There are many ultra-thin aka slim TVs in the market, thanks to significant advancements in display technology. These ultra-flat displays are perfect for saving space in the living room while adding a trendy touch to any room.
These are the best options to pick from if you want to replace your older HDTV with a 4K model that takes up as little room as possible.
Best Ultra-thin Smart TVs
1. Samsung The Frame
The Frame is a super flat-screen TV that doubles as an artwork. This smart TV has access to fine art and puts these on display. So, this minute you might be watching a movie, and the next, you’re looking at a work of art. Awesome, right?
If you’re more interested in gaming or streaming, an OLED TV is a better choice. This TV, nevertheless, is a truly incredible piece of technology for discerning buyers obsessed with aesthetics and home design.
The Frame displays your favorite artwork when the TV is turned off, effectively turning the screen into a digital canvas. Thanks to the thin frame, it will also look precisely like any other piece of artwork hanging in your home.
Customers must purchase specific works of art to exhibit from a collection of 1,200 works from museums across the world and new work by current artists. You may also exhibit your images or join up for a subscription to the Samsung Art Store.
The Frame also has motion sensors, so when no one is around, the display turns off totally to save energy, but when motion is detected, the display (or should we say canvas) automatically displays your art collection.
2. Insignia NS-43DF710NA21
The Insignia NS-43DF710NA21 is a good choice if you want a budget-friendly flat-screen TV for a mid-sized living room or bedroom.
The 43-inch TV is 3.2 inches thick, and it’s also available in larger screen sizes like 55-inch, 65-inch, and 70-inch. This Fire Edition TV comes with an Amazon Fire TV stick, eliminating the need to plug one in to access streaming services.
Colors and shadows will appear more lifelike thanks to the NS-43DF710NA21’s HDR 10+ compatibility, and its dual speaker system features DTS Studio Sound for better performance.
Three HDMI ports, a coaxial input, A/V inputs, an optical audio output, one USB port, an Ethernet port, and a headphone jack are all included in this flat-screen TV from Insignia.
3. TCL 6-Series Ultra-Thin 55-inch TV
The TCL 55-inch 6-Series is worth a chance because of its excellent value-per-cost ratio and decent thinness. The QLED Quantum Dot panel on this Smart TV provides 4K visual quality.
It comes with THX Certified Game Mode as well as enhanced voice control functions for better user control. Four HDMI inputs are available, and the Mini-LED technology provides exceptional picture clarity.
Although the frame isn’t as thin as other models on the market, it still manages to stay under 3″. On the surface, it appears to be a low-cost television, yet it has a lot of punch in terms of performance. The TV is equipped with Dolby Vision HDR, which brings details to a whole new level.
4. SAMSUNG 43-Inch CLED Q60A Series
The Samsung Q60A is a more budget-friendly option for an ultra-thin TV, and it earns a spot on our list. It has a lot of innovative features that help it produce excellent picture quality. The low price can be attributed to the smaller screen size of 43 inches. If that’s too tiny for you, the series also offers different sizes up to 85 inches.
The ultra-thin depth of this TV’s design is undoubtedly its most notable feature, making it perfect for wall mounting. The brilliant colors and dramatic contrast of Dual LED and Quantum technologies featured here will make you appreciate it more.
It has an AirSlim design that emphasizes minimalist details and the slimmest possible TV appearance. While a TV remote is included in the box, you can also use the integrated Alexa assistant to set up voice control instructions.
5. LG Alexa 4K Smart OLED TV
The LG GX Series is the company’s response to Samsung’s The Frame since it is designed to serve as a digital art frame and a smart TV. The GX is significantly thinner than The Frame, measuring less than an inch thick (0.9 inches to be exact) and looking stunning when mounted flat on the wall.
The GX, on the other hand, does not have access to the Samsung Art Store’s collection of pieces of art. The GX does have an outstanding picture quality. The OLED display is exceptionally sharp, and the a9 3rd generation 4K processor produces some of the best visuals and sound in its class.
A TV this slim can’t possibly have great sound, and the GX is no different. If you truly want to get the most out of your viewing experience, we highly recommend pairing this ultra-thin TV with an external speaker.
6. Sony XR-55A90J
In terms of performance, the Sony A90J is a knockout. It pushes OLED picture quality to new heights while keeping the unmistakable authenticity for which Sony is known. It also sounds far superior to any other television you might be considering.
Hardcore gamers should hold off for now, as the set doesn’t yet support VRR (an update has been promised, but no timetable has been given), and we found the 4K@120Hz support to be a touch flaky.
If movies and TV series are your priority and if you have a large budget, the Sony A90J will be a good companion. It’s costly, but it’s superior to most competitors.
7. LG Alexa Built-in C1 Series 48-83 Inch
If you’re looking for an OLED 4K TV with an ultra-thin design, the LG C1 Series is an attractive option. This television is exceptionally wonderful to add to any living room, with an astounding thickness of only 1.8′′.
This model stands out because of its thin design, but it’s also a great TV in terms of image quality. With self-lit pixels, OLED technology provides exceptional contrast and color performance.
To meet the dimensions of your room, the TV is available in a variety of sizes. You can choose a diagonal size between 48 and 83 inches. This is a well-balanced 55-inch television that should appeal to the majority of people.
Apart from providing a magnificent cinematic experience, this ultra-thin TV also includes Game Optimizer technology for improved game performance and enhanced voice control features.
8. LG WX 65-inch Wallpaper 4K Smart OLED TV
One of the flaws of razor-thin TVs is the lack of any place to put good-sounding speakers. The LG WX series addresses this issue by completely isolating the speaker system from the display and connecting the two pieces of equipment with a paper-thin tether that resembles scotch tape.
This achieves two goals: the 0.15-inch display (as previously said, razor-thin) can be flat against the wall while yet receiving soundbar-quality audio from your pricey flat-screen TV. Compared to the narrowest TVs on the market, the LG WX Wallpaper is a significant improvement.
9. LG G1 Gallery Series OLED
Are you looking for a more elegant flat-screen TV? The LG G1 OLED is a stunning television that improves the clean aesthetic of the LG Gallery Series OLED from last year.
LG’s latest OLED evo technology changes the panel structure to wring out even more brightness – without increasing blooming effects or, according to LG, the risk of burn-in – is the real star here.
The LG G1 appears to be a true revolution for the OLED TV manufacturer. It undoubtedly offers an upgrade above the less expensive LG C1 OLED – unlike last year, when the CX and GX models were vastly different in price but effectively gave the same picture quality.
10. Sony Bravia X90J
The new Sony X90J is one of the top smart TVs for gamers.
It offers excellent image quality, thanks in part to Sony’s new Cognitive XR engine, which allows for excellent upscaling and contrast adjustment.
The X90J also comes with Google’s new TV smart platform, which allows for simple setup and a wide range of app support, as well as the benefits of Google Cast from Android devices. There’s also Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.
When it comes to gaming, the X90J features a 120Hz panel with 4K resolution and two full-spec HDMI 2.1 connectors for your Xbox Series X and PS5, as well as VRR (variable refresh rate) and ALLM (auto low latency mode, for sub-10ms lag).
If you don’t enable ‘Enhanced format’ for your selected HDMI port in the picture options, you won’t be able to use the 2.1 specifications.
And that’s our round-up of the best slim TVs you can get right now. As we hinted earlier, ultra-thin TVs like this usually have poor audio quality. To make up for this, you’re better off using an external speaker. Also, it’s a lot better to navigate your TV with a wireless keyboard.
