A Closer Look At LG's ThinQ AI-Powered Products - CES 2018

A Closer Look At LG's ThinQ AI-Powered Products - CES 2018

There's a new Signature Wallpaper model, the W8 leading the charge, in 77 and 65-inch sizes. The SUPER UHD TVs with FALD allow denser backlighting zones throughout the display, unlike edge lighting, in which backlights are positioned on the edges of the TV panel.

The LG V30 has been out for a while now but LG is still doing the rounds with it at CES.

Despite being compatible with two of the most popular AI helpers in the United States, the 2018 smart TVs from LG also take advantage of the company's own service, so basic voice commands such as content searches and playback orders are processed by the ThinQ platform. The big difference is form, with the E8 offering an evolution of LG's picture-on-glass design.

In the first real look we've had at the hazy future of transportation, Toyota announced an ambitious "box on wheels" concept vehicle called an e-Palette, described as "fully-automated, next generation battery electric vehicles created to be scalable and customisable for a range of Mobility as a Service businesses".

It was a brilliant use of the Crystal Sound OLED technology, as laptop speakers often leave something to be desired in terms of sound quality. The E8 is available in 65 and 66-inch sizes. LG Display wasn't exactly keen on people pawing at its screen, but it genuinely felt like I could reach out and touch the images being flashed in front of my eyes.

As per the W8, the C8 and E8 are powered with a new α9 processor that enables all those smart functions.

There's also a new AI OLED B8 (55 and 65-inch). All the TVs boast improved support for HDR formats like Dolby Vision, HDR10, Advanced HDR, Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), and the company's proprietary HLG Pro and HDR10 Pro. The roll-up screen makes the TV particularly discreet - hidden away among the furniture when not in use, or only rolled out onto a wall when switched on. There will also be support for HFR too. The vast majority of the company's new devices will start retailing in the United States and other Western markets in the coming months.
