TV Lineup
What's New in 2022

Updated

With 2021 behind us, TV companies are starting to shift their focus to releasing their 2022 lineups. Like almost everything over the past two years, CES 2022 was held virtually, and most companies announced their new lineups then. Some manufacturers have come out with new technologies, including Samsung's long-anticipated QD-OLED technology and updated OLED panels from LG Display. 2021 was the year of the Mini LED; will 2022 be the year of the Quantum-Dot OLED?

You can see which models we've purchased throughout the year, as well as vote on your favorites, on our suggestion list.

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. This list mainly focuses on U.S. models; some lineups may be different in other countries.

Samsung

Samsung's focus this year is mainly on improving the software that powers their smart TVs, with mainly incremental improvements to most of their lineup. The exception to that is their new QS95B, which is their first Quantum Dot OLED display (QD-OLED), which uses blue OLED panels combined with quantum dot color filters to achieve a brighter image and more accurate colors. Gaming is a definite priority for Samsung this year, as most premium models have new gaming features, including an all-new Gaming Hub, a 144Hz refresh rate, and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on all four ports. They've also refreshed their Lifestyle TVs, including the Frame, Serif, and Sero. All three models now feature matte finishes to reduce glare, and there are new mounting options for the Frame, including a rotating slim mount.

For the most part, Samsung is keeping with the same model names as last year, substituting 'B' instead of 'A' for the year suffix. They've also added the 'S' lineup for their new QD-OLED displays, starting with the S95B. Unfortunately, there are still some significant differences between U.S. and European models.

Update 3/17/2022: Samsung has now announced the full details for the S95B, as well as their 8k lineup and Lifestyle TVs. We've updated the table below with the confirmed information.

Update 02/22/2022: Samsung has announced that their Neo QLED TV lineup will be available on April 6th, 2022. They haven't announced a released date for their entry-level.

Sony

Sony announced most of their 2022 lineup at CES 2022. It's an impressive lineup, with multiple high-end models that take advantage of the latest technology, including their first QD-OLED TV, the Sony A95K, and their first two Mini LED TVs: the 8k Sony Z9K and the 4k Sony X95K. All their mid to high-end models use the same processor, the new Cognitive Processor XR, but the entry-level Sony X80K uses the older X1 Processor and is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and slower HDMI 2.0 bandwidth. According to Sony, all models except the X85K will launch with advanced gaming functionality, including variable refresh rate support, 4k @ 120Hz gaming, and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on at least two of the HDMI inputs. Sony has also refreshed the remote on their high-end models, including a "Find Remote" feature that works through the TV's built-in voice assistant.

Sony is using the same naming convention as they've had in the past few years. Their OLEDs start with A, the premium 8k starts with Z, while the other 4k LEDs start with X. The suffix at the end of each model code is K in 2022.

LG

LG also announced most of their 2022 lineup at CES 2022. Most of their models are very similar to last year, with nothing groundbreaking coming out for most of them. They've simplified their lineup a bit, removing the number of sizes some models are available in. LG has upgraded their EVO panel from last year, and the new G2 is supposed to be significantly brighter than last year's, whereas the C2 is advertised to be more efficient, thanks to an improved heat dissipation system. They also plan on releasing OLEDs in new sizes, including a 42" and a massive 97" G2. Unlike Samsung, they don't appear to have any plans to release QD-OLED displays. Not much has changed on their LCD models, as the lineup is nearly identical to the 2021 lineup. Not much is changing with their proprietary smart interface, known as webOS, either, but they're now using the year to identify the software version instead of version numbers. So instead of 2022 models shipping with webOS 7, the new version is now known as webOS 22.

TCL

TCL didn't reveal their full 2022 lineup at CES in 2022, instead, they announced a few new models in their "XL" lineup, and showcased some of the new technology they've been working on. Both of the new "XL" TVs announced run Google TV instead of Roku. The X925, or X9 for short, also uses TCL's Mini LED technology, and is much thinner than most TVs on the market. TCL also confirmed that they're working on updated versions of the 5, 6, and 8-Series Roku TVs and that they'll have more to announce in the coming months. Once we hear more about their 2022 plans we'll update this article.

Hisense

Typically considered to be an entry-level budget brand, Hisense has released more premium models in recent years. They've refreshed their lineup for 2022, updating the specs on most of their 4k models, adding ATSC 3.0 tuners to most models, and updating most of their lineup to the new Google TV smart interface instead of Android TV. Hisense has also expanded their entry-level lineup, adding a larger version of the A6H and a new, smaller TV with a 1080p screen. They've also carried over the U9DG dual cell TV and their only 8k model, the U800GR, to this year. Unfortunately, as with previous years, these Hisense models are only available in North America. Any international models, even those with similar or even identical names, are completely different models.

Vizio

Vizio has finally started lifting the curtain on their 2022 lineup, which they call their 2023 lineup. As previously announced, the 50" MQX supports up to a 240Hz refresh rate, but only with a 1080p native resolution, making it a great choice for competitive PC gamers. The MQX Series supports 4k 120Hz over HDMI 2.1, but the lower models are all limited to 60Hz and don't support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth.

Panasonic

Panasonic recently announced their new flagship OLED TV - the LZ2000. The successor to last year's popular JZ2000, it's very similar overall, but features an upgraded processor and runs the latest version of Panasonic's proprietary smart interface. Unfortunately, Panasonic TVs aren't currently available in North America, so we're unable to buy and test them.

Conclusion

2022 is shaping up to be an impressive year for the TV industry. Manufacturers seem to be mainly focused on improving and perfecting the new technologies released last year. From wider adoption of Mini LED backlights to the first QD-OLED displays, it should be an exciting year. As processor technology continues to improve, smart features are getting faster and more powerful every year, and it's nice to see manufacturers focusing on improving the overall user experience. Sadly, there are still issues with the global supply chain, so it's likely that TVs this year will be more expensive than previous models, and there may be availability issues as new models are released.

We will continuously update this list as new models are released and we test them. Let us know in the discussions if we've missed something, and let us know in the suggestion tool which TVs you want us to test next!
