I bet you that if a 7th gen model was in that shot it would look insanely gray with those camera exposure settings.
When I take pictures of my lcd monitor in a pitch black room I can make the monitor look anywhere ranging from pure black to almost white it's so gray depending on what settings I choose. I usually take overexposed shots of a new lcd monitor to really see how the backlight uniformity is because I'm anal like that.
If I recall correctly, last years shots were not so ridiculously overexposed. In fact, they were taken in a way where they seemed to appropriately capture the 7th gen display while making the 8th gen display look as if it horribly crushed black. The explanation for that was the limited dynamic range of digital cameras.
