Thin is in, for TVs at CES at least
Thin is in for the newest televisions at CES 2017.
LG debut its OLED W7 TV.
The W stands for wallpaper because it's thinner than two dimes put together.
Ladies and gentlemen, that's 1/10 of an inch.
This 65 inch model clocks in at only 18 pounds making it light enough to hang with just magnets.
Kinda what I think the future of television's gonna be like.
You can imagine in five years, ten years, all these TVs are gonna be so thin that they seem like they're part of the wall.
The TV is so thin, wires and cables plug into a sound bar that provides Dolby Atmos sound.
The cinema is always gonna be the place where you can get the biggest pictures and the biggest sound.
But in the living room and on the go, there are a lot of opportunities to make it more and most.
What makes the thinnest possible is the OLED technology, Organic Light Emitting Diodes.
They really run circles around LCD in terms of giving you that superb, superb picture quality from every angle, great feedback, all of that excellent color
OLED's skinny screen allow for a first of its kind television debuted by Sony which turns the whole screen into a giant speaker.
So they have this little modules behind the TV, but it creates sound through the screen itself.
So if you have somebody on the screen, the sound actually seems to be coming out of their mouth.
TV makers are also envisioning ways to use the screens when the television is off.
Both LG and Samsung showed off frame television screens that mimic paintings.
But you may need a fat wallet to pay for these skinny screens.
Expect to pay about $10,000 when the LG Wallpaper TV goes on sale later this spring.
