TV Lineup
What's new in 2020

With CES behind us, now's a great time to look at what each brand has announced so far for their 2020 TV lineups. It should be an interesting year, with wider adoption of new technologies, including HDMI 2.1, more 8k sets from more brands, and some unique new industry standards, including Filmmaker mode.

Brand Lineups

These lists are based on what has been confirmed so far. We'll update them as new details are confirmed and as new models are announced throughout the year.

Sony

Sony announced a few new models at this year's CES. Beyond what's listed below, they've also announced a slew of new budget and mid-range models, but many of them will only be released in Europe. Strangely, Sony has announced the first models with full HDMI 2.1 ports, but only on the Z8H and X900H. We don't know if any of the other models support it.

U.S. Model U.S. Sizes Type Resolution Refresh Rate
Z8H 75", 85" LED 8k 120Hz
A9S 48" OLED 4k 120Hz
A8H 55", 65" OLED 4k 120Hz
X950H 49", 55", 65", 75", 85" LED 4k 120Hz
X900H 55", 65", 75", 85" LED 4k 120Hz
X800H 43", 49", 55", 65", 75", 85" LED 4k 60Hz

Samsung

At this year's CES, Samsung only announced a few new models, focusing on their high-end 8k lineup and a few "lifestyle" models, including a new Frame TV and the unique Sero TV, which automatically rotates to portrait orientation when casting portrait content from your phone. Interesting this year is that Samsung has shifted their entire lineup, which may cause some confusion, as models are no longer directly comparable with the same series from last year. For example, the TU8000 is now an entry-level TV, and isn't at all comparable to last year's RU8000.

Update 02/13/2020: Many of Samsung's 2020 models have been added to their website, and we've updated the table below. We expect other sizes and models to be announced soon, and we'll update the table when we know more.

LG

LG announced most of their medium and high-end models at CES. LG is investing heavily in new technologies, with three 8k models, and confirmed support for at least some HDMI 2.1 features on almost their entire lineup.

TCL

Unlike most brands, TCL didn't announce a full lineup at CES. This isn't really unexpected, as TCL just updated much of their lineup in September 2019. Instead, TCL gave us a brief glimpse of the features they plan to support in 2020. TCL plans on releasing their first 8k LED TV this year, as well as an improved Mini-LED panel, which uses a technology they call 'Vidrian'.

Beyond that, TCL also announced that at least some of their 2020 models will support HDMI 2.1, including support for variable refresh rates and eARC. We don't know if every model will support HDMI 2.1, or which features exactly, but we'll update this space once we know more. They also announced that they plan on adding support for variable refresh rates to some of their 2019 models.

Vizio

Vizio's 2020 lineup appears to be mainly focused on features, and appears to target gaming. They've added HDMI 2.1 to almost all models, and all HDMI ports now have the same low input lag on most models. We don't know yet which features of HDMI 2.1 they'll support, though. Vizio has also added a new gaming engine to the M, P, and P-X models. This new gaming engine adds support for FreeSync variable refresh rate, as well as support for 4k @ 120Hz inputs and auto low-latency mode.

Vizio has also announced plans to release their first OLED TV. We don't know much about it yet, or when it'll be released, but we'll update this page once we know more.

U.S. Model U.S. Sizes Type Resolution Refresh Rate
P-Series Quantum X 65", 75", 85" LED 4k 120Hz
P-Series Quantum 65", 75" LED 4k 120Hz
M-Series Quantum (M8) 55", 65" LED 4k 60Hz
M-Series Quantum (M7) 50", 55", 65" LED 4k 60Hz
V-Series 40", 43", 50", 55", 58", 60", 65", 70" LED 4k 60Hz

Konka

Relatively unknown in the U.S., Chinese manufacturer Konka has decided to re-enter the U.S. market this year. We don't know much about these TVs yet, but we'll update this table once we find out more.

U.S. Model U.S. Sizes Type Resolution Refresh Rate
X11 55", 65" OLED 4k Unknown
Q7 50", 55", 65", 75" QLED 4k Unknown
U5 43", 50", 55", 65", 75" LED 4k Unknown
H3 32", 40" LED 720p (32"), 1080p (40") Unknown

Philips

The Philips brand is licensed out to two different companies: TP Vision in Europe and a few other countries, and Funai in the U.S. Because of this difference, Philips TVs sold in Europe usually aren't available in North America. At CES this year, though, Funai announces plans to bring the Philips OLED 804, one of their most popular TVs in Europe, to the U.S. for the first time. Although technically a 2019 model, as this will be released in the U.S. for the first time we're including it here.

Hisense

Hisense has updated their entire lineup this year, and has also announced plans to bring the unique dual-layer LCD screen to the U.S. for the first time. Their core lineup appears to have mainly minor improvements, but we don't know much yet.

U.S. Model U.S. Sizes Type Resolution Refresh Rate
XD9G 65" LED 4k Unknown
H9G 55", 65" LED 4k Unknown
H8G 50", 55", 65", 75" LED 4k Unknown
H65G 43", 50", 55", 65", 75", 85" LED 4k 60Hz
H55G 32", 43" LED 1080p 60Hz
H4G 32", 40", 43" LED 720/1080p 60Hz

Panasonic

Although Panasonic announced many new models for 2020, as they aren't sold in the U.S., we don't currently have any plans to test them.

Conclusion

2020 is shaping up to be an interesting year for the TV market. The highly-anticipated releases of the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft's new Xbox seem to be a driving factor in the industry this year, with most TV manufacturers adding features that target these new game consoles.
