LG's rollable TV is the pick of the futuristic displays at CES

LG's rollable TV is the pick of the futuristic displays at CES

The QLED TV will feature twice the resolution of current top model televisions, and Samsung Australia television product manager Hass Mahdi said the screen would use artificial intelligence to automatically upscale shows to appear in crisp 8K resolution.

However this isn't the real point of Samsung's very big new HDR 4K TV and its 146 inch screen, No, what Samsung really wants from such a massive piece of home entertainment technology lots of attention to its size during a major consumer electronics event (VES 2018), so that the company can then showcase all the cool new display technologies that "The Wall" comes with and let buyers judge for themselves if they'd be willing to pay premium prices for the same things in the more ordinary-sized 4K HDR TVs that emerge in 2018 and maybe 2019. LG's AI OLED TVs will also have Google Assistant so users can control them with voice commands.

This allows MicroLED screens to be brighter than OLED, while also having a longer lifespan, without the worry of "burn in" (where the outline of a static image can remain on the screen when the image moves on).

The 65-inch rollable UHD OLED display is built in a way that it can be rolled up and hidden when not in use.

The firm's new MicroLED TV is massive, but what's really cool is that it's actually modular.

The very big displays from LG and Samsung seem like aspirational headline grabbers more than actual shipping products, but both were incredible to see in person.

If you have bought yourself a brand new 4K TV you might regret that by now and we will highly recommend you to stop reading this article forthwith.

If you've recently purchased a 4K TV, you shouldn't feel too envious.

Yes, 8K was on display at CES. More importantly, there's no consumer content available in 8K yet, and major studios and publishers are still trying to get 4K into peoples' hands. The new chip provides seven times the colour reproduction over the 2017 model, and can now handle up to 120 frames per second, a significant improvement for gaming and sports viewing.

This year, LG put all three qualities in one television.

Here's a look at some of the flashiest TVs at CES this year.
