Know When to Fold ’Em: Smart TVs
TVs keep getting bigger. Their brains get smarter. The pictures, sharper. But some of these sets are so gigantic they dominate a room. The solution? Foldable TVs. CSeed’s M1 rises from your floor as a sleek black column, then unfolds into a 165-inch 4K MicroLED display TV. It’s $400,000, but just remember what flat-screens cost when they first hit the scene.
If that price tag hurts, but size really matters, Samsung’s planning to release a 110-inch microLED TV in 2022, reported to retail for $150,000.
If you can wait, reports say the next generation of smart, storable TVs will include thin, hi-def display panels you can stick on a wall. And LG is, um, rolling out its rollable TVs internationally in 2022 after beta launches in selected countries. The television expands and retracts out of a sleek base by rolling and unrolling. LG has said the set can withstand 50,000 roll cycles. Will that cover your binge watching?
