HDTV 4K & 8K TV

2023 Vizio TVs Opt for 1080p and 4K Instead of 8K

Like car models, 2023 Vizio TVs roll-out in mid-2022. There are 19 new 4K and HDTVs in total sized up to 75-inches.

One of the most popular TV brands in North America is Vizio. With aggressive pricing, a long list of features and sales distribution with both Costco and Amazon, their TVs are readily available for any consumer that want to buy one. 

Although it is only mid-way through 2022, Vizio has revealed its 2023 TV product line and it is quite extensive. 4K UHD resolution, Quantum Dots, and SmartCast are features that aid in the TV viewing experience. However, there are two additional things to consider this year, extensive gaming support and a full line of 1080p TVs. Vizio understands that not everyone wants or needs a 4K UHD TV, so why not offer consumers a choice? You won’t find too many 1080p TV choices from other manufacturers.

On the other hand, missing from this Vizio TV product reveal are more OLED TVs in addition to its current 55-inch and 65-inch models from 2020-2021. Also, Vizio has no plans yet to add 8K TVs to its line-up, playing that step cautiously given current market trends

I had the opportunity to get check out a small sampling of Vizio TV and soundbar products on display in the Official Vizio Tour Bus.
