Samsung Elec, LG Display Get Spotlight at CES

Samsung Elec, LG Display Get Spotlight at CES

According to Samsung: "Users can add or remove modules to make their TV bigger or smaller, in any configuration, removing previous limitations on screen size, with zero impact on the performance of the display".

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

The author travelled to CES in Las Vegas as a guest of LG.

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. Although still a prototype, it could become a retail model within the next two years, seriously shaking up the TV market - although it won't come cheap!

However this isn't the real point of Samsung's enormous 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. They feature LG's Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations. In other words, the MicroLEDs within The Wall are tiny LEDs equipped with their own RGB sub-pixels. That means that the TV is made of a bunch of smaller squares that are put together.

Even better, the 8K QLED TV Samsung were using for the demo is actually expected to launch this year, though it's currently only confirmed for the U.S. and Korea for now.

It's not known when the TV will appear in shops or interior design shows, however, as LG Electronics Australia marketing manager Angus Jones said the Display arm of LG operated separately from TV sales.

Blackberry is going to wait for Mobile World Congress to launch their new Android powered smartphones but they did unveil a new color for their existing model. Screen brightness can reach up to 10,000 cd/sq m, the highest for the HDR format. Samsung says it will be commercially available this year.
