TVs are brighter and more "lively"

Before the start of CES 2022, Samsung has already released the "NFT TV", but the most noteworthy new trend in the "TV industry" this year is mini-LED.

Sony: The world's first QD-OLED 4K TV

Sony's series of new TV products are finally here.

This time, Sony released BRAVIA XR series of new TV products, including:

  • 8K min-LED LCD TV 75/85 inch Z9K;
  • 4K mini-LED LCD TV 65/75/8 5 inch X95K;
  • 4K LCD TV 55/65/75/85 inches X90K;
  • 4K QD-OLED picture quality A95K;
  • 4K OLED TV A90K.
  • 4K OLED TV A80K;

As you can see, mini-LED is the most significant change. This technology will allow the screen to have a higher contrast and higher brightness, and it can display more dark details than an OLED screen.

And the most eye-catching is the world's first QD-OLED 4K TV.

QD-OLED uses quantum dot technology, which can achieve higher light energy efficiency, and also has a double-brightness screen and more vivid color reproduction.

Although this screen panel is supplied by Samsung, Sony made its debut, but this product will not be available until later, and the price is estimated to be announced in the spring, but one thing is certain: it is expensive.

TCL: A more "giant screen" TV

At the CES 2022 TV conference, TCL announced the largest TV in the XL series-a 98-inch 4K QLED TV. It is bigger than last year's 85-inch display. It can be seen that TCL is increasing its investment in giant screens.

The XL series of TVs are already on the market, and the 98-inch flagship is priced at US$8,000.

It also uses TCL's mini-LED display technology. TCL officially announced its third-generation mini-LED technology, and stated that the technology will be first released on 85-inch 8K QLED X925 Pro products.

LG: Enter MicroLED TV

LG released a new generation of OLED TV products at CES 2022, including a new 42-inch model for C series TVs and a new 97-inch model for LG series TVs.

But what is even more surprising is that LG also officially announced at CES 2022 that it is now entering Micro LED TVs. LG showed a 136-inch 4K HDR MicroLED TV, and said that the first batch of large-size MicroLED TVs will be on sale later this year.

Micro LED, like OLED, uses micron-sized LEDs as light-emitting pixel units. However, because of its small chip size, high integration, and self-luminescence, it has advantages in brightness, resolution, contrast, and energy consumption compared to LEDs and OLEDs. Will be stronger on top.

Therefore, it is also considered to be the most advantageous display technology of the next generation, but it is still not the mainstream.

TV technology is undergoing rapid innovation, but the Micro LED TV launched by Samsung previously cost millions of RMB, and the price is still the biggest challenge before this new technology.

Smart homes beginning to communicate

In May of this year, the CSA Alliance launched the Matter standard. Various smart home giants have joined forces to work together. It aims to break the barriers of smart home brands, allowing one app to control all smart homes, and any voice assistant can control every electrical appliance. .

At CES 2020, more and more smart home products based on Matter standards are coming.

Bell blonde a bunch of smart home products

Belkin expanded its smart home product line for the first time through its Wemo brand.

They launched the new Wemo HomeKit smart video doorbell, as well as Wemo smart plugs, smart light switches and smart dimmers.

Among them, the Wemo smart video doorbell is installed outdoors, so you can clearly see the situation outside the door at home. It is equipped with a 4 million pixel camera with a field of view of 178° and can also enhance night vision.

These products all support HomeKit and can be managed and viewed on Apple products, but most importantly, they are based on the Matter standard and will be launched in 25 countries/regions later this year.

Smart light bulb that can monitor health

We are used to using smart watches to track sleep and health, but it is really annoying to wear them all the time. What if you replace it with bulbs that can be found everywhere?

Sengled, a smart lighting equipment company, launched an interesting smart light bulb, which supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, and has the latest radar health monitoring technology built in.

Then, it can track your sleep quality and biometrics measurements, such as heart rate and body temperature, and then monitor your health.

Moreover, if you use multiple smart light bulbs, you can also connect to a health monitoring network, even if you fall down, you can also be reminded.

Similarly, this product is also based on the Matter standard, but the price has not yet been announced and is tentatively scheduled to be launched this winter.

Smart products all over the home

There are more smart home products that will shine at CES 2022.

Schlage, a home security company, has launched a smart lock that can be opened directly with iPhone and Apple Watch.

Masonite directly released the first smart new product, which combines power supply, lighting, video doorbell, and smart lock on one door.

Moen launched a faucet called Smart Faucet with Motion Control. As the name suggests, you can precisely control the water output and adjust the water temperature without touching it, using only gestures or voice. The App can also track these data and monitor the water quality. Safety.

Withings also released a weight loss artifact-their latest Body Scan smart scale, which can not only test basic body data, but also measure body composition in sections, so that you know where your fat is, and then targeted training.

With the gradual popularization of Matter standards, it is foreseeable that there will be more and more smart home products, and existing products will become more and more intelligent.

And some interesting new products

CES has always had a large number of cutting-edge technology products, and this time is no exception. Of course, some are commercial products, and some are just concept products.

Sony's Vision S concept electric car

Yes, Sony has launched a car called the Vision S concept electric car.

At the same time, Sony also announced that it is launching a new department-Sony Mobile. Next, this department will commercialize this electric vehicle and promote the development of electric vehicles.

In fact, last year, the VISION-S 01 car was exposed. This year Sony also showed a new model: the Sony Vision-SUV prototype (VISION-S 02). Some details of the vehicle have not yet been announced. However, it is worth noting that safety is the top priority of this SUV. Sony said that a total of 40 monitoring sensors are installed inside and outside the car to ensure the safety of passengers.

L'Oreal made a handheld hair dyeing machine

In fact, L'Oreal is also a frequent visitor to CES, launching some novel technological inventions every year.

This year, they launched a hair dyeing device called Colorsonic, which allows you to dye your hair easily at home.

It looks like a comb with a large handle, with a row of nozzles on the top, and an inner box for storing dye underneath. The dye can be replaced, and there are 40 colors to choose from. Just press the switch to dye the hair at the angle you choose. It will dye the hair at a frequency of more than 300 swings per minute, making the color look more even, and preventing leakage and dripping. After a few minutes, rinse the hair and dye it successfully.

In addition, L'Oreal also launched a hair coloring system for salon stylists, Coloright, which can use virtual try-on to project colors. There are more than 1500 custom hair colors in the system.

It seems that hair dyeing is becoming more and more digital.

Support Find My tracking cards and bags

Not only Apple's AirTag, but now more and more products become trackers.

Chipolo, a mobile phone accessory manufacturer, launched CARD Spot, which is an ultra-thin Bluetooth anti-lost device, just like a card, only 2.4 mm, can be directly put in the wallet, and then used with Apple’s Find My function. , But one is not cheap, it costs 35 US dollars (about 223 yuan).

Another backpack company, Targus, has also launched a bag that can track items with the Find My function: Cypress Hero.

If this bag is far away from the specified range, it will send a reminder message to the paired mobile phone. The bag also has a positioning function that can be used to make a sound through the mobile phone. Its price is US$149.99 (approximately RMB 956).

A collar that monitors the life of a dog

The last product to be introduced today is a gospel for dog lovers.

Invoxia has made a smart dog collar, which can not only be used as a GPS tracker for the dog, but also can monitor the dog's vital signs.

Although there are many pet trackers, there are very few collars that can track a dog's breathing and heart rate.

The new technology behind it is that traditional trackers usually rely on a combination of accelerometers and GPS sensors. Invoxia’s collars, in order to monitor vital signs such as breathing and heart rate, cooperate with authoritative veterinary cardiologists to develop deep learning artificial intelligence using miniature radar sensors. Smart, even the hairy dogs can monitor their data.

Therefore, unlike human smart watches, it does not need to fit closely to the skin to get accurate heart rate readings, so it can also be easily hung on the dog’s neck.

This collar will be available in the summer of 2022 at a price of 99 US dollars (approximately RMB 631), and the GPS function requires an additional monthly subscription of 12.99 US dollars (approximately RMB 83).

The first day of CES 2022 has ended. In the next few days, there will be a large number of new product releases. We will continue to follow up and report, so stay tuned.
