2021’s best TVs will lean into gaming, sound and ambience – but not picture quality Samsung The Wall 2021

Another year, another round of TV announcements. While the CES 2021 expo at the start of the year was a bit muted compared to previous years, given the shift to an online event and some glaring absences – Hisense, for one, skipped out on the event entirely – we’ve still heard a lot about new TVs set to launch in the coming year.

It’s notable, though, that much of the emphasis this year seems to be on factors and features other than picture quality – the element we usually give the greatest importance when buying a new TV.
