The Upcoming and Hottest TVs showcased at CES 2018

The Upcoming and Hottest TVs showcased at CES 2018

There were many impressive TVs coming from every major manufacturer, these are the sets we are most excited to see in the next year. The TVs showcased are Samsung The Wall with MicroLED, LG Signature W8 with ThinQ AI, RCA Roku TV, Hisense H9E Plus, TCL 6 Series 4K Roku TVs, Panasonic 4K FZ950 and FZ800 OLED, Sony Bravia A8F OLED, LG Rollable OLED TV.

Samsung The Wall with MicroLED


Samsung’s ginormous new TV is appropriately named “The Wall,” and it’s not just big. It also boasts an entirely new alternative to LCD and OLED technologies. This innovation, called microLED, uses micron-scale light emitting diodes as individual pixels. And that’s not the only unusual thing about this home theater monster — it also has a customizable, modular design that’s unlike anything we’ve seen in consumer TVs before.

Unlike many jaw-dropping demos seen at CES, Samsung intends to bring The Wall to the mass market in the next year or so. Expect to see more news, including technical information and estimated pricing, sometime in the first half of 2018.

LG Signature W8 with ThinQ AI


We saw lots TVs this year adding voice-assistant functionality, from Google Assistant to Samsung’s Bixby, but our favorite from this new batch of smarter smart TVs has to be LG’s Signature W8 with ThinQ AI. The W8 is the updated, 2018 version of LG’s jaw-droppingly slim Wallpaper OLED from last year’s show, but with two key enhancements. First, LG has upgraded the set to its new Alpha 9 quad-core processor, which brings with it several refinements in picture and sound processing.

But the second change is the addition of LG’s ThinQ AI, which and pairs Google Assistant with LG’s already-excellent voice search and controls. This allows for advanced queries, sophisticated functions and smart home integration. In a year of TVs that listen intelligently, the LG Signature W8 with ThinQ AI stands out. LG’s ThinQ voice assistant will be rolling out in all of LG’s UHD TV sets this year, including the Wallpaper W8 OLED, with new models coming in April or May. LG has not yet announced pricing.

RCA Roku TV

RCA’s TV lineup aims to bring 4K and smart TV functionality into homes at affordable prices, and the manufacturer had two new models to show off in Las Vegas. The first is the Smart 4K UHD RCA Roku TV, which comes in 50-, 55- and 65-inch sizes. Starting at $699, the new models are the first UHD sets from RCA, and come with Roku’s well-established interface for all of your TV- needs.

Hisense H9E Plus

Hisense isn’t new to Ultra HD TVs; more than one of the company’s model found its way into our selection of the best 4K TVs under $500. But the newly announced Hisense H9E Plus still merits some attention as one of the few models that supports Dolby Vision HDR. There’s more, though: The new set features instead of Hisense’s proprietary operating system, and offers support for both Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.

TCL 6 Series 4K HDR Roku TVs

TCL is updating a fan favorite with the new 6-Series 55- and 65-inch TVs. Similar in many respects to the award-winning TCL Roku TV 55P607 — one of the best values on the market in 2017 — the new set combines 4K resolution, support for Dolby Vision and other HDR formats, and Roku’s popular smart TV platform. The new model adds full array backlighting with local dimming and a stylish brushed metal design. The TCL 6-Series 4K HDR Roku TVs are expected to start selling this spring.

Panasonic FZ950 and FZ800 OLED


While the Panasonic name hasn’t been prominent in the TV market for the last year or so, the company just announced two new OLED models that could change that perception in 2018. The new Panasonic FZ950 and FZ800 feature the same color accurate OLED displays that Panasonic has been selling to Hollywood studios over the last few years. That Hollywood cred includes HDR support: specifically for the HDR10+ format, jointly developed by Panasonic and Samsung. Panasonic plans to sell these TVs in the spring of 2018, but has not yet announced pricing details.

Sony Bravia A8F OLED


Sony’s CES announcements didn’t stray far from the OLED and LCD models we saw last year, but Sony knows not to mess with a good thing. Case in point: The new Sony Bravia A8F follows in the footsteps of last year’s Bravia A1E, arguably one of the best televisions on the market. The new model features the same premium OLED display, as well as its innovative acoustic surface technology, which uses the screen’s glass panel as an source. In terms of new features, the A8F has adopted a more conventional stand design. The Bravia A8F OLED will be available in 55- and 65-inch sizes, although Sony hasn’t announced pricing or availability for either model yet.

LG Rollable OLED TV


Without a doubt, the most impressive TV on display at the show was LG’s rollable OLED set. Its 65-inch screen initially looks like any other (admittedly premium) slim OLED from the company, but when you turn off your program, the TV does what no other set can do. The screen slides down into a storage compartment that’s not much bigger than a soundbar. By combining a flexible glass OLED panel and a segmented back that houses the necessary components, LG has managed to fit a big screen display into -small storage, and does so without sacrificing the vibrant colors and perfect blacks that characterize OLED models. While LG has not announced any plans to make this a retail product, you can expect the company to apply some of the lessons learned here to its upcoming sets.
