    Samsung isn't the only one showing off plus-sized TVs at CES this year. New Atlas reports that LG showed off an 88-inch 8K OLED with tech to project 3.2.2 Dolby Atmos sound from the panel itself, though I'm not sure such a system would compare favorably to real surround-sound setups. They also showed off a 65", 4K "Crystal Motion OLED" that they claim has the word's fastest Motion Picture Response time at 3.5ms. Unlike last year, they're apparently bringing AI-enhanced 8K OLEDs to market.

    Check out the 8k TVs in the live stream here.


    Visitors to CES 2019 will also be treated to an arty OLED flower made up of four 65 inch UHD OLED displays that have had their edges curled inward, as a demonstration of the flexibility of OLED displays and the kind of thing LG Display can achieve without compromising picture quality. Other developments on show include an 86 inch electronic whiteboard with embedded touch technology for "greater touch precision, clearer picture quality and a slimmer design." A show window comprising four 55 inch transparent OLED panels is being used to showcase OLED's commercial potential, with its 40 percent transparency making it a good fit for retail store window displays.

    I don't think tv companies are going to be happy until tv's take up a full house storey. :eek:

    Cause the majority is in awe with the size of TVs. Just look at SD they go nuts over garbage ass 65"+ $300. Size and price is the primary factor for the majority of people out there.

    I watched in horror in the amount of information they wish to gather from the state of my house. Only thing BIG I saw in that presentation as the size of the Brother.

    Grandpa throw that garbage out onto the lawn like the tube tvs!

    seriously though cant buy a tv without it being outdated by the time it ships. I am okay with it evolving though.

    My thoughts exactly. I couldn't get up to the bending part because I reached "we have expanded our partnership with google" first.

    Fucking hate the whole "smart" bullshit. I want a big as dumb monitor with a remote, not a TV. I know there's a market for such a thing but it's rather small

    Exactly this. I'll plug the computer in, just give me the display.

    Fully agreed. Also I hate the bootup lag smart tvs have. Would rather have an apple tv or roku etc to add functionality to a tv but would rather it just simply be a display.
