Now that CES 2018 is winding down, we wanted to take a look at a few products in particular. That would be a lot easier to do if LG hadn’t introduced a TON of new products, a lot of which are designed to make your home smarter or act smarter. This years theme was mostly about digital assistance in our next generation products, and LG was no exception. After the jump you’ll see just a few of the things LG has planned for consumers in 2018.
LG is bringing the heat with not 1, not 2, not 3…but 9 new 4k OLED TVs, ranging in size from 55″ to 77″ – some configureations will include the new “ThinQ” AI platform. Smart TVs have never been so smart, as the new ThinQ enabled TVs will be able to respond to hundreds of different kinds of voice requests. Powered by webOS, the LG smart TVs will also feature Google Assistant integration, making them an excellent choice for those already invested in the Google ecosystem. And even if you are not, if you are buying a new TV anyway, this is a neat way to get that Assistant functionality built right in.
LG makes some of the best PC monitors in the game. Even Apple has got some of LG’s stuff in their stores, which let’s you know how serious they are. LG took the wraps off of a few new displays that boast impressive features, including support for HDR 600 and Thunderbolt 3 connections.
I don’t know much, but I know I need one of these 5K displays in my life. It’s going to be a little while before our revenue streams can pony up for one of these bad boys. And the good news is that you can actually daisy chain these monitors, so you could have two of these gorgeous things gracing your workspace at the same time. Like the song says, “D-O-G – hoo-wee!” Video editors, pro photographers, and even gamers will dig these new offerings from LG in 2018.
If you want to have an audio experience that matches the display experience shown above, then you might want to look into one of the speaker options LG will have in 2018. In addition to some improved sound bar options, LG is going to have a range of bluetooth connected speakers, including their first smart speaker, the LG ThinQ Speaker, which will feature Google Assistant capability but also serve as a touch point for any of your other LG smart appliances or devices. Meridian Audio is tuning the standard speakers for LG, and that partership should produce some quality sound from any of the portable or standard devices.
LG has a ton more stuff planned for 2018. While we don’t usually cover connected home appliance products, we hope to be able to work with LG in the future to bring you even more information on their other connected or smart home products. But if you have any questions about any of these items, be sure to send them our way! Cheers…
