LG at CES 2020

So yes, when 8K content becomes more accessible to gaming, prepare to melt your eyes. It is expected to be out later this year, with reports putting its price at a insane US$60,000.

Regardless, CES is about indulging in the very best consumer tech has to offer.

Any smart TV offers plenty to get excited about, but the Philips OLED 804 offers an appealing blend of premium display quality and rich smart home integration. In fact, the bezel measures just 2mm, making it nearly invisible when viewed from just a few feet away. LG also showed off NanoCell LCD TVs in 4K and 8K models.

You can see a complete list of those attending on the CES 2020 website. Rotating to portrait means TikTok and Instagram Stories fans can view their content properly - make no mistake, this is very much a TV aimed at Generation Z above everyone else.

The 48 inch size is new. Gimmick or genius? We'll let you decide.

The TV boasts virtual 5.1 sound, although you're likely to team it with a sound system if you're lucky enough to be able to afford a TV of this class.

The GX Gallery TV looks like a painting on the wall. It can also upscale video to 8K without a smudge of pixelation.

The entrance to Sony's CES stand was dominated by an enormous 98-inch, 8K television.

The company highlights its 8K TVs via the exhibition of its OLED ZX-series OLED TVs and three series of NanoCell TVs - Nano 99, 97 and 95.

The Philips OLED 804 will be available in the US market sometime this year, and will be come in 55- and 65-inch models. "However, their existing 85" XBR Z9G Master Series 8k TV sells for $13k, so we would expect the Z8H series to be more affordable. The LG TVs are equipped with Dolby Vision HDR imaging, Dolby Atmos audio, and Dolby Vision IQ.

The addition of the Google Assistant firmly positions the Z8H in the centre of your connected home, making it more than just a source of entertainment. While the company was meek with details on how its panel technology has improved, this year's crop of TVs come with new features and in a few new form factors and display resolutions if you've got the budget for it.

Among the more notable TVs we'll see from any brand this year are LG's 2020 8K sets. If you want to start the week with some exciting new technology announcements, make sure you tune into the live stream at the top of this page, which starts at 8:00 p.m. PT / 11:00 p.m. and lasts about an hour.
