LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

The TV-making industry is just as aggressive as smartphones these days. Especially after a long lull where there was barely any major innovation, trend, or hype pushing the market forward. Now we have curved screens, 4K resolutions, multiple HDR standards, and quantum or nano particles. If LG is to be asked, however, there is one more new territory to conquer: 8K. The Korean consumer electronics giant has just unveiled its newest and biggest TV yet, with an 88-inch panel sporting the world's largest TV resolution.

LG ThinQ smart speaker leads 2018 audio lineup

LG ThinQ smart speaker leads 2018 audio lineup

Smart speakers are in, if Amazon's sales numbers for the Echo, especially the Echo Dot, are any indication. OEMs are already jumping on board, including Apple, though not until early 2018. That gives them enough time to test the waters first at CES next month. That's exactly what LG is doing with its first ever smart speaker, powered by Google Assistant and one of the first new products under the ThinQ brand. But if you're not into always listening equipment, worry not. LG has a lot more in store.

New LG monitors flaunt Nano IPS tech, Thunderbolt 3 connection

It’s definitely going to be late for the holidays, but this announcement at least gives you time to prepare for the costs ahead. LG is prepping CES 2018 attendees with what to expect at its Las Vegas booth, including two rather massive new monitors. The 32UK950 and the ultra wide 34WK95U both boast of the latest in color gamut and HDR support, their main selling point, at least as far as LG is concerned, is the company’s new Nano IPS technology, designed for even more accurate color reproduction.

There’s bad Galaxy S9 news for CES 2018

If you were hoping to get a look at Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy phone during CES 2018 next month, we have some bad news. Sources claim Samsung will be showing off some of its phones at the event in January, as well as LG, but the showcase will involve "low-end" handsets.

Samsung Galaxy A8, LG K10 mid-range phones expected at CES 2018

Although Samsung has more or less confirmed that the Galaxy S9 wouldn’t be making an appearance as early as CES 2018, that doesn’t mean it won’t have any phone to show next month. It might, instead, simply show off a new phone for that who want the same look but for less. Less hardware, that is. In a similar fashion, LG might be doing something similar, debuting a new LG K phone vis-a-vis Samsung’s new Galaxy A model.
