Samsung Unveils The Wall

LG OLED Canyon Impresses CES Crowds

The massive TV is said to have been designed by using a modular system of smaller panels grouped together.

Chinese TV manufacturer TCL unveiled a lifestyle TV called "Frame TV" that looks absolutely identical to Samsung's "The Frame" at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.

Touted as a TV with artificial intelligence, the Samsung Q9S packs in some serious processing power to run a sophisticated AI engine that converts any format - be it 4K, FullHD, or SD - into 8K resolution through the magic of upscaling.

If we were awarding a prize for the most acronyms crammed into a product name, LG's AI ThinQ OLED TV would surely win.

The company says it uses machine learning and a database of millions of images in order to find the best way to upsample images and video. 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. With this feature, the edges of text are rendered sharp and a moonlight image is offered with the edges of the moon in the background clear, not blurred. Samsung is bringing this technology to its Smart TV lineup for this year to ensure that its new products have strengthened security against malicious attacks.

The television is expected to hit the market during the second half of 2018.

Samsung's Bixby AI assistant had a touch launch in 2017, but for 2018 it will get the chance to shine. The company plans to only have connectable devices coming off its manufacturing lines by 2020.

Although Amazon's Alexa was the star of the show previous year, she has some competition in 2018 from Google Assistant, Samsung's Bixby, Apple's Siri, and more.

LG has opted for Google Voice Assistant on its TVs to enable users to control numerous functions on the TV and search the programme guide using the remote control.

So with all this on the horizon, should you hold back on buying a 4K TV right now? The company announced three products in its initial beachhead on this evolving landscape: a Telematics control unit governing a sensor network for these vehicles; Driveline, a merging of high-performance computing and pervasive cloud presence; and most appealing, a re-imagining of the auto dashboard as an all digital cockpit, showing both sleek modern touches and retro styling that was a joy to view.

Of course, detail levels looked outstanding too, but the bright picture and vibrant colour palette were by far the standout features here, all powered by Sony's next-generation X1 Ultimate processor. "It is a wildfire", chief researcher Steve Koenig said.

A surprising amount of what the company revealed at the event was still in various stages of development. It's true that letterboxing isn't a pressing problem to solve, but if it can be solved, then why not? Huang claimed autonomous vehicles was a $10 trillion industry; "we're applying AI to one of the most hard challenges of all".

Beyond saying it would ship this year, no pricing or availability for MicroLED was announced.
