One of the best sources of entertainment for us is through mediums like televisions. However, there are just so many televisions out there to choose from. But if you’re looking to purchase an ultra thin TV, you will know that the choices aren’t plenty. This is why we decided to talk about some of the best ultra thin TVs going around in 2019. Unfortunately, only a handful of brands currently offer these televisions, although the number is expanding gradually.
The best feature of ultra thin TVs is that it also comes with modern hardware as well as the best display and refresh rate. Taking this into account, it’s important to note that these televisions usually won’t go easy on your wallets. But if you’re searching for the best ultra thin TV, you should probably find it on this list.
We decided to start with this television because it’s comfortably one of the best we’ve seen on the market right now. It has a bump, although the display is ultra thin, as can be seen from the sides. Diving into the hardware details of this television, well, it comes with a 55-inch 4K Ultra HD OLED display, which should offer exceptional color clarity regardless of the content you’re watching. LG is also bundling a couple of other software features within the television like Google Assistant and LG’s own AI ThinQ which allows you to control compatible smart home products using nothing but the LG Magic Remote supplied with the TV.
In terms of audio performance, this television uses Dolby Atmos for optimum performance, so you can undoubtedly get decent sound quality from the default speakers. LG uses the α7 Intelligent Processor inside the television to boost 4K HDR performance. This TV supports standard wall mounting, giving you multiple options with regards to its placement.
It’s hard to leave out Samsung when we talk about ultra thin televisions. The company has pioneered in the TV industry over the past few years and has been at the forefront of innovation along with regional and global competitor, LG. At just 10.3 inches, this TV by Samsung is one of the thinnest in the market right now. It packs a decent 50 inch screen coupled with 4K UHD resolution. But what makes this powerful is the dedicated 4K UHD processor used inside the TV which can unlock 4K capability for practically any content you’re watching on the television.
As far as the software is concerned, Samsung has perfected this aspect as well. This television also comes with a universal guide which can help you find the TV show or movie that you’re looking for. The TV also supports apps so that you can mirror content from your smartphone onto the big screen. This television is also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, which allows enables voice control, although this may require another host device like the Amazon Echo. It comes with a total of three HDMI ports so that you can have multiple connections set up at the same time.
It’s clear that the bigger the television gets, the more space the manufacturer has to space out its components. That’s also the case with this massive television by LG. At 11.2 inches, it’s not the slimmest TVs around, especially in comparison with the TVs we’ve talked about already. But this is a small sacrifice to make considering the kind of features this TV is packing on board. For starters, it packs an enormous 86 inch 4K UHD LED IPS display. This is one of the most recently launched televisions, which means it comes with LG’s proprietary AI ThinQ on board, much like the model we discussed above.
What’s also appealing about this TV is that it comes with Alexa built-in, allowing you to interact with other smart devices in your home. This TV also comes with the LG Magic Remote, which can also help activate voice commands on your television. LG has put in significant work into the user interface as well, allowing you to access all the features quickly, while the extra real estate also boosts navigation. This TV packs LG’s second-gen α7 Intelligent Processor underneath.
Sony has been around in the television industry for a few decades now. The company has naturally evolved into making thinner televisions, and its 2019 lineup appears to be pretty impressive. This is a 65-inch television sporting a 4K Ultra HD display resolution with support for HDR content (IMAX Enhanced and Dolby Vision).
This TV is only 7.13 inches thick, which is pretty remarkable considering that’s how thin smartphones are today. This is a full-blown Android TV, which means you get access to all the features on Android, including the Google Play Store. While not all content is supported on televisions, you can even enable gaming on this TV by using a compatible Bluetooth controller.
This TV uses Sony’s proprietary Triluminous display which offers a broader spectrum of red, green, and blue colors to enhance content significantly. Using something known as Acoustic Surface technology, the TV can produce audio from the entire screen for the real cinematic experience. The TV also comes included with an IR blaster and a Sony smart remote.
Samsung’s big televisions are almost exclusively razor-thin, and this 75 incher is no exception. The TV comes with an 8K QLED display, which gives it a significant advantage over the rest of the competition. There aren’t a lot of 8K televisions in the market right now, and it seems like Samsung already has one of the best. This television was launched earlier this year, and while its pricing can sound astronomical to some customers, it’s undoubtedly the best TV on the market right now.
This TV is 9.49 inches thick, which isn’t the best, but certainly doable given the hardware it’s packing. To power through 4K HDR content, the TV comes with a dedicated processor named Quantum Processor 8K, which Samsung claims is its most powerful TV processor ever. Further, the TV also comes included with Samsung’s One Connect Box as well as a smart remote (with batteries). It’s worth mentioning that online retailers like Amazon are currently offering bundles with this television, including the Samsung HW-N950 soundbar.

As you guessed, this is a 4K television, and it also sports LG’s AI ThinQ, which allows it to run both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa (built-in). At 0.2 inches, this TV certainly has no competition, making this the winner of the thinnest TV race, well, for the time being anyway. This is achieved thanks to the unique arrangement of the TV components, offering a wafer-thin screen from the sides. Given its unique design, LG is marketing this as the OLED Wallpaper TV.

With features like HDR10+ as well as the Quantum Dot technology, this TV makes no compromises in the hardware department. Samsung is using the Quantum Processor 4K on this TV which makes 4K and HDR content run smoothly.
