LG held its annual press conference at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas Tuesday.
The company is focusing on two major areas in the coming year: cars and the internet of things.
Every year, LG, one of the world's biggest makers of liquid crystal displays, shows off its newest, flashiest TV displays, and 2016 — which marks the 50th anniversary of LG manufacturing televison sets — is no different.
Onstage, LG announced its Signature OLED G6 television — its best, sleekest television yet. It was designed with one principle in mind — minimalism.
The television itself is only 2.57 millimeters thick — as thin as four stacked credit cards, the company boasted onstage.
LG also talked about its partnerships with Volkswagen and Google. Gayathri Rajan, VP of Product Management at Google, also spoke at LG's press conference about the company's partnership with LG.
"You may ask, why is LG so interested in cars?" President and CEO of LG Mobile Electronics Skott Ahn said onstage Tuesday morning. "The amount of time spent in cars continue to increase...We can at least make it safer and more enjoyable."
LG unveiled its LG Signature series onstage, a line of ultra-premium products like a washer that lets you wash two loads of laundry at the same time, and a smart fridge with a sleek, built-in smart display. They're really expensive-looking smart home products; it's LG's vision of the internet of things.
Here's a look at the LG Signature lineup:
The LG smart washing machine looks like anything but a conventional washing machine — in fact, it looks like something from outer space. It's a tall, white rectangular washer with a big round door on the front for loading.
On a typical washer, you'd expect to find a bunch of knobs sticking out of the machine that you'd press and turn to make the machine function. But on LG's smart washer, the controls are embedded into the glass door, and the touch screen controls the main washer and the second mini washer, located underneath.
Earlier this week, LG used CES to show off a couple interesting innovations: an 18-inch display that can be "rolled up like a newspaper," and a paper-thin 55-inch OLED TV display, and a pair of 65-inch OLED displays with "extreme" concave and convex curves. The OLED TV displays are part of LG's push into luxury, high-end smart home appliances.
