LG unveiled its complete 2024 TV lineup, which includes updates to their popular OLED TVs from the previous year and innovative takes on QNED TVs. While not revolutionary compared to the 2023 lineup, LG's offerings continue to push the boundaries of display technology, ensuring that consumers have a range of options to choose from. The company revealed most of its products days before the CES 2024 Day 1 kicked off.

However, LG saved arguably the most exciting news for the event, as they unveiled its Signature OLED T, the most sophisticated and realized transparent OLED display to date. 

While Samsung showcased a transparent Micro LED display, it's important to note that this technology is not yet ready for consumer homes. These innovations hint at a future where our displays may seamlessly blend with our surroundings, revolutionizing interior design and product integration.

Samsung unveiled its innovative Music Frame, a unique blend of art and music. Accompanying the Music Frame were Samsung's latest soundbars, AI-powered TVs, and futuristic 8K projectors.

This move toward Fire OS signifies a strategic shift by Panasonic to enhance user experience and accessibility.
