TVs grabbed the spotlight in CES 2017 held at Las Vegas. Though sales of televisions globally have been slipping, those who do buy TVs in 2017 are expected to prefer 4K high-definition models.
LG Electronics showed off a “wallpaper” thin television as TV makers vied for the spotlight ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show officially opening in Las Vegas on Thursday.
A surprise star of the presentation was a strikingly thin LG Signature OLED flat-screen television simply branded “W”.
The super high-definition TV measured just 2.57 mm thick in a 65-inch screen model. LG boasted that a larger screen model garnered a CES Best of Innovation Award.
The screens are designed to affix to walls with magnetic brackets, protruding less than 4 mm.
The other TVs that shined are Sony A1E series Bravia OLED TV, TCLs 25 new Roku-enabled TV models, Samsung’s new 75-inch QLED TV.
