CES 2023

As we continue to rely on technology in every aspect of our lives, it’s important to stay up to date on the latest advancements and developments in the tech world. CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2023 accelerated us into the new year – setting the stage for trends and announcements for products we’ll see in the coming year.

As CES is known for showcasing new display technologies, we’ll focus on the most exciting announcements in that space.

LG G3, LG’s new premium OLED TV

The LG G3 OLED TV is LG’s latest flagship 4K OLED TV for 2023.  The TV features LG’s Alpha 9 Gen 6 processor, providing a full Smart TV experience with up to 70% brighter overall picture than non-evo OLED TVs – evo referring to LG’s new generation of OLED panels that focuses on brightness.

This year also brings META technology, which includes MLA –  improving viewing angles by more than 30% and brightness by 60%.

MLA (Micro Lens Array) is a layer of tiny convex lenses (5,117 micro lenses per pixel) over which OLED is applied – allowing for greater brightness and viewing angles up to 160º.

META is an algorithm that precisely analyses brightness information and makes adjustments in each scene in order to express peak brightness accurately even when areas of peak brightness in the image increase.

LG M3 Series 97-inch wireless OLED TV

LG also featured their massive 97” Wireless OLED TV – currently the world’s largest OLED TV.  The M3 uses a Zero Connect Box (kept separately from the TV) which sends video up to 4K 120Hz wirelessly – up to 10m away – to the battery-operated OLED screen.

LG claims that their TV wouldn’t be affected by other Wi-Fi traffic, but this hasn’t been extensively tested by the public.

The Zero Connect Box has three HDMI ports, an antenna port, two USB, an Ethernet, an optical digital out and a serial port for home automation control.

Samsung’s QD-OLED TVs

Samsung revealed two QD-OLED sequels to their S95B – the S95C and S90C – which bring some important upgrades to the lineup.

Both the S95C and S90C have a larger 77-inch form factor, 4K UHD resolution, 144Hz refresh rate (their first QD-OLED with official support for 144Hz), a 0.1ms response time and AMD Freesync Premium Pro certification.

The S95C features OTS Plus Sound and support for Samsung One Connect box, while the S90C uses OTS Lite rather than OTS Plus and lacks support for the Samsung One Connect box but is more affordable.

Samsung launches first Micro-LED TVs

Samsung’s new Micro LED TV lineup revealed at CES 2023 included seven sizes: 50, 63, 76, 89, 101, 114, and 140-inch.  It was revealed that their Micro-LED TV’s will be split into two categories – CX and non-CX models.

The CX variants will be more premium and feature higher refresh rates of 240Hz, while the non-CX models are expected to run at 120Hz.  Additionally, the CX models will have multiview functionality and display content from up to 4 HDMI inputs at the same time.  All models will feature 4K UHD resolutions and 6 HDMI inputs in total.

HTC Vive XR Elite

Weighing in at only 625 grams, the new HTC packs in a lot of impressive technology in their new VR Headset.

The HTC Vive XR Elite features a Snapdragon XR 2 chipset, 12GB RAM and120GB onboard storage.  Additionally, it has a removable battery with hot swapping capabilities.  The battery is reported to last for up to 2 hours, and recharges in about 30 minutes.

The Vive includes a interpupillary distance (IPD) slider for customising the headset to your eyes- bringing content into sharper focus than you can get with just a diopter adjustment, and thanks to adjustable lenses users that need glasses don’t need to wear them while using the headset.

Its display has 110 degree field of view, 4K resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.  HTC also claims that the headset will have directional audio and improved bass over its previous headsets.
