At CES, Samsung, LG vie for top spot in premium TVs

"LG Display is all about innovative products that provide new value to customers", Sang-Beom Han, Vice-Chairman and CEO of LG Display, said in a statement. Clever AI technology inside the TV upgrades whatever is being displayed to close-to-8K quality.

LAS VEGAS-If LG Display has its way, future TVs won't just turn off. In addition to the rollable technology, LG will also be sharing more information about its OLED technologies with a 55-inch transparent display and a 77-inch wallpaper concept TV. The 65-inch UHD rollable LG OLED display the company made a decision to amaze us with will be showcased at CES 2018 this week. Right now LG doesn't have a launch time frame set it looks like, and there's still no word on what these TVs will cost, but they probably won't be cheap. Now the company has increased the size of that prototype and announced a 65-inch rollable OLED display prototype.

LG just took the wraps of its new 65in OLED TV, and while it is still just a concept, it gives us a very real glimpse of what's just around the corner with respect to product design and display technology.

Needless to say, LG hasn't revealed the pricing or release dates of any of its 2018 TVs.

Last year, we had problems with the TV's exclusive use of the soundbar as its primary source to route cables in and out of the TV.

After a fair amount of teasing, LG is ready to take the wraps off of its 2018 4K TV lineup - and in many ways, it's an evolution of what you saw previous year.

LG has also manufactured TVs that will be at the forefront ofCES this year. The 2018 sets feature an expanded color-lookup table, which produces more-natural color by increasing the reference-color coordinates by more than seven times compared with the 2017 processor. This has, in the past years, been the most accessible OLED model offered by LG, but this year there's a hardware difference too: it's powered by the α7 processor rather than the new α9, so it might not quite have the picture power that the W, E and C offer.

Back in December 2017, a South Korean government panel approved LG Display's KRW 5 trillion (approximately United States dollars 4.4 billion) project to build its first large organic light-emitting diode plant in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou. It's like having a Google Home built into your TV - and could be an especially useful feature for those of us with burgeoning smart homes. Also, it is incredibly easy to store.
