Samsung 105-inch bendable SUHD TV

Combining a triple-digit screen size and the ability to go from curved to flat at the touch of a button, this monster is among the craziest TVs at the show.

Samsung's SUHD JS9500

The curved JS9500 series is Samsung's best nonbendable 2015 TV introduction. The "S" in SUHD doesn't stand for anything, they say.

Samsung 85S9W ultra-widescreen curved TV

Samsung 110-inch glasses-free 3D 8K TV

This concept demo of glasses-free 3D is a classic "only at CES" booth draw. Shown here, Vanessa Orellana shoots the video for CNET Espanol.

Sony XBR-75X940C

The 75-inch X940C has a full-array local dimming backlight, just like on the XBR-X950B from 2014. Yes, this will be one expensive TV.

Sony XBR-75X940C speaker detail

The X940C's speakers are huge and should sound great, if the 2014 X900B is any indication. This is billed as the world's first TV to play back high-res audio.

Sony 8K x 2K short-throw video wall

Combining a pair of 4K ultra-short-throw projectors to create a single massive image, this is one of the coolest projection displays around.

Sharp Beyond 4K Ultra HD TV

Sharp's best shipping TV for 2015 splits the red, green, blue and yellow subpixels on the fly in order to generate up to 66 million onscreen pixels. The claim is an even sharper (ahem) picture than regular old 4K TVs.

Sharp 85-inch 8K TV

8K TVs were part of all the big TV makers' booths, and Sharp is no exception. 8K TV broadcasts are expected to start in Japan in 2016.

This technology demo shows how LCD can be bent to relatively extreme curvatures, for example around a column in a building.

Sharp Super Slim LCD

Hauntingly similar to Sony's X900C, Sharp's Super Slim design will be featured in a new line of TVs due in Q3 2015. It uses a glass light guide to achieve a thickness of about half an inch, or similar to that of a cellphone.

Panasonic CX850 series

Boasting improved color, brightness and support for HDR content, Panasonic's flagship 2015 TV promises to compete against the best of the year.

Panasonic 4K OLED prototype

No word on when or if Panasonic will actually start selling this TV. It first appeared in prototype form, albeit smaller, way back at CES 2013.

LG OLED with Swarovski crystal base

LG, on the other hand, is busy selling OLED TVs right now. These concept pieces shatter the record for TV-stand opulence.

LG 65-inch 65EC9600 OLED TV

This $10,0000 TV was supposed to go on sale in late 2014 but it's just now hitting the market. Its successor was announced at the show.

LG 65EF9800 OLED side view

That bar can be detached so the ultraslim TV hangs on the wall unfettered.

LG EF9500 series

The company's other flat OLEDs include 55-inch and 65-inch (shown here) sizes, but no 77-incher yet.

LG 65UF9400

Not to be outdone by Samsung in the Quantum Dot TV race, LG will introduce its own so-equipped LCDs this year.

LG 105UC9 105-inch curved 4K LCD

First shown at CES last year, this $100,000, 105-inch 21:9 aspect ratio curved TV is still a showstopper.

LG Display HDR OLED concept

LG Display is the division of LG that actually manufactures OLED, and we got a chance to see the next generation of our favorite TV technology in action. The HDR concept TV offers 60 percent higher brightness in highlights, for even punchier images. No word on when it goes on sale though.

LG Display 98-inch 8K LCD

Another 8K concept TV, this one is bigger than most.

Using a new structure known as M+ that incorporates a white subpixel, LG says it also improves brightness on this HDR LCD.

LG Display 105-inch Intelligent White Board

This one's for the kids. The sign of a truly well-funded school district, it supports 10-finger touch and behaves just like a massive digital chalkboard, with video.
