In the promo images, LG shows the top section of the OLED remaining visible to display helpful information like the weather and news. So for those of you who think that your new 4K TV is obsolete, the answer is NO. 8K OLEDs will take some time to become market-ready.
Yes, it's another technical term to add to a growing pile of others from the various TV brands out there, but Dolby Vision actually does sound brilliant. Whether those strides are big enough to see it enter mass production and move to store shelves anytime soon is now a mystery.
LG says it is making its OLED TV even better for 2018, with the alpha 9 processor for 50 percent more powerful image processing than last year's lineup.
With AI functionality embedded in 2018 LG TVs, LG's customers can speak directly into the remote control to use all the features of today's advanced voice-assistant technology.
Lastly, while many of us got excited about the HDMI 2.1 spec that was solidified near the end of last year, LG representatives told us that it came out a bit too late to be included on any of this year's models.
LG has been leading the way in large-sized and mid-sized OLED displays for TV, auto-components and lighting.
LG's David VanderWaal said: "2018 will be the tipping point for the smart home". You can keep it anywhere in your room and can make use of it just by opening it. The display measures 65 inches in size. The SUPER UHD TVs with FALD allow denser backlighting zones throughout the display, unlike edge lighting, in which backlights are positioned on the edges of the TV panel. If LG's display standard catches on, TVs could be easily carried around in light, tube-shaped cases.
The price, at least at first, will likely be MASSIVE, however, especially for larger 65in OLED panels of the type used in LG's HDTVs.
We have been expecting the same Flexible displays and panels by different giants during this year's Consumer Electronics Show and LG has blessed us with this new Rollable OLED display already. The new version is still created to cling to your wall and stuffs most of its hardware into the soundbar below.
