When it comes to CES, South Korean manufacturer LG has become somewhat of a mainstay. The company has specifically been involved with debuting new display technologies and TVs in particular. This year's CES is no different, as LG unveils its new lineup of Super UHD TVs for 2017. LG is aiming for this batch of premium TVs to make an impact, as they tout nano cell technology, according to the company. 

LG says this will render the most realistic images currently available in a SUHD TV, along with offering active HDR (High Dynamic Range) alongside other modes of HDR, as well as Dolby Vision technology. The advantage of the nano cells is that the display features uniformly sized particles (one nanometre each), which facilitates greater image and colour accuracy. 

The new lineup of TVs will also be smart, utilising LG's own webOS 3.5 system that allows for web browsing, and linking to streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon prime Video. While LG South Africa has not commented on when these new Super UHD TVs will land locally, the company will have a 55" SJ900 model as one of its flagships. The TV also sports an ultra sleek design, measuring 6.9 mm at its thinnest point. 

To see the new nano cell touting Super UHD TVs via the Las Vegas live stream, check out LG's YouTube channel at 18:00 tonight (4 January).
