Smart TVs have been evolving slowly under the shadow of the buzzing, ever-growing smartphone world. With the TVs picking up more and more ideas from the flexibility and versatility of smartphones, it was only a matter of time before we witnessed this—A Smart TV that has its own operating system, an octa-core processor, a pop-up camera, and even facial recognition.
