Every year after the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, televisions are our number 1 topic to review and admire. Just when we think we’ve hit the peak of what a television can do, a new year comes upon us and blows us away.
Going into each year’s CES, we have an idea of what we can expect in terms of enhancements to picture quality (refresh rates, contrast ratios etc.). What we don’t know going into each year are the mind-blowing technological advancements that make televisions everywhere jealous.
Some of the coolest advancements we saw during CES 2020 are TVs as thin as a piece of art, TVs that can rotate like a smartphone, and ambient lighting. Let’s look at some of these exciting industry game changers.
Top TVs from CES 2020
Samsung Sero TV
If you weren’t convinced before, you should be now that we are in an age of social media. Which explains why televisions that can rotate to display video in landscape or portrait mode were one of the latest trends unveiled at CES.
The Samsung Sero is making rotating easy for anyone with a Samsung Note 10. Just by turning your phone, you can rotate your television. Others simply need to download an app or use the remote.
LG GX Series 4K OLED TV
All the specs of the LG 2020 OLED model are honestly mostly the same from their 2019 model. Which is not a bad thing, considering their 2019 model is stellar. What places the 2020 LG OLED model on this list is the incredibly thin panel – just .79 inches. Yes, it’s less than an inch!
And no, we aren’t naïve enough to think that it’s just cool to have a razor thin television. What is incomparable about how thin the set is is how much technology is packed into that razor-thin panel. No separate box needed, no soundbar needed… everything you need is packed into that tiny .79-inch panel.
Panasonic HZ2000 OLED
The Panasonic HZ2000 OLED might be our top pick for cool + practical technology advancements. This set has the new addition of Dolby Vision IQ. The technology of Dolby Vision IQ allows the television to adjust its screen based on the level of light in the room. This is done through external sensors on the TV, telling the set how and when to adjust the picture based on if you are having a movie night with the lights down low or watching the morning news with the sub beaming through the window.
If we were to buy one of these 3 televisions based on coolness, it would be the Panasonic HZ2000 OLED. Its coolness is based in functionality and combining cool and functional is what should make-up any home theater experience.
