Curved screens, 4k resolution, integration with Internet and applications, screen mirroring and support of 3D content are some of the latest television technological advancements, as of 2015. Some of the latest-generation, more expensive models can support a resolution up to 8k.
Curved televisions provide more immersion to the viewer, since they appear to fill more of the viewer's field of view than flat screen TVs. They also provide more sharpness at the edges of the image, and the viewer feels like the picture of a curved screen has more depth, as if the image were 3D. Curved televisions also provide higher contrast performance. Nevertheless, they exaggerate reflections, they need to be big to make a difference, and they are more expensive.
Televisions that can connect to the Internet and support applications such as YouTube and Netflix are called smart TVs. They are a competitor of media streamers, as they attempt to integrate online streaming services in the television.
Screen mirroring is a function that allows the user to beam photos, videos, presentations and video games to the big screen of a television. The user can use mobile devices such as a smartphone or a tablet and mirror the screen to the TV screen.
