Every year at CES, LG gives us a look at its craziest ideas for the future of display technology. At a press conference earlier yesterday, the company showed off its refreshed OLED televisions, regarded by many as the best on the market. In a private briefing at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Gizmodo was shown LG's bold concepts for the future of displays, which are (unbelievably) getting thinner and brighter. They are among the most lifelike displays I've ever seen.

At 2.57mm thick, LG's new OLED W7 television might be the thinnest giant television ever made. I don't want to say that. It feels like hyperbole, and over the next few days I have no doubt that a lot of other televisions are going to use similar tech for similar results, but look at that image above. Note how that 65-inch display is actually thinner than that woman's finger. Now come back and tell me that isn't incredible.

Step aside, LG. You're not the only player in the game with a perfect-black-level OLED television any more. Sony just announced a new OLED 4K TV at CES, and it ups the ante with a new, more powerful imaging processor and sound that comes from behind the screen rather than below it.

If you're buying a TV this year — and it's a good year to buy a TV — then you have only a few choices to make before you've picked out a great screen. As well as working out whether you want 4K or HDR, and what screen size you're after in the first place, and what inbuilt smart features you want, your main choice is what TV backlighting technology you want your new big-screen telly to use. We're here to tell you the difference between edge-lit and back-lit LED, LCD and OLED, quantum dot and local dimming, and more.

In Formula 1, each constructors' cars feature incredibly advanced technology that slowly trickles down into road cars over the next decade. In the world of technology, things move much faster, and that's why Hisense's surprisingly affordable ULED TVs have the same quantum dot colour gamut widening tech that we've seen on top-tier LG and Samsung screens at a fraction of the price.
