Samsung Elec, LG Display Get Spotlight at CES

Yet the company keeps investing in microLED TV R&D in parallel, which has the potential for much brighter displays with a higher luminous efficiency, while still offering the pure blacks from OLEDs as it is too a self-emitting technology.

Samsung also worked with McAfee to develop a new security application which is tailored for TV called McAfee Security for TV. The Common Criteria certification is actually aimed at computer security, so it's good to see Samsung being awarded it for their Internet-connected TVs.

Samsung has announced a giant 146in (396cm) TV called The Wall at the CES tech show in Las Vegas. The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with flawless infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology.

LG already supports Dolby Vision HDR in its OLED screens, and its latest televisions will now also support HDR10, the rival HDR specification used by Sony's PS4 Pro and Microsoft's Xbox One X consoles, as well as some streaming services. Moreover, the screen can be customized for different purposes. And doing so won't compromise the display's quality, according to Samsung. The panel is made up of millions of micro-sized chips that emit light individually.

Instagram tests letting users post Stories directly to WhatsApp
Well, for those unaware, Instagram Stories , WhatsApp Status and Facebook Stories are all clones of Snapchat Stories. Facebook is testing another feature which will let you share your Instagram stories on WhatsApp status directly.

The technology will eventually allow for so-called wallpaper screens, which are displays that cover an entire wall of any shape or size, said James McQuivey, a Forrester analyst.

Meanwhile Korean compatriot Samsung's 2018 QLED televisions will come with the Bixby Assistant built in, and access to Samsung's SmartThings platform. It has been available since last April and ships on all Samsung Smart TVs, further boosting security.

Samsung has not yet revealed details on pricing itself.

Samsung is able to make Knox effective because it implements a hardware root of trust security architecture which "incorporates security features across the TV platform stack". For example, you can ask Alexa to search for movies or play Amazon content on a Fire TV. This new TV is more of a technological showcase than a marketable commodity at least for the time being.
