Best New TVs From CES 2019

Conor Cawley


LG Z9 8K OLEDCES 2019 is the year of 8K, and LG jumped on the bandwagon at their press conference immediately. They announced two 8K TVs, which translates to a 4x improvement in image resolution, and means they're going to have to have some serious software to manage it.

Luckily, they do, thanks to the a9 Gen 2 processor. The LG 8K OLED Z9 in particular will need this added processing power, with its 88-inch screen size.

The LG 8K OLED Z9 also supports Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can add this high-tech TV to your smart home lineup, and it's also compatible with the latest HDMI standard.

As for price and availability, LG hasn't announced exactly when this beautiful TV will be out for purchase or how much it will cost. However, you can bet the answer to those questions will be “soon” and “expensive.”

LG Signature OLED TV R

The South Korean company announced the Signature OLED TV R, in which R naturally stands for rollable. The innovative TV is housed in a stand that is noticeably smaller than the screen that comes out of it.

The TV R even comes with a standby mode, in which the TV will come halfway out of the stand and display weather, photos, and the time.

Like most TVs at CES 2019 so far, no price or availability has been announced, but you aren't going to be pinching pennies if you're interested in this model.

Sony Master A9G OLED TV

Sony OLED TVBecause the technology is still burgeoning – 8K is far from the standard – all the leading companies still have 4K models on the market. The Sony Master A9G OLED TV boasts this still-impressive resolution in 77-inch, 65-inch, and 55-inch models.

The TV itself is nothing to write home about as far as specs and concerned, particularly considering the competition throughout the rest of this list.

However, what is unique for this product is the stand that comes with it, allowing users to push the A9G very close up to the wall. It might not be 8K, but that's certainly an improvement on some of the models above.

Again, we've no information about price or availability, but trust us, these companies will itching to get that information out as soon as possible.

Panasonic GZ2000 4K OLED TV

Panasonic GZ2000 TVWhile most TVs on this list focus on the importance of crystal clear resolution and gigantic screens, Panasonic decided to go another route with their big ticket product at CES 2019: sound. The Panasonic GZ2000 4K OLED TV still comes with all the stunning picture of a 4K OLED TV, but it is now combined with built-in Dolby Atmos speakers.

Sound bars have become a necessary purchase due to the poor sound quality of increasingly thin televisions, so Panasonic is trying to right the ship with a TV that looks and sounds good too. Plus, with Alexa and Google Assistant support, you'll be able to improve your smart home setup some more.

It's still anyone's guess at how expensive this audio-focused TV might cost, but for a TV that doesn't need a sound bar, you can be sure it's going to hit your wallet where it hurts.
