New Sony AF8 4K OLED TVs Announced At CES

REUTERS  Rick WilkingLG's new line of smart TVs will have Google Assistant and Alexa integration for the first time

Samsung is expected to showcase their quantum-dot light-emitting diodes televisions with a larger than 100-inch panel, much bigger than the now largest 88-inch QLED TVs, according to insiders.

David Vanderwaal, vice president of marketing at LG, described 2018 as "the tipping point for the smart home".

If you're seeing the TV when it's deployed, you might not realize exactly what you're looking at.

For now, details about the new TV are still la bit sketchy and we understand so far that this particular model won't actually be released for the consumer market quite yet. One thing is sure, they won't be cheap devices to buy. It shouldn't come as a surprise if Samsung decides to price the product exorbitantly.

The TV is just a concept, but it sure is wild. The answer lies in upscaling. But who has the best in this 4K measuring contest? Needless to say, this makes it one of the most portable screens we've ever seen. As much as their content libraries grow, they won't be upgrading to 8K for many, many years, so don't stress, 4K is here to stay for a long time. You might soon need sunglasses indoors if Samsung keeps upping the brightness at this rate.

LG's AI platform, ThinQ, was the centre of attention during the company's press conference this year, though; meaning it was bound to make its way to its TV lineup. 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 low-priced. There will be some impressive new computer monitors and Art Glass displays for TVs too showcased at CES 2018. It's as crisp and vibrant and lovely as the rest of the company's OLED portfolio, only it's that extra bit thinner, allowing it to be rolled down (kinda like a projector screen flipped on its head).

"The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", said In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display. These backlit sets have moved to full-array backlighting, which means individual parts of the screen can be dimmed to allow for greater contrast.

This new rollable OLED will be flexible enough to be rolled up and stored when not in use, ideal for bedroom use or discrete home cinema installations.

Beyond the new additions of the processor and Google Assistant, the W8 comes equipped with a 4.2 Dolby Atmos soundbar attached via a flat cable that runs into the TV itself - the latter of which still measures in at an unbelievably thin 2.57mm from front to back. It connects with Google services to display photos, other files and media saved in Google Drive. The tablet can be used to control other smart appliances.
