Consumer Electronics Show 2017, one of the biggest tech shows in the world, brings in its folds massive expectations regarding the arrival of exciting devices such as smartphones, drones, laptops, TVs, and more.
This year's event is no different and has not disappointed tech buffs. The CES 2017 marked the launch of several top-notch TVs from companies such as Sony, LG, Xiaomi, and Samsung to name a few.
Here's a look at the Top 3 TVs to have debuted at the CES 2017 — the Xiaomi Mi TV 4, Sony's 4K XBR-A1E Bravia OLED TV series, and LG's Signature OLED 4K HDR W TV series.
Xiaomi Mi TV 4
Xiaomi took the wraps off its uber-thin and modular Mi TV 4, which is practically bezel-less and just 4.9mm thick. The Mi TV, Xiaomi asserts, is 30 percent slimmer than the iPhone 7.
The TV has a "patch wall' software and a soundbar which boasts 10 speakers, two wireless speakers, a subwoofer, and support for Dolby Atmos surround sound.
The Mi TV 4 will be available in three sizes — 49 inches, 55 inches, and 65 inches. Xiaomi is expected to release the Mi TV 4 in China later this year. The company has not disclosed an exact date of release. Hugo Barra, the company's CEO, has revealed that the 65-inch variant without Dolby Atmos will be priced below $1,500, the Dolby Atmos variant will be pricier and should be under $2,000.
Sony 4K XBR-A1E Bravia OLED TV Series
Sony's XBR-A1E Bravia 4K OLED TV holds the promise of "'unprecedented black levels, rich and lifelike color, dynamic contrast, blur-less image, and a wide viewing angle."
"Sony delivers incredible innovation and excitement to customers with all of our premium 4K HDR TVs through a powerful mix of technology and our exclusive image processing," said Sony's COO Mike Fasulo.
The A1E Bravia series will come in three screen sizes — 55 inches, 65 inches, and 77 inches. The display has a thin form factor courtesy Sony porting the innards of the TV onto the stand that the display uses for support.
Sony has not disclosed the HDR compatible TV lineup's pricing as well as the release date.
LG Signature OLED 4K HDR W TV Series
LG outed its Signature OLED 4K HDR W TV series at the CES 2017. The W stands for "wallpaper" and is a reference to the company's new "picture-on-wall" design.
Like the Xiaomi offering, the LG HDR TV series also packs in the Dolby Atmos soundbar, which is located at the bottom. The 65-inch variant of the TV is just 2.57mm thick.
"The W7 OLED TV series builds on LG OLED's revolutionary pixel dimming control technology, which renders perfect black without any light leakage to offer a limitless contrast ratio, with one billion possible colors," notes the company.
LG has not spilled the beans on the pricing and release of the 65-inch and 77-inch models.
