Hopefully Samsung will put more effort into PQ this year also.My CES Samsung prediction:
Samsung will show the usual bunch of extravagant TVs that no one can afford. They will launch more OLEDs (flat and curved) with more sizes. UHD will be the focus for their main line.
G8500 (or G9000): UHD, full array local dimming 140 zones, 55"-70".
G8000: UHD, full array local dimming 90 zones, reasonable price, 55"-70".
G7000: UHD, edge lit with micro dimming ultimate, 46"-60".
G6000: 1080p, edge lit with micro dimming pro, 40"-65".
I'm sure UHD and OLED will be the focus this year for everyone. With OLEDs already dropping to around $7000, I wouldn't be surprised to see flat 55" 1080p OLEDs at an affordable price by Q3 next year. I'm also sure that UHD will trickle down to the upper mid range models next year. UHD prices have already fallen to a somewhat reasonable price (at least for Sony). I think UHD will become more of a standard next year.
Either way I can't wait.
I can't wait either, always look forward to it every year, too bad I can't be there live. Just a note , I read somewhere that Samsung is skipping the G series to H series for 2014. Don't know exactly why though, could be just a rumour. It would be awesome if they had their high end full array but highly doubtful.
