TVs are brighter and more "vivid"

Before the start of CES 2022, Samsung has already released the "NFT TV" first, 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 new series of TVs is finally here.

This time, Sony has released new BRAVIA XR series TVs, 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 inch X90K;
  • 4K QD-OLED 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 ratio and higher brightness, and 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, which uses quantum dot technology, can achieve higher light energy efficiency, which means a screen with twice the brightness and more vivid color reproduction.

Although this panel is supplied by Samsung, Sony is the first to launch, but this product will not be available until later, and the price is not expected to be announced until the spring, but one thing is certain: it is expensive.

TCL: A TV with a more "giant screen"

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

The XL series of TVs are already available, with the 98-inch flagship priced at $8,000.

It also uses TCL's mini-LED display technology. TCL officially announced its third-generation mini-LED technology and said it will debut on the 85-inch 8K QLED X925 Pro product.

LG: Entering MicroLED TVs

LG released a new generation of OLED TV products at CES 2022, including a new 42-inch model for the C-series TVs and a 97-inch model for the 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 off a 136-inch 4K HDR MicroLED TV, and said the first large-size MicroLED TVs will go on sale later this year.

Micro LEDs, like OLEDs, use micron-scale LEDs as light-emitting pixel units, but because of their small chip size, high integration, and self-illumination, they are more efficient than LEDs and OLEDs in terms of brightness, resolution, contrast, and energy consumption. will be stronger.

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

TV technology is rapidly innovating, but the Micro LED TV launched by Samsung costs millions of RMB, and the price is still the biggest difficulty in front of this new technology.

Smart homes starting to communicate

In May of this year, the CSA Alliance launched the Matter standard, and various smart home giants have teamed up to cooperate. It aims to break the barriers of smart home brands, allowing one app to control all smart homes, and any voice assistant to control every appliance. .

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

Bell Blonde has a bunch of smart home products

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

They launched the new Wemo HomeKit smart video doorbell, along with products like Wemo smart plugs, smart light switches, and smart dimmers.

These are all HomeKit-enabled and can be viewed on Apple products, but best of all, they're all based on the Matter standard, which will be available in 25 countries later this year.

Smart light bulbs that can monitor health

We're so used to using smartwatches to track sleep and health, but wearing them all the time is annoying. What if it was replaced by light bulbs that can be seen everywhere?

Sengled, a smart lighting company, has launched an interesting smart light bulb that supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as built-in the latest radar health monitoring technology.

It can then track your sleep quality and biometric measurements, such as heart rate and body temperature, to monitor your health.

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

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

Smart products throughout the home

And many more smart home gadgets are all set to shine at CES 2022.

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

Masonite directly released the first smart new product, which integrates power, lights, video doorbells, and smart locks on one door.

Moen has 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, just using 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 even measure body composition in sections, so that you know where your fat is, and then target training.

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

And some interesting new

CES has always been packed with cutting-edge tech 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, and it's called the Vision S Concept Electric Car.

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

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

L'Oreal made a hand-held hair dyeing machine

L'Oreal is actually a frequent visitor to CES, and it launches some novel technological inventions every year.

This year, they launched a hair coloring device called Colorsonic that allows you to easily color your hair at home.

It looks like a comb with a large handle, a row of nozzles at the top, and an inner box below that stores the dye, which can be replaced, and there are 40 colors to choose from. Just flip the switch to color your hair at the angle of your choice, and it will dye your hair at a frequency of more than 300 oscillations per minute, making the color look more even while preventing seepage and dripping, 30 After a few minutes, rinse your hair and you're done.

In addition, L'Oreal has launched Coloright, a hair coloring system for salon stylists that can use virtual try-ons to project colors, with more than 1,500 custom hair colors in the system.

It seems that hair coloring is also going to become more and more digital.

Tracking cards and bags that support Find My

Not only Apple's AirTag, but now, more and more products are turned into trackers.

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

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

This bag will send a reminder message to the paired mobile phone if it is far away from the designated range. The bag also has a positioning function, which can be made to sound through the mobile phone. Its price is $149.99 (about 956 yuan).

Collars to monitor dog's life

The last product to introduce today is a boon for dog lovers.

Invoxia has made a smart dog collar that not only acts as a dog's GPS tracker, but also monitors the dog's vital signs.

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

The new technology behind it is that while traditional trackers often rely on a combination of accelerometers and GPS sensors, Invoxia's collar, in order to monitor vital signs such as breathing and heart rate, worked with leading veterinary cardiologists to develop deep learning artificial intelligence that utilizes tiny radar sensors. Smart, even when worn on hairy dogs, it can also monitor their data.

So, unlike human smartwatches, it doesn't need to fit snugly against the skin for you to get an accurate heart rate reading, so it can also easily hang around your dog's neck.

The collar will be available in summer 2022 for $99 (approximately RMB 631), and GPS functionality will require an additional monthly subscription of $12.99 (approximately RMB 83).

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