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 OLED-TV at IFA 2012

At a pre-IFA press conference, Michael Zoelle, European Marketing Director of TV/AV, revealed to Nikkei that Samsung plans to launch their OLED-TV at IFA 2012 in Berlin. Pricing details and specifications will not be revealed before IFA 2012 either, Samsung says.

Samsung first exhibited a 55-inch OLED-TV at CES 2012 in Las Vegas back in January. LG also exhibited a 55-inch OLED-TV, and it was recently reported that LG will launch their OLED-TV in May 2012. Reports that Samsung plans to introduce before the 2012 summer Olympics have also emerged but these rumors remain unconfirmed.

Michael Zoelle also told Nikkei;
- "Also, we will exhibit TVs with totally-new designs and concepts as well as totally-new premium TVs."

What Zoelle is referring to is unclear but Samsung has revealed new model at IFA in the past. Right now Samsung’s 2012 LED and plasma models have started to become available in both Europe and the US.

IFA 2012 will take place from August 31 to September 5, 2012 in Berlin. Learn more about Samsung’s 55” OLED-TV here.
