The world's largest consumer electronics trade show, CES, is the place to be if you want to see the latest TV tech that'll hit stores in the following 12 months.

TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG and Panasonic and many more grace the show floor in Las Vegas and some are truly outstanding kit.

But don't worry if you couldn't make it to CES 2019 yourself, we've been keeping our eyes out for the best TVs of the show. Here they are.

LG Signature OLED TV R

LG always pulls out a surprise or two during CES, especially when it comes to its OLED TVs. Last year it was the W8 - a superthin panel that sticks to a wall using magnets and looks like wallpaper.

This year it is the Signature OLED TV R. Not only is it a superb-looking 65-inch 4K HDR OLED panel, it comes with its own 5.2 channel Dolby Atmos speaker set into a cabinet underneath. Here's the most magical part, however; the TV rolls up inside the cabinet when not in use.

The set has a few different options. You can watch it in Full View, with the entire screen on show; Line View, where only a part of it appears above the cabinet, giving you important information such as the time and weather report; and there is Zero View, where the OLED panel is rolled up inside the cabinet, completely out of view.

The beauty then is that you can use the cabinet as a speaker system in the room. Amazing.

We do expect a catch though: the price. LG is yet to announce how much the OLED TV R will cost. We very much expect it to be in the multiple thousands, sadly. Still, it's one of the most impressive innovations in television tech we've ever seen.

Samsung QLED 8K

Samsung will expand its 8K TV offering in 2019 with a new series of sets featuring the best images and resolutions possible.

The daddy of these will be a mighty 98-inch model that effectively takes up the entire wall.

It will head-up a range that also includes 65, 75, 82 and 85-inch variants and, like those, features Samsung's proprietary picture upscaling technology that intelligently scales Full HD and 4K images to 8K, to cater for the home consumer who can't yet get hold of native 8K content.

One of the biggest announcements by Samsung at this year's CES is that all of its 2019 models (along with 2018 TVs) will include an app for Apple's iTunes Movies and TV Shows service. You won't, therefore, need an Apple TV to view films and programming purchased or rented on iTunes.

These QLEDs, like all other supporting Samsung sets, will also receive AirPlay 2 compatibility. LG and Sony have also announced its new TVs this year will follow suit.

Sony Bravia Master Series Z9G

Like the Samsung above, the Sony Bravia Master Series Z9G is an 8K TV. It also comes in up to 98-inches and will have AirPlay 2 compatibility.

There is also an 85-inch version coming in 2019 and both use Sony's X1 Ultimate image processing to up-convert any content to an 8K resolution.

They use LCD panels rather than OLED - even though Sony also has a fine range of OLED TVs coming later this year - but a new version of the Backlight Master Drive system that has been redesigned to suit 8K should provide black levels as good as any other tech.

Like Samsung and LG, Sony has partnered with Apple to introduce AirPlay 2 on these televisions, so you can send them video, images and music from your iPhone, iPad or Apple Mac devices. And because they are both Android TVs, you can also make use of Google Chromecast - the best of both worlds.

Prices and availability for the 8K TVs are yet to be revealed. Don't expect them to come cheap, however.

Samsung "The Wall" Micro LED

Sadly still not planned for release in 2019, but worthy of making this list nonetheless as it's now thought to become commercially available in 2020, the Micro LED TV concept was shown at CES again and still impresses.

It is made up of multiple, small LED panels which can be arranged to make a screen of any size without a dip in picture quality.

The one on show during a Samsung preview event prior to the trade show opening was 75-inches but another 219-inch version was also available to ogle at.

As well as screen size, the Micro LED system can adapt to different shapes. Want a 21:9 screen for a movie experience? Yep, it can do that too.

The Micro LED technology is also capable of incredible brightness, more than OLED, yet retain deep, involving black levels. Samsung is sure to bet the house on it in future.

Panasonic GZ2000 OLED TV

Panasonic is one of very few manufacturers that supports both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision as high dynamic range technologies and the GZ2000 OLED TV will be the first set to offer them.

That means the set will choose whichever is best depending on the source content and show it at their fullest.

It is also the first TV to support Dolby Atmos in the set fully, offering up-firing speakers built into the television itself. The sound signature is also tuned by audiophile brand Technics, so you can imagine its potential.

Support for Google Assistant and Alexa is built into the GZ2000, which will be available in 55 and 65-inch sizes, so it could work as the hub for a great smart home experience.

We are yet to find out release date or pricing, however.

Sony Bravia Master Series AG9

As well as the mighty 8K Master Series model above, Sony has improved its 4K HDR OLED TV flagship range.

The Sony Bravia Master Series AG9 comes in 55, 65 and 77-inch screen sizes and, like last year's Bravia AF8, uses the display panel as a vibrant speaker. That means it saves a dramatic amount of space thanks to no visible speaker system.

This year's sound tech is called Acoustic Surface Audio+ and it can even utilise the entire TV as the centre speaker in a general surround sound setup.

As well as HDR10, the Sony TV features Dolby Vision high dynamic range support, plus a brand exclusive Netflix Calibrated Mode. This means video streamed through Netflix is tuned to look its best. IMAX Enhanced mode is on board too, along with the TV version of Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound.

Release timings and pricing will be revealed later this year. It's been confirmed that the AG9 will be one of the new Sony TV series to feature Apple's AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility. It is also an Android TV so features hundreds of apps through Google Play.

Another 8K TV to make the list is rather unique. It is the only one that use OLED picture tech rather than LCD.

The 88-inch LG Z9 features the company's new α9 Gen 2 processor that dramatically improves noise reduction and scales all content up to an 8K resolution.

The AI capabilities also refine HDR content on the fly, enhancing brightness where needed while retaining the trademark black levels so associated with OLED.

Dolby Atmos tuning is on board to create a virtual 5.1 surround effect from a slim speaker but it is likely that anyone who will buy - afford - the 8K OLED TV is likely to match it with a bombastic sound system anyway.

Like all of LG's 2019 models, it will come with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support. LG is also adding Alexa voice assistant functionality to its sets this year, with this 88-incher being no exception.

We don't yet know when it will hit the streets but cannot wait to test it fully ourselves.
