CES 2018: LG TVs Get Smarter With AI

At CES, Samsung, LG vie for top spot in premium TVs

LG Display showcased its technological prowess at a convention center in Las Vegas on Monday, a day ahead of the opening of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Further, There is the company's proprietary Triluminos display technology for an enhanced colour accuracy. One can ask Google Assistant to play TV shows, movies, and more.

CES is the first platform of choice for companies around the globe to showcase their upcoming products and future technologies. As such, the 65-inch OLED panel renders life-like images that is as captivating as the TV as a whole is.

The unveiling of the 65-in rollable television comes after LG revealed its very big new display, an 88-inch 8K television. This startlingly slim TV drops all the normal gubbins you expect from a TV, leaving you with the OLED panel that you affix to the wall, with an accompanying Dolby Atmos soundbar that also contains all the connections and brains to drive the TV.

The headline feature on LG's 2018 TV lineup however is Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The rollable display is certainly an improvement over an earlier prototype LG showed two years ago that was only 18 inches in size and had a 1,200-by-810 resolution.

The new Rollable OLED display from LG can be rolled on just like a newspaper.

LG's latest TV display boasts 7,680 x 4,320 pixel resolution (33 million pixels), but that's all of the details LG has shared in terms of specs.

All 2018 4K UHD TVs will feature the company's new ThinQ AI technology, enabling implementation of hundreds of voice requests, via LG's webOS, as well as third-party AI services, such as Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa.

"LG Display is all about innovative products that provide new value to customers", said Dr. Sang-Beom Han, Vice Chairman and CEO of LG Display. Consumers will also be excited when LG confirms its availability. This also happens to be a world's first as well, one that seems better tuned for a market launch anytime soon than the plethora of such foldable displays we have seen in tech events over the years.

The company's plans for the "smart connected lifestyle" revolve around appliances and devices controlled by Amazon and Google's Alexa and Assistant digital helpers, and a series of futuristic concept robots created to lighten the load in airports and hotels. Whether those strides are big enough to see it enter mass production and move to store shelves anytime soon is now a mystery.
