A cord-cutter’s dream: to have a smart TV connected to a laptop or tablet via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
But many consumers are also choosing to stream content to smartphones or tablets from afar, using a more convenient wireless option.
Now, a pair of wireless TVs from Samsung and LG are set to be released to consumers later this year, giving the smart TV a wireless advantage that makes it the perfect companion to a tablet.
The LG Smart TV 5 Plus is a $130 Wi-fi-enabled TV, which is built around Samsung’s MediaTek MT6582 processor, 3GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 1080p display.
It also has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and supports the Samsung KDL2 protocol.
The Samsung TV 5 has an 8-inch display, but it’s more like a 1080i TV, with a 6:3 aspect ratio.
The Samsung TV 4S is a cheaper, 5-inch Wi-FI-enabled model that costs $100.
It has Bluetooth 3.0, but its display is smaller and its Wi-amp port is lower than the Samsung TV5.
The Galaxy TV 2 is a 5- and 6-inch version of the Samsung Smart TV.
It’s also Bluetooth 3:4 and supports Samsung KDD2 protocol, which means it can be used with both smartphones and tablets.
The Korean company has also released a Samsung TV 3 for the Samsung Galaxy S6, which costs $120 and supports KDD1 protocol.
Samsung also offers an LG TV 4 with a 1080-by-1080 resolution.
The LG TV 5 is also a 5.1-inch wireless TV, but the display is a bit smaller and the price is a little higher.
Like Samsung, LG also sells a Smart TV 6 for $100, which also supports KDS protocol.
It costs $110 and supports Bluetooth 4, but that display is also slightly smaller.
