Best of #CES2018: LG 2018 C-Series OLED

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

Korean, Japanese and Chinese TV makers usually use CES as a launch pad for the coming year and 2018 seems to be no different.

"At Samsung, we are dedicated to providing consumers with a wide range of cutting-edge screen experiences", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

It's that time of the year: This week is the Consumer Electronics Show, the biggest tech expo in the U.S. nearly two hundred thousand people have descended on a surprisingly rainy Las Vegas for the show, among them Geared Up co-host Andru Edwards. They're popping up in cars, in refrigerators, even in the bathroom mirror. This display is based on the same technology as the company's current UHD (4K) OLED panel, but can completely roll up and disappear into a box that lives below it. The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with flawless infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology. In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the ideal new TV as we've seen so far from any brand. Fortunately, that isn't the case thanks to Samsung's special MicroLED tech doing the heavy lifting.

MicroLED is a self-emitting technology.

"On a wall screen, you can watch TV, designating any section or portion of the display to act like a TV", he said.

Pricing for the TV has not yet been announced.

And then there's a new 85-inch 8K QLED TV. All three lines support deep learning and Google Assistant control to allow for natural language voice control over everything from the TV itself to smart home devices. They're mostly proof-of-concept TVs, and few if any retail models have left China. In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the flawless new TV as we've seen so far from any brand. For example, you can ask Alexa to search for movies or play Amazon content on a Fire TV.

But a 65-inch foldable TV isn't the only thing that will be showcased at the event as LG is also set to show off its new 88-inch 8K OLED display.
