Samsung and LG will soon lose their lead in the TV market. Their places can be taken by TCL and Hisense

According to Omdia, Samsung and LG TV shipments will top 4.13 million units and 2.58 million units respectively this year, followed by Chinese TCL with 2.45 million units and Hisense with 2.14 million units.

“Chinese TCL and Hisense are competing with each other for growth, like Samsung and LG in the past,” said an anonymous Korean tech executive. He highlighted TCL as a more powerful player that poses a direct threat to Korean competitors.

“What makes TCL more formidable is the fact that it has its own display division — the same strategy as Samsung and LG,” he added.

During the early years of LCD TVs, when Japan’s Sony was the No. 1 TV maker, Samsung and LG began investing heavily in panel production through their display divisions, allowing them to provide competitive prices. Decades later, the Korean duo became the world’s No. 1 and No. 2 TV makers, with a combined market share of almost 50%, while Sony dropped to a distant fifth with a market share of around 7 percent.

Now armed with its own display division, TCL is echoing the success story of Samsung and LG: “This vertical integration strategy will help improve the product quality and pricing strategy of their TVs going forward.”

Another spokesman for the Korean company, who also asked not to be named, said the gap between Korean and Chinese TV makers had narrowed to less than 10%.

“When it comes to LCD TVs, the difference is negligible. That’s why Korean companies are betting big on high-end models like OLED TVs, which are harder to produce but more profitable,” he said, adding that it would take TCL two to three years to catch up with Samsung and LG.

But he stressed that the key strength of Korean brands remains the experience gained over many years. During the COVID-19 lockdown in major Chinese cities, Chinese TV makers have turned their attention to overseas markets such as the US and Europe, but faced high barriers to entry, he said.

Paik Sung-pil, vice president of customer service for LG TVs, also said he felt the pressure of China’s growing presence in the TV market, but stressed that the company maintains an advantage in the premium segment.

“Chinese brands may catch up in TV production, but we still have an edge in processors designed exclusively for OLED TVs,” he told reporters at LG’s booth at IFA.

LG, the unrivaled leader in the OLED TV market, is diversifying its OLED TV lineup and unveiled two new models – the world’s largest 97-inch OLED TV and a foldable OLED TV for gamers – at IFA.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.

10 year old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received

Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 smartphones received Android 13, but not official – as part of the LineageOS project and LineageOS 20 firmware.

10-year-old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received Android 13. True, unofficial

We are talking about an early assembly of LineageOS 20, in which a number of functions do not work: NFC, Bluetooth sound transmission during a call, memory card. Known issues are expected to be fixed as the firmware is updated.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 are ten years old, and you should not expect older devices running the latest Android 13 to run smoothly. Both smartphones had flagship specs for their time, but the 1GB and 2GB of RAM in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 might not be enough for a full system at the moment.

Recall that the basic versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 were running Android 4.0.4 and 4.1.1, respectively. Android 4.3 and 4.4.4, respectively, were released as the final software versions for these smartphones.
