CES 2018 Highlights: Amazon, LG, Asus and Many More Announcements

CES 2018 Highlights: Amazon, LG, Asus and Many More Announcements

AI assistants have cropped up several smart TV's at CES this year, including Philips' 7703 Series 24in Android TV, which comes perched on a Bluetooth speaker and is designed for kitchen worktops. In the long term, analysts in the industry see microLEDs eventually win over OLEDs and QLEDs, but for now microLED TVs would be a costly proposition. "But the general reaction by foreign media is that Samsung and LG dominated other global companies in the TV and display sectors, which are the cores of CES".

LG Display - an affiliate of LG Electronics - unveiled a sleek prototype of its latest rolling screen technology. That is something you would only expect from a projected screen. These smaller than normal LEDs provide the background lighting separately for each pixel, unlike in traditional LED backlit LCD TVs. 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.

The TV is "a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", In-Byung Kang, the LG Display chief technical officer said in a recital.

'Game of Thrones'-inspired ice hotel opens in Finland's Lapland
But you should probably hurry, because summer is coming, and this attraction will only be open until April 8. There's also an icy Iron Throne , a dragon guardian at the ice bar , and a dragon-shaped ice slide.

"As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough".

Ever the videophile, Andru is also keeping his eye on the new TVs being announced, including a giant, 146-inch TV from Samsung called simply The Wall.

Meanwhile Korean compatriot Samsung's 2018 QLED televisions will come with the Bixby Assistant built in, and access to Samsung's SmartThings platform. A big draw is that it's modular, which means users can customize the size and shape of the screen by adding or removing sections of it. It has been available since last April and ships on all Samsung Smart TVs, further boosting security. The real stuff. We know because we touched it with our own hands and asked the tough questions that you wanted us to. At 146 inches, this thing is a true monster that outclasses even some 4K projectors in how much display space it can give you. This new TV is more of a technological showcase than a marketable commodity at least for the time being.
