The new TV is called the Signature OLED TV R - model 65R9 - and features a 4K (3,840 x 2,60) display that rolls up into a stylish base. TCL prides itself on being one of the biggest sellers of affordable TVs with exceptional picture quality.

LG has focused on OLED technology, while Samsung has promoted LCD TVs enhanced with quantum dot LCD panels, a short-term strategy before moving to self-emitting QLED displays which will replace the passive color filters in front of liquid crystal pixels with a quantum dot color filter.

This year, companies including LG, Samsung, and Sony showed-off their latest prototypes at the annual consumer electronics show.

In terms of sound quality, LG has implemented a new AI Sound mode that really upgrades the forward-firing speaker's audio performance by virtualizing it for a larger space. But that display was 13-inches, had major limitations, and did not yet look like a consumer product.

LG say that "in addition to content source detection, the new processor finely adjusts the tone mapping curve in accordance with ambient conditions to offer optimized screen brightness, leveraging its ability to understand how the human eye perceives images in different lighting".

LG Electronics is a global leader in television and audio video systems. TechRadar is hands-on with 8K TVs and foldable, rollable displays, along with new laptops and Alexa-enabled smart gadgets. LG is committed to improving customers' lives with innovative home entertainment products led by its award-winning 4K OLED TVs, ULTRA HD TVs and webOS TVs. On Monday, Vizio and LG announced they were also adding support for AirPlay and HomeKit. Apple has traditionally been closed off when it comes to giving outside hardware companies access to its ecosystem, but it may recognize it as the key to growing its increasingly important services business, which includes apps, movies, TV shows and music.

Around the back, you'll find HDMI 2.1 ports which will support 4K120 playback once it's available via an update later this year. Although the internet connection in most Aussie households would struggle to get the best out of this.
