Featuring a large, semi-transparent touch screen on one of its doors, the fridge can reveal its contents with a double-tap of the display - no need to open the door and let the cold air escape. The company first announced the tech a couple of years ago, but now it's ready to show off a 65-inch, 4K version of this absurdly futuristic display. That's why LG have decided this display would feature an 8K resolution.

The TV boasts maximum resolution with 33 million pixels (7680x4320), which is 16 times more than FHD (1920x1080) and 4 times more than UHD (3840x2160).

What does this all mean for us smartphone enthusiasts? As much as their content libraries grow, they won't be upgrading to 8K for many, many years, so don't stress, 4K is here to stay for a long time. But it's most likely to be a prototype as well.

Now, an expensive little robot not working when you want to get recipes or check on your laundry is one thing, but LG is looking to make a play in the services market with special robots optimized for hotels and groceries. Even as smartphones have begun to reach their limits of acceptable size and see diminishing returns as display resolutions push higher, TVs just keep getting bigger, sharper, and thinner. LG's ThinQ TVs also function as smart home hubs, offering access to other compatible smart home products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and many other devices that can connect to the TV via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The upgrades promise more accurate colors, deeper blacks and higher peak brightness. According to the U.S. research firm IHS Markit, sales of TVs with 75-inch panels or larger are predicted to rise to 1.6 million units this year from 1.1 million units last year. These OLED screens might be made by the Display division of LG.
