named D9000 or D950 when it hit stores later this year. The new 9 series has a LED-backlight (probably Edge LED) and 3D.

The design is spectacular and different. The curved bottom of the display and a metallic stand creates a asymmetric design. Users can also tilt the frame.

Samsung has not detailed if this is actually a TV or a combi PC/TV monitor but judging from the pictures, the screen is not very large. We will have more information about the new 9 series and the entire 2011 flat panel TV line-up from Samsung very soon. Stay tuned
