With CES upon us, tech companies are throwing down their respective gauntlets to establish any advantageous market position they can this year. Despite the cacophony of new tech being introduced at CES 2022, one of the perennial battlegrounds in the tech space is smart televisions. Each year, tech companies throughout the globe release newer, more sophisticated models of TVs, each becoming more high-def, faster, and more efficient. However, electronic juggernauts LG and TCL are upping the ante, quite literally, by making the two biggest OLED and QLED smart TVs, respectively.
Everyone loves a big TV, and apparently “everyone” includes LG and TCL, given that the tech giants respectively made massive 97″ and 98″ TVs. While the gargantuan size of their TVs is nothing short of astounding, both companies made sure that the performance capabilities of their displays matched their giant stature. For the Korean-based LG, their newly introduced G2 series of OLED TVs use self-lighting pixels that operate individually in order to create ultra-deep blacks and more vibrant natural colors, thus ensuring a greater level of contrast. They don’t feature backlights, allowing them to be thinner and lighter than other TVs on the markets. Furthermore, these new G2 TVs are powered by LG’s new Alpha 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor to deliver unprecedented brightness, and they also feature ThinQ AI technology to allow your LG TV to act as a hub for your smart home devices.
For the Chinese-based TCL, the new 98″ Class XL Collection ultra-high-definition QLED TV is pegged to be the ultimate addition to your home theater. The behemoth TV employs quantum dot technology for optimized color and contrast, while also sporting a bevy of technological features such as Dolby Atmos surround sound, 4K resolution, Game Studio Pro for enhanced gaming, and a built-in Google Chromecast. LG has yet to release pricing details for its new 97″ G2 TV, but TCL’s 98-incher will retail for $8,000. Neither has a release date as of yet.
