No one in the display industry seems to be having quite as much fun as LG right now. This week, the Korean TV maker loaded its IFA 2014 booth with everything from commercially available UHD OLEDs, to brain-boggling 8K prototypes, to flex-on-command OLED panels. Naturally, we went in for a closer look.

Like its competitors, LG's booth is topsy turvy with curved UHD TVs this week—but unlike the rest, LG's selection also boasts the best panel technology we've ever tested: OLED. Ahead of every other brand, LG has managed to put UHD OLED TVs on the market, and we got hands-on time with them here at IFA Berlin. The curved 4K models will ship in 77-inch and 65-inch versions (77EG9700 and 65EC9700, respectively). Pricing and exact availability for the US have not been formally announced, but many suspect a fall arrival.

Our team also got a close look at the company's wilder showcases: a monstrous 98-inch panel with 8K resolution and a beautiful 77-inch OLED TV that bends and flattens at the press of a button. To learn more about these impressive spectacles, tune into our video and enjoy a closer look.
