Even though CES 2017 does not officially kick off until Thursday, January 5, the likes of LG and Samsung will be revealing their intentions a little early, with today, Jan 3 being very likely.
Every new LG SUPER UHD TV will also come equipped with Active HDR and Dolby Vision.
Going back to LG's new sets, a key feature of Nano Cells is that they're apparently able to absorb surplus light wavelengths (including distinct colors), resulting in purer, more accurate color reproduction. Ideal for large, high-resolution TVs, LG SUPER UHD TVs with Nano Cell technology deliver consistent colors at wider viewing angles with virtually no color difference for viewers seated directly in front of the screen, or for those watching from off-center angles. Moreover, the TVs' inclusion of LG's HDR Effect improves SDR content by providing frame-by-frame to improve brightness in specific areas.
LG has even teamed with Technicolor to ensure color accuracy is top notch, using a special Technicolor Expert Mode, and support for Advanced HDR. LG Nano Cell technology dramatically reduces instances of color fading, image instability and other color degradation issues. The 2017 collection includes the new SJ9500, SJ8500 and SJ8000. LG is likewise promising some more sophisticated way to deal high dynamic range imagery regarding of its configuration. Viewers can instantly access their favorite content provider by pressing a single button on the remote, tapping into a wide variety of entertaining 4K programming. You can also zoom in and out using the scroll wheel.

The webOS platform, meanwhile, now features a Magic Link feature that provides instant recommendations for finding content and accessing information about actors and characters on-screen.
I'll bring you an update on how these TVs are shaping up as soon as I've had the chance to spend time with them at the CES.
The flagship 55-inch SJ9500, which is 6.9mm at its thinnest point, offers the best quality picture LG has ever mustered from an LCD set, the company says. This steps up to a "Frame-less Design" with a crescent-shaped stand. LG calls the design a four-sided cinema screen that minimizes the width of the bezel trim around all four sides of the screen, including the bottom edge.
