The best TVs of CES 2018: LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony

-Panasonic/AFP Relaxnews picLAS VEGAS, Jan 13 - With spectacular designs, bigger screens, richer colours and sharper image quality, TVs once again took centre stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, notably driven by innovation from LG and Samsung.

Welcome to the best of CES 2018.

The Chinese vendor displayed a series of 4K premium TVs during the trade show, but what notable was its prototype product showcased under the name "Frame TV". The first incredible model has a screen that literally rolls up into the TV's base when switched off.

LG was the first to unveil its efforts, with a huge 88-inch 8K OLED display announced before the show even started.

The Bundesliga resumed Friday after the winter break with Bayern Munich going 14 points clear after a 3-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen .

So there you have it, next-generation electro-QLED technology has finally arrived and so far its specs indicate something that could blow both current LCD TVs and the best that OLED offers out of the water, if only we can soon start seeing more normal-sized versions of this monster TV on the market.

Few of the new TVs will cost as much as Samsung's 146-inch, modular, Micro LED television, dubbed The Wall, however, but the company also revealed it would also launch an 85-inch 8K television in Australia later this year.

The other really unusual technology was Samsung's MicroLED technology. In other words, the MicroLEDs within The Wall are tiny LEDs equipped with their own RGB sub-pixels. They also promise improved power efficiency and an increased lifespan. That means that the TV is made of a bunch of smaller squares that are put together.

The television is expected to hit the market during the second half of 2018. 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". The manufacturer usually comes out all guns blazing, unveiling an entire new range of TVs for the year ahead. The Wall can achieve a searing 2,000-nit brightness, higher than any LED LCD we've tested, and the combination should produce breathtaking pop, especially for HDR sources. Sony has not yet said when this kind of model could be available to buy.
