Despite being compatible with two of the most popular AI helpers in the United States, the 2018 smart TVs from LG also take advantage of the company’s own service, so basic voice commands such as content searches and playback orders are processed by the ThinQ platform.
Rollable OLED Display Is Back and It’s Bigger Than EverAlthough LG did not address it during it’s CES press conference on Monday, the company is demoing a new rollable 65-incj OLED display prototype that builds on the 18-inch OLED display previously at CES. Maybe even quite revolutionary to a certain type of AV fan.
The headline feature on LG’s 2018 TV lineup however is Artificial Intelligence (AI).
First, let’s quickly cover what’s stayed the same. Beside the typical, full 65-inch screen, it’s got a more cinematic 21:9 ratio option and a slender notification panel that can house weather info and act as a music player when you don’t need the screen up front and center. It’s slim, fits seamlessly onto the wall and it comes with a Dolby Atmos soundbar.
Below the W8 will sit the G8. It is a huge upgrade over the current largest 77-inch OLED panel with the 4K resolution which is priced around $20,000 around.
“The world has become just too complex for just any single company to insist on a proprietary, closed solution”, Park said.
In the first real look we’ve had at the hazy future of transportation, Toyota announced an ambitious “box on wheels” concept vehicle called an e-Palette, described as “fully-automated, next generation battery electric vehicles created to be scalable and customisable for a range of Mobility as a Service businesses”.
The new E8 continues the “pixels on glass” design used by the E7s, though there are a couple of marked differences. It doesn’t get much thinner than this.
But the company hasn’t offered the screen up for general retail sale just yet.
The Super UHD LCD lineup will be upgraded as well, with the Nano Cell Display seen past year and an array of local dumming backlighting to improve lighting control, black levels, and contrast.
Has OLED reached its limit?
To LG’s credit, they seem to have maximized the potential of the OLED technology with the upcoming monitor. The monitor will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
You might be wondering what that white box on the bottom is.
LG has turned its attention to the processing that drives that hardware. It has low power requirements as compared to backlit LCD panels. The TVs also support 120FPS high frame rate video.
